Up and Running Again

I am back!  Early last week our Internet went on the blitz.  We had a technician come out and get us running again.  The next day the computer went haywire.  We suspected a virus.  The computer spent some time at the local computer guru’s and we got it back yesterday.  I can kind of stay connected with my Kindle Fire; just enough to keep in the loop.  J and I are glad to have our computer and Internet working!  Keeping our fingers crossed that we don’t get attacked with another virus.

Around the house… I am keeping my head above water.  I feel caught up and have been helping J on projects outside.  The weather has been beautiful and we are taking advantage.

I am pondering…  the simple things in life.  I love opening up windows and airing out the house on a February afternoon!  We have had several days with highs in the mid 40’s.  It’s feels good to be out and about and not bundled up fighting the wind.  I know it’s still winter, but we will enjoy the nice weather while we can.

A favorite quote for today…  Put your heart mind and soul into even your smallest acts.  This is the secret of success. ~ Old Standard

It’s the little details that are vital.  Little things make the big things happen. ~John Wooden

One of my favorite things…  friendship.  The friendship that J and I have.  The friendships I share with family members.  The friendships I have made with special people, neighbors and individuals in our community. 

Last weekend we had good friends come to visit.  We laughed, problem solved, listened to our hubby’s tell college stories, ate well, and loved the time we spent together.

A few plans for the rest of the week … With the nice weather J keeps coming up with projects.  Might as well do them now while the weather is nice and we are not calving. 

A peek into my day…  You guessed it, chores!  Other projects from this week … We set panels up in the calving shed, ground hay, did some mechanicing and odd jobs.  I even washed tractor windows.  We also made a trip to the dentist and ran some other errands in town.

    Glad you are back up and running! Although sometimes I find things like that happen for a reason, so we can give ourselves a break without feeling guilty about it, you know? Either way, glad to have you back! When do you guys start calving?

      The First Calf Heifers are due March 1st. I looked them over good today and we have very few starting to bag. I am sure things will start progressing in due time.

      Your neighbor’s bull is a tricky fellow, I see.

    It sounds like you have been getting a lot done with the nice weather!

      Hi Candy! Yes, we are getting a lot done. Today was busy and tomorrow we have several projects. Sounds like we have a storm moving in tomorrow night. We have a good chance for some much needed snow.

      I enjoyed your apron post. I have several and think they are fun.

  6. It’s a love hate relationship. We love it when it works and… well you know. 🙂

    Hope you’re using anti-viral software.
