Hi just relaxing with the Oiler/Coyote game..my Oilers aren't doing too great..tonight or this year :( Having a Bud light lime beer..then I'll switch to tea.
I wonder what kind would be good..I'm coming down with a wicked head cold and sinus pain so maybe some lemon and honey will do the trick.
We have the oil rig moved in to day..they'll raise the derrick tomorrow. We found some decent people to deal with ..finally!! Fred..the nasty man..has flown back to Calgary..I feel sorry for the city!! We refused to let them have access to water or fields to spread mud if Fred was still involved!! Water access has gone up from when we last did that from community pasture wells. From $1000 to $2500 the engineer told us it was the "Fred tax" haha. I think things will be much better now..hubby has even settled down some which eases some of my stress!!
It's been bitterly cold here..-25 tho a storm is brewing and it's warmed up tonight to about -15C. I spent quite a bit of time outside..we started by taking the truck and trailer to the community pasture corrals to retrieve a big panel of ours, then checked the herds, moved dusters/mineral feeders home, checked on the oil site a few times..took a fence apart and rolled up some barbed wire so the water hauler from the rig can get to the dugout by the yard. We don't want them to use the dugout that's close to the site since the cows are there drinking and if thee oil rig gets water from there cows could break the ice too easy if the water level drops. We don't want any drowned cows!! Then we hauled us some drinking water in case the big 2 or 3 day storm comes this way.
My tea is ready..I picked Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime..it has chamomile flowers, spearmint leaves, lemon grass etc..yum..I added some lemon juice and a squirt of honey for my cold. When I'm finished it I'm off to bed.
The game has 3 minutes left and the Oilers are losing ..4/0 :(
I didn't get any painting done today or rode my bike :(
The tea feels really good on my throat.
The tea box actually has quotes on it..
"We turn, not older with years, but newer every day" Emily Dickinson
"It's better to sleep on things beforehand than lie awake about them afterwards."
The Oilers lost 5/0...
Hope the Riders do better on Sunday!!!
Well I should get to bed..hope you're have a great week, thanks for stopping by for a cup of tea and a chat ( hope you don't catch my cold!!)
...Keep on Sparkin'
