Last Friday I saw blooms in the plum thickets. I was excited to take advantage of a bright blue sky and evening light. The first blooms of spring warm my heart and am keeping my eyes open for lilac blossoms.
Our April 30th branding went good. We had a gorgeous morning to work calves before the wind hit. We have intentions to work another group of calves tomorrow, but will have to see what this weather pattern does today.
The cows are trickling along with calving. We might get a calf or 3 one day, then go a day or two with none. The tail enders seem to take forever to have babies.
With the nice weather it feels good to be out working and not bundled up like an Eskimo.We had a rain shower on Monday; just enough to wet the ground and spot up my glasses while checking cows. Yesterday we ended up on the edge of the moisture and received .38″ of rain. We were glad to get the moisture, but are on the dry side.
Saturday we traveled to the Hills to celebrate the life of J’s Uncle who lost is battle with cancer. Again, it was a beautiful spring day. The type of day that reminds us to be grateful for each day we have on earth and the importance of faith, friendship and family.Yesterday was the last afternoon of religious education for the current school year. We playe games instead of having class. It was fun to watch the kids unwind and I enjoyed how the kids interacted with each other. The 5th graders showed leadership skills and all of the kids included everyone in the games. Watching the youth of our Church helps me see the good in our community and the bright future ahead.
