Outside My Window

25 Oct

It’s getting to be that time of year when I enjoy watching the wildlife outside my window.

I dearly wish Sky wouldn’t try to kill everything I’d like to feed there.

I don’t think that is something he’ll ever outgrow though.

I need to find someplace outside my fence that I can feed them.

Even if they’ll be too far away to photograph because, as you can see, the pictures are none too good through my dirty window anyhow.

Friday’s Hunt v3.20

19 May

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 U, Week’s Favorite, and kids.   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 T: All my goats that have started with T:  T-bone, Tango, Tansy, Tayet, Theodore, Thumper, Tina, Tiny Tim, Tish, Tom, Tommy, Tucker, Tuesday.  I only have one T-goat on the farm right now–Victoria’s boy, T-bone.

Week’s Favorite:  I’ve really enjoyed the birds since I got my summer feeders out last weekend.  I’ve missed the feeders being out with yard goats for the last two years.

Food:  I am feeding a variety of foods, but the sunflower seeds seem to be their favorite!

Now it’s your turn!

A Bird in the Snow

I was accompanied on my walk through the pasture this weekend by a red-bellied woodpecker who seemed to be following me.

I finally obliged it with a photo shoot when we got back to the barnyard.

I’m sharing today with Wild Bird Wednesday and Ruby Tuesday Too.

I do hope you’ll consider coming back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items at the top of my side bar.
