We continue to experience beautiful spring like weather. Actually, last weekend was more early summer like.
J and I went to the Hills on Saturday for one last trip before we start calving cows. We ate at the Texas Roadhouse. It was excellent. I had the sirloin kabob. J the pulled pork and rib plate. All melt in your mouth delicious!
I let the dogs out at 10 pm Saturday night. In the 3-4 minutes they were out Roxie and Molly found an uninvited guest. I didn’t know what was going on, just that Molly was going crazy. I got the dogs in the entryway and soon realized what was hiding out in Roxie’s dog house. 20 minutes later the skunk was dead, things were stinky and the dogs got to go “camping” in the garage. Great fun!
Sunday afternoon I experimented with PicMonkey. I have never used a picture editing program other than the one that came with my camera. I had fun playing around with my pictures and love the program!
Monday morning at 5 am, I put a heifer in the barn that had toes out. This means baby on the way! At 5:30 I checked her again, she had made a little progress. By the size of the calf’s feet I really thought the heifer should have the calf on her own. She was working, just needed a couple more minutes. I stayed and watched birth. It had been years since I have seen an actual natural birth. What a great way to start the day! By 6:30 baby was licked off, walking and looking for some breakfast.
J is starting to get tractors ready to farm. We keep praying for some moisture to come our way. May showers feeds spring grass and summer crops. I see the lawn is starting to green up already.
And so goes life on the ranch. You just never know how your day will start, end or what kind of adventures will commence in the between.
Do you have a skunky story to share? Have you tried PicMonkey or the Texas Roadhouse?
