A calmer day.....

Friday, March 22, 2013 was less hectic...only one calf so far :) which gave us a chance to catch up with tagging calves and giving them vitamin shots...the wind quit blowing, and it warmed up a bit..still not above freezing and it snowed all day...

We made a sad discovery today..they little calf that was the frozen icicle yesterday had a bum hole :( yikes....

I had lots of dishes to catch up with today too..and I did them while hubby dug out bales with his tractor..Then I did night chores alone..while hubby fed bales. Luckily I had only 5 cow/calf pairs in the barn to feed and water..and the little calf I'm still bottle feeding...

The snow is getting deeper and deeper and I can't walk across the yard without falling..a combination of tiredness, snow and uncoorindination..haha...

Today's meals were cream of wheat porridge for breakfast/ the last of beef and barley soup and a salmon fillet (hubby had fish n chips/ supper was homemade cheeseburger pizza with extra onions and mushrooms, and floats..mine was grape..hubby had orange..

We watched the end of the Calgary hockey game..but we missed most of it as we didn;t get in for supper until 7 pm...

Now I'm relaxing on the couch with my computer..hubby just came in from a cow check and said a first time heifer is calving..we'll give her some more time before we help her...

He loves to channel surf so I don't think I'll see too much of the next hockey game unless he falls asleep on the couch..haha

Today while I was reading e-mails I found one that was about burn really caught my many helpful ideas..want to revisit it and take some notes... more on that later....

On the 5% challenge today is the last day for the breakfast/recipe challenge.. today's recipe I found was for low sodium homemade breakfast sausage..just what I was looking for as when we bought the 1/2 pork from the farmer I asked for the ground pork and since he doesn't make sausages I will make my own sausage was looking for some ideas..Tomorrow is weigh in day and next week's challenge is to track food and saty in calorie ranges..I need to do that!! I'm afraid my weigh in won't be great :( Way too busy to keep better track of the calories and way too hungry from non stop chores to lose weight :( Will have to concentrate on better choices when things slow down more and make the best of the last half of the challenge!!

I want to thank all you sparkers for dropping by and commenting and encouraging me on my blog and page!! Your support has been overwhelming!! Thanks again for dropping by and keep on Sparkin'

    You're right - March absolutely flew by. You're doing great to keep up with the challenge with everything else you've been doing. Good luck on the weigh-in.

    we will all do better with some warmth . you had my favorite breakfast. Years ago we wnt on a cruise , we went to the breakfast buffet a thousand items . and I yell out oh my God they have cream of wheat. everyone laughed I was happy!!! I also love salmon, I love you idea of making your own sausage patties. Thsi year I think I reasearch a farm in my area where we can get a whole cow or pig. and I do plan on going to a famers market more as well as growing more produce in our garden . no way as hard as a job as yours but still a start to be more self effecient and healthier. you are doing awesome thanks for all the great ideas and insiration
