Scavenger Hunt Sunday

The list for this week’s Scavenger Hunt Sunday is:  favorite, angled, curved, cropped, and texture.

Cropped:  Here are a couple of highly cropped images from the visitor I had yesterday morning.

I am glad he was just passing by because Llenny was nowhere to be seen.  Llazy lloafing llama.



Curved:  I’m also glad the geese were not out on the very same hill when the coyote went by because I’d prefer they stick around to be annoying and make me laugh rather than being a coyote’s lunch.  You’ll notice the curved lines from where we made hay off the pasture last fall.


Angled:  Speaking of hay, we’re half way through the winter, and you can tell I’ve used some hay from the barn.  Luckily, I have plenty left for the second half of the winter.

Texture and Favorite:  Myson was using the dangling, rusty hinge to entertain himself yesterday.

I’m not going to tell you whether the image is a favorite or Myson is a favorite.  You’ll just have to guess on that one.  Another guess…

If you pay close attention to my sidebar, you might be able to guess what’s coming in tomorrow’s post! ;-)

I do hope you’ll come back on Friday to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  If you wish to participate, the items are at the top of my sidebar.

I’m also sharing with Mosaic Monday, Macro Monday, I Heart Macro, and Tom’s Barn Collective.

A Cold Weekend

The Good:  It’s been another cold weekend.  When you can’t get above -4*F (-20*C) by lunch time, that’s the day for a yummy vegetable and barley soup.


The Random:  Saturday I was out checking on everyone with the cold.  When I went to take a picture of Minnie, I noticed someone checking me out.



You know you’re interesting when the llama finally comes too close for a macro shot.

The Fun:  I counted nine batches of soap that I need to make and three more that I probably should make.  I ordered my oils/fats, and then I’ll once again make soap in my kitchen.

I dearly hope my soap room is finished by the time I have to clean it up.  As much fun as it is to make soap, I’m really ready to move it out of my living quarters.

I do hope you’ll consider coming back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  The items are in the top of my sidebar.  You can participate in all three items or just one.

Sharing with The Good. The Random. The Fun., Macro Monday, Mosaic Monday, and I Heart Macro.

Back on Duty

After Llenny was sleeping on the job the other day, I thought I’d show you how it looks when he’s guarding the goats.



They were all out in pasture this evening.

As the sun set, and I called the goats to come back up with me, Llenny sprang into action.  Seriously.  He was running like a llunatic.  I don’t know if he was truly herding the goats or what, but the girls do not look happy.

As soon as they all started across the ditch, he doubled back and looked for a place that he wanted to cross.


Then he was off like a shot to catch up to the herd.  Seriously, my flash could not keep up with him.


See how fast he’s moving by the blurred fence in the background.


Is it just me, or does he have all four feet off the ground?


I was very impressed!

I’m sharing with Song-ography.  The song I’ve chosen is Running by No Doubt.  It seemed appropriate after he was sleeping on the job.


Running all the time
Running to the future
With you right by my side

I’m the one you chose
Out of all the people
You wanted me the most
I’m so sorry that I’ve fallen
Help me up lets keep on running
Don’t let me fall out of love

Running, running
As fast as we can
Do you think we’ll make it?
(Do you think we’ll make it?)
We’re running
Keep holding my hand
It’s so we don’t get separated

Be the one I need
Be the one I trust most
Don’t stop inspiring me
Sometimes it’s hard to keep on running
We work so much to keep it going
Don’t make me want to give up
