Well, it's raining and blowing this morning and we're supposed to be in for some stormy weather today. You know what that means....more attention to indoor projects like laundry. That seems to be the only thing I do. If I didn't have laundry to do in a day I think I would be absolutely lost! Like not heading out to the barn to milk cows morning and night. Although I could get used to sleeping in...very quickly...not going over to the barn every evening would be very disorienting for me.
So, what makes your day normal? What do you do everyday that gives you routine in your life?
Yesterday was a busy day, Bobby and I ventured into town in JW's new truck. Yes, he finally earned enough money to pay for his truck and it's sitting in the driveway right now. I'll get a picture later...I know you just can't wait to see that gem!
As I said, we headed to town for a round of errands. While he didn't intend on doing as many as I had in mind, he didn't complain too much about sitting in the grocery store parking lot while I headed in "just for some coffee"....six bags later....I came out with just the necessities of life...you know, coffee, shampoo, ginger snaps, cereal, cheesecake, butter, flour, sugar, apple turnovers....I was hungry.
After stopping at the feed store, TSC and the orchard, we were home again. Then the vet came by to vaccinate some calves and pregnancy check some cows. The curious thing about this particular vet is that she is 8 months pregnant and is still standing behind a cow with her hand shoved up her......Wow and that belly doesn't even get in the way! It was when she came into the barn with the ultrasound machine strapped to her person. Oh my, was that a sight. I almost ran in and got my camera, but I didn't want to embarrass her. After all she took my laughter so well. Ol' Doc is a great sport and is a cute mother-to-be in her blue overalls, that big belly and her rubber boots.
In the end, we have lots of cows who are pregnant to good bulls and will freshen at the right time for show calves.
