105 calves...

Wednesday, April 11, 2012

Hi we just had one calf today..I helped with chores, opening gates and cutting twine..and I cut my hand opening a barbed wire gate :( ouch!!

Then we sorted and loaded 6 cows for hubby to take to he was gone most of the afternoon...I did some housework..dishes, beds..putting away Easter stuff...don't laugh but it was finally calm enough to take down the Christmas lights...I did some work in the garden, digging up some flower beds and started some more plants peppers are coming nicely and I started some herbs and flowers...I walked the little pasture where the cows to calve were several times..the cow that did calve waited til hubby got home...

Hubby was home just in time for supper..I had made a chinese stir fry with the leftover half of my pork chop from last Thursday and lots of veggies...onions, celery, mushrooms, cauliflower, carrots and cabbage..all served over some heated up frozen rice..a nice quick meal..

Then we did some more chores after supper and I did a little bit of tv watching while I checked e-mails, facebook and Pinterest...entered my food and tracked on the 5% spring challenge...

Tomorrow hubby has a video conference call at the office in Weyburn..he's really not on staff until next Monday but this meeting is mandatory for all the pasture managers...I imagine I'll be staying home and checking cows to calve...

It was a beautiful day today..sunny and calm..rain is in the forecast for later in the week so I better enjoy this nice weather while it lasts...

I feel very tired tonight..and I even slept in this morning until 9!!! This flu has got me dragging....2 more hours til the midnight check..hubby's already asleep in his chair and I'm about to doze off on the couch...

Best quit typing before I fall asleep..thanks for dropping by and keep on Sparkin'

    Well it seems like a lot to me. And I know how much hard work you've put into it.
    It's good that you can fit in some of the other things you enjoy doing
    Get plenty of sleep and hopefully you will feel much better soon.
