The Chain Saw was Here

18 Apr

My dad brought his chain saw out over the weekend.  We cut down my apple tree that has been laying down for the last few years.  Unbelievably, it was starting to get blossoms.  I will miss it.

This is all that is left of my peach tree.  You might remember that it split in a storm last year.

Finally, he cut down the big walking stick tree.  It was mostly dead, and it was under the pine trees right by my garden.  I’ll never figure out the planting logic of the people who lived here before me.

I did ask my dad if he was going to carve something out of the stump, but he told me I shouldn’t hold my breathe while I was waiting for him to get it done.

I also took out the fence I put up last year to keep goats out of the garden, so Sky got to explore over there.

It gives him a lot more room to run and play.

Hopefully, I can get some good weather to finish cleaning it up, so I can get my garden planted.

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

Friday’s Hunt v3.14

7 Apr

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 O, Week’s Favorite, and blossom.   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 N: The list of all N goats that have ever been on my farm:  Nancy, Nano, Nate, Nellie, Nero, Newton, Nick, Noel, Norm, and Nosey.  I have to share Nick, who was quite the dancing goat.  He also looked a lot like his dad, Marley.

Week’s Favorite: I love my Sky!

Blue: We have blue skies!  It is so nice to have some sunshine and nice weather.

Now it’s your turn!

I’m also sharing with Saturday’s Critters.

The pasture is really starting to get some green to it.

The goats have enjoyed being out there.

After our rain that left the barnyard rather muddy, they actually decided it was much nicer to nap out on the hill rather than come in the barnyard for their afternoon siesta.  Don’t worry.  They come back to the safety of the barn at night.

We had another soaking rain all day today.  I swear I can stand here and watch the pasture turn more green.

Unfortunately, it also means everyone was unhappy today.  The goats were wet because they didn’t want to wait for me to give them hay, or they were hungry in the barn.  It also means Sky was cooped up in the house all day.

Of course, he did track lots of mud in after his potty break.

He was a little wild when I got home.  Okay.  He was a lot wild when I got home.

I hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items listed at the top of my side bar.
