Sunday’s Scavenger Hunt

The items for Scavenger Hunt Sunday this week are:  alive, movement, starts with T, friends or family, and photographer’s choice.  Without further ado.

The Canada geese in the Back Forty are planning on starting a family.  It’s the first time I’ve actually had one nest back there.  I’m thinking they might be new at this because on top of the log in the wide open along the fence doesn’t seem like the best place to build a nest if you ask me.

Then again, she has her hubby/gander standing in a tree (starts with T) acting as a decoy.  He was literally up there announcing to all predators that he was there and come get him.  Really.  I’m not sure how this is going to turn out, but we’ll see.

In another tree, we have Snickers.  I hope this works for movement because he was definitely remembering that down is more difficult than up at this point.



Jules has not yet fully recovered from meeting seeing the llama.  In fact, she thinks she’s lucky to be alive.  She’s only ventured back out of the house once, and she was panicked and ready to go back in almost immediately.



Llenny doesn’t really look that mean, does he?  This one is my photographer’s choice.



Hopefully, my son is still planning on helping me move Llenny to a bigger space (and hanging out to make sure he doesn’t go through the fence again) in the morning.

I’m also sharing with Bird d’Pot, Camera Critters, and Saturday’s Critters.


Some Monday Random-ocity.

The Good.

Penny seems to be making more milk.  I’m still offering a bottle twice a day to Patch, but he didn’t take his bottle this morning. I’m heading out with his evening bottle as soon as I finish this post.

The Random.

Right at the end of the year, Snickers had lost a lot of weight and wasn’t eating.  He couldn’t keep down his canned cat food.  I decided to give him poached egg slathered in margarine and goat milk.  I have to say, he’s gained his weight back.  I can’t feel that backbone sticking out, and he’s almost getting chunky!



The Fun.

Kids are always fun, but I’m not sure how comfortable that would be for sleeping.

They were certainly enjoying soaking up the sun.

I’m sharing with The Good. The Random. The Fun. and Song-ography where the song this week is Soak up the Sun by Cheryl Crow.

I Lived

Sometimes, I participate in memes that make me quite philosophical.  Today, the song for Song-ography is “I Lived” by One Republic.  For some reason, this song had me thinking of my animals.  I have so many getting older and with those old age illnesses.  I only hope that I know when the time is right.  I want them to live every second they have, but I don’t want to make them suffer.  That is the hardest part of loving animals.

Hope when you take that jump, you don’t feel the fall



I owned every second that this world could give
