Where has October gone??

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

Hi...we just got home from Assiniboia where we sold some of our calves today. We had taken them to market on Sunday..and we had snow and blowing snow but today was a beautiful day..Indian Summer :) hope it lasts for awhile!!

We are very happy with the prices and the weights, too.So that's more of the fall jobs done.

I've been spending the last few weeks chasing after cattle so yesterday I tried to catch up with housework and chase some dust bunnies instead!!

The 5% fall challenge is going fine..well I'm keeping up with the program and tracking the exercise minutes (cattle has made me get the max minutes) and I have been keeping up with the other parts of the challenge..this week is freggies, so I'm getting in my fruits and veggies..usually do so that's easy! The only problem is I haven't los much weight yet!! Gotta get cracking for November!! I don't want to let my team down!!

Tomorrow I'm going to a funeral and then on to Weyburn and do some banking and also it's time to do my once a month grocery shopping...so I've been doing my planning for November. It's almost time to do my October recap and blog my November goals...so been working on that too!

Well..better run..thanks for dropping by..keep on Sparkin'

Love Donna emoticon

Today I won 50 free goodie points on the bonus spin so I'm off to give out some pumpkins....

Have a very spooky Halloween emoticon

    So glad for you that the calf selling went great. I'm sure it's so good when all your hard work pays off. Hope your Indian summer last for awhile also. I know you have some harsh winters so hopefully the nice weather lasts.

Busy October and snow...

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

Hi..we woke up to snow this morning...at least it's moisture!! I still have lots of outside jobs but the snow will be a break for me :)

We've had a really busy and hectic couple of weeks..we had all the community pasture take outs last week..and so far this week we have hauled our cattle home from a far away pasture and helped a neighbor sort and load his calves for market :)

I've been too tired to blog...have been just logging on and doing the 5% challenge.
Where has October gone?

Will be back blogging regularly soon..I hope :)

Thanks for dropping by..keep on sparkin'
Love Donna :)

    Hey Donna

Hope all is well, snow here in BC too. Welcome drink of water for the grass but YIKES makes for terrible roads and terrible problems getting cattle home. I see JBS is now running XL - hope prices have held up for you.

Put your feet up with a good cup of tea and relax!!

Oct 9th joke of the day...

Wednesday, October 10, 2012

Hi..this is a "leftover" from yesterday (Canada's Thanksgiving was yesterday)

Two turkeys where talking..one asked..What are you thankful for? the other turkey says....Vegetarians...haha

Had a cold and busy day...finished with the round up we started yesterday..on quads, early in the morning..kinda cold..should have worn socks..haha

Did some laundry and catch up with phone calls while hubby and rider were in the pasture..then after lunch went to the the pasture with hubby and put out more salt and loaded up the oilers to move home..then we did another round up on quads and all the cattle that are at home are out on the fall grazing fields now before the ducks and geese eat it all!!

Looking forward to tomorrow when we are invited out for supper with our new friends who are moving to New Zealand on Saturday :(

Need to put the clean sheets on the bed and call it a night...thanks for dropping by and keep on Sparkin'

Love Donna emoticon

    I love hearing about your farm life. I worked on an organic vegetable farm before I moved here and loved it. Wished I could've learned a lot more. I know what you do with actual animals is quite different but I love the lifestyle. (Although we had chickens and turkey there. heheh).

    Sounds like a beautiful fall day in Canada. I bet fall is kind of short and the winter blasts come early that far north. We had a cool day today down here in nearly-Florida. I wore shorts all day anyway, but put on long pants for first time except for church or job interviews to run to grocery store this evening. Hubby says it will be warm again tomorrow--I wouldn't mind more cool weather though.

Happy Thanksgiving from Canada!!

Tuesday, October 09, 2012

Hi..it's been a very busy couple of days..and today is Canada's Thanksgiving so happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Canadians!!

We really had early Thanksgiving at daughter's last weekend but when I did my once a month shopping for October I had a coupon for a free turkey so I cooked it up today...daughter's was much better..I put mine in the oven this morning and went fencing with hubby and when I came home the house was filled with smoke. Yikes!! It wasn't too bad!! I'll have some leftover turkey for the next 2 busy weeks...community pasture round ups and take outs...

Yesterday we helped the neighbors again and they want to take us out for supper on Wednesday so I'm looking forward to that :) So yesterday was all day heavy lifting and today was working cattle at home and fencing...yikes..lots of fitness minutes :)

Thanks for dropping by and for all your comments..really tired and should go to bed!!

Love Donna emoticon


Today's joke of the day is from Maxine again...

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month so grab those pumpkins and go get a mammogram..

Happy Thanksgiving!!

    Wow Donna! I think you must be the fitness Queen of SparkPeople. You are always so very busy. But your busy is not a normal busy for people. Your daily busy is very hard work, everyday. I think that if I did that much work everyday. . I'd loose a lot of weight because I'd be too weak to lift up a fork.
So glad your enjoying your Thanksgiving especially with Smoked Turkey!
