The daily practice of gratitude keeps the heart open regardless of what comes our way. ~Anonymous
Tuesday J and I made a trip to the Hills. We dropped off his 4-wheeler at the mechanic and picked up my new glasses. I got bigger lenses and I can see so much better with no scratches to look through. A trendy frame and fun saleswoman topped off the purchase.
Have you eaten at Blaze Pizza? I love the build your own idea and old fashion open oven. It’s like going to subway only you’re getting a pizza vs. a sandwich.
Wednesday I cleaned house. I hadn’t done a deep clean for a few weeks and decided I better scrub the tub and mop floors. Molly got a much needed bath and I put my snowman decor away for the winter. I’m not quite ready to get out spring/easter decor, it is February after all.
Thursday afternoon J thought it looked like the bred heifers were acting funny. He went to see what was going on and found this little gal. She’s early, she’s tiny and she’s got spunk! Sunday afternoon baby #2 arrived. From the looks of things, I think it will be a few days until we get another calf, but you never know. We brought the girls in last night and stared night checks, hello calving season 2016.
It’s hard to be grateful for wind, so I’m going to say we had an exceptionally windy Friday. The front hit early in the night. It between the howling wind and rain pelting the windows we didn’t get much sleep. I am glad our old ranch house is built solid!
Northwest of us 60ish miles had recorded wind gusts of 83 mph. There were many recordings of 70+ mph gusts within 40 miles of us.
Saturday was a gorgeous day for J and I to be outside. We swapped the bred heifers and the calves. The heifers are now in the “calving pasture” with easy access to the barn. This swap means moving bunks and cattle.
Sunday afternoon we sorted calves and picked out our replacement heifers.
On the agenda this week, more cattle sorting and shipping a few calves.
The above collage is what I sent Mom for her birthday.Mom’s birthday is coming up later this week and she opened the gift I sent her early.
What are you grateful for today?
