This week I wrap up with the last three prompts from The Simple Woman’s Day Book and add a couple random thoughts.
One of my favorite things… Rosie. It’s fun to have someone to ride along with me during chores. I am not a huge fan of Rosie’s big muddy paws and all the dirt she drags into the entry, but I still like her! She is getting more curious and wants to help in the cattle lots. Unfortunately J and I don’t want her to “help” just yet. Rosie is constantly getting sent to the house as we don’t want her or us getting hurt.
A few plans for the rest of the week … Friday afternoon is the funeral for our family friend. J and I have been blue this week. It’s hard to lose a special person and hard to watch loved ones go through this difficult time. We have college friends coming out for the funeral and they are going to spend the rest of the weekend visiting us.
A peek into my day … The wind and cold has made it almost impossible to do very many outside projects. J and I do chores and lay low in the afternoon. I have been cooking, getting ready for guests and picture editing.
Cattle Stuff … Wednesday turned out to be a nice day. We had a neighbor come over to help us run the first calf heifers through the chute. One step closer to calving. In a month we will be watching these girls close.
A blog post I like … Amanda at Wildly Simple is one of my of my favorite bloggers. Amanda shares her everyday life and experiences as a Mom in northern Minnesota. Every once in a while she tactfully shares her opinion and I usually have to giver her a thumbs up! This week she talks about blogging and what it means to her.
