Happy Canada Day weekend..everyone!!

Saturday, June 30, 2012

Hi..just a quick afternoon blog..I'm way behind in my blogging and also thanking everyone for their comments..I will get to you eventually and know how much I appreciate your support...

We've had a wild week I watered my plants, then out to the field to drive the tractor cultivating our summerfallow for the second pass..while hubby seeded a bit of swath grazng...I just got finished and left the outfit in the field and walked/ran home for my third day/ second week of my 5K training..must be helping as I lost 3 pounds this week :) woohoo!!

Then on my way home I saw a golden eagle.. in a pasture right beside me and then flew to a fence post and then circled over head..we do see quite a few eagles here..golden and bald but they always awe me..I wished I had my camera with me..don't usually bring it to the field..haha...

This has been a wild week...Tuesday was very hot..we went to the neighbors to help load some cattle to market, then I went on to a close town to get our truck's our second best truck, a 2004, ford one ton diesel supercab that we use for hauling bales and cattle, etc. I had a deer come out of the ditch on grid road and smash into the driver door...:( $4500 damage....then we were on to Weyburn to set up the appointment to get it fixed and so they could order the parts.....a huge storm was brewing and when we got home huge scary clouds were overhead and hubby saw a small funnel but it didn't touch down...just a few drops of rain..and it's getting crisp here..we could use a nice soaker.

Wednesday was hot and windy....too windy to do my walk/run that great as I couldn't breathe!! Then I checked the home herds with the quad and my sunglasses kept blowing off and my neck waddle was flapping in the wind..that hurts! The joys of being over 50..haha!!

Thursday was Grad at our local high school and 2 students had invited us..we took in the exercises and the social and made an early night of it...

Yesterday was another hot day and we worked in the community pasture..I rode the quad and checked herds while hubby worked on the cattle oilers and the fence....I got very tired and a bit I was bound for the couch for the rest of the day....really need to do some housework..yikes...

Now today I have not much energy left for anything else after the tractor hours and my run...

I've been enjoying the 5% challenge..go starfish!! and this first week has been track exercise minutes and water the second week is exercise minutes and tracking food..which is good since I need to get back to tracking...

Hard to believe it's the last day of June!!! We have done so much already..... summer is wonderful....time to do a June recap and July's goals....we are sticking around home for the July 1st Canada Day weekend..we do plan to go to Plentywood Montana on Wed for their 100th celebration and July 4th fireworks if they are still on due to the fire hazzard happening around here....

Well..I'm a bit rested up and have finished a big glass of water so I'm off on another project..maybe dishes..haha..

Thanks for dropping by ..have a great Canada Day tomorrow and keep on Sparkin'

Love Donna emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Happy Canadian Day and congratulations on your hard earned weight lose! It's been hot here too up in the 100*s this week next week is forecast to be high 90*s. Takes my breath away to be out in the hot sun very long. On July 4th our town has fireworks out at the collage football stadium but they also for the first year are selling fireworks on the edge of town. Good luck on your running training and take care, Lucinda
