We even had a small flurry of snow just before supper and snow is forecast for the weekend...
I spent the morning making an angel food cake for the Birthday party tomorrow and working on the farm books...
Then after lunch, helped with chores and helped get the pasture truck out of the snow bank..now that hubby's signed on may as well use the perks..so we went to town for mail and water with the company truck..
When we got home from town we tagged and turned out some pairs..it didn't go well and 2 calves wouldn't follow their momma's out so we put them in the barn for the night...
Now's time to veg on the couch and relax...
Meals were toast for breakfast/soup and beef sandwich with veggies for lunch/ supper pork chop, spinach salad with extra veggies...yum yum...
This will be a short blog as I'm really tired today...
Thanks for dropping by and for all your kind comments..keep on Sparkin'
Just watching Paula Deen on Jay Leno..soo funny..they were baking..and Jay Leno hade the icing sugar fly everywhere...
Well I'll keep typing and laughing as I go..
Today was sunny but I spent the morning cleaning house as hubby boss was coming out with some papers to sign...hubby works seasonal at the pasture and was debating whether or not to sign on this year due to some back pay issues...everyone was made to do a job review and then they were promoted to the next wage level and given 10 years of back pay. Even though hubby got the promotion they are telling him he's not eligible for the back pay.... So he wanted a yes or no answer regarding the back pay before he signed on..the gov't of course says it has to be reviewed and the union is involved and if he didn't sign on he wouldn't get it for sure (obviously) Needless to say things have been tense here...the lesson learned...don't work for the federal gov't unless you like being screwed...
Well, you know me..I found a quote to help me deal...The best way to fix a problem is to just quit caring..oh yeah..I'm there and then some...
Anyway..back to cleaning house and boss comes over and hubby signs on ..then we get even more company..the tire repair man arrives and puts a new tube in a back tractor tire and new chloride ..then came in for a quick visit...said he brought his own lunch and didn't want coffee..so chores were delayed..and we didn't start until mid afternoon..
After helping with chores I went to do the walk about and hubby went to get one more bale for in the barn and got the tractor stuck..so I had to pull him out with the other tractor..so that made supper late..
Meals were breakfast..cereal/ lunch .. spinach salad and lasagna/ supper beef roast and veggies and ww bread. Today's snack was a grapefruit.
I still have another hour until the midnight check..last night one of the last heifers calved so we put them into the barn as it still gets really cold out at night..can't wait until spring really arrives and takes away all the snow!! It was late when we went to bed and I got up early too so I'm quite tired tonight..
Best get up and walk around a bit before I fall asleep typing. I need to bake the birthday cake tomorrow for Friday's party. And start on the new farm books..always something to do here..never a dull moment..
Well time to go fill up my water glass...thanks for dropping by and for all your kind comments..keep on Sparkin;

Hi..we had a busy day today..after morning chores and a long relaxing bubble bath we were off to town with the farm books to the accountant and then out for lunch :)

Hubby surprised me with flowers and a thank you ..such a sweetie! I'll try and upload a picture at the end of the blog!!
Today the collar bone hardly hurts so I'm definitely on the mend :)
My meals for today were..breakfast..toast and grapefruit/ lunch Santa Fe chicken wrap and salad/ supper a smokie and veggies!! Had 7+ servings of freggies today for the 5% challenge..just lunch alone had lettuce, cucumbers, lettuce, onions and peppers!! yum yum!!
While in town we got the mail and I got 2 new magazines for later and relaxing :) The hockey game is on and I'm vegging on the couch..resting from my busy day!!

Hope you all had a nice bright and sunny day..here was very cloudy and cold with a bit of wind and a bit of new snow :( While I was out doing the walk about and checking pairs I heard a meadow lark..the poor thing..at least it was singing and made me feel way more cheerful!!
While spinning the spark points wheel I won goodie points so I'm off to give out some goodies :)

Hi..It snowed almost all day today and windy too :(
At least we didn't get anywhere near the amount of snow Montana and North Dakota got..an interstate was closed from Glendive to Fargo all day today....
We had the CFIA man here to do brain samples on 2 dead cows..then they pay $75 each for testing and disease control...
Helped with chores and bales and the bottom checking of the pairs..the calves all looked cold and wet :(
Had a few visits on the phone and computer chats and found lots of neat stuff on Pinterest..was researching habits as it's time to keep adding to my new healthy habits, and found some awesome ideas...
Meals today were breakfast grapefruit and cereal/ lunch was hot dog, sauerkraut, beets and carrot sticks and an apple/ supper was homemade spicy pork sausage patties, spinach salad, salsa and more carrot sticks and a tiny piece of coconut pie. I surpassed my 7 freggie maximum on the 5% challenge.
Made an appointment to bring the farm books to the accountant tomorrow (in Canada tax day is April 30) so I'm not completely at the last minute..lol!! So off to town tomorrow...
Still not doing too much extra and my collar bone is starting to mend...can kind of touch it without the shooting pain...
I did some more art work in my art journal..a bit of housework..a bit of tv..the hockey game....have about 1 1/2 hours until the midnight check and then off to bed...
April is getting to be a long month if we don't soon get some sunshine and some heat!!
Thanks for dropping by and for all your kind comments and encouragement..Keep on Sparkin'
