One thing we can usually depend on is wind. Saturday and yesterday were very windy. After checking heifers this morning, I am willing to guess today will be windy too. We are grateful that the temperature has been nice. Between the drought and wind it can be pretty dirty.
The best philosophy is to do one’s duties, to take the world as it comes, submit respectfully to one’s lot, and bless the goodness that has given us so much happiness with it – whatever it is. ~ Horace Walpole (1717-1797)
We had three heifers calve yesterday afternoon. They produced four babies, as one heifers had twins! We don’t get many sets of twins, so it’s exciting when a set is born. So far, everyone is doing well.
Fritz likes to go with me when we feed cows. Apparently, my bucket of twine was too much to leave alone. She is now 13 months old and still has a little puppy left to express.
We are at our very best and we are happiest when we are fully engaged in work we enjoy on the journey toward the goal we’ve established for ourselves. It gives meaning to our time off and comfort to our sleep. It makes everything else in life so wonderful, so worthwhile. ~ Earl Nightingale (1921-1989)
I hope your week is going well. For those of you dealing with winter weather, remember spring is just around the corner. For those of us dealing with drought, we continue to pray for much needed moisture.
Do you get a lot of wind where you live?
