This Week: Friday Follow-Up

This week:

-- It's been a lovely week with warmer temperatures but the wind has been pretty strong and the fire danger has been high. This is our usual late winter weather pattern. After our bitter cold start, I was afraid we'd have a brutal winter, but the forecasters are saying it should be more "normal" now.

-- This week's posts included:

French Onion Soup, week #2 in my Month of Soups series

-- Michael, the barn cat, has recovered well from his abscessed facial wound. He's been such a patient boy about taking his medication. He doesn't like the taste, and gags and shakes his head after I give it to him, but he's so good about letting me hold him and open his mouth to squirt it in with a needle-less syringe. Since I'm allergic to penicillin, I'm thankful that he doesn't splatter it all over me.

-- We've passed the second anniversary of the barn fire in which I lost my first herd of goats. It was a little easier this time, with the six new kids frolicking around.

  1. Sorry to hear about the cat. Nice that he helps with the meds though. We've had strangely cold temps this year - colder sooner than "normal" if there is a normal anymore. :)

  2. I hope it warms up for you soon, Staci!
