Blackflies, Mosquitoes, Cows and ??
With blackflies clinging to my window screens and cows and calves and a few bulls in the corral the day with glorious sunshine greets me! Piggies are sleeping in their hay nest. They love to bury themselves in there. It has been a rather busy last few days. We got home late Sunday evening which was really early Monday morning. Went branding, tagging, and ringing, calves and a few bulls on Monday. Tuesday found us working around here trying to get things caught up after being gone for the week-end.
The breeze blew and kept the bugs down for a bit. Any moments that it stood still mosquitoes covered you and hungry little blackflies tore at you. Everyone wanting a piece of your flesh. Really though the blackflies are my least favourite. I have big itchy, dried bloody lumps all over meself!
Today the cattle are being moved to Teepee Lake their designated range.
There is hope of getting our garden plowed (rototilled by tractor) on the week-end. It is so busy everyone has to find time to get everything that is needed doing done.
I have somehow to get a couple of shirt patterns cut out and sewn in the next couple of weeks and odds and ends of projects to finish up.
We are excited for our little grandson Issac as he now has a new baby brother~~Pretty fun. That baby brother's other grandmother is not having a part in this baby so we are officially the other grandparents. That is cool with us. Can hardly wait to see this new little arrival. Prayerfully on Friday there is hope of going to town then.
We have been to the big city of Burnaby BC over the week-end.Visited one of our daughters and her husband there. That was a quick and way too short visit with them. Just one overnight but as far as the city part goes it was long enough to last me for years! It had been a few years since I had been down there. Come to realize that I am really out of it as far as make-up fashions go~~such as solar fingernail polish~pedicures as a part of regular treatment~~and beaded eyelashes!! Its all so ~~lovely!!
Well we are back to our reality and thoroughly enjoying it bugs, smell of burning calf hair, bears,broken down running shoes, cow poop jeans and all.
The day has it promises of work and challenges with sun shining down on us and warm temps. Clear air and glistening clean river water, green leaves coming out on trees,surrounding us. This is the day the LORD hath made and we will live it to the fullest!
Now to him that is able to keep you from falling,
and to present you faultless before the presence
of his glory with exceeding joy,
To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty,
dominion and power,
both now and ever. Amen.
Jude verses 24 & 25
Have a great day
