Friday’s Hunt v3.24

16 Jun

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 Y, Week’s Favorite, and splash. I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top. I am crazy busy with 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 X:  Believe it or not, I’ve had quite a few goats whose names started with X.  Blogging might have everything to do with that.  It is x-tremely important to note that it is completely x-ceptable to cheat on the letter X.   My goats: Xander, Xavier, Xena, Xerxes, Ximon.  Of course, I’m sharing Xerxes, who is the only one still here.

Week’s Favorite:  When I was trying to find the orioles’ nest, I ran into this fellow.  As unafraid as he was, it makes me wonder if it’s the one who was hanging out in the chicken coop.

Insect:  I know this jumping spider isn’t really an insect, but hopefully, he’s helping to keep them out of my soap room.

This bee is an insect.  I don’t want to get any closer to him.

Before I turn it over to you, I have a quick question as we’re nearing the end of round three.  Does everyone want to continue?  I’m enjoying it and love visiting your posts.  It’s about the only blog visiting I do these days since life has gotten so crazy.  I’m up for it if you are.  Any suggestions for changes/improvements (besides taking X out of the alphabet)?

Now it’s your turn!

Updated to add next week’s items. (Sorry)

Did You Bring Us Peanuts?

Friday’s Hunt v3.1

6 Jan

Welcome back to Friday’s Hunt.  I can’t believe I’ve been doing this for a year now, and we are starting our third round!  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 B, Week’s Favorite, and creature.   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 A:  I’ve decided to do something a little different for this round.  For each letter of the alphabet, I’m going to list all the goats I’ve ever had that have started with that letter.  Yes, I do have goats for every letter, even if they are not currently on the farm.  A:  Abby, Al, Alex, Alvin, Amos, Amy, Andre, Angel, Annie, Art, Atticus, and Ava.  The only current goat on the farm that starts with A is Ava.

Week’s Favorite: Since I have Minnie with Helen and Wanda and Xerxes in the other half of the greenhouse, I’ve been taking peanuts out to give them when Helen gets her peanut butter meds.  Minnie practically demanded it, and it would be rude not to offer some to Wanda and Xerxes.  I’m pleased to say that Xerxes has decided I might not be so bad after all.  He loves the peanuts!  I do have to watch that he doesn’t get my fingers too though.  Maybe there is hope for turning him into a nice goat instead of a fraidy goat.

Beginning:  I showed you some of the art I was creating out of books yesterday.  Well, it might be the beginning of a new obsession.  Good thing I have  a lot of books. I’m hoping to get a variety of these done to put in my soap room for sale.
