I buzzed around like mad yesterday, the fitbit shows just how much lol, over 21 K steps for the day! After breakfast I did chores and then let Apache out to run while I shoveled out her pen, that took a while so she got lots of of exercise!... Read more
Was a little lax in blogging the last couple of days!

So, I am laying here glad that I accomplished all I wanted but wishing I wasn't so tired! I started Saturday by throwing down hay, well after breakfast anyway! Then chores and back to the house. I wanted to put the plastic on a couple o... Read more

I worked on the teddy bear sweater last night and realized I should have made the sleeves first. The instructions to this sweater are somewhat vague and full of mistakes. The first thing I realized is that the graph for the design is wrong, it... Read more

I went downstairs in the barn for morning chores and was greeted by an unwelcome sight, Juniper was at large in the cow area. Unfortunately that also gives her access to where I feed the bantam chickens and the rabbits in their cages. She ... Read more

I didn't get up very early yesterday, didn't go to sleep until about 2 am, ever wonder why you can't hit the bed and fall asleep like you did when you were a kid? Guess that time is lost now! I did manage to get all the things done on my l... Read more

I decided to go shopping today, more or less farm shopping! I had to pick up my lock set for my storm door at Home Depot, so off I went. I also needed some insulation for the barn, The back door is a split door, both horizontally and verti... Read more

Well we got 18" of snow all together, I really don't mind snow if there is no place I have to be, but it causes such havoc when you have to spend hours plowing and makes your trip to work take twice as long! My niece always used to love snow, a... Read more
Really bad trip home from work this morning!

We didn't get any amount of snow until about 3 am, then it snowed hard! I went out to my car at 6 am and brushed it off, there was about 4" of snow, then at 7 am there was another 4" or more. The ride home was quite perilous, visibility was do... Read more

I was, as usual, very tired after my first night, just don't get the sleep the first day, it is hard to sleep all night, then sleep in the afternoon too. We have had a couple of busy nights, plus we had to do training on the new coag mach... Read more
Guess it took more tweaking!

I went to do chores yesterday and Junipers waterer had loosened a little but not come undone, Lavender was still trying to stick her head under the waterer, and that bolt did not hold. Sigh, time to come up with a different plan. Juniper... Read more

So.....Guess who wracked her waterer again yesterday morning, after bolts, and pieces of metal behind it, it was hanging on bent bolts in the morning, about an inch out from the wall. All I can think of is that she is standing in it. The other... Read more

I never got to blog yesterday or Thursday, much too late and way too much stuff to do. I started Thursday doing the project I talked about on Wednesday. It of course took way longer then I anticipated as usual! The first order of my day... Read more
Work out yesterday!

Yesterday was clean out the barn day, I hate to open the barn for a few hours when it is bitter cold so I waited until it got a little warmer, besides it is not something I can do when I am working. I struggled with the darn wheelbarrow t... Read more
Slow kind of day

I got up late as usual the day after my sleep day at the end of my work schedule. Shouldn't have though, it was quite cold again and the barn was frozen up again and it was after 2 when I got everything done and everyone happy down there. I no... Read more
Exhausted tonight
Monday, January 04, 2016      4 comments

Must be because I had so much time off, but this work weekend made me exhausted, not that it was busy, just the opposite, very very quiet. I didn't draw any blood the last two nights and only one each night before that. I did get the elep... Read more
