Friday’s Hunt v2.14

30 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 O, Week’s Favorite, and eyes.  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:  Now that Daisy has discovered she likes me, she’s gotten to be quite nosy.  She’s always checking things out to see if it’s something tasty in my hands.

Week’s Favorite:  I love seeing good weather and people enjoying the pumpkin patch!  It’s been slow so far this year, but I’m hoping that we’ll pick up now that we’re into cooler weather and it’s October.

I made this:  Well, I made a lot of this.  We also have crafts that other people have made too.

Today was a bit windy.  André’s ears and wattles were both blowing in the wind.

I made labels for my lotion.  It’s not perfect, but I can live with it.

I played with the image below to make it look more like a drawing.

I also have my labels done for the Smoky Patchouli soap, which is a new fragrance.  It’s been busy around here, but in a good way!

I do hope you’ll consider coming back next weekend to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  The items for next week are listed at the top of my sidebar.

I’m sharing with SOOC Sunday, Macro Monday, Shadow Shot Sunday, Monday Mellow Yellows, and The Good. The Random. The Fun.

My town is an amazing small town!

Not only do I love that you have a farm just inside the city limits (or more than one), but they are super supportive of my farm just south of the town.

I do appreciate all of their support, and I hope they like the products and services that I provide.

Last weekend, I started milking half of Clover. Really.  She lost her buckling, and her doe will still only suck from one side, so I’m milking the other one out.  She’s figured out this is the entrance to the new milk room.

In these two glass jars is one day’s worth of milking one side of her out.  I think that’s pretty good!

Milk_5693ews

I am using this milk to make homemade goat’s milk lotion (and freezing some for more soap) to sell.

I’m really excited about making lotion, and I’ll have more new items coming to my soap room.  I’m going to do another open farm this coming Saturday.

Hopefully, I stay healthy and feel like it’s a good idea to promote it a bit more this time.  Hopefully, I can do this every weekend once I’m done teaching for the summer.

If you want, there’s still time to join in Friday’s Hunt.  This week’s items are at the top of my sidebar.

I’m sharing with Scavenger Hunt Sunday (items in bold), Weekend Reflections, and The Barn Collective.
