Around here...

Photobucket

We've been sleeping... 

Photobucket

We got our reserve wood pile refilled. This is our emergency, oh we've both got the horrible flu and there is 10 feet of snow and we can't get to the woodsplitter pile... 

Photobucket

Kevin cut down some standing dead ash trees... 

Photobucket

Both were on a hillside so it was a little touchy. But they both came down without too much of a fight... just a little. 

Photobucket

We winched them down the hillside so Kevin could hook them up and drag them home together. 

Photobucket

We cut up one Cherry tree that has been down for a while... there was only a little bit that was good to save for a woodworking project... the rest we'll use to burn for a pretty fire since it burns in different colors. 

Photobucket

Flavious: I can see you. I can see that you are eating chips over there...

Photobucket

Me: oh I'm sorry, I forgot to share... would you like a chip?

Photobucket

I went along my fence lines to check my electric top fence wire. It's been off and I wanted to turn it back on to keep Barnaby where I want him, so I had to check for debris or anywhere it might be touching ground. The goats came with me, just in case I needed their assistance. 


Photobucket

Sammy got distracted by some tasty leaves... 


Photobucket

Me: here, eat this one, it's a good one...
Sammy: thanks mom don't mind if I do... 

Photobucket

On their way by they stopped to check the hickory tree that fell over... 

Photobucket

And then everyone went around it the exact same way... 

Photobucket

Once the fence was fixed and working, Sammy and I sat down together for a snuggle in the sun...

Photobucket

Sammy: yes, right there, scratch right there... 

Photobucket

Oh to be as happy and content with life as Sammy is. 

Photobucket

Sammy: Now I'd like a kiss... 

Photobucket

and a chin scratch... 

Photobucket

hey, why did you stop! Stop taking pictures and rub my tummy. 

Photobucket

We've had just a teeny dusting of snow, just enough to look like powdered sugar sprinkled on top of a cake... 

Photobucket

The wildlife have been enjoying the wonderful November weather we've had... living has been pretty easy for them... 

Photobucket

This is one of the two fawns we have... both of them are very, very, curious... 

Photobucket

Hello gobbler... 

Photobucket

The animals have been lounging, and filling their faces... sometimes at the same time. 

Photobucket

The men took apart our old shelter, our original sheep shelter before we had the barn or any other animals... 

Photobucket

So they could rebuild it and give Izzie the cow a nice winter shelter. 

Photobucket

Biscuit: I'm leading this parade... there will be treats right? My followers will riot if I don't lead them to treats and there will be an uprising, I'll loose my pretend position of power... you get my drift...


Photobucket

My fighting Bucks shared a moment... drinking water together at the same time. 
Buckwheat: Ma, stop taking pictures! I don't want this documented! Or shared with other people! 

Photobucket

Rose reached all new heights... 

Photobucket

She was really unsure about the construction in the barnyard... she was both intrigued and worried. 

Photobucket

Dahlia: Don't worry about it Rose... they are just building a cow house... and I love you, so nothing else matters.

Photobucket

We are not getting another cow are we? One is good enough. 


Photobucket

Basswood: Can we come in now? We want to come in and see!

Photobucket

Lou and Max were not worried at all about the moo house construction. They just relaxed in the sun. 

Photobucket

Norman also relaxed in the sun at the house. 

Photobucket

I noticed when I walked by the window in the house there was a deer lying in the front yard... 

Photobucket

Chewing her cud... apparently she wasn't too worried about anything either. 

Photobucket

And the moon... the moon has been beautiful. Last night it took my breath away when I came out of my barn to see that big round beautiful moon shining down on my cool peaceful November barnyard. 

Life has been good. Productive, and peaceful. For now...

The life of a three toed cow...

Photobucket

Is a very complicated one... 

Photobucket

So many days spent relaxing in the sun chewing a good cud... 

Photobucket

Wait, did you hear that?

Photobucket

Oh never mind, it's nothing... 

Photobucket

Like I was saying, so many days relaxing in the sun, thinking about what delicious thing you'll eat next... who you can boss around...

Photobucket

If only I had a bell... a bell I could ring for service... a bell that would make my servants come running... hmmm... 

Photobucket

Flavious: I'm here Izzie, I heard your call... 

Photobucket

Flavious: Your wish is my command... you want a cookie?

Photobucket

Izzie: Mmmm... no. No cookie.

Photobucket

Flavious: Do you want a kiss? 

Photobucket

Izzie: Ah, to be Queen. It's rough, with the little people always wanting to give you kisses and shower you with affection... 

Flavious: She loves me, I know it!

Um, excuse me?


Raccoon :Yes?

Me: "what are you doing on my porch in the dark, with my bird seed bin dumped upside down?" 

Raccoon: "nothing."
Me: Oh ya, it looks like nothing.

Raccoon "look lady, just turn the light off and go back to bed. There is nothing to see here."
