Hi..did my title get your attention? Well this is today's story..hubby and I are out doing chores and checking through the cow/calf pairs during today's intense snow fall!! Hubby says "You look sexy with the snow on your eyelashes" I say "Thank you" he says "I was talking to the cow"...lol :)
Well..that's what it's like around here down on the farm lol
Like I said we are having another day of snow..we have about another 10" and now the wind is up so it's another blizzard....
We did lots and lots of chores..took twine off bales, shovelled snow out of the calf pen again, helped hubby hang up a huge tarp to make the shed drier...forked straw into sheds, did barn chores..had more calves..we had 4 in one hour this afternoon...it's almost time for me to head out for another check..they will have to be checked lots tonight...every couple of hours...this looong winter is getting us all down...spring..please come soon!!
Today is St Patrick's Day..hope you had some Irish fun today...I started today by asking hubby if he wanted me to make green cream of wheat cereal for breakfast? He didn't want it green so that's what we had for breakfast..not green tho...lunch was our usual Sunday lunch..eggs on toast (not green eggs and ham lol) dessert was knock off lower calorie shamrock shakes and green shamrock cookies...supper was oven boiled beef, cabbage, carrots, onions and carrots with some mint chocolate chip ice cream :)
For today's new breakfast recipe I found a good one for flax blueberry muffins which I hope to make tomorrow if I have any free time....and I'll substitute saskatoon berries..since I have some of those in the deepfreeze.
I got lots and lots of exercise in today with all the chores..my ankles really ache tonight so I have my feet up on the couch just watching tv..Edmonton already won the hockey game, hubby is having a nap and I'm ready to grab some green beer after I blog and then check the herd...
Thanks for dropping by and for all your comments and encouragement! Keep on Sparkin'
Grow in the direction of your DREAMS
Happy St.Patrick's Day!! I'm off to send a few spark goodies....
