Visiting make our hearts smile

This week,

I spied a beautiful sunrise.


and some dark clouds that I thought might bring rain, but didn’t.

DonkeyWe also had visitors.

Family and friends.

A friend has brought her grandchildren out for individual visits to the animals this summer.  We love it.  The animals soak up the extra attention (and treats).

Plus, Pig-farmer’s daughter and granddaughter visited!

I never know what I am to be called.  Hopefully, Miss Cutie Pie will have a name for me all her own.  Maybe I’ll be Granny Goat?  or Goat Granny?

She loves cows.  Maybe I could be MOO-Maw!?

This week, I also weed-eated until my arm muscles cramped up.

There was lunch at the Sale Barn with my Mom, sis, son and Pig-farmer.

I trimmed a few bushes for my mom-in-law; but we spent longer sitting and visiting on the porch.  We have our priorities straight.

On my way home, I saw a friend working along the road, combating weeds. I pulled over and had a nice chat.  Sorry for interfering with your work.  I guess I should have assisted with the the weed removal?

This week, I also watched the flowers, bees and butterflies.

I also had a scandalous night.

Oh now, let me explain.

My sister has gotten me hooked on the tv show, Scandal.  We have been watching past episodes so I am all caught up when the new season starts in September.  It’s a guilty pleasure.  Usually I read, but my two shows are Downton Abbey and now, Scandal.

It doesn’t come on until 9:00 PM.

I will have to Just Make the Coffee.  😉

    Your pictures are beautiful! Miss Cutie Pie must love coming to the farm to visit, and I think “Moo-maw” is a cute name for you! Loved that you enjoyed sitting and chatting with your MIL.

    A week of friendly visits, butterflies, bees and flowers is a winner in my book. Enjoy your scandalous behavior; Moo-Maw– that’s a hoot!

  5. I like Moo-Maw, too! Kids and animals just go together so well. Both our grandkids love to “help” me. My coworkers were talking about Scandal, too so I’m trying to get started on back episodes.
