First I just realized I have blogged every day in April so far..yeah me!!
Our crazy day started with heading to town to get our tractor that has been in the repair shop for 17 months!! and it was finally finished...so I went along to drive the truck home, while hubby drove the tractor home..but it didn't make it home .. something else broke down :(
Before that hubby wanted to take the older truck in since the tractor needed new batteries and the old ones were coming home with me..well that truck didn't start :(
When we got home, I had to go back and find him on the road broke down and he had phoned...we had a quick late lunch of leftovers..he did chores and I drove to a different town to get new batteries for our other truck...got home, got batteries installed, went to hook up the trailer to haul broken tractor home and trailer and truck get stuck..out comes another tractor to pull out truck..oh what a circus!! Then we got the tractor hauled home...
In the meantime the pasture truck we took to Assiniboia for repairs..apparently has nothing wrong with it says the service manager..except it over revs for no reason and dies on the road :(
Well..it's been quite a day...
..at least it was SUNNY!! lol
Thanks for dropping by and for your kind comments! Keep on Sparkin'
Hi.. we got everything done today that we wanted to so that's a first!! The day started out with a heifer calving, a 9 am conference call for hubby, chores and more chores, then sort and load the cattle..then I drove the pasture truck to Assiniboia for the 1 pm appointment and hubby drove the cattle...
When we met up we went out for lunch at a buffet..it was delicious!! So much fresh veggies in the salad bar and fresh fruit in the dessert bar and small samples of the other yummy stuff :) Then a bit of shopping..I found the cutest metal horse planter that I got hubby to buy me for Mother's Day :)
When we got home we did more chores...then watched some tv..my sister told me Duck Dynasty is really funny so we thought we'd watch it... I must be too much of a redneck as I didn't find it very funny..oh well..back to hockey...
I didn't see any meteors last night..I think the almost full moon was too bright for the other stars to show up much..
Well gotta run..thanks for dropping by and for all your kind comments..Keep on Sparkin'
Hi..we had a bright sunshiny day today..woke up to record cold but had a bit of melting as the sun came out...this is the strangest spring..my sister heard that spring will be here Thursday between 8 and 9 pm so don't miss it. Daughter's friend said she hopes summer is on a Saturday this year..at least we can still joke about it.
We had 2 calves today so slowly but surely we are getting to the end...
I did some house stuff this morning..house cleaning, laundry, changed the sheets, etc and did some baking..have you tried the pineapple angel food cake? 2 ingridients..an angel food cake mix and a 20 oz can of crushed pineapple...mix the dry mix with the pineapple and bake in a 9 x 13 pan at 350 for 30 mins..quite yummy! I found another recipe on Pinterest for Mexican lasagna as I had some small tortillas to use up..even hubby liked it and he's not a fan of Mexican food. I made 2..one for supper and one for the freezer. Lunch was some homemade soup.
I helped with the chores this afternoon and checked the main herd with the quad and put our minerals and oats for the calves in their shelters.
Tomorrow we are off to Assiniboia with cattle and take the pasture truck to get worked on... and some shopping..
Well..I see my niece messaged me on facebook.so I should go for now..
Thanks for dropping by and for all your kind comments!! Keep on Sparkin'
SUNSHINE is my favorite accessory
Tonight there is a meteor shower so hope to see some at my midnight check
Hi..we thought of going on a little road trip to Williston, ND but changed our mind since it was so cold, if a cow calved the baby would get a bad chill..we'll wait for a warmer day...it's fun to have something to look forward too...
I did the morning walk about and then helped with bales... we watched a few movies today and then after supper watched the Oilers lose the hockey game..they are so out of the playoffs... just as well..once the outside warms up we'll have too much work to do to catch the games... branding, fencing, field work, seeding..on and on it goes!!
I had a nice phone visit with my oldest daughter..they still have snow up where she lives too :(
I decided to sit out the next 5% challenge..I've done quite a few and am ready for a break... I joined a new team ...for habits....My May theme will revolve around habits so it will all fit in...
Well..best get back to my relaxing on the couch...might do a bit more sparkin'.. I see I'm less than 20 points from crossing 58,ooo so I'll work on that :)
Hi..hubby needed to go to Weyburn today so after chores we headed up and the roads were awful!! We had a small skiff of snow this morning but we hadn't travelled very far and we encountered horrible road conditions..we slogged on and it was slow going..how many more days of this ??? Now tonight at home it is raining..at least that will burn away some of the snow...
I'm ready to take a break from the 5% challenges and work on some more challenges. I know the last weight is the hardest so I need to do some plateau busting...
You have all made the 8 week challenge fly by and I appreciate all your visits and comments! I only made it half way to my goal...but at least it is a positive result!
I've been working on my May theme and goals..May is a special month for me..my birthday month...I'll be 55 on the 18th and also my 3 years Sparkaversary is in May :) So many good things about May :)
I am loving my bright and cheery SUNSHINEY April...I think without this positive page I would be having chronic SAD ..this extra long winter and calving, etc has taken it's toll on me and I feel very old and tired :( Time to get back to fun and leave all this heaviness behind!! Too much physical and emotional stress!!
Well, thanks again for dropping by and keep on Sparkin'
SUNSHINE on my shoulders makes me happy (I love John Denver.. makes me think of when I was a teenager)
