Fair 2016, Friday-Day 1

Well it has begun. I say Day 1, but it is really more of a set up day. Just the Chickens and Sheep went tonight.

Junior settled right in and seemed happy to finally be around other sheep. He started eating and had a drink. Then he took a couple jumps.

We took 3 chickens this year. Polly, the German spitzhauben, the white cochin, and our light brahma. They are all settled in as well. We then went to the rabbit barn and goat barn to see where we are going to be unloading tomorrow. Then I went and got most of our groceries for the week of camping.

Of course, we snuck to the food stand for a quick bite to eat. Then off to home to shower and get ready for the real start to the fair!  A lot of work to do tomorrow, so good night!

 

Friday’s Hunt v2.4

It’s that time again. Friday’s Hunt with my dear friend Teresa at Eden Hills. This week our prompts are the Letter D, Week’s Favorite, and Summer or Winter. It’s been a hectic week with getting ready for fair and heat advisories and storms and good grief! So here we go…

Diana starts with D. Diana is the daughter of one of my two original goats, Martha. Martha was a pain but man do I miss her. After she passed unexpectedly a couple years ago, I was worried that is something happened to Diana I wouldn’t have Martha’s bloodline anymore. I am sure praying that Diana is breed so I can hopefully keep a doeling out of her. I love mother daughter pairs and watching them interact. Even after they have been weaned and separated for months, they find each other immediately.

My Week’s Favorite are the two pictures I took of the weed Queen Anne’s Lace. I don’t like it towards the end of summer when it turns into little tiny annoying sticker burrs that get everywhere and are nearly impossible to get out of clothing. But right now? It’s awful pretty.

We are in the middle of a Summer heat wave. It is unbearable to some. I don’t mind it, other than I don’t like wet jeans. I especially don’t like wet, sweaty jeans. But how can you complain when you are ‘forced’ to work in such beauty, day after day, with people you love? Yes, my blessing are all around me!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
