I have been lolly gagging this morning, I admit it.
Reading blogs, doing email... reading The Facebook feed, which I have come so lately to doing.
At around 9:15, I drove over to De Soto, to pick up an order. I went through farmland to do so, and saw lots of neat things.
I passed acres and acres of corn growing well.
I stopped to admire this beautiful estate for sale... but it has been for sale for a long, long time. It is on it's third realtor.
Funny, I am so satisfied with our plain little house.
I'm not satisfied with the unfinished deck on the side, though... and Keith is meaning to get to this as soon as the weather is a little kinder. Yesterday afternoon, I climbed into the framework to cut down TREES and weeds growing higher than you see here.
I disturbed a nest of wasps by doing so.
I was stung once by five wasps at once, many years ago, and I have a fear of them because of it.
I managed to get out of the framework and drive the tractor and cart away before being stung.
We are going to Roundup this area... we don't have a choice. Then the deck will be finished, and the wasp problem allayed.
On my way to Caprine Supply this morning, I passed a pasture where a lone cow was standing by the fence. I realized a new born calf was literally hanging down her rear, almost ready to drop.
I told the lady at Caprine about it.
When I came back by, I took some pictures.
There was the baby on the ground and already up, tottering around her.
It made me feel so good to see that baby had found the milk bar, and was already getting it's vital colostrum from mama.
My chore help this morning was being VERY naughty, and had to go back in the house!
I stopped at a moving sale this morning... and asked questions about something I saw on the road to the sale. I discovered something I had tried for years to find out about.
Sunday, I'll make a short trip to take pictures and then write all about it on the blog.
Have a great weekend, everyone... we have the T Bones tonight... still losing, but we love our team!
