Another day of chores, chores and more chores...


Friday, March 15, 2013

Hi..today was spent like most..doing chores...checking the cattle, doing barn chores and helping feed and move cattle...

We took a few hours today to cut some fire wood for the weekend cold snap and storm forecast...

Hubby was able to make a quick trip to town for some supplies and mail and water. He bought me some milk and ice cream. The mail box was wedged right full!! I got several business letters and 3 magazines...hubby got lots of newspapers..we'll have lots to read for the weekend...

While he was gone ( a little more than an hour) I had 4 calves...we are around half done calving..

My meals for today were..dates and oatmeal for breakfast; lunch..the last of the soup and a cheese bun; supper was crock pot pork chops, veggies and some rhubarb crisp and ice cream (the rhubarb is from the freezer) I also made 5 loaves of bread, did 2 of the meditations to catch up, did my stretches and did a root dye touch up on my hair...

We went out after supper to finish chores and it is starting to snow and the wind is up too!! Now I'm just finishing watching a hockey game and relaxing...

Now that the game is over I should finish up this blog and do the last check before bed..it's almost 11 pm..hubby has been sleeping on the couch for awhile..he'll set the alarm and get up during the night...sepecially since it's cold and snowy out...

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

Love Donna emoticon

    I was feeling sorry for myself and grumbly about all the work I've done the last couple of days and what I have to do for the next couple, then I read your blog. I've got it easy! You're really amazing.

    I don't know how you do it Donna, but you do. I think I would freak out if I had to calve on my own, let alone 4. My hubby brought home ice cream last night too! Rhurbard crisp sounds great, I haven't had that since I was a kid.

    So a lovely day really, you must appreciate it when hubby can get out, so you get sometime to yourself. My hubby works mostly from home and its great but I do appreciate some time to myself.

We have a post office box in the nearest town so it is lovely to go down and pick up the mail. Magazines are my favourite, you thought it was the bills right!!! :)

Have a lovely sleep and keep warm.
