Yesterday was a quick trip to the city to get some supplies for hubby..he phoned all the places to make sure they had what he needed and I was frustrated at two of the places ..when I got there they didn't have the stuff!! Canadian Tire had 2 chain saws on sale in their computer but the kid couldn't find it!! Most of the time we shop there we are very unsatisfied!! Was afraid hubby would have a melt down but he actually just joked about how much money I saved..go figure!! Usually he's a grumpy bear during calving and lack of sleep!! I did get most of the stuff he needed!! And a few things for me..
..I found these cool lime green cleaning cloths (enviro friendly) and some new window cleaner..not so enviro friendly but it sure cleans good!! I went around today washing all the mirrors and windows, inside and out and then appliances..
I think I need help..
I got home at 5 to 6 last night so supper was still beef roast, since I put that on before I left, but for sides I had instant mashed potatoes, stir fried cabbage and micro mixed veggies..I made the key lime pie before I left..graham crust, lime jello with 1/2 the water, 1/2 package of low fat cream cheese and some cool whip and grated lime peel...when I got home I put some cool whip on top and grated some more lime peel..yum yum..hope you all enjoyed St Patrick's Day..I also had a lime beer for bed time snack..
Today after chores we went to town for lunch..I had a grilled chicken breast on a bun with a tossed salad and coffee..I also dropped off the sandwiches for the funeral lunch, we got mail, the car tire, some cash out of the ATM, took plastic to the recycling and got drinking water on the way home..we never go to town for just one thing..gotta think green!!!
This afternoon and tonight we worked on the corrals and feed some more bales, tagged some calves...moved a big panel hubby made from the shop to the coarrals, foound a cow that had a dead calf..she's still uncomfortable so maybe she's having twins, otherwise we'll probably put one twin on her..deaths are inevitable but we do hate to loose a calf :(
Supper was fish sticks, sweet potato and green beans and the rest of the pie...
We did get lots of lots of mail and I got 3 magazines in the mail..after I blog and track I'll be reading until my turn for the night check..
Well, thanks for stopping by for a chat...off to make green tea..Keep on sparkin'

Hi..it's been a busy day with lots of chores..and more calves...We are up to 19 now..just had another one tonight..for those who asked we have 140 cows to calve although the first one had a set of dead twins and hubby will be selling 7 or 8 late or open ones..so we have a long way to go..usually takes about 1 1/2 months for most of the calves to be born. we like them mostly finished by fencing season when we aren't in the yard much to check them..with our own fences and the community pasture fences we have around 100 miles of fence to fix each spring.. we start in late April...We used to calve in February and sell pure bred bulls but don't do that any more.
I had my Irish cabbage soup for lunch with a whole wheat toast with avocado on it..yumyum...Supper was beef stir fry with tons of veggies..onions, celery, carrots, green peppers, mushrooms and cabbage :) Had fruit and yogurt for snacks and dessert and broke down and ate another mint brownie..I have had the munchies today...probably from all the fresh air and chores!!
I dropped a gate on my foot today and it really hurts..see..I'm a klutz!! On a brighter note..it's starting to turn green!! haha!!! I gave our little calf several bottles today..2 this morning, 2 this afternoon and 2 this evening so at least he has a healthy appetite, hubby thinks he may be blind besides having a deformed nose..
Now for the March update...goals going great :)
Healthy green foods...lots of green fruits and veggies, made weekly green soup for lunches, had lots of green tea..having a cup right now :)
I like to have sugar free gum to help eat less and I found yummy key lime pie gum..wow it's good!! Can only buy it in the States so I see a Montana or North Dakota next month!!
Lots of exercise..yeah..chores , night checks, helping with he cows!!
Go green..reduce.reuse.recycle...been doing my garbage sorting and have cut down my kitchen trash 2 one little bag every 2 weeks, rest is recycled, paper in stove, recycling to town..it's fun to be green...always looking for ways to be greener!!!
