Day 6 of the challenge...

Thursday, February 28, 2013

Hi..Time to blog...today was another successful day..spark wise.not so good calving wise as we lost a calf today....that always makes me sad..it was the little black one I bottle fed yesterday...when they were turned out hubby said it looked like it had been kicked by a cow..and then died :(

I got in 120 fitness minutes today with chores and cattle and wood and rode my bike....drank up my water too (now I'm enjoying a light beer with the hockey game)

I had borscht again for lunch and pork chop and salad for supper..I made apple crisp so had a bit of that, too. I like to be back in the soup habit...I like to make a huge pot and then have a few meals during the week. I want to think up some soups for March..maybe to match where we are travelling too..like the borscht! The challenge is coming along good.

It's hard to believe tomorrow is March!! Will it come in like a lion or a lamb? We have a snow storm forecast for the weekend...

We've been playing cribbage a lot this winter..it's one of hubby's favorites but lately I have been winning more often than him!! Then we found out we didn't have all 52 cards...talk about not playing with a FULL DECK!! Haha!!

Tomorrows blog will have the February recap and my new March goals...time to start planning....

Better go for now...Edmonton is ahead of Dallas 2-0...go Oilers...Then Calgary play next....

Thanks for dropping by..keep on Sparkin'

    So sorry to hear about the little calf. It makes me sad hearing about him. I hope all the rest will be healthy for you. Sounds like regardless you still have your Spark. Keep doing so well! emoticon

Day 5 of the challenge....

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

Hi..almost time to call it a night and thought I should do a quick blog...

Had a day filled with cattle and cattle related stuff..bottle fed another calf..helped move some herds around....brought another new calf up to the barn, that makes 5 now..helped hubby roll a huge round bale into the barn...split more wood for the stove and carried it into the house..so we had a cozy fire again tonight..it looks very spring like outside today..too bad it can't last..it's usually not spring to stay in Saskatchewan until April or sometimes even May..and the long range forecast has snow into May this year...

I took some time to go to town for the mail..hubby needs all the pasture deposits in by tomorrow and we were missing a few..got most in mail today and 2 were dropped off at our farm today so now just missing one... I also took bags and bags of magazines to the recycling today and stopped at the community well for 3 5 gallon jugs of drinking water...which involved carrying them a distance to the truck (the well has lots of snow around it) lifting them into the back of a 1-ton truck..grunt..and then lifting them out at home and carrying them a fair ways to the house (we have lots of snow around the house, too)

Well that was my activity for the day..now on to the meals..had a bowl of borscht for lunch with a burger and steak and salad for supper again..I also made a rhubarb crisp today and had a bit of that with some ice cream for dessert. While I was gone to town I put a loaf of bread in the bread machine..my friend Wanda's crusty bran bread..it turned out yummy..and ready for afternoon coffee snack when I got back from town....

I've been drinking lots of water and am just finishing my 10th glass...off to log my food and then take the night cow check and off to bed...

..Thanks for dropping by..keep on Sparkin'

Love Donna emoticon

I can't believe tomorrow is the last day of February....hope the month has been just "LOVE"ly for you....

    Even after a busy day, you still cook delicious sounding meals. After reading about the food you make, I 'm always inspired to start cooking healthy food. Trouble is, I never seem to have the staples needed to make things. Maybe I need to go shopping more.

Day 4 of the Challenge...

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

Hi..I just typed most of this blog and it disappeared...hate it when that happens!! Today we had a sick calf so hubby gave her a shot and I bottle fed her a few times...we will work with her more tomorrow..we had another calf tonight so now we have 4..

Then we went to town and went out for lunch..I had wonton soup..yum yum, we bought some RRSPs and then did my OAMS for March..I had a $50 Co-op gift card so groceries only came to $80...Depending on what we decide to do for Easter I will have to grab a few more things..like a ham and some sweet potatoes...We don't know yet what we are doing for Easter..will be really in the middle of calving :).....

Then when we got home from town we had company, a neighbor with some community pasture business and he stayed for several hours...so we had a late supper..we had steak and I had a lettuce salad...yum yum...

I didn't quite get as much exercise as I had hoped..only 60 minutes but I did get 10 glasses of water...

I see our plane..the Starfish team..has landed in Moscow..great job team!! woohoo

Thanks for dropping by and for all your kind comments..keep on Sparkin'

Love Donna emoticon

I won 50 spark goodie points..so I'm off to give out some goodies...have a great night...hope you have all found your magic.....

    Wow! You had a very busy day, (probably didn't need company till late) but what can you do? You & your hubby are such good neighbors, I'm sure everyone wants to spend time with you. Sounds like everything is going great. Hope the calf is doing well.

    I've had my blogs disappearing too, it seems to be if I try to go out and come back to check something and it doesn't save. I don't ususally say a lot but this was a long one and so had to 'improvise the content'

Hope the calf is well ...

What a lovely day you had.

    How many times have you tried the challenge? This is my 3rd time. I love them. I'm a Shooting Star. Here's to us and our weight loss 5%. Seems like the calving will keep you busy so you won't be eating out of boredom.
