Cloudy Skies

Today was another cool cloudy day, nearly hiding the sun.  That’s not a complaint considering the tornadoes and snow and all kinds of bad weather around us.  It’s just an observation.


I’m also pleased to say that by the time we start kidding this weekend or early next week, the weather should be perfect!  Now I might be gloating a little bit, but please don’t hold it against me. I’m very grateful for this good kidding weather.

Bob’s Scavenger Hunt

This week’s Scavenger Hunt is all about Bob.  The items are: Time, On My Plate, Animal, Negative Space, and Photographer’s Choice.

There’s a lot on my plate, so I’m enjoying the longer days.  The goats are going out to pasture.  They might be complaining that there’s a Bob on their plate.

I also have time to take a walk in the pasture now that the days are long and warm.  Bob oftentimes likes to walk with me.

Obviously, Bob is an animal.  I’m thinking of making him a livestock guardian cat since he’s so comfortable out here in pasture.

(Negative Space) He can sit on the rock and watch over everyone for me.

Photographer’s Choice.  Bob doesn’t always like to pose for pictures, but when he does, it’s magic.

I love my little Bob cat.

Thank Goatness it’s Friday

That means time for Random 5 Friday.  First of all, thanks to all the well wishes for Sallie and her kids.  We’re still waiting.  It’s not uncommon for them to appear to be in labor, especially when there is a front that goes through.  It was a false alarm though.  We continue to check her frequently.  I’m sure she’d prefer to avoid the actual physical exam I’ve subjected her to a few times, but I have to know if her cervix is closed or if it’s open and she’s ready to deliver.  I’m watching her especially closely because of the problems she’s had in the last couple of years.  Hopefully, this time her kids will arrive safely and healthy and she’ll be able to feed them.



I’m loving the longer days!  I get to go out to pasture with the goats in the evening.  They seem to be enjoying the longer days too.



I can certainly tell I’m out of shape from the winter.  My lack of exercising started last July with my foot surgery.  I’m really enjoying my walks, but I’m really looking forward to even longer walks and not feeling like I’ve run a marathon afterwards.



The warm weather and sunshine means our snow is virtually all gone.  We’re almost past mud season too.  I actually wore shoes instead of rubber boots to do chores tonight.


My camera came back from being fixed after it came back broken from its cleaning.  It works now.  I’m happy.  Although, I think I’ll continue using the old one outside through the kidding season.

I’m also sharing with Skywatch Friday, Camera Critters, Saturday’s Critters, and Weekly Top Shot.
