Hi..we had a typically busy day but today we haven't had a calf yet our first missed day in March...
Hubby wanted to clear the road so he started after morning chores and just barely started and slid off the road and got stuck :( Took him until lunch to get unstuck..then after lunch we fed some bales and then we went in for coffee and cribbage and then we went together to get water from the community well....when we got home I went to town for mail and he finished up the chores. When I got home I helped with more chores and we had a few sick calves to deal with.
Then I went in the house and made supper while hubby finished chores...my meals for today were..breakfast..puffed wheat and milk/ lunch...more of my french onion soup and a burger and some steamed cabbage/ supper was asian orange glazed meatballs with rice and veggies..I have a bit of a story with the orange glazed meatballs...I was doing batch cooking and made a huge pan of oven baked meatballs and like usual I try to think of ways to make meals healthy..so with the dried bread crumbs I thought I's add more fiber with some metimucial knock off...the first batch of meatballs went into spaghetti and tomato sauce and I wondered why they tasted orangey...oh know it was orange flavored fiber supplement..lol..so then I came up with the idea to put an orange glaze on them and serve with rice...I have one pack left so will have to remember the orange glaze for them too......misadventures in cooking..lol
Well..I am still really tired..a bit from my cold and a bit from tooo much chores. I wanted to do some pampering myself this morning so I had a long bubble bath (and I think I lost 5 pounds..I shaved my legs lol) The pampering felt soo good and I gave myself a pedicure and then found a rich yummy lotion to smooth on all over..
..More pampering I bought a couple magazines to relax with tonight so I should go and do some reading..they will take me away from thoughts of cows and calves.
Thanks for dropping by and for all your comments and support..keep on Sparkin'
