tempus fugit darnit

Tansy and Fern are eight weeks old.

Where does the time go?

Both are already exploring career paths.

Tansy seems inclined to become a bonsai specialist:

"Bonsai...that's the thing where you take a normal tree 
and make it be tiny, right?"

While Fern is apparently interested in becoming a physicist:

"Look! I can already diffract light with my ear!!"

Meanwhile, I'm doing my very best to keep plugging away.
Repairing fence. Adding gates. Rebuilding. Replacing.
Very glad to have a hired helper for a couple of hours weekly.

My old friend HayMan stopped by for a chat last week.
I mentioned that I just can't seem to "get caught up"
and he said, "Everybody is still trying to catch up after last Winter. Doesn't matter what kind of place you have or how big or small it is, everybody got behind and is still trying to catch up."

So maybe that's the way the Summer is going to go?
Makes me feel a little more tired just thinking about it!

But now it's Sunday night, the chores are done,
and all is peaceful.
Here's to a fresh, new week for all of us!


  1. Hi Quinn, I have enjoyed catching up with you tonight. If the rain don'r stop we will never get caught up. So many of our area rivers are out of their banks.. It seems as though we get rain every day anymore. I have a pond in my back yard where there is a low lying area. Take care and I always enjoy when you stop by. Take care Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend Shirley

  2. I hope you do get enough rest with all the things you do.
    Amazing goats you have, so sharp and intelligent. Fren is a genious.

    1. And a better speller, Fern be as well. lol

  3. Fern the physicist! You made me laugh with that one, and with the great photo to go with it!

    Even here, I feel as if I am constantly running to catch up. And I don't have any goats!

  4. You certainly put a huge smile on my face with the kids! :D They grow up so soon! It is true, everyone seems behind... I know my garden is wayyyyyy behind. I haven't planted a single seed and am beginning to think that a trip to the nursery just might be in order if I plan on having any veggies this year! Oh well, getting those dang raised bed in was a feat that warmed my heart even if they remain empty for this season.
    Hugs for now my sweet blogging sister,

    1. A trip to the nursery sounds good! and/or you could just get a packet of seeds and poke them in the earth and see what happens? I'm going to be planting more beans this week (my first ones are coming up now) and I just read that this is a good time for a "second planting" of chard...which for me will be the first ;)

  5. Gosh darn it they are so cute in their little jackets. I get tired just thinking of all that you do over there. But you are only one you, so whatever needs to be done, do, and the rest, well, just take it one day, one moment at a time. Best wishes, Tammy

  6. Wow - it's amazing how fast the little ones have grown!
