Friday’s Hunt March 19

I’ve been all about Spring this past week.
I refuse to let the weather (that has been very un-Spring-like) get me down.
Spring.
Spring.
Spring.
1 more day to Spring!!

For today, though, I’ve got my offering for the Friday’s Hunt hosted by Teresa at Eden Hills.
Prompts this week are Starts with K, Week’s Favorite and Drink.

Starts with K

Kitty!

Daisy Mae

She was only supposed to be a temporary indoor kitty, but the little pooh-stick turned into a permanent indoor resident.
It’s okay though…this girlie has personality to spare, and loves to talk up a storm. Here I caught her in the midst of talking to the trees and grass blowing about in the wind.

Week’s Favorite

My Old Man Odhinn…

Pretty Kitty ❤

14 years old, with a myriad of health issues, but still my main snuggle Kitty at night. Such a handsome boy! ❤

Drink

Heh. Lifeblood of the Universe…

Mmmmm, coffee!

Can’t start the day with out a good, steaming hot cup of coffee. 🙂

1 day, folks…
1 more day to Spring.

3 Days…

Even though the weather is not cooperating today, it’s only 3 days until Spring. Last night we were rained on, today we have high winds and a possibility of snow (not much though) but, I’m not letting that dampen my enthusiasm for Spring.
The horses, while mildly grumpy about being rained on, were in good spirits this morning, as were the cats and chickens.
Sunday, we have a called for high of +12*c.
Yeah, I’m going to dwell on that. 🙂

So, today I give you Sable and the lei in our countdown to Spring…

Sunrise Sleepers

I did manage a few shots of the horses enjoying the sunshine without wind yesterday morning. It wasn’t quite all cats…just mostly cats. 😉

Napping with a full mouth…her way of soaking her hay? 😉

I’m sorry I lost her ears here, but I do love this shot.
Little Red is so pretty. ❤

Ruby is checked right out…

She woke enough to let me know that she knew I was there, but the sunshine was too strong and pulled her eyes closed again. ❤

4 days…
🙂

Friday’s Hunt March 12

Well now, I’m rather proud of myself.
I’ve made it all the way to “J”…and then I thought I was going to fail this week, because really, J? What the heck was I going to do as a photo prompt for J?

As it turns out, I have the perfect image for J…
And, it’s because this little numpkin is such a Jerk!

Fancy Nancy in chair jail.

He’s pretty, he’s adorable, and he knows it.
He also likes to sing in my face at night while I’m trying to sleep. If I don’t wake up enough to acknowledge him, he tries to eat my hair…or he sticks his butt in my face.
I love the little ass, but he is such a jerk.
LOL!

Week’s Favorite this week comes from a quick shoot with the Girls yesterday…

Astrid herself isn’t as crisp and clear as I’d like her to be (I had a condensation spot on the filter) but I couldn’t resist this pose. ❤
She looks so lovely!

My final image is for wings…because I didn’t have a new bird picture, but this guy was hanging around the pasture yesterday…mighta been looking for an equine meal. We all know how they love a good horsie snack. 😉

Stay away from my ponies you two-headed devil, you!! 😡

Sharing for Friday’s Hunt hosted by Teresa at Eden Hills.

Winter…Are You Done Now?

It seems like we’ve had more blizzards this year than normal.
I don’t know if we have or not, and well, I’m honestly too lazy to go searching for the information to know for sure. 😉
I *do* know we’ve just come out the other side of one more…one that started with temps above 0*C paired with a massive downpour of rain, and in a few short hours turned to howling winds, snow and sub-zero temps.
We’re very happy for sunshine today.
It’s cold, but clear. The wind is strong, but nowhere near what it was just 24 hours ago…which was nothing compared to 12 hours before that! We hit gusts in the 90km/h range…that is nuts!

This morning dawned cold and clear, and as the sun rose, we were met with whinnies of greeting from the Girls.
They are happy to see the sun too…

I braved the cold with the camera to get a couple of shots, and then the battery died. Later, I’ll go out and take some more pictures, but for now, I have sunrise shots of the Girls to share…

Astrid

Sable having a shake…shaking is like shivering and you get oats for shivering, so…oats??

11 days…
11 days to Spring, y’all.
We can do this. 🙂

Friday’s Hunt March 5th

Busy, busy week.
Had a Palomino with an upset tummy, me with a raging cold that put me down for a few days, and lots of work to get done.
Ah, well, no rest for the wicked, right? 😉

Aside from today…today was another hay run. Hopefully just one more. Spring is in the air, folks. I can smell it!
And then, I indulged in a bit of day drinking…because sometimes you have to. Or, at least, I do.
LOL

This week’s prompts for Friday’s Hunt hosted by Teresa at Eden Hills are Starts with I, Week’s Favorite and Nose.
Shall we?

Starts with I

These are my idiots…
There are many like them, but these ones are mine…
(bonus points awarded to anyone who knows what I am referencing with that 😉 )

Taken through the kitchen window, while they were goofing off...on the drift, of course.

I love taking picture of Showby (that Haffie above). She knows she’s gorgeous, and she knows how to work the camera!

Nose

That's a Palomino nose!
