It has been way too long.. but winter here has been cold and dreary and so have I. MS pain levels have been high this winter.. almost higher than I can tolerate.
This is one of the few pictures I have taken in recent weeks.. it is not spectacular but it tells me spring is coming.. I need spring to come this year..
Pics from September 27th 2012.. taken with my 14mp Kodak Easyshare..
Hunting season here.. opening weekend.. not even leaving the house during the day except to go to work and back..
so I am going through folders looking for pics I can edit and post…
a quiet day..
The cows almost milked themselves this morning… Kids were all in school..
so I.. outstanding person that I am..
took a nap…
in the pasture.. with my horse..
then took pictures
if only she’d quit making “donkey ears”.. I’d have a lot more pictures..
These I took with my ipod.. next to check the ones from my camera.. see if I got anything good with it..
Black Sheep.. and Paris
I took my daughter to the clinic for a recheck of her injured leg..
OH.. That’s right.. I did not say here what happened last weekend.. LOL
Well… my 11 year old daughter was playing in the barn.. where she was not supposed to be.. and got a Pitchfork stuck in her leg!! in by her shin and out the back of her calf.. she pulled it out.. walked to the house aided by her totally freaked out 4 year old sister.. surprisingly little blood! They did Surgery to make sure there was no major damage and to clean it out.. It’s all good and she is healing well.. and let me say.. BRAVE GIRL!
We got to the clinic and were surprised to see some flowers, not only hanging in there.. but full and bright.. these are the best of what I took.. It was COLD and WINDY.. but the girls wanted me to take pictures..
We are already missing the colors of summer…
These were taken with my Ipod.. and I don’t think I am ever going to get over how some of the pictures I take with it turn out.. I took some with my camera but have not had time to even look at them yet..
I worked worked the last 4 milking’s and have the day off today.. Planning to get back to work on the window insulation project I was in the middle of when my daughter got hurt.. and get outside and get some posts in the ground for my arena before the ground gets too frozen… get outside and gather stuff from the edges of the yard to burn.. This weekend my bestest friend is coming over and we have plans for a bonfire.. a big pot of chili and homemade cornbread.. and of course.. Margaritas.. I really like this life..
Happy content little black sheep
holy wow.. I am starting to feel damn near at the end of my reserves..
Seven weeks now I have been sick.. and yup.. pneumonia is back.
I am going to just try to get through this work day…
Inspection was moved from yesterday.. to tomorrow.. Today is finishing day and the Coup de grace.. I acquired a running lawn tractor to replace the non running one and it is almost sad.. I am excited as hell about being able to scrape the barn every day!! lol I am just glad tho.. that I am making.. even in some small ways.. life better for the cows.. my boss.. and eventually myself.
another very nice Ipod pic.. sure is a trusty little thing.
and no… I am not laying or sitting on the ground.. The grass is THAT tall..
off to get kids up and off to school then off for another full day of work for me.
SO. .worked my rear off for weeks now..
Ceiling in the parlor is painted white.. walls are white.. all the doors and frames are red. Cement floor in the parlor is patched, a new skill for me! A new cabinet on the wall in the milk house for supplies.. new hoses.. a full first aid kit.. even a freaking sharps container!! and clean EVERYTHING!
I think we are ready for the inspection.
Was driving home from work.. drove by a beautiful Milkweed bending and blowing in the wind and shining in the sun.. but was just too wiped out to stop and take a picture and regretted it as soon as I went by..
Soooo I drove “around the block” lol
batteries died after this one shot.. but the drive back was worth it!
then I came home… tried to take a nap.. but failed to hire adequate security.. lol.. kids came home.. neighbors and friends came by.. dogs barking, cars driving by.. phone kept chiming.. I spent a LOT of years living on 60 acres at the end of a 1/2 mile dead end road in the middle of no where.. and napping after work here is bit challenging..
One more day of “this and that” before inspection.. I want to make a darn good impression for my boss.. her business gets better.. she makes money.. I make money.. simple as that.. and..I like the cows..
I came across an EPIC battle on my way to work this morning..
Two Eagles and 6 or so crows and a large raven…. fighting it out in the trees and sky…. I am seriously bummed that I did not have a quality camera.. or even one that could capture some of it..
There was Diving, Screaming, Mad flights into the trees!! and my little ipod could not keep up..
These are the best of what I captured.. I like the 4th one the best..
