An Adorable Surprise

26 Apr

Can you tell what this is?


How about now?


Lucy finally hatched (at least) a gosling.



I’m very happy for her.



If you don’t think these are wild birds, here’s what was hissing at me the whole time I was trying to take a picture of the baby.


They are very protective parents.  But if those are not wild enough birds for you, here is a trio of barn swallows.


The bluebird couple was still out in pasture.


I hope they will have a nest out there!

If you want to join me for Friday’s Hunt, I’d love to have you participate.  The items for this week are at the top of my sidebar.

Friday’s Hunt v1.13

25 Mar

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.  I’m excited for week thirteen!  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 N, Week’s Favorite, and vintage.  I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top. Without further ado, here’s my interpretations for the week.

Starts with M:  Luckily, my many trips in and out of the barn and sleep deprivation allowed me to see the big M on my barn door.   I know, I know.  It looks like two As with an L in between, but it looked a lot more like an M when I was using a flashlight and I was sleep deprived.

I also have my Mary.  I used to call her Mary, Mary, quite contrary, but I think she was taking that a bit too much to heart.  Now I call her Mary, Mary, Miss Extraordinary!

And now she has a mini-Mary.

Week’s Favorite:  Dolly had her kid.  Adorable little thing!  The only way I could like him any more is if he were a she.  Dang!  I’ve already put my request in for a girl next year, but I’m not sure it will do any good.  Out of the sixteen kids she has had, she has only had three girls.

Bird or Wings:  I was going to play and have fun with this one, but the weather and kidding just didn’t let me get it done.  Instead, you get these two.  They both hope to have new babies running around by mid-April.

Finally Making Progress

24 Jun

Finally!  The contractor came and we discussed the plans for my garage.  I have someone set to tear it down.  I’m finally making progress!  Except, we’re waiting on a woman.



Everything is still on hold until Lucy is off the nest.  It seems like she’s been sitting there forever.  Come on babies!  Hatch!

Sharing with Song-ography for the Brad Paisley’s Waitin’ on a Woman and Alphabe-Thursday where the letter this week is F.  F is for finally making progress or forever because that’s what it seems to be taking.
