Hi.when I went out to take the 11 pm check last night a cow had just calved and her calf was dead..it had died before it was born since the cord was detached and was decomposing already..it's always sad to lose them. This morning we went out and retrieved a twin..of course we had just turned them into the larger pasture!! Good thing hubby is a great roper..he roped a twin on foot then we lead/chased her up to the yard. It will take a bit of work to get her to take this twin..
Have you ever noticed when you're not in a great head space all sorts of things go wrong?? I have been putting off starting any plants for spring since it still so much like winter here.. Anyway I did put together my new little green house awhile ago..it's got 4 wire shelves and a plastic cover that zippers closed. Anyway today I decided to start a few plants..it's about 4 to 6 weeks before I put out plants..not before June 1 here..so I put some soil in cut down milk cartons and planted one to tomatoes, one to peppers , one to cauliflower and one to cabbage. I set these on one of those plant trays and went to set it on the top shelf on my new green house..the shelf flipped and all four dumped upside down and spilled through 3 wire shelves and on to the family room rug :( What a gigantic mess..I wonder if they will just sprout on the floor??
On to my 3 mini goals...
nutrition..ate within calorie limits, had a healthy breakfast, had lots of veggies today and fruit.
active living..getting the twin in the yard..quite a work out..
self care...well starting plants was supposed to be nice to me..not so much..I did watch curling and Canada won the gold!!! Yeah Canada!! I talked to some family and friends to today to help me with my stress...had some laughs :)
Hope your weekend has been a good one..thanks for stopping by my blog..keep on Sparkin'
