Friday Leftovers

19 Aug

Now that I’m back to work, you might end up with more leftover posts–not because there’s nothing going on, but because I just don’t have the time.

It’s canning season. Salsa and one jar of cold-pack tomatoes.

I can’t believe how well Herbie is getting along with the other cats. I think he’s pretty happy with his new life.

Tiger and Herbie–the big and the little

Salem and Herbie are besties

Even Rocky seems to be accepting him; although Herbie looks a bit uncertain.

Hopefully, I did a good job of checking and fixing fence before we let the goats back there.

I saw another (or the same) fawn out in pasture when I was checking to make sure the goats were still where they belonged.

I see all these people posting gorgeous photos of majestic eagles perched high in the tops of trees.  Me I have a turkey vulture squatting on a round bale.


Hope you’re okay with the leftovers.

Monday Leftovers

16 May

I’ve been playing with the camera, and I have a lot of pictures I haven’t shared because it’s also been really busy.  So today is all leftovers!



My crab apple is blooming.

The bobolinks are back!

This bobolink must be new because he’s awfully shy.

Tiger turned 1-year-old on May 5th.


A beautiful sunset from last week.

Have a great new week.

Checking on Maxine

8 May

I usually take a walk in the pasture each evening which gives me an opportunity to check my Maxine.  For some reason, when I took my walk yesterday, there were vultures hanging around, three of them.  I was surprised to see I’d gotten not only the vulture and the moon, but also a jet flying by.

It looks like Maxine is starting to make an udder.  She is due to have her calf in just about a month.

This should be another black one.  It will be a full brother or sister to Norma Jean.

I can’t wait to meet our newest bovine addition to the family!

I had this post ready to go today before I got up and found MJ had gone down in the night.  It seems somehow appropriate that my post today was to be about a new calf.  The circle of life and all, you know.
