A Better Day

20 Dec

Well, after Sunday’s stress, today has been better.  The electrician came this morning and “put a band-aid” on the issue.  I have to call them back in the spring to do more work so that there isn’t some “catastrophic” failure.  I have a new washing machine coming to be delivered on Monday, so I have to do way more cleaning than I care to admit before then.

My nephew came and capped off the pipe that froze and broke.  That’s good.  It’s not one that I use often, but it has always had a habit of freezing up because it’s on the east side of the well house.

The chicken I took to the milk room to try to warm up and revive is lively and I took her back to the chicken coop today.  When I checked her tonight, she was roosting up with everyone else.

Our temperatures are back to being pretty nice.  In fact, we’ve gone completely past normal to above average.  I do wish we would not have the wild swinging temperatures.  That’s what makes birds and goats sick.  By the way, my pictures don’t match because I have no time to take pictures when the days are this short.

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

Chatterbox

3 Dec

While I was in the barnyard doing more preparations for winter, I heard a couple of chatterboxes.  They were not happy.

I can’t blame them.  As much as I try to convince Snickers that we don’t eat our friends, I haven’t been able to convince him that squirrels are our friends.  Don’t worry. I put the cat in the house and the squirrels made their escape.

I’m sharing with Saturday’s Critters and Camera Critters.

Friday’s Hunt v2.21

18 Nov

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 V, Week’s Favorite, and thankful.  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 U: Up.  Look up in the trees and you might get to see some friends.  I always enjoy watching the squirrels.

Week’s Favorite: I think my week’s favorite is Maybeline.  She is actually pretty sweet.  She’s the only one of the three llamas that will come up and let me llove on her.

Nature: I love to surround myself with nature.  Today, I’m sharing Meg.  She is one of my two old ladies.
