Remember those two golden girls I talked about this week? Well, here are the old golden girls, 7 years old and still looking pretty spiffy.
As I was walking around outside looking for interesting photos, this is where I found Emma. She is laying among tools, etc. when there is all kinds of empty space that would be more comfortable.
Here is the goat herd that lives on the west side of the barn – the really active group. If I put the fainters in with these guys, the fainters would be on the ground all the time. When the fainting goat is startled, they get stiff and fall over. I should look up the scientific explanation for you some time. I will.
Here they are in the barn yesterday at chore time – they chase and butt each other all the time. There’s a real pecking order on the west side.
And right outside the door is one big goose egg nest that two goose mamas claim.
This WAS a beautiful pot of autumn joy sedum until I looked at it this morning and evidently the 3 amigos had breakfast on it. I will have to decide. Maybe group all the pots together and fence the pots in and the goats out?
Here is Gloria’s tablemat.
We were quoted in the current issue of Quilters Newsletter Magazine. A friend sent this to me.
More pictures from Connie’s garden. Her black dirt is coming the first of next week so I’ll send pictures then. Today she’s planting the vegetable garden at Roy’s office.
One last goat picture of Betsy taken from behind — now that’s a wide load!
Remember those 2 little golden girls with the pasty butts? Look at those 2 beauties today! Notice the feathers on their feet.
I’m not good at selfies but here’s my “free” chick who I just knew would turn out to be a rooster. How do I know he’s a rooster? Because he’s learning to crow and it’s the silliest little squawk you’ve ever heard. He’ll get the hang of it as he grows but right now he’s a pretty sorry sounding teenage rooster!
I gave the girls a small piece of alfalfa hay and they loved it – several crowded in and started scratching like all grown up chickens do. They evidently just know these things.
While I do the chores and take pictures, this is what Telly and Faye do – hunt for mice in the feed room.
And this is why the 3 amigos and Emma will probably not get the run of the house yard this summer. They like to eat shrubbery, flowers, succulents, decorative grasses and most anything else I try very hard to grow!
Roxie is settling in.
Readers are finishing their snowball tablemats and I’m including Launa’s as well as Diane’s rug – she’s the one who issued the challenge to me to finish by the 13th and she was only a day behind. Several readers admitted never machine quilting before but I say – on the table is better than perfect! And the next one you make will be easier and better. In fact why don’t you start thinking NOW about making a fall version and after that a Christmas version?
And last but not least, here is Ethel just barely peeking out from under the bed.
