When it Rains…

19 Jul

Well, I am declaring our horrible dry summer to be over.  We had rain again all day today.  My barnyard is actually muddy!  The only ones who like that though are the geese (notice some little gosling is getting feathers!).


The goats hibernated all day.  They just finally got to go out to pasture to eat this afternoon.



The kids are still in the barn.

One bad thing about the rain we’ve had in the last couple of weeks is that the worm eggs rise to the top of the barnyard.  Add to that the kids are still not all going out to pasture, and that’s a recipe for worms.  Can you see in Pixie’s eyes that she looks tired.  Poor baby isn’t feeling well.  Everyone got wormed today.



Aside from worming kids, I spent my day in the soap room.  I got three batches of soap made.

Can’t wait to see how the design turns out on this one.


I guess I’ll have to finish weeding the pumpkins when we have our 110 – 115*F (43.3 – 46.1*C) heat indexes for the next three days.

Hope everyone else that is flooding and baking stays safe!

Scavenger Hunt

29 Jun

I’ve missed Ashley’s Scavenger Hunt Sunday the last couple of weeks, so I had to join in.  The topics this week:  pink, wheels, friend, emotion, and sweet.

Sweet:  I can’t think of anything as sweet as two kids sleeping together.

Pink:  Unless it’s two kids sleeping together using their maa as a pillow.  I just love those pink noses!  Okay, technically they are salmon or coral or some other derivative of pink, but they are cute!

Emotion:  I think Muffin looks the epitome of happiness!



Wheels:  We’re still wet and muddy, so these are the only wheels I could find.  You never know where you’ll see them around the house.

Friend:  My newest kitty friend, Jules, likes to play with it.  She likes to play with most anything.

This sweet looking girl is really a monster!  I guess that’s a good thing.
