Been so busy I missed yesterday's blog!!

Wednesday, April 18, 2012 missed blogging was a busy day..did lots of housework catchup..when I spend so much time outside the house really suffers...hubby went to town for the afternoon so I was on cow check call..and of course a cow was calving..she didn't progress until hubby came home so she calved in the evening unassisted :)

I really wished I brought my camera along while I quadded the herd last night as it was soo calm and the herd was reflected into the slough..jsut gorgeous!!

I got a couple new magazines in the mail yesterday and haven't even had a chance to read them yet!!

Today we were off early to Weyburn..quite cool and cloudy and rainy which was turning to more snow up by Weyburn...hubby had some pasture stuff to do..even tho no one knows when the pastures will close (sometime between next year and 6 years..) so it's business as usual and it was time to upgrade the computers and while hubby did up some early chores I took his computer all apart. The laptop, docking station, monitor,and printer were all replaced. Now we have a new printer that's a fax machine and scanner too...They seem to be going wild and spending their money before the pastures close..of course it will all have to go back and be disposed of when they do close..what a waste :( In the past week we've gotten the newer tractor, brand new quad, computer etc and next is going to be a newer truck....

While I was in Weyburn we did some shopping, too (we had a neighbor checking on our cows) I bought a few things for the bridal shower in May from the $ store. I also got a big set of glasses from Walmart for a shower gift. We got some had been quite awhile since I stocked up and spent a bit over $100 but got lots of freggies :) Bananas, apples, cantaloupe, spinach, peppers, sweet potatoes, asparagus, mushrooms and half price strawberries, half price sugar snap peas and half price to find out how to prepare eggplant...any one have some good recipes? Well that should keep me in freggies for quite awhile!

Lunch was at A & W and I had a grilled chicken breast on a whole wheat bun with lettuce and tomato and a coffee...we grabbed KFC for supper and I had one breast with no skin with my spinach, strawberry, mushroom and almond salad with a vinegrette dressing..very good!!

When we got home we hooked up the new computer..then started on chores.. hubby has to be gone all day tomorrow so he fed for tomorrow tonight..he has to be at another pasture all day to help semen test 80 bulls..I'm in charge of the herd again... While he fed I quadded the pairs and forked hay for our small herd of 5 bulls...

The couch is feeling mighty fine I watched a bit of hockey and am catching up on spark and other internet stuff...

Tomorrow while I hold down the fort I have to remember to bake a Birthday cake for my's her Birthday on Thursday and it's cake and party time..with her and my other best friend :) Fun times... sign off..thanks for dropping by and keep on Sparkin'

Love Donna emoticon emoticon

Here's some things I'd like to share..the first is from Sparker staciepete It was on her blog is 3 things that helped her lose weight..

1..If hunger is not the problem, then eating is not the solution.

2..A goal without a plan is a wish, make a plan.

3...Defeat is temporary. Giving up is permanent.

And of course a Happiness Quote....

Seek out the happiness in all of life`s crappiness.

    I was going through your blogs but I don't see anything about why they are going to close pastures. I don't know anything about how Canada does things but why would they want to close pastures that are producing cows & offspring. Seems like it's a money maker to me.
    Have you ever written about this earlier? I didn't go back to your first blogs, but I think I will sometime. I copied your friends losing weight items and titled it Donna's Words of Wisdom.

    Same thing here. When I work outside, nothing gets done inside. Oh well. There's always tomorrow :)

    Smile and Enjoy the Rest of Your Day!

    Such a fun blog: I'm going to think about happiness and crappiness all day! I had written down those three secrets too!

    How lovely to be expecting kittens! Such a better way of controlling mice than . . . . mouse traps!!

    I wish that you had taken your camera also. I always like the little insights into your life. I have a really good camera, but so far have not use it myself and have not had time to figure it all out and I do believe that my time is going to get shorter and shorter as time goes on.
    Take care of yourself and all the new babies
