Friday’s Hunt v2.13

23 Sep

Welcome back to Friday’s Hunt.  I want to thank everyone who joined in last week.  I had a lot of fun visiting everyone who linked up.  It’s very simple.  Anyone can participate.  The link opens at 7pm Central time and will close Sunday at 7pm, so you have plenty of time to enter. Hopefully, you’ll be inspired to visit some of the other entries.

If you didn’t participate this week but would like to next week, the topics will be:  Starts with N, Week’s Favorite, and I made this.  I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top. I am crazy busy with teaching and working on the farm right now, but I will make sure to visit all participants.  Without further ado, here’s my interpretations for the week.

Starts with M: My magnificent Minnie Pearl, our herd queen.

Week’s Favorite:  I haven’t taken too many pictures this week, but I did wander around and take a couple of pictures one afternoon.  I can’t decide which is my favorite.

Work:  Well, my off-farm job has been horrible with the heat this week.  It leaves me exhausted and not wanting to work at home.  I did manage to find a little time to make a few wax melts and a candle.  For some reason, I didn’t have these fall fragrances done for the start of the pumpkin patch.  I’ll never be caught up with all the work I need to get done.

Now it’s your turn!

Well, actually, she’s Zoe.

I do think she looks cute in the flowers though.

I do hope you’ll come back and join me for Friday’s Hunt.  The items for this week are at the top of my side bar.

Friday’s Hunt v2.1

1 Jul

Welcome back to Friday’s Hunt.  I want to thank everyone who joined in last week.  I had a lot of fun visiting everyone who linked up.  I can’t believe we’ve made it through our first round of the alphabet.  I’m excited to begin our second round! It’s very simple.  Anyone can participate.  The link opens at 7pm Central time and will close Sunday at 7pm, so you have plenty of time to enter. Hopefully, you’ll be inspired to visit some of the other entries.

If you didn’t participate this week but would like to next week, the topics will be:  Starts with B, Week’s Favorite, and patriotic.  It might be fun to see how many flags for different states/countries we can get (but you don’t have to because I’m all about letting people interpret things however they want).  I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top. I am crazy busy on the farm right now, but I will make sure to visit all participants.  Without further ado, here’s my interpretations for the week.

Starts with A:  My avian babies are doing well.  We still have two of the four younger goslings.  I’m not sure what happened to the other two.  They were always a bit slower and not as lively as the two that are left.

The two big ones are doing well; although, they’ve reached an awkward stage.  It’s made more obvious by the lack of feathers yet.  June was so hot (until the last few days) that they hadn’t even started growing feathers yet.

My other avian baby is the peachick from last summer.  This one has suddenly starting looking a lot more like daddy than mom.  My peachick is now a peacock, which means I need to find a new home for him.

Week’s Favorite:  I got to spend time working in the soap room this week!  It was a lot of fun.  I restocked my supply of lip balm.  I got to use the nifty little holder that my dad made for me.

I also tried something new this week.  I finally made the leap and made liquid soap!

It did take a little longer than I thought it would, so I had to get up at one in the morning to turn my crock pot off, but I think it turned out quite well! It certainly bubbles.

Soon, I should have it ready to take to the farmer’s market and have it for my open farm on Saturday mornings.  It will also become the base for shampoo!

Macro:  I have a hard time with true macro, but here are some close ups of the flowers I’ve seen in my pasture.
