Friday’s Hunt April 9th

I made it!!
Article submitted, images for today’s post, and now, I have a wee bit of breathing room before I start editing some super ultra gorgeous shots I took over the weekend.

That means bbq, and some home made wine. Sounds like a darn fine plan before the new week begins…

Starts with N

Ghost

This numbskull came home with a helluva injury this past week.
He’s been on antibiotics and pain meds, plus I’m having to clean his wound several times a day. He’ll heal up just fine though. He’s a tough boy, my Ghost is.
Dang TomCat hormones…I’m tired of patching this guy up, I tell ya! So, he’s got a date to get neutered.
That should take the fight out of him…
And when he goes, Mr. TroubleCat will go too.
That way, everyone who is still here will be fixed.
Hopefully, no more will show up. :/

Week’s Favorite

Not the greatest technically, but, I love, love, love her enthusiasm here….

Sable

The water is almost all soaked in, and the Girls were ripping it up something fierce. I just happened to step outside with the camera and she popped her head over the gate to say hi!

Blue

I make wine.
After 14 years of not drinking, we moved to a farm, and we started drinking again. It’s nice, every now and then, to sit on the deck and have a drink.
And, I have come to enjoy creating my own wines. Eventually, I hope to have a grand little fruit patch to make wines from.

Hand in hand with that, goes the need for bottles.
Well, we have a good friend (actually, we have a few friends who do) who saves her empty bottles for us and she’s given me some really pretty ones…

Nancy is helping me…

And colours!
These are the prettiest shades of blue. 🙂

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!! 😡

Zip Tie Pie

Hello there, Daisy Mae here.
Or Weazy as Mom likes to call me. She says it’s short for “Weasel”, which is either a small carnivorous animal or a way of getting into things. I think she means it in the getting into things way, but I’m not sure. :/

I’m here to tell you about my favorite toy in the whole wide world. Even better than that stupid paper bag Nancy had. Mom calls them “zip ties” and she uses them to tie the dog’s house door shut.
I’ve learned that when they cut the ties off the dog’s house, they put them on top the house and forget about them. I like to steal the zip ties when no one is looking and play with them.
Nancy’s always trying to steal them from me. Grrrr! I tell him to go sit in his stupid cat bag that he won’t share with me.

Yesterday, Mom took some pictures of me…WITHOUT MY PERMISSION, I might add!!!…while I was playing with my zip tie.

If I take it to the bathroom, I can get to play with it by myself.

The 2 of them have had a great time fighting over who gets to be in the “house”. It seems though, that Nancy is far more attached to it than Daisy…he keeps winning the wrestling matches.

A Daisy Mae and Nancy Update

My plan, with the Meatloaf Litter, was to only keep Nancy.
He’s my special little guy.
When Sophie (now Suzy) and Robin (still Robin, because he’s a boy) went to their new furever home (together! Lucky kids. 🙂 ) I was only supposed to have 1 kitten in the house.
Why?
Well, because Daisy Mae was supposed to transition back outside, to live her life as a barn cat.

*sigh*

Didn’t happen.
She was inside too long, and she shed out her winter coat. Can’t put the poor little bug outside, with no winter coat.
And then, The Kid fell in love with her.
Okay, no. That’s no quite true…The Kid was in love with her since maybe 3 seconds after she found her? lol

Now we have 4 indoor cats.
Yay!

They’re growing very well. Weaned off the formula 3 weeks ago.
We’ve been leaving them free at night now too.
That’s been fun. Sort of. Kittens are smaller, more energetic versions of “Oh, you’re sleeping? I MUST PLAY NOW!!!” cats.
Sleep has been short.
I could be a Miserable Cow, if I wanted to, but 1 on the Farm is enough. 😉

That's our Daisy, bites Nancy's butt to force him out of the box.

The evil glowing eyed kitty is The Kid's.  Not mine.  My kitten is the Good Kitty.

Oh, but Miss Daisy can put on an innocent face when she wants to…

Daisy Mae...I almost believe she's innocent.  Almost.

Almost.

New Kittens Pictures

The Loaves are growing very well. As of yesterday, they are 4 weeks old, and booting around the living room like their tails are on fire. 🙂
They still sleep a lot, and we’re going about 4 hours between feedings, but they are eating A LOT more. Tummies are bigger, and they need that energy to grow.

Robin has some serious thoughts going on in there...

Nancy was trying to convince me his paws were cold and he had to sit on me. Nope. Go play, you little monkey!

The Mini Meatloaves

Yes, I call the kittens “Meatloaves”.
It’s because of Sophie…Sophie rhymes with loafie, which isn’t a real word, but I rhyme them together anyways. As in Sophie the Loafie.
I have no better explanation than that. I do have a few new pictures though…
