Too Windy Again Today....

Friday, April 13, 2012

Hi..another day of wind in paradise...

The wind plays me out so everything I have to do outside is twice as hard!! Chores this morning with hay down my back, more tagging this afternoon with straw down my least the calf I bottle fed today was inside the barn.... windy we both made a quick trip to town for mail and groceries, etc...should not bring hubby along with the grocery shopping..I've been trying to spend less and really use up what I have on hand for groceries and just buy basics but he found ice cream on sale and a huge cheese cake for $12.99!! I bought milk, pears, bananas and toilet paper...even with him along didn't spend too much...then we stopped at the library and picked up some new reading material...oh, and bought 2 magazines from the drugstore...lots of visiting along the way...

Hubby was looking in the mail for a registered letter about his job..the meeting yesterday was about federal gov't budget cuts and the federal community pastures are all closing..probably not this year but all will be gone in 6 years and the letter will say when this one will close...

I was checking some of the plants I started and I remembered why I usually buy potting soil to start them...lots of green but not sure yet which are weeds and which are marigolds..

Caught up on some phone calls after supper and after I brought the herd in from the little pasture ..we have less than 30 to calve...2 more calves today..108 calves. One phone call was a follow up to my friend's birthday party..the 3 of us... my 2 best friends and I all celebrate our birthdays in the spring..the March party was next friend's birthday is next week so I'm bringing the cake... my birthday is in May.....the other phone call was about the bridal shower I'm helping put on....

...Started watching the hockey and reading my new magazines and I fell asleep on the couch for a couple's almost time to go out for the midnight check.

My meals today were my basic oatmeal and dates for breakfast (or date cake I like to call it) lunch was a meal replacement shake and frozen strawberries.... had a pear for a snack..then supper was pork chops, the last of the fresh asparagus, beets, potatoes and a small bowl of apple crisp and a wee bit of ice cream..had lots of water today..the wind parches lips are so dry and chapped from the wind..I found this new lip treatment that has polysporin in it and it works great..I put lots on before I went outside and came in looking like I had a dirt moustache or maybe ate a chocolate ice cream cone..haha...

Well sorry if this blog doesn't make much sense since I'm still 1/2 asleep..thanks for dropping by and for all your comments and support..Keep on Sparkin'

Love Donna emoticon emoticon

Read this on the internet this morning and thought it fit in from hubby's meeting...

Due to recent budget cuts the light at the end of the tunnel has been turned off...

    Busy day again! I sure hope when the letter comes it has better news.
    Your hubby sounds like mine at the grocery store, always looking for the things that we shouldn't have. I'll allow myself some ice cream but the cheesecake would be a tough temptation.

    Love the quote! Hope that lip fix works well, I know the winds out there can be brutal. emoticon

    I know what you mean about the wind, it's like "enough already". Have a good weekend.

    Oh my gosh, do I love that quote, it is so right, I'm putting that baby on my facebook page today! The wind can stop anytime now and perhaps a little sunshine might happen. Have a great day! emoticon

    That lip treatment sounds just the ticket for windy days especially! You are doing great with your eating plan . . .
