And the countdown begins

Sweet Candy

I have been anxiously watching my doe, Sweet Candy, for the past month.  She started bagging up earlier than expected and is as wide as she is tall right now.  Sweet Candy is due to kid July 5, give or take a few days.  I find her slowly waddling through the yard grazing on delicious weeds and wildflowers along the way or hanging in her new favorite spot a big rubber feed tub.  Sweet Candy has looked like she'd go into labor any minute and thankfully she's kept those babies in this long.  More to come!

Nothing gets you out of bed faster than...


discovering a nasty doggie dingleberry!  That cute little pup shares the bed with me every night.  Cookie was snuggled in the blankets.  I went to pet her and discovered a strange goo ball on her rear.  Being a mom, I gave it the whiff test.  Yup, sure enough it was poo!  Not just a little poo either, I leapt out of bed and ushered poor Cookie out of the house as quickly as possible.  Guess today will be wash the bedding day!!  Yuck!!

Hiking the Falls

Yesterday was one of those spectacular sunny summer days that reminds me why I love living in Colorado.  Two of my kiddos and I went for a glorious hike.  The sky was a crystal clear azure, a gentle breeze rustled the pines, and the falls we hiked next to gave plenty of opportunities for us to dip our toes to cool off.  I was so proud of my girls for making this trek with me, for navigating the rocky often steep trail.  It was a blessing to have them out in nature enjoying the world around them.

Time to Move Outside!

Yes, that is a goat and yes, said goat is on my counter.  Rosie, a.k.a.the Mexican jumping bean has figured out that she can jump from the floor to the counter.  My home is no longer safe between Boo and Rosie.  I'm thinking Rosie needs to become a goat on a permanent basis.

Where's the Kitty?

Sweet, little Boo is on top of the kitchen cabinets.  She jumps from the floor to the counter and then from the counter to the cabinet.  It's quite a feat considering she's jumping straight up!

Miracle Baby

I am sitting on the couch cuddling my bottle baby goat.  Sweet little Rose Petals is a miracle baby.  She is six weeks old today, and we didn't think she'd make it through her first week.  Rosie was born fighting, she required mouth to mouth to help her breathe.  Mama rejected her, and Rosie was having trouble taking a bottle.   Poor little one came to us as a last resort.  I am thrilled to say Rosie is healthy and growing like a weed.  She takes a bottle with ease and spends her days with my does.   Little Rosie Posey is truly a blessing!

Goofy Kitty

I should do a whole series on the strange place I find my cats.  Here is Boo disguising herself as a package of ramen.  I'm not too sure who she's trying to fool?
