A Snake in the Wood Pile!

While preparing dinner Boogie was occupying himself with the fire wood we had carried in. It wasn't long before I heard screams of "SNAKE! Mommie! Mommie! SNAKE!" from the dining room. Dear Son, it's 20 degrees out, I'm certain there is no snake. As a dutiful Mommie I responded to his cries and found......

a grub!

He was quite fascinated by it and fortunately was in bed before it met its end in the wood stove.
Yeah, contact PETA, but I wasn't going to try to raise the darn thing!

Dear Mr. Groundhog, You lied!

It has now been 7, yup count 'em 7, weeks since you predicted an early spring, so why is it still cold with snow showers? I really want to get the potatoes in and I still can't leave the broccoli and cauliflower seedlings out in the hoop house some nights. What's up with that Phil?
Sunday morning one of my young does had her first kid, the cutest, teeniest little doe. I think I am done with goat kids for the season now, unless my youngest has a kid this summer.
I am still expecting I-Lean, my three footed Jersey heifer, to have her calf the end of this month. Can't wait to have milk for the baby goats, homemade cheese and

I have a lot of seedlings started and still need to start LOTS more. I also need to get Boogies live Christmas tree planted as soon as it is dry enough to dig a hole.

C'mon Spring!

Battle for the Bed

Apparently the fact that it is called a dog bed has no bearing on the Boogie-man. He has decided that the new pet bed should be for his television viewing comfort.

Poor Tank has been forcibly evicted many times now.

While he has been victorious a few times, for the most part the bed is now Boogie territory! LOL

The child has even been known to 'share' the dogs treats with them :-{
Nothing sweeter (or quieter) then a sleeping Boogie.
Waiting on 2 more does to freshen, need to pick up new rabbit cages from a friend about and hour away and still have some work to get done on the hoop house.
The wood pile is dwindling, but I think there is enough to make it through to warmer days. I am hoping that day isn't too much further off!
