Friday’s Hunt v4.24

15 Dec

Welcome back to Friday’s Hunt. I want to thank everyone who joined in last week. 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.

We are working on round four! It’s hard to believe. I did make a slight change. It will still go through the alphabet for the first prompt, but there are two other prompts that will change each week. As always, you can choose to do one or all. If you enjoy the week’s favorite, by all means continue to add that. If you didn’t participate this week but would like to next week the topics will be: Starts with Y, tree, and shadows. I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top. I am crazy busy with work off the farm and everything on the farm right now, but I will try to make sure to visit all participants. I have to say, the change to my teaching assignment this year is really killing me. Without further ado, here’s my interpretations for the week.

Starts with X:  Of course, I’m using Xerxes for this.  Who knew when I named him that I’d use him for the letter X every time?  I actually didn’t plan on keeping him, but I’m glad I did.  He’s awfully cute.

Craft:  I need to go practice my craft of soap making.  I have several soaps that I’m out of and several that I’m almost out of, but I have the hardest time finding time to get anything done the way my off-farm job has been this fall.

Growing:  My June babies are growing like crazy.

Lots of Milk

21 Aug

I am drowning in milk right now.  My freezers are full of gallons for bottle kids and cubes for making soap.

Now that I’ve sold Clover’s kids and get to use her milk too, I’m getting just about a gallon a day.

I have been making yogurt and chevre.

For the first time, I’m making feta cheese.  We’ll see how that turns out.

I guess it’s a good problem to have too much milk, but going back to work today means I don’t have near enough time to use my milk.

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

Friday’s Hunt v3. 23

9 Jun

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 X, Week’s Favorite, and insect. 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 W:  I’ve had a few W goats on the farm:  Wanda, Wanda, Watson, Wendall, Whitey, Will, Willie, Willie, Wilson, and Winnie.  The only one currently on the farm is Wanda (who was named after her sister Wanda).  Here she is with her daughter Ava.

Week’s Favorite:  My week’s favorite is a no brainer this week.  Tequilla and Margarita finally figured out how to nurse their mom!  Yay!  No more milking and bottle feeding.

Pastel: I was really surprised that I do not have many pastel things around the farm.  I finally settled on my cherry blossom goat’s milk soap.  It’s also one of my favorite fragrances.

Now it’s your turn!

Edited:  Sorry I forgot the linky.  Oops.. I blame kidding.
