Friday’s Hunt v2.19

4 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 T, Week’s Favorite, and rule of thirds.  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 S:  I think I’m pretty sure that I’ve decided Ava and Strawberry will be staying here on the farm.  After all, they did work really hard at the pumpkin patch petting zoo. I think that work needs to be rewarded with a forever farm.





Week’s Favorite:  My harvest being completed is certainly my favorite of the week.  It’s definitely a relief to have to crops in.


Amazing:  We’ve had amazing, warm weather lately.  I mean that in a record-breaking global warming kind of amazing.  The goats are enjoying all the lush pasture, but I’m a bit worried about them getting a good winter coat before it turns cold.

Mother Nature is Teasing Us

We are really dry where I’m at.  Other places are flooding, and even my sister about an hour-and-a-half from me has had quite a bit of rain.  We’re a dust bowl.  My poor pumpkins need rain to sprout.

We have had clouds and thunder teasing us.  It comes right to the edge of my farm.



Then it just goes away.  It might be beautiful, but I’d sure like to have some rain for my crops.

To make it worse, we’re hot.  It was 92*F (33.3*C) and hotter tomorrow with high humidity.



Please Mother Nature.  Llenny hasn’t been sheared, and I have girls to kid yet and the babies don’t like this heat.

If you’d like to join me for Friday’s Hunt tomorrow, I have the items listed at the top of my sidebar.

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.
