Clem - Get off the Sheep

You would think this cat has been working as hard as I but you would be WRONG ! Ever since Mishka has been living with the other goats - Clem has decided to adopt the Icelandic Sheep Hides in the house as his own. I have several prized hides I brought back from Iceland when we first started the farm and I admit it, I love to sit with my face in them or just pet them while reading. Strange to some but that is just me..... Well, Clem now thinks he can put his cat butt on them and it will be O.K. with me - WRONG !!! He waits till I leave the house to do chores and on the hides he goes, the nerve of some folks......

I know he would never admit it but I think he misses Mishka. I guess any furry body will do for Clem.

Babies are all over the place

I know it is a little bit hard to see but with these wonderful does are four sweet little babies. The mothers kept walking and eating right outside my front door and the babies where laying in the tall grass. I could not seem to get a picture that would turn out of the babies and I did not wish to get to close for the little ones where sleeping and we all need a good nap.

On the front deck was three little ground chipmucks chasing each other but they move so fast my camera just could not keep up. Their running, rolling and chattering sounded like a herd of elephants where on the deck but just these three kids having fun.

When I go outside all my problems just melt away - I remember to live today and stop living in the "WHAT IF" and live in the "NOW".....

Springtime in Colorado

As the saying goes "Don't like the weather in Colorado just wait ten mintues"
Yesturday was 78 degrees and today I already have three inches of snow and it is barely 34 degrees. I LOVE it - we so need the moisture......

There is a down side - that cute little energy creature (Mishka)is stuck in the house and running me ragged. Unlike my two legged kids when they were little - I would bundle them up and out the door they went to play. Even now there favorite time is SNOW, SNOW and more SNOW..... I put Mishka out with the goats this morning when I fed everyone and before I could get in the house there she was standing in the driveway - wet, shrivering and screaming. Yes, in the house she came, blow dried her off and after a warm bottle, naptime. Wished I had a snow suit for her. Just another fun day at the Funny Farm. Stay warm and check in later.
