Baby, It’s Cold Outside

18 Jan

We’re still in the deep freeze, and we have another day before we might make it back up to some more historical average temperatures.  The goats are huddled together for warmth.

Some are basking by the barn; although, I don’t know why she’s letting water drip off the barn onto her.  She was covered in icicles all day.

Fionn and his girls are all staying out of the wind in the quonset hut.

I am trying to get them through this cold spell with extra grain and hay and making sure they have plenty of clean water.  Because they are healthy, they are doing well.

The only one I am worried about is Helen because of the CAE/arthritis.  This weather has been very hard on her, so she’s with her girls and getting pain medicine.

I think Snickers has the right idea, staying in the house, basking on the table with the sun shining in on him.

Today’s post is inspired by Jack Frost and the song Baby It’s Cold Outside by Frank Wildhorn, and I’m sharing with Song-ography.  I’m also sharing with Ruby Tuesday Too.

I do hope you’ll come back and join me for Friday’s Hunt.  If you are interested, the items for this week are in my sidebar at the top.

Scavenger Hunt Sunday

16 Jan

This week Ashley gave us the following items for Scavenger Hunt Sunday: monochrome, complimentary, draw, mostly white, and treasure.

The blue jays were out here today enjoying the complimentary dog food.  They need it too with this cold weather (high of 12*F (-11.1*C) today; 0*F (-17.78*C) tomorrow).

I do have a big mostly white bird that has decided she wants to clean up under the bird feeders.

She acts like she’s discovered some treasure.  As long as she doesn’t figure out she could reach up and dump the whole thing, she’s fine.  Do you see that udder?  She is definitely bred for the end of next month.

I do not draw.  But my camera has a drawing setting, so here is Snickers taken on that setting.  Pretty sure I’m not a fan.

SOOC

This was the picture I took just before on a normal setting.  I’m happy to say his antibiotics helped, and he’s doing quite well again.  We’ll cross our fingers and hope it lasts.

Finally, we have monochrome.  I had the hardest time with this one.  I went with Leo in grayscale.

He’s my sweet snuggly boy in this cold weather.

If you are interested in joining me for Friday’s Hunt, you still have time to join in  this week; otherwise, the items for next week at the top of my sidebar.

I’m also sharing with Bird d’Pot, Shadow Shot Sunday, Saturdays’s Critters, Camera Critters, and SOOC Sunday.

Another Scavenger Hunt Sunday

9 Jan

The items for the first Scavenger Hunt Sunday of the year are:  new, red, breakfast, simple, and circle.

Breakfast.  I do not eat my cats for breakfast, but I do fix an egg for Snickers every morning.  He hasn’t been feeling well, though, and he thought the flower water made a better breakfast.

He’s been on antibiotics for a few days, and he’s doing better.

I’m not sure how much he’ll improve though.  My secret thought is that the cancer in his mouth is spreading.  It’s been almost four years since he first had problems with it, and he’s been amazingly healthy and happy throughout this time.

I do hope the antibiotics are all he needs to improve for another four years, but I’m not very optimistic.

Simple:  I found a simple solution to the problem of the bowl of dog food and peanuts blowing off the table.  I set it down out of the wind.  The birds seem to be happy, but it’s not very good for pictures.  I guess with our frigid temperatures, feeding the birds is more important than me getting to take pictures.

Red.  Since I’m on the subject of birds, here’s a couple with red on them.

New.  We’re still working on the new soap room.  It’s slow.  I want it done.

Circle.  Progress is still being made though.

I really can’t wait for it to be done.

It’s not too late to join me on Friday’s Hunt.  You can check it out and enter here.
