What a difference a week makes....

Thursday, November 21, 2013

HI..the weather has taken a turn for cold!! and we have snow now too..winter is here now!! emoticon

It has been a busy week, I have finished painting the bedroom, did lots of cleaning and does one accumulate so many clothes??? ugh....

The cowboy finished hauling the flax straw bales he bought from the neighbor so I was doing most of the chores while he was busy doing this the last 3 days. We also took an old bull and cow to market on Monday so I had another day of Christmas shopping (Saturday I went to a local Christmas craft fair which was lots of fun and visiting too)

My Christmas preps are coming along great..the cards are all done but for one address, I bought the nieces and nephews lotto scratch tickets instead of the Tim Horton cards after the wreck I had a Timmies emoticon

All this getting ready for Christmas early is because we are having early Christmas with my daughter and her family and a joint birthday party for my youngest granddaughter on Dec I have the majority of their gifts..just need to wrap and get a few more things, mail my cards and do some baking and I'll be all set.

I'm puttering along with the house cleaning and then I can start decorating the house. I want to really cut down on the decorations this year, especially since we are having a quiet Christmas. The outside house lights are up and the inflatables are out. I asked the cowboy to bring up one of the old tractors to put lights on but he's been too busy..anytime is fine and I'll decorate it them emoticon

I haven't been able to do as much on the 5% challenge as I hoped...just so busy but the fitness points are still much to do on the farm all the time...

Well..I'm just relaxing and watching a hockey game while cowboy sleeps on the couch. A cozy fire in the wood stove and the kitties are sleeping near us...almost time for bed..less than 10 minutes left of the game and Edmonton is ahead emoticon

Thanks for dropping by and keep on Sparkin'

    sounds like a nice quiet evening....a fire and kitties! I really miss having a fireplace, but even if I had one here, I'd have to run the air conditioning to avoid getting too hot!

    Wow - you're way ahead of me. I've done quite a bit of cleaning and maybe half thr shopping. Will probably do the cards in about a week. Parcels have been sent to Australia. No baking yet, Burma thinking about which goodies to make.

Enjoy the rest of your prep.

Having some Indian Summer :)

Thursday, November 14, 2013

Hi the weather has been really nice here..not our typical November weather :)

Yesterday I helped with some more fencing and put up the Christmas lights on the house. Didn't do too much painting, but a bit more..I'm now on the wood panelling and it needs to be primed first...

In the late afternoon we went down to Plentywood Montana ( we live very close to the US border..aout 35 miles) We did a bit of shopping there and I got my photos done for my Christmas cards at the Drugstore. We also bought a few groceries and beer and then out for supper...I think this week's weigh in may not be too good with all the meals out and extra treats :(

Today I helped round up and move the herd to a different fall grazing spot, then helped with more fencing and then put up one more string of lights (I was short a set so got another one at Plentywood) And got back to painting in the bedroom.

We had an oil man here signing up for some mud spreading and water access for a new well a few miles from us. The rig is supposed to move in on the weekend...

My oldest daughter messaged me with some Christmas wish lists and sizes etc. She is in a new relationship with a man with 4 kids and she has 2 girls..but unfortunately I won't see them at Christmas ..she has to work and the girls go to their dad's this year..but we will have early Christmas at her place and also celebrate her daughter's birthday around the 14th of I have been trying to get things ready early....

So after this busy day I am just catching up on blogging and other web sites, watching a hockey game and the cowboy is already asleep on the couch...

Time to sign off..hope you all have a great weekend..thanks for dropping by and keep on Sparkin'

emoticon Love Donna

Remember to be AWESOME and get some sleep... emoticon emoticon

    You are doing well with getting everything ready for Christmas and being so well organised. I have yet to get my act together in that department. Well done

More cattle to market today...

Tuesday, November 12, 2013

Hi..we had a quiet and cold holiday Monday..we were busy with the cattle..rounded up the herd and moved them home and sorted the old ones for market. We found out we were missing some so off we went back to the fields and brought in the 40 we had missed...then more sorting...

We watched quite a few programs on the history channel that were on for Remembrance Day. Didn't have a large enough span of time to get back painting in the bedroom but did some other jobs there..washed the sheets and matts, set up an electric fireplace we bought from our daughter when she moved, hung the newly washed curtains and a new wall hanging for over the bed.

I had a good night's sleep as usual..I do love to sleep lol!! emoticon

Today we sorted and loaded the cattle for market. I also took a few pictures for us to use in our Christmas cards. Then off to Weyburn and unloaded the cattle (the sale is tomorrow) Then we went out for lunch..waffles and strawberries..yum yum! Then I did a bit of shopping. Had quite a disappointing day..first when I went to exchange the little pjs they didn't have the same style..I wanted the littlests 2 to have matching pjs....

...then off to Walmart for the pictures....they have 3 picture machines and the instant machine was busy all afternoon and the other two were one hour only (what I wanted) but the one hour service wasn't available since they had run out of paper. They were telling people to do their photos and come back later in the week.... groan since it's more than a one hour drive each way....

...then off to Tim Horton's to meet the in-laws for coffee and get the gift cards for my nieces and nephews...11 $5 gift hard can that be?? took forever and then it was all screwed up and the clerk couldn't get her manager on the phone and she cancelled it from my credit card..I hope!! so ..

...not the jammies I wanted, no pictures and no gift cards..booo...

I need to go to someplace else for Christmas shopping!! Very disappointing emoticon

Well off to bed ..tomorrow us a new day..thanks for dropping by and keep on Sparkin'

Love Donna emoticon

    It's frustrating when things are so far away and you have trouble getting your organized errand list completed! I sympathize, although now we live in town we used to live an hour away from a mall or movie theatre, and it was a big deal to plan a trip in those certainly learn to be more organized, make good lists and not forget anything!

    How frustrating! That seems to happen to me when I run errands.....crazy little things that prevent me from getting them done.

    Isn't it frustrating when you have it all planned and organized... and then something out of your control interferes.

We watched a lot of the programs on the History Channel on Nov. 11 also, and learned things we never knew.

    I understand what you mean about the 1 hour trip; some places just don't understand that it takes that long to get there and then back again. Last year I resorted to gift cards bought from the local post office which covered most of the major stores. Not sure what I will do this year

Better sleep...

Sunday, November 10, 2013

Hi..I have had a busy day and I'm sure I will sleep well tonight. Part of my projects for today is painting my bedroom..have quite a lot done but need to put some things away before bedtime.

We are watching the Canadian Finals Rodeo on tv tonight from Edmonton. Just the bull riding left and I'll be off to bed.

It is very cold here but still no snow so we are thankful for that. The cowboy has been out doing some fence repairs and tomorrow we will round up the herd and sort off some old and open cows to go to market..if we have enough room hopefully some trouble makers at calving time will go

So we will take them to market at Weyburn on Tuesday. I am going to do a bit more Christmas shopping then too. If we have time I want to take our Christmas card picture too and then make the copies at Walmart Tuesday...

Well, best go for now and watch the bull riding..night all..thanks for dropping by and keep on sparkin'

emoticon Love Donna

Sweet Dreams emoticon emoticon
