Warm

9 Mar

Our weather is warm.  I got to unplug my heated water tubs.  They are still there (see the cord through the PVC pipe) in case we get cold again, but it warms my heart not to have them plugged in.

The goats have been spending more time out in pasture.  I think it’s even starting to turn green.  That warms my heart.

I love seeing my herd queen out there doing her job!  She might be old, but she still commands the respect of the herd.

That warms my heart too.

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

Today, I’m sharing with Warm Heart Wednesday.

The Down Time

16 Feb

I thought winter was supposed to be a farmer’s down time.  The season when they get to take it easy.

Not!  If you have livestock, it takes a lot more work to take care of them in winter weather.  There’s always maintenance and preparing for the coming year.

I would love to find some down time, but the only down here is on the birds.  Our crazy weather doesn’t help either.

These pictures were taken on Sunday, and most of our snow has melted now.  In the next day or two, we’ll be back to mud.

I do hope you’ll consider coming back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have the items for this week listed at the top of my sidebar.

Roller Coaster Weather

4 Feb

We’re still on our roller coaster weather pattern.  We had beautiful weather last weekend when Pistol had her kids.  Luckily she had them before Tuesday’s winter storm that caused a snow day from work.

It was beautiful.

In the midst of our Groundhog Day snow day, I saw a robin!  What the heck!

It was so warm that most of our snow melted resulting in icicles hanging from the roof.

Yesterday, we had sunshine, but it was colder.

The snow on the top froze and made ice, but it was still warm underneath.

At least I didn’t sink up to my knees in mud.  The goats got to eat outside on a clean bed of snow.

Now were supposed to warm up to the forties again this weekend, so we’ll be back to muddy, and then we get another blast of cold by next Tuesday.

I hope you’ll come back tomorrow to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  If you want to, the items for tomorrow are in the top of my sidebar.

I’m sharing today at Good Fences and Skywatch Friday.
