Hi all..I'm here for a quick blog..I spent all day helping hubby haul bales. We got 8 loads in today, the best day yet this year!! and they were the furthest away ones, besides. We haul 11 big round bales on a trailer behind our truck. We've had so much other stuff going on we had been just averaging 5 loads a day. Hope we can still to it and get up to 10 or more loads a day since we still have 6 or 7 hundred bales to haul!!
I'm taking a much needed rest with my feet up, lap top on my lap and pot of tea beside me :) I went along every load but one..where the bales were close in a slough. During that trip I quadded the main herd and took pictures of the oil site before they come to develop it. The driller was in the yard before 7 a.m. and they were going to move the rig in today..just two problems..we don't have our money yet and the site needs about 4 days of cat work to make it level enough!!!
I want to thank everyone who stopped by for tea :) The pot's always on and I love the company :) I'm having another pot of raspberry thriller..yummy. On the package it says the ingredients are: hibiscus flowers, rose hips, orange peel, roasted chicory root, lemon balm leaves,cinnamon bark, raspberry leaves, natural flavors and citric acid. That's a lot of stuff in one little tea bag!! It's a herbal tea but I don't worry about caffeine keeping me up nights!!! I fall asleep the instant my head hits the pillow and sleep 7 to 8 hours every night. Even with all the coffee I drink (the tea is to make me healthier than coffee..but so far it's been as well as my usual coffee..hey it's a start!!) I've been known to drink coffee in the evening, after several pots all day and fall asleep with a cup in my hand!!! Too much fresh air and manual labor..the joys of farm life :)
Well I found out about the 5000 crunch challenge on Team Sask..it's for the whole team!!haha..it would help if I read the whole challenge and not just the e-mail!! I'm in for sure :)
Well I really should finish my tea and have a nice long bubble bath :)
On to more bales tomorrow...Keep on Sparkin'

Hi..my cousin's wife the health nurse phoned last night to see if I'd "volunteer" to help her at the last flu clinic in town. It was a half day so I got stuff done at home too. Hubby came for a flu shot then we all went out for lunch, I picked up a few groceries. When we got home Hubby had a load of hay delivered from work to unload so I rode my exercise bike for 30 minutes and went 6 miles. Then we hauled some loads of bales, then I did night chores and made supper..we had grilled chicken breasts, carrots, brussel sprouts and I had spinach salad and hubby had potatoes.
I had lots of tea..in a cup and on spark with friends :)
November's goals are going fine..I like the new charting on the fridge to keep track of what I need to be doing!
I'm joining up to Team Sask's 5000 crunches challenge..just have to find out if that means a day, or a month , a year or maybe a lifetime??? It would amp up my fitness!!! whatever!!
Well tomorrow we need to help a neighbor at 7 a.m. to help him sort cows from calves and load calves onto the semi for market. Then it's back to hauling bales. In the afternoon we have a meeting at 4 p.m. to sign papers for the oil well to be drilled on our land.
Well, I'm off to read some more blogs, and articles and do some surfin'.....
Keep on Sparkin' see ya tomorrow !!!
