Sunday’s Reprieve

The arctic cold reared its ugly, frozen head again Sunday evening.  Quiet and calm one minute – roaring, arctic winds the next.  It was eerie.  Unwelcome.  However, we had a wonderfully beautiful, warm (43 degrees) Sunday afternoon! 

After Sunday school, church and lunch out with my Mom- and Dad-in-law, Pig-farmer and I headed to my Mom’s soul-restoring timber along the Kaskaskia river.  We tromped around to our hearts’ content.

Then, it was time to do chores.  TK, a.k.a. Tom Kitty (creative, aren’t I?), followed me out to the goat barn.  He thought he could be king of the barnyard while the goats were busy eating.


What is more curious than a cat?


A goat, of course!

There was even time to enjoy a beautiful sunset before the winds whipped up their nasty concoction of freezing temperatures.

    What a pretty cat you have. I love the curiosity trait; bunnies are very curious, too. Great sunset photo. We’re getting snowed on again.

    Your header was our sky one night…it was just wonderful. I stood outside in it and tried to become the light….HAHAHAHAH!

    Hopefully the presence of the dogs will scare the fox off to other territory, beautiful skies!

    I also loved your pink and blue skies!! Goats are just as much fun as dogs I think!
