That would be Winnie.
Yesterday, when Paiton was here... I heard her say "Grandma, there's a goat on your car".
She said it very matter-of-factly. I laughed and thought she was kidding.
Through the kitchen window.
I stepped out the door to ummmm call her to get down.... and down she came. And of course, everyone stampeded towards the door to see if there were any Ritz crackers available.
I am NOT encouraging this.
Good gravy Gert.
Chubby....errr Abby, has been helping me do chores the last few days. I need to say here that I take the dogs out BEFORE I let the goats out, as we do not need Delilah going after any of them, including Lil.
I also kept her away from Paiton.
I encourage Abby to get out with me so she gets some exercise, which she sorely needs.
She loves to drink the ice cold well water out of the duck pond.
Reddy is one of my pets, and will always live here. She is about 4, and used to live in the feed room with Butch in the old henhouse. She is no longer laying, but a favorite of mine.
Here is Lil, very still, on point, after the storm this morning.
And there she goes, digging up the mole she was pointing!
I need to stop here and talk about Lil and the dead chicken from two days ago.
Over the course of her seven years, Lil has made it clear that she doesn't tolerate chickens in her yard.
I am not emotionally attached to MOST of the chickens (though I have my favorites and I take very good care of all of them) and Keith and I always considered that any chicken that flew over the fence was fair game.
We aren't selling eggs, or eating our chickens, so if we do lose one once in a while, well... it's second nature for Lil. She is too fine a companion and The Protector of Us All, to censure her very much.
I did take her chicken away from her the other day... and dispose of it where she couldn't smell it.
I unhitched the cart and put the tractor away this afternoon, because we are expecting slush, rain, and snow tonight and tomorrow. YAYYYYY. Not.
This old single car garage sits east of our "shop", the cement floored barn.
It's on the list to clean up in the spring, with Chris's help.
I put the window shade back up on our door this afternoon, and had to stand on the chair to do it.
Look what I found above the curtain.
Really made me feel good.
I am going to do a story about the way I think I am going to garden next year... and am trying to get it sorted out in my head to write about it.
I hope to have it ready in a day or two.
Do you realize that a year ago tomorrow was Thanksgiving, so we are running late this year.
Do you have your Christmas shopping started?
