It has been productive last few days. I did manage to get into the kitchen for a little bit. I have been trying to participate in Sarah Halstead and Lori’s Fall Bucket List Challenge. Sunday morning I decided to try a new recipe. I made cookies, but didn’t bake them. I stuffed candy in Oreos and dipped them in candy coating. Eat candy and make cookies … does that count? from the was a fun little project. The Hubby and Cousin T love them! I also learned that J likes to spread peanut butter on Oreos.
We have lots of tumbleweeds!
Saturday, Cousin T worked cattle. Sunday, J and his Dad did the last few tasks to get ready to wean calves. Today we weaned calves and worked them.
More cattle work to come this week. Tuesday J and his folks are going to do some sorting. I have to go to the town job.
The cattle work goes in spurts. When it’s time to work cattle everyone in our crew needs to work cattle. It can get a little hectic, but we are blessed to have great people to trade labor with.
The calves are serenading us with the sound of bawling. Bawling calves has never bothered me; it’s when there is silence we worry. Now that the calves are weaned and cows are home on winter pasture chores become part of the daily routine.
