Hi..the blizzard is over for now...

Tuesday, March 12, 2013 was calm and clear and cold!! we have another storm forescast for the weekend...will this winter never end??

I missed by friend's funeral..but she was in my thoughts and prayers all day. Hubby spent the whole day hooking up the snowblower and clearing snow off the road and in the stack yards... we had 3 calves today and one died after it was stepped on :( Always sad to see them die..and we also lose money then too :( We had a yearling with it's head stuck in the gate so that was a challenge to get it out but we did and all's fine with it now...

Helped with all the morning and evening chores, so got lots of exercise in today!! Did my stretching too..mostly while cooking supper as I realized I hadn't stretched yet by then..

Meals today were my date cake oatmeal (oatmeal, water and dates microwaved together..yum yum) lunch was more soup, supper was ginger beef, rice and corn.

I spent more time than usual in the house so got caught up with laundry, did lots of dishes, caught up on some journalling and visited on the phone with one of my best friends...

I had only done a half a month shopping trip since I was planning to go to granddaughter's skating carnival next weekend and pick up some fresh stuff in Regina on my way through..but now the carnival is cancelled I'll still have to pick up a few things..somewhere?

This week's challenge is stretching and has me thinking a lot about stretching... something that I like to do but never take the time to do it!! Well this is the week to be doing...that and there are more meanings to I like to stretch out my groceries and stretch my food dollars...I like losing weight so my clothes don't have to stretch soo much to fit around me..haha....need to remember to put some lotion on my stretch marks...well enough of that...

I think my tiredness is making me not make sense...

Thanks for dropping by and for your comments..keep on stretching and keep on Sparkin'

Love Donna emoticon

    emoticon So glad you had a better weather day. So sorry to hear about the little calf, I know the reason your raising them is because it is your choice of livelyhood. I hope you don't loose any more. It's too bad you couldn't make it to your friends funeral. Unfortunately we can't help what the weather does. Sounds like you ate very healthy today. Yay!

    Blah on the weather. We haven't had much snow this year, but a sprinkling a time or two here in Western North Carolina, at least in my area of it. Sorry about the calf and hope you don't lose anymore. Take care and happy stretching.
