Scenes from the Week ............................

We loss another guinea this week , not sure what happen to this one. I found it laying between a barrel and a piece of hubby's equipment. It didn't look like it had been attacked , so I think it might have flown into the metal and broke it's neck. We have 6 guineas left , they're thinning out quickly. Dh and I have been busy this week , we got the fencing up for the goats. We're using chain link and hubby had to make the panels , it was a pain , but it was free and made a great goat pen. We'll be adding more panels as we find them at bargain prices.

You gotta love this pic , Jazz was standing at the door of the new goat shed , looking at me and apparently thinking I'm not sure about this place , it took her awhile before she decided to come in (LOL).



Jo ran in and started exploring right away ...........



she found the hay and began eating. I have an old pull around grocery cart that I'm reusing as a hay rack , it works fine and I'm happy to find another use for it .


Jazz and Jo enjoying their sweet feed in the new goat shed.

Thought they wanted to ride , but when I started pulling the wagon , they jumped out (LOL).

The chickens are happy campers , I cleaned their coop yesterday. They're using two of the nesting boxes now.
Ms. Dandelion lays the blue/green eggs .




This is Iris , she lays white eggs ..............




look at the egg she laid yesterday. It's huge , almost 3 inches long , it maybe a double yolker.

We've got a new guest at the chicken coop. I have this old pot hanging outside the coop , I use it to dip water from a barrel to water plants with. But some little birdie decided it would make a great home , guess I'll have to find another dipper.


These brown bananas ..................................



made wonderful banana bread , it tasted delightful after all that work this week.


So , what was on your agenda this week ?

I had a busy week - eye surgeon appt in Seattle for Don (great progress being made), small quiling group at an alpaca farm on Thursday, grandson Ben on Friday and we baked cookies - and today I'm going to refinish two end tables for the living room. Great weather all week - yipppeeee.

Hi JoAnn ~ Glad to hear it's going well with Don. The quilting group at an alpaca farm sounds like fun and homemade cookies are always a treat. I plan to bake some next week.
