Another blizzard.....


Tuesday, March 12, 2013

Hi..we are in the middle of another blizzard..will winter ever end here?

I spent today rescuing calves from the blizzard, pulling hubby out when he got the tractor stuck and forking more hay and straw...

I did make some time in the house to do some laundry, bake a batch of chocolate chip cookies, make a huge batch of meatballs...and freeze most for future meals. I had cereal and milk for breakfast, hamburger soup and buns for lunch, spagetti and metballs and veggies for supper...

The roads are all blocked again and my friend's funeral is tomorrow at 11 am so there is no way I can make it out..the storm won't even be over yet... :(
When the storm started late morning we had 4 calves in one hour..we have around 50 calves so far..getting close to half done...

I did take the time to do the stretching this morning and I wanted to do the online mediation but ran out of time..today was day one of the Deepak Chopra 21 day meditation challenge..so I guess I'll try to do day one and two tomorrow..

Well..time for a herd check to look for babies..hubby was out at 9 and it's almost 11:30..have a great and restful sleep...

Thanks for dropping by and keep on stretching and keep on Sparkin'

Love Donna emoticon

Your dream doesn't have an expiration date. Take a deep breath and try again.

    I'm also done with Winter. We had a storm on Friday, but it's 50 degrees here so most of the white crap should melt, there's still hope! Spring should be coming...
50 calves, WOW. You sound B-U-S-Y. Do you wear a pedometer or a fitbit, I'm curious as to what your daily step total is.....
I'm so sorry to hear about your friend and they you won't be able to make it to the funeral. Maybe you can have your own 'moment of silence' during the funeral?? [hugs]

    Sounds like it couldn't be more testing if it tried...winter that is. You must be very efficient doing all that farm work and getting meals ready and more for later.

Hope the next lot of calves arrive healthy.

Sorry you will miss the funeral, that must be hard.

Spring is on the way!!!
