Both work and fun projects have kept us active this week. Ranch projects and little things makes a for a full week.
J did a few odd ball jobs, like mechanicing and small fencing projects. The lawn mower is ready to do some work, if the sun ever comes out.
Last Saturday J and I helped a neighbor work calves. On the way home we stopped and visited another neighbor. We had a nice day off the ranch.
This is how Rosie and I spend time while waiting for J when he is on the phone. We like to entertain ourselves by taking pictures and sending texts. This is a smartphone picture straight out of the camera; all I did was crop and add my watermark.
Monday J’s folks, J and I fenced around one of our summer pastures. This pasture has canyons (or deep draws) and a lot of fence got wiped out by the October Blizzard. It took us the majority of the day. J and his Dad went around another summer pasture on Tuesday. They also took their fishing poles along, but no fish were brought home.
I completed another crafty project. I pecked away at it when J didn’t need me outside. Look for a blog post in the near future.
Weather permitting we are wanting to work calves on Saturday. I have my menu and a plan in mind. We’ll see if the rain holds off this weekend. If not, Tuesday we shall try to brand.
We are seeing a little spring. The grass is starting to green, we can easily row the winter wheat and I will need to mow the yard soon. Monday evening we had a thunderstorm come through; Tuesday we had .80″ of rain in the gauge. Wednesday it drizzled most of the day. This morning we have dark cloudy skies and wind.
J had a meeting on Wednesday and I got caught up on more odd ball jobs. I am feeling pretty good about getting more “little things” crossed off my metal list. Notice the new blog header? I might have to quit procrastinating on pressing my basket full of good pants as J told me his last pair of town pants are dirty. I think the last time I got the press out was 2013.
