The pasture that boarders us to the west is owned by a man from North Dakota who runs yearlings; lots of yearlings. Being curious animals yearlings aren’t afraid to come up to the fence and check out what’s happening. Being the photographer I am, I like to take their picture.
When we go to the Big City I like to stop at Gordman’s. I think it’s a fun store and I always find a good deal on something I really don’t need. I was excited when I found Chocolate Fudge Brownie flavored coffee on clearance. Yes, you read that right Chocolate Fudge Brownie flavored coffee! It smells and tastes heavenly.
I finally finished The Goldfinch. It took me forever to read: 1) May was hectic, the days were long and by evening my attention span got short and my eyelids heavy 2) It’s a long book. I consider The Goldfinch in the same genre as The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. If you liked ‘s book series you will probably like Donna Tartt as well.
I spent yesterday morning power washing tractors and cleaning the inside. This is not my favorite job as I don’t enjoy being wet and muddy. I will admit washing went good, I had a decent morning to work and I like to see the results of my labor. Rosie loves to help; she has no problem being wet or muddy. I requested that J wash windows. This morning I get to tackle smaller vehicles.
Yesterday Cousin T came over for dinner. We fed him before branding the last 11 babies. All calves are worked and ready for grass!
We continue to be blessed with moisture; we’ve had nice showers several evenings this week. There has been sever weather in the Black Hills and across Nebraska. Prayers to those that have experienced extreme storms, hail or tornadoes.
