A Happy Surprise!

I was right, and I was wrong.  Pistol was bred through the fence like I thought.

I am pretty sure, though, that if you could have seen me yesterday morning when I peeked in the buck room where she is at, you’d have seen my eyes do a cartoon eyes-popping-out-of-my-head kind of thing.  I was not expecting kids so soon.

We have kids!  Two boys.  Did you notice I updated my buck and doe count in the sidebar?





They are already snugglers!  And Tommy is as bouncy as a tigger.

Our warm weather was perfect for kidding!  It also gave everyone else a chance to go outside.  Hopefully, they wear off some of their crabby cranky cooped up energy.

In other news, I decided to try to prepare for the upcoming blizzard by turning the Ranger around in the garage.


It didn’t work so well.  The ground is soft and sloppy. There’s no gravel.  There’s a horrid slope.  I kind of slid.  Luckily, my nephew came to rescue it before our nasty weather tomorrow.

I do hope you come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt this week.  The items are at the top of my sidebar.

I’m sharing today with The Good. The Random. The Fun., Monday Mellow Yellows, and Ruby Tuesday.

Scavenger Hunt Sunday

This week Ashley has given us the following topics for Scavenger Hunt Sunday:  light, sky, under, artificial light, and space.

Sky:  We are warmer toay.  That’s nice, but the skies are still grey and gloomy.

Light:  Yeah.  It’s light out, but there’s no sunshine.

Space:  This space will soon be growing with crops again.  I might be looking forward to spring.

Artificial Light:  Helen was still hanging out inside the greenhouse (which I use as a barn).  I had to use artificial light for this image (and the next one).

Under:  The three kids were all happily napping under the workbench.

I’m also sharing with Barn Collective, SOOC Sunday.

Hazy Shade of Winter

It has been quite foggy and hazy lately.  Our weather is actually quite crazy between the rain and snow and fog and ice.
