Missed blogging for a few days...

Tuesday, May 29, 2012

Hi..had a great time Friday at the friend get together..2 of my classmates for lunch for a late birthday celebration....good food..good times..lots of laughs.. lots of fun :)

Saturday we checked all the new herds at home and brought them salt and minerals....cold, cold, cold and even a bit of snow :( the wedding was moved inside instead of at the corrals as planned...son came down for the wedding..it was a friend's son's wedding..we headed in to the wedding but of course we had a heifer calving..4 cows left to calve and one has to be calving during the wedding.. so we all went in and attended the wedding and the beef on a bun supper and then ran home (20 miles) to check on her..all was fine and another new baby.. then we returned to the wedding in time for the dance (hubby told people there that we went home to have sex..yeah he's a real joker...) Then we dance lots and I drank too much and we got home around 1 am.

Sunday was a much needed day of rest..a rainy one at that...

Today was still rainy so we didn't get too much done..I planted a few bedding plants out and went with hubby to check the west community pasture cattle and the truck hit something underneath and wrecked a plate under it so we spent the rest of the afternoon trying to get it off and then trying to straighten it.

I also did some catching up on the computer..mine has been acting up..shutting down by itself and often..must be a virus?? any suggestions?? So writing a blog was out of the question..I used hubby's work computer for awhile but now I'm trying this on mine..here's hoping it doesn't shut down in the middle...

We watched the first of the 3 part show on the History channel called Hatfield's and McCoy's..part one was good...

Well when it ever dries up here we'll have lots and lots of stuff to get done before we leave for Vegas on June 10....I'm really getting excited for the trip..it'll be so fun!!

All this hectic stuff has made me go off track in the eating department and a couple pounds have crept back on...need to get back on track..at least with all the cattle work..running around...and dancing..the exercise has been constant...

Well best get ready for bed and thanks for dropping by..keep on Sparkin'

Love Donna emoticon

Cattle are all sorted and in their pastures..

Thursday, May 24, 2012

Hi..today is rainy..cold..windy and I spent most of today outside in it :( But we did get the cattle all sorted..our friends came over and helped all afternoon.. it's so great to have friends that we can help and they can help us too..and make it fun..well it still was a day from hell but at least it wasn't sweltering hot...

Tomorrow I'm off to a late birthday lunch with 2 classmates (high school was a million years ago but we still keep in touch ) Looking forward to it..it will be fun!!

I didn't put any bedding plants out and I'm glad as it may freeze and snow tonight..yikes...usually it's not safe until after June 1st but I have had plants freeze later than that....oh to live in the cold, cold north..haha..July is the only month that Saskatchewan hasn't had frost (that I can recall) brrrr...

Well it's been a very long day and I'm ready for bed..thanks for dropping by and keep on Sparkin'

Love Donna..

Read this FUN thing on pinterest today...

If at first you don't succeed, try doing it the way your wife told you...haha

  Great feeling to have those cattle out on pasture. It gives you more freedom to do other things for a change. There's always work to be done but at least it changes with the seasons. No plants planted outside here either. It's just too cold. We've had several days of rainy, cold weather here too. Manitoba is not too far behind Saskatchewan in that department.

    That would be the best way, for sure.

And I'm wondering the sorting principles for cattle: boy/girl? colour? age?

I did not plant any annuals last weekend but I'm thinking it's probably safe now . . . will try to get at it tomorrow!!

Another calf yesterday..4 left to calve....

Thursday, May 24, 2012

Hi..yesterday was filled with errands...hubby took cattle into the pasture and I stayed home since a cow was calving..after the calf was born I started on errands. Got drinking water...to town for mail..cattle cheque was in so on to another town for grain truck license, greenhouse for bedding plants..on to Weyburn for banking, bill paying, shopping (more bedding plants) pick up tractor parts from bus depot, on to in-laws for coffee and some raspberry plants and a lily...on to the vet for some tick stuff for our dog (feel like putting some on me...yikes) the last stop was groceries and a huge storm hit with lightening and pouring rain....

Today we checked the cattle in pasture...did some fencing..checked our cattle.. made up the lists for cattle sorting..tomorrow's job (usually the day from hell) then we went over to a neighbors and helped them sort and haul 5 loads of cattle to the pasture... another late supper..watched the last of the hockey game.. now just catching up on spark..

Cutting this short so I can get to bed..really tired today...

Thanks for dropping by..keep on Sparkin'

Love Donna

Enjoying the long weekend..

Tuesday, May 22, 2012

Hi..I was so pooped yesterday I didn't blog..

..Yesterday was spent first at an auction sale for about an hour, then fencing in the community pasture until around 6:30 pm...then time to get home for a late supper and pick all the woodticks off me..yikes!! Then off to bed early...

...Today we gave the herd bulls some shots and then vaccinated some of the cows that are left behind the barn..then turned some out and 2 of the ones with twins took off with only one twin each and we had to get them back in and paired up... hubby changed oil in one of the quads..I mowed lots of grass and used the grass catcher and gave the clippings to the animals around the yard...we also did some work on the corrals after the bulls rearranged some of the furniture...

..Hubby went over to the pasture again late afternoon and did a bit more fencing. I did more grass mowing, quadded the herds, did night chores, laundry, dishes, got a late supper ready and made lunch for hubby tomorrow. It's the first pasture take in so hubby will go with the rider, lunch and take in 6 herds on the first side..

..I have a couple trips planned..need to get drinking water and also get our grain truck licensed so hubby can go for some seed grain on Wednesday...then maybe to town for mail or Weyburn if our tractor parts are in on the bus..

..I did take time to have a bubble bath and watch some hockey tonight before hubby came home..

Well thanks for dropping by and keep on Sparkin'

Home from our road trip...

Sunday, May 20, 2012

Hi..we just got home from our road trip to Williston, ND...it was my joint Mother's Day and Birthday gift from hubby :)

I love to shop..a few of the highlights were 4 new patio chair cushions, new top to wear to wedding on the weekend (the couple I put on the shower for) new bathing suit for our trip to Las Vegas next month..in a size L..good bye XL woohoo!! also bought a white skort and a couple tank tops..some groceries, greeting cards, magazines..oh what a fun day!!

We grabbed a quick lunch at Plentywood, then spent the day at Williston and then had supper back at Plentywood..2 of our favorite places to eat in Williston were closed today...I found a very nostalgic treat for the way home..orange sherbet push ups..just 70 cals and soo yummy :)

I also grabbed some US money from the ATM for our Vegas trip..will need to pay cash for the taxi to the hotel when we get there etc.. It's hard to believe it's less than a month until our trip..it'll be soo fun!! Can't wait :)

Well it's been a long day..started with checking the herds and bringing in and treating a sick heifer...then gone on our trip...

Thanks for dropping by and for the belated birthday greetings..keep on Sparkin'

Love Donna emoticon
