Comings and Goings

May 30, 2017

Time to wean the twins, Fred and George.  I surprised myself, easily separating the calves from their mom.  I moved Agnes around to the pond to hang out with the chickens.  Whenever things go well with the large livestock, I do marvel at my life transformation!Agnes was not all that keen to be separated from her calves, but did find that she enjoyed the chicken’s feed.  I’m afraid things did not get better for my lovely cow, as we/me/I sold her offspring.  I have completely mixed feelings about this.  On the one hand, selling my calves at a good price quickly, makes me feel like a true cattle woman and other than the fresh cow manure I stepped in while getting them loaded, I did strut around the farm just a bit.  Seeing my cow Mooing loudly for her calves, as the trailer removing them drove down the road, made me feel like an evil child stealer, but….day two and we are both over it!  My big ‘herd management plans’ include adding another cow (or two) for Agnes, so she will always have a girlfriend around, hopefully by this fall.

Other than cattle management, we have been scurrying about trying to get ‘stuff’ done.  Number Two Son is graduating from CWU in a matter of weeks.  It is always amazing how God works.  Number Two never planned on going to CWU.  We even talked about it before we moved here….we were all sure it wasn’t for him…but having a college here, did make this ‘country town’ a better fit for these ‘city people’.  One thing led to another, it ended up being a very good fit for him and here I am weeding in a big way, getting ready for the big day!The attic bath is getting painted….and tiled….and hopefully by the time THE Grandkids come for THE Graduation, they will be bathing in THE UPSTAIRS TUB!

…and we are blessed!
