My Old Girl

Sir William the Goat

I like goats. Maybe because my parents’ next door neighbors had goats on the back of their property and if I close my eyes I can still hear the goats bleating or whatever noise it is goats make. Or maybe I’m just weird. Whatever the reason I am kind of fascinated with goats. So when a friend said her kids brought a little goat they found walking up the road home from their grandparents I had to meet him. With camera in hand of course. So without further ado, meet Sir William.






Photo Friday: Excitement

My sweet girl. Our Nemo. She’s getting old. She’s almost seven years old. Her hip and knee bother her, but she’s still the sweetest. (Squirt named her when he was four when “Finding Nemo” was so popular and he thought he was getting a boy dog.) See that tail? She’s excited. She knows her beloved chicken toy is about to be thrown and a game of fetch will begin. She lives for games of fetch.

Linking up with xoxo, Trina for Photo Friday. 


Project Life: August 16 – 22, 2010

Welcome back to another week of my Project Life photos. Be sure to check out Jessica Turner's blog for more Project Life links on Tuesdays. Also check out the last photo's caption for a link to a music giveaway I have going on over at Alabama Bloggers.

Monday, August 16, 2010 – DH sat down pecking out keys on the piano and the little cat kept going back and forth, up and down underneath the piano hearing the sounds. It was so funny, but of course by the time I got the video camera out he was tired of the game.

Tuesday, August 17, 2010 – Every few summers when we have a hot, dry summer these spider webs or whatever they are show up in the trees. It's not very pretty.

Wednesday, August 18, 2010 – I spent a couple of days last week and this week helping a dear teacher friend of mine fluency test students at two of our schools.

Thursday, August 19, 2010 – I made the ultimatum. Either get some of the legos put away or else. So DH and Squirt pulled them out and tore the kits down and put each kit in its own extra large ziploc bag.

Friday, August 20, 2010 – Could it be? Can I actually see the carpet? I spent the day cleaning house which was much needed and thanks to DH and Squirt his room is clean. Now how long will it last?

Saturday, August 21, 2010 – As I was making my way back home from downtown I noticed a tree at the corner of the student parking lot had been rolled. Probably in celebration of the football team's football win the night before.

Sunday, August 22, 2010 – I didn't get a personal photo for today, but I had an afternoon session with a friend of ours who needed some updated photos for his website. I laughed so much during this session. He couldn't keep a serious face when I was taking photos of him and would burst out laughing which didn't help my camera shake at all, but we managed to get some good shots I think. At least I hope he thinks so. And I have a giveaway open to anyone in the U.S. of some of his music in a guest post over on Alabama Bloggers. Just leave a comment on this post for a chance to win.
