Farm life is all about the animals..
this little one looks like he is saying a ‘prayer?’
They all need to be fed and watered and picked up after..
These two beauties are in the pasture next to the trailer and they seem to be quite curious with regards to the ‘white box on wheels’ and of course, Tucker, too..
They hang their heads over the fence when it gets close to feeding time so today we fed them some baby carrots..they weren’t too sure about this ‘orange treat’..
dropping the carrots a few times before they finally got the hang of it..
Tucker, of course has his own ‘orange treat’..
‘throw the ring please Momma?’
Today was another warm day and we ventured to the backside of the trailer in search of some shade..
The thermometer was acting ‘crazy’..
I have no idea what the ‘OFL’ means..but within an hour or so it was back to a normal reading..we are hoping that today will be the end of the warmer weather at least for a few days..
Orange clouds in the sky this evening..
A little bird family will be homeless this evening..I found their ‘house’ on the ground in the orchard..good thing they hadn’t moved in yet?
..spring has sprung here in Keremeos that is for sure..
warm days and cool nights make this a perfect time of year…
the trees are blooming..
and the birds are chirping…and then there is a very large collection of frogs that croak through the night…
Tucker enjoys his ‘freedom’ time..nice to run free for a little while!!
We spent some time in the garage today..organizing our ‘stuff’..what to keep..what to bring and what to leave behind..
the process went rather quickly..
only a few of the blue bins are coming along for the summer adventure..
We are trying to travel light this season..no sense bringing along stuff we don’t need!!
Friday morning we woke to rain hitting the roof..a strange sound that we haven’t heard in a while..the rain was short lived so at least the outside work was completed..
It was ‘wash, wax and build day’..
The trailer was in dire need of a wash..thanks to the tree we were parked next to at Nk’mip..’raining sticky sap!!’
Doug also built a new platform for under the stairs..we left our big ‘stairs’ at the storage lot in Osoyoos..
the barn cat, Crusher, decided to give it a ‘four paws up’!
While Doug was busy outside I made a casserole for dinner..’slum-gullion’..nothing fancy, just kraft dinner, hamburger and a can of diced tomatoes..
and some cranberry muffins and a loaf..
Tucker spent the day ‘guarding’..
and the ‘little boy?’..he held down the ‘big boy bed’ for most of the day..
so there you have our week in Keremeos..
onward to the weekend..the chores are complete and we are heading into the ‘big city’!!
