Hi..today was our last day of beautiful weather..tomorrow is supposed to be cold and snowing again..we knew it couldn't be spring this early!! I brought in 2 loads of wood..about 50 logs each on the big calf sled..that's part of a big work out..Especially when some of it was through snow up past my knees and I was sinking in with each step. I also rode my bike for 30 minutes and did lots of housework..cleaned the porch, did some laundry for the weekend and got the spare bedrooms ready for company.
Besides my son coming home for the weekend and ski-dooing and coyote hunting, the 2 granddaughters are coming next week for their school break :) It will be a busy week since I'll be "babysitting" the cow herd for 2 days..Wednesday and Thursday..as well as the granddaughters since hubby has meetings in Moose Jaw.
We're not happy that the first cow that calved had an early dead calf and this morning she had another dead calf so she was actually having twins..the vet even checked for that, too??
Not a good way to start calving..we have about 140 cows and heifers (first time calvers) to calve this spring. They shouldn't start till the first part of March so I hope we don't get any more early ones. Every one that doesn't make it is a decrease in our income :(
I had more of my soup for lunch and a huge spinach salad and a bit of roast beef for supper. I made roast beef, roasted potatoes, gravy and cauliflower and cheese sauce for hubby..he had cheese cake and I had yogurt and frozen saskatoons..wasn't I good to avoid all those calories :)
I worked a bit on getting the porch ready to paint soon, crack filled, etc. I also sorted through some papers and magazines and found more to recycle. We squeezed in a cribbage game and I spent quite a lot of time on the phone..
Tomorrow I might do a recap of how February's goals are coming..all not too bad but the scale :(
I think I'll go make me a pot of tea..and watch the end of the Calgary/Dallas hockey game..then call it a night.
Thanks for stopping by my blog..I really appreciate the comments, etc..Keep on Sparkin;
LIVE WELL LOVE MUCH LAUGH OFTEN
