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

Another Scavenger Hunt Sunday

This week Ashley gave us the task of finding the following:  Pink, Old School, Walk, Accessory, and On My Table.

Pink:  Bambi’s nose is about as pink as they come.  She is adorable, and she’s a brat.  I love her though, and she’s due to have kids again on April 1.



Old School:  I feed my goats old school.  I have small bales that I take pad by pad to feed them.  For some reason, the first thing Millie (or many of them) does is dump the tub and eat from the ground.  I’ve honestly given up on most of the tubs.  Can you tell Bambi gets her pink nose from her maa, Millie?



Walk:  If you remember, I shoveled paths for the animals and me.  They were so nice, but now they are mud.  Really, really, muddy. And there’s ice underneath.  That makes them a bit treacherous.

Barnyard Trails

Gidget and geese

I wanted to take advantage of our beautiful day by going for a walk in the pasture, but it was a bit snowy and sloppy.


I don’t know why it would be slushy with thirteen inches of snow melting quickly and running off the barn roof.

I didn’t make it very far.  I had to admire the beauty from a distance.


Shadow Shot

Accessory:  Mother Nature must have decided we needed a splash of color in the winter landscape.  I’m glad to have this cardinal accessory.


Bird d’Pot 

On My Table:  At any given time on my kitchen table you’re likely to find a basking or bathing cat lying among the plants.



They are pretty sure the table belongs to them.  And I can see that I should wash the muddy paw prints off the window again while the weather is nice.

Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today…


You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one
–John Lennon



My darling Snickers has been doing quite well.  He was diagnosed with cancer nearly three years ago, and he’s done amazingly well, but I’m afraid he’s beginning to show signs of the illness.



He’s lost nearly a quarter of his body weight, and he’s beginning to have a hard time keeping food down.  I made him a poached egg this evening, and that seems to have settled well for him.  I plan on spoiling him as long as I can.

Sharing with Song-ography where the song is Imagine by John Lennon.  I’m also sharing with The Good. The Random. The Fun.
