Got lots accomplished today..

Monday, June 04, 2012

Hi..the neighbor that we hired to help seed is all finished and hubby seeded the last field and I;ve been out harrow/packing so farming is coming along great.

We put out salt and minerals to the herds first thing this morning and checked cows..then on to field work...I also watered all my bedding plants and noticed lots of my garden is up :) I also did lots of grass mowing :) Yard is starting to look good :) I did night chores so hubby could finish the seeding and then we had a late supper.

I started catching up with some laundry today too and thinking about what to pack for our trip....I actually figured out how to download all the pictures off my camera card and burn them on a DVD,,woo hoo!! I'd love to know how to do more with the computer!!At least now I have an empty card to take pictures in Vegas!!

Talked to my sister on the phone for awhile, too and did some catching up :)

Well that pretty well sums up today....glad we were able to get so much done!!
Thanks for dropping by and keep on Sparkin'

Love Donna emoticon

Hi Friends...

Sunday, June 03, 2012

I did lots of yard work today but first I helped hubby turn out the last 4 bulls.... then the neighbor came and started seeding..hubby finished the first summerfallow field. I took the quad and checked through one field for twine.

I cleaned up lots of the yard..watered the garden..mowed grass...set up the patio furniture...transplanted some more flowers...

Then I brought coffee and snacks to the field..moved equipment around..did night chores..made a late supper...had a relaxing bubble bath :)


Yesterday was a busy day..hubby and the rider went to another community pasture all day to round up and sort and move around bulls..then a semi came and hauled the pasture bulls down here and then we sorted and hauled or chased them where they needed to go..supper was very late...

Yesterday I also took my neighbor and one of her friends to a salad lunch at a church at a close town..we had a good time..and saw lots of people that we knew... but when we went to leave someone had run into my car :( not too much damage! and they left a note....then we went to a greenhouse for some more plants. After I took my neighbor home I went to get drinking water and mail...

It was a vey long day..and today was too..but we got lots done.... Things are all falling into place to be ready to leave next Sunday..One week!! Woohoo ..Vegas here we come!!

Well thanks for dropping by..keep on Sparkin'

Love Donna!

    Another busy day. Glad there wasn't too much damage to your car and that the person left a note.

Love your quote about June from Lucy Maude Montgomery. She lived for many years at Leaskdale, just north of where I live, when her husband was pastor at the church there. There is a very active LMM Society here, and the manse has been turned into a museum. The church where he preached has been replaced by a new, much larger one, and the original one is used for concerts, arts exhibitions, etc.

Recap of May's Goals...

Thursday, May 31, 2012

Hi...it's time to do the May goal recap...May's theme has been FUN (my theme for May) but busy busy busy...

emoticon
-refresh page..done :)

-track food..only 8 days ..not so good :(

-track exercise..aim for 1000+....2940 mins..lots of exercise!!

-track points...aim for 1000+...1903 good :)

-eat spring foods..yes..lots of veggies and fruit!!

-drink lots of water..yes :)

-blog daily...22 days..fair!!

-finish last 2 weeks of the 5% challenge..great..lost 8 pounds ..almost the 5% :)

-spring boot camp challenge..quit since the videos won't down load :(

-gardening...have done lots and lots of yard work and gardening..that's where quite a few of the exercise came from...planted my garden but it's not up yet, worked on the flower beds, put out bedding plants and mowed the grass lots!!

So to sum up the month..it has been fun but I've just done fair on my goals and have been slacking off with healthy eating and tracking food and the scale is not doing what it should.......

Very tired tonight so I'll add June's goals tomorrow...hauled several loads of rotted manure to my garden and flower beds..then mowed grass for several hours and then quadded the herd in the west side of the community pasture... hubby fenced, then to town for seed barley..getting in a panic for the neighbor to do the spraying and seeding that he has hired..would love to have it done before we leave for Vegas on June 10..June 11 is our 35th Anniversary..we will be gone for 5 days..woohoo..but the holiday will be hard for me to get back on track...

I have joined the summer 5% challenge and am looking forward to it..hope it starts after we get back from our trip...I feel bad that I'll break my log in streak but I'm not bringing my laptop along...time to start a new streak :)

June's theme is Friendship so my spark friends will play a big part in my month! I am so lucky to have so many great Spark friends and also all my friends everywhere so am looking forward to focusing on friends :)

Tomorrow I'm taking my closest friend and neighbor to a salad luncheon which she has said she's always wanted to attend...she'll be turning 88 in June so this is part of her gift :)

Well..time to have a quick soak in the tub for these aching muscles and off to bed, thanks for dropping by and keep on Sparkin'

I appreciate your friendship!
Love Donna! emoticon

    You really did well and made a lot of progress! You're accomplishing a lot in many ways - good for you! Writing down your goals and tracking your progress is the key to success. I really need to follow your lead on that. I'm looking forward to the 5% challenge too. I know you will have a great June.

Quick blog..

Wednesday, May 30, 2012

Hi..I'm using hubby's computer since mine is still shutting down when I try to use it...must be a virus...

Spent this morning checking home cows with the quad...this afternoon at Weyburn..shopping, errands, etc..tonight checked community pasture herd with hubby in truck..way too muddy to take anything else....

Hope to do some more gardening and yard work tomorrow if it stays nice... maybe mow some grass!! My poor garden has been in since May 17 and nothing is up yet..the moisture is there...just not the heat and sunshine :(

Our trip to Vegas is getting closer...son gave us an Anniversary card with US money in it...the in-laws today gave us a card with US money in it...all that will help make the trip more memorable!! We don't gamble much but will visit a few buffets and have more than a few drinks :)

Well bedtime, everyone..thanks for dropping by and keep on Sparkin'

Love Donna!

Starting to work on May's recap and June's goals..where did May go to? It just flew by....

But I have been having lots of Fun!!

    Hi Donna - when do you go to Vegas? I've never been there, but DH loves it even though he doesn't gamble. He loves the whole excitement of the place, says it's almost like Disneyland. Maybe I'll get there someday.

    Hope you can get your computer fixed. I think Microsoft has a free virus protection now called Microsoft Security Essentials you might want to check in to. I hope you have a wonderful anniversary in Vegas!

    Hi Donna,
I haven't been online much lately. I've been so busy helping with house projects, I haven't had time to take a break although I have been logging my meals & exercise & spinning the wheel daily.
We put in a garden a few weeks ago and it's starting to come up now. I need to take a picture of it along with the other things.
To bad about your computer, I hate when a virus hits mine, that reminds me, I need to back up everything just in case.
So happy for you that your vacation to Vegas is coming up soon. I sure wish we lived closer to there so I could pop over and see you.
Hope you get some warmer weather soon!
