Oh the December mud

Photobucket

Who doesn't love a good muddy December day? I can think of many years when we did not have snow by now, but usually we don't have mud. I don't appreciate December mud - but it is easier not having snow, I'll have to admit that. No plowing, no shoveling... it is fairly alarming to me that I have yet to wear my winter jacket though.

The animals enjoyed the sunshine we had this afternoon, and soaked up as much of it as they could. They didn't appreciate the mud either, they hate wet feet.

Here comes Barnaby... AKA, "the screamer" I have never heard a goat scream like he does - and I've heard a lot of goats scream.

Sammy and I took a little time to fit in a good snuggle... 

Photobucket

Flavious has put on his winter coat, so I imagine he finds it a little bit warm for his liking. 

Photobucket
Ah Barnaby, you are getting a little round bud... are you expecting? 

Photobucket

Bulrush spent most of the afternoon with his eyes half closed facing into the sun... 

Photobucket

Buckwheat spent his time sniffing.... 

Photobucket

Now this is interesting....

While the rut has calmed down considerably, and the boys are less hyper, they are still boys. And my handsome man is still pee stained.

Sammy says, you want to snuggle?

Dahlia always has her teeth out. It cracks me up. She has so many different expressions, it's always something. But this particular look always reminds me of something... does it remind you of anything? 

Photobucket

See the resemblance?

Once Buckwheat got over smelling and lip curling, he decided to sunbathe with Flavious...

Dahlia grinning...

I was surprised when I noticed a tuff of hair on Max's side, so I pulled it and realized he's shedding. A lot. 

Photobucket

Me: What is this Max? You are shedding?

Photobucket

Max: Yes, yes I am! I'm skipping winter... 

Photobucket

Max: Here give me that, I might need it again later if my plan of skipping winter doesn't work out... 

Photobucket

Even Jackson was out in the sunshine whenever the wind was down... 

Photobucket

The sunset this evening was beautiful. It was pink and promising another nice day tomorrow.

Photobucket

These clouds remind me of the pattern of turkey feathers...

Photobucket

The wind has come up tonight and it's cold outside. It also clouded up... The fire is roaring to keep us all nice and warm.  For dinner tonight, I whipped up some breakfast.

Photobucket

I love these baked potatoes, I season diced potatoes with lots of garlic, seasoned salt, pepper, and the mix in some shredded cheese, some browned onions and diced browned ham and about 2 diced pickled jalapenos... add in 1 cup of milk and some shredded Parmesan cheese and just bake them until they are browned, soft, cheesy and delicious. We had eggs with salsa to go with them.

And because he had a very long and busy day, Douglas is passed out.

I was hoping to see the meteor shower tonight, but as of right now there is nothing but clouds. I'm hoping it will clear up and that tonight or tomorrow night I'll be able to see something... If I'm lucky.

looks like the goats and pooches are enjoying the sun and warmth while its there. You can always keep all of the pups fur, especially if you brush them and have it washed and made into yarn for a scarf or sweater.

Dahlia's teeth crack me up! I love how she has them out all the time.

Flavious really does have a winter coat going! Our dog and cats are super furry right now, too!
