Bits and Pieces for Friday

This week was the perfect week to whittle down that long list of Spring chores.
The flower beds around the house are mulched.
The blueberry patch is mulched.


The pumpkin patch has landscaping fabric down as a weed barrier.


Check, check, check.

Chores must be interspersed with plenty of puppy play time, too.
I am happy to report that yesterday afternoon as I was out doing the afternoon chores,
I left our little Annie in the house with Oakley...out of her room.
Normally she stays in the laundry room where her bed is located.
For two hours she stayed in the house and did nothing naughty!!
What a good girl!

We are at that time of year when the equines' grazing is limited to just a couple hours 
each afternoon.


I love the sight of the horses and donkeys out in the front pasture....


peacefully nibbling away.

Afterwhile, though, the call goes out..."Let's go!!" I call,
and Moonbeam comes running in first...always first....


followed by Donnie...


The donkeys make their way in, as well, knowing that yummy feed awaits them.


Scarlett and the Littles...
not so much.
No, they try to get every last blade of grass possible before heading into their dry lot.

These two always make me chase them back into the dry lot.
Maybe they think I need just a little more exercise in my already full day.


It's hard to get upset with them, though...


they are both so stinkin' cute!


And this week's winner of the cute award?
Of course....


Bobby loves Annie and takes every opportunity to snuggle up beside her...
even though the look on his face is utter disgust...


he truly is one happy kitty!


And I have to tell you...
these two make me want to break into song...
like Rosemary Clooney and Vera Ellen...
"Sisters....sisters....there were never such devoted sisters...."

Well, it's another Friday!!
Here's hoping you have a wonderful weekend.
We'll be back on Monday with lots more "tails" to share!

"Lord help the mister that comes between me and my sister, and Lord help the sister that comes between me and my man!" I love that song!

Annie with the kitty is just too precious. It looks like a wonderful time to enjoy being outside. I hope you have a fantastic weekend!

I just love all your animals. I know it must be hard work living on a farm but you sure make it seem fun. : )

I think White Christmas with Bing Crosby & Danny Kaye singing "Sisters", was the very first musical I remember seeing. As a little kid, I remember thinking it would be great if people in real life if people suddenly burst into song & dance just like in the musicals. Actually, I still think it would make life more fun.
I love that Bobby is teaching Annie the fine farm tradition of knowing how to get along with one another. Annie is such a paws-on learner. Super sweet photos. The little are such cuties and how could anyone resist those pale blue eyes & long lashes? Your pasture do looks beautiful this time of year. Lots of chores getting checked off your list. The big payoff will come this Summer when those those delicious blueberries are ready to be picked & eaten.
