More cattle to market today...


Tuesday, November 12, 2013

Hi..we had a quiet and cold holiday Monday..we were busy with the cattle..rounded up the herd and moved them home and sorted the old ones for market. We found out we were missing some so off we went back to the fields and brought in the 40 we had missed...then more sorting...

We watched quite a few programs on the history channel that were on for Remembrance Day. Didn't have a large enough span of time to get back painting in the bedroom but did some other jobs there..washed the sheets and matts, set up an electric fireplace we bought from our daughter when she moved, hung the newly washed curtains and a new wall hanging for over the bed.

I had a good night's sleep as usual..I do love to sleep lol!! emoticon

Today we sorted and loaded the cattle for market. I also took a few pictures for us to use in our Christmas cards. Then off to Weyburn and unloaded the cattle (the sale is tomorrow) Then we went out for lunch..waffles and strawberries..yum yum! Then I did a bit of shopping. Had quite a disappointing day..first when I went to exchange the little pjs they didn't have the same style..I wanted the littlests 2 to have matching pjs....

...then off to Walmart for the pictures....they have 3 picture machines and the instant machine was busy all afternoon and the other two were one hour only (what I wanted) but the one hour service wasn't available since they had run out of paper. They were telling people to do their photos and come back later in the week.... groan since it's more than a one hour drive each way....

...then off to Tim Horton's to meet the in-laws for coffee and get the gift cards for my nieces and nephews...11 $5 gift cards..how hard can that be?? took forever and then it was all screwed up and the clerk couldn't get her manager on the phone and she cancelled it from my credit card..I hope!! so ..

...not the jammies I wanted, no pictures and no gift cards..booo...

I need to go to someplace else for Christmas shopping!! Very disappointing emoticon


Well off to bed ..tomorrow us a new day..thanks for dropping by and keep on Sparkin'

Love Donna emoticon

    sorry about the shopping experience perhaps you will have better luck with shopping on the internet , some people enjoy that next time try to call ahead and see what they have that way you don't waste a trip . I love to sleep to one of my favs things

    It's frustrating when things are so far away and you have trouble getting your organized errand list completed! I sympathize, although now we live in town we used to live an hour away from a mall or movie theatre, and it was a big deal to plan a trip in those days...you certainly learn to be more organized, make good lists and not forget anything!

    How frustrating! That seems to happen to me when I run errands.....crazy little things that prevent me from getting them done.

    Isn't it frustrating when you have it all planned and organized... and then something out of your control interferes.

We watched a lot of the programs on the History Channel on Nov. 11 also, and learned things we never knew.

    I understand what you mean about the 1 hour trip; some places just don't understand that it takes that long to get there and then back again. Last year I resorted to gift cards bought from the local post office which covered most of the major stores. Not sure what I will do this year
