Bear sign

I like Louis L'Amour books. They are like Harlequin romances for guys, a quick easy read with most of the elements that make a good story. Yeah, all his main characters are basically the same, and the endings to his books are pretty abrupt, and towards the end of his career his writing quality gets a bit iffy, but all in all his stories are pretty entertaining in a don't-take-them-too-seriously kind of way.

Hubby made doughnuts the other day for the first time. After he was finished, he looked at them and realized why Louis' cowboys called them "bear sign". The name isn't particularly appetizing. But boy, are they tasty.

Eve is wondering what all that blue stuff in the sky is, and where that big yellow ball came from. My goats are very scraggly. And due to kid in about two weeks. Yesterday I dewormed and deloused them and trimmed their hooves. Later this week I will shear their udder areas. Gotta make it easier for the babes to find their food. From their belly sizes, I'd say Eve has a single kid and Dawn has twins. But we'll see what happens. I could be disappointed again, like last year. Fingers crossed for easy births and healthy kids.

Ooooh, those donuts looks WONDERFUL! Not nice to post a picture like that when there's no chance we can have one.

What breed are your goats? That little sweetheart in the barn doorway looks a lot like a sheep!
