Not Again!


We hardly ever get snow in Western Washington. This year is different. This morning I woke up to this....



So I decided to post a few pictures of flowers to remind me that spring is right around the corner. These were all taken while I sat on the couch.





And a picture of my new chicken that I found in Boulder.


And Stormy's sad eyes. Don't let them fool you she is the happiest dog in the world.

Especially when it snows!

We had a smidgen of snow here this morning too, but nothing stuck, as yours did.

I too am trying to find reminders of spring. This winter seems to be lasting forever!

Great flower pics and doggie eyes!

Clare said...

AND, what an artistic chicken! Love it!

Holly said...

ACK! Keep it there keep it there!

Holly said...

oh yeah...LOVE the chicken.

Marigold said...

Oy. We had some too...at least it melted. Oy. Perhaps Spring is one of those myths generated by aliens.

Snow, huh? We thankfully didn't get any down here this time. Though when we woke up on Saturday morning, it was 25 degrees! Done with this!!
We've had incredible amounts of rain and huge wind gusts, though...lots of tree branches down (again)...
Let's remember this winter in July and have a really good laugh, ok?

p.s.
nice flower pics from the couch.

Clare, I know, those were my exact words-artistic chicken.

Holly, Last I heard the snow was moving your way:)

Marigold, It's really not spring until the forsythia blooms. I will let you know when that happens.
Forsythia....now that's a good name for a goat, don't you think?

I am surprised you did get any snow farmgirl. What a surprise...and a cruel joke when someone wants to get the lambs out of the "green bathroom"

Hello Goatgirl,
I am enjoying your blog. The little ones are so adorable. I can't hardly wait to have some goats, chickens, geese, ducks, etc. My hubby & I will be moving out to the O.P. in the spring of 2011. Probably to the Aberdeen area. We currently live in Pa. So no cute little ones until after the move. Will have to live vicariously through your blog until then. Our snow just melted, but still very chilly & windy here.

Hello Elizabeth,
Do you mean Aberdeen, Washington? I'm glad you are enjoying my blog. Hopefully we will get some baby goats this summer too. Welcome!

Elizabeth said...

yes Aberdeen Washington. We will be coming out in June to try and find the piece of property that we want. We are from Calif. originally, sort of. I was born in Oregon and my hubby in N.Calif. but since he was in the Air Force we have lived all over the U.S. The majority in N.Calif.

Elizabeth, I spent a lot of time in Aberdeen as a kid. My great aunt lived there. My family is from Raymond, where I was born. There is some lovely farmlands in the area and you should be able to get a good deal as the area's economy in struggling due to the closure of the Weyerhauser mill.
Good luck and happy land shopping. What fun. Just watch out for land that floods. And since we did have terrible flooding in that area this winter that won't be too hard to check on.

Oh and welcome to Washington.

Nina said...

Hi Goat Girl! i just found your blog tonight (darned insomnia) and was delighted by your writing and pictures! i just have one dog here but i can't wait to see what happens next on your lil farm. btw it's definitely spring down here on the MS Coast, sending spring thoughts your way!

goatgirl said...

Hi Nina, I am glad you found my blog and like my stories. Thanks for the spring thoughts. Today, on the first day of spring, it is raining here and I am scheduled to take the lambs into the kindergarten class for a little hands on experience. Let's hope for a break in the weather.
Spring, Where are you?

Elizabeth said...

Thanks for the welcome. Yeah we have been out in that area a few times & love it, rain and all. Not flooding though lol... As I said I was born in Oregon & my hubby says that I have webbed feet - cause I love the rain. Thanks for the info. We have 5 dogs who don't like the rain so it will be fun to see how they adjust to living out there. They love the snow. We have to haul them inside to thaw cause they will stay out for hours in the snow.

Nina said...

oh i can't wait to hear how the kindergartners and the lambs do! i know my niece would love something like that. definitely hope the rain lets up. i'm guessing wet, muddy lambs wouldn't be much fun.

I am in Gig Harbor too! I'm looking for some Nigerian dwarf goats. Do you know anyone local? I'd like to find someone. Thanks! My email is cmasyeq@hotmail.com
