Friday’s Hunt v4.24

15 Dec

Welcome back to Friday’s Hunt. I want to thank everyone who joined in last week. 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.

We are working on round four! It’s hard to believe. I did make a slight change. It will still go through the alphabet for the first prompt, but there are two other prompts that will change each week. As always, you can choose to do one or all. If you enjoy the week’s favorite, by all means continue to add that. If you didn’t participate this week but would like to next week the topics will be: Starts with Y, tree, and shadows. I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top. I am crazy busy with work off the farm and everything on the farm right now, but I will try to make sure to visit all participants. I have to say, the change to my teaching assignment this year is really killing me. Without further ado, here’s my interpretations for the week.

Starts with X:  Of course, I’m using Xerxes for this.  Who knew when I named him that I’d use him for the letter X every time?  I actually didn’t plan on keeping him, but I’m glad I did.  He’s awfully cute.

Craft:  I need to go practice my craft of soap making.  I have several soaps that I’m out of and several that I’m almost out of, but I have the hardest time finding time to get anything done the way my off-farm job has been this fall.

Growing:  My June babies are growing like crazy.

Caroline, my sweetie, is almost as big as her maa anymore.

The boys like their hay.

They are certainly getting plenty to eat.

Got Peanuts?

6 Nov

Since Xerxes spent the winter with Helen and her girls two winters ago, he’s been a sucker for peanuts.  I really need to keep feeding them to him because, as you can see, he’s gotten much more friendly.

Who knows.  Maybe some day he’ll actually be nice.
