New Finds,New Calves,New Plants Things Are A Happening!

 Hi Everybody, Hope all is well with you! Things are a starting to pop around here from cows to seeds yah! Tuesday saw the start of calving here, with one of the commercial cows being the first to start, she had a real nice little heifer calf  and such a good Momma she did not want us near for a while. Last night brought the second one, a bull calf this time, who needed a little help making his entrance, followed by another cutie this afternoon.They are all so cute and black, hoping the purebred Herefords start soon, with their pure white heads, and white socks. The blacks are cute with their long eyelashes and coats that look like velvet. What am I saying I love'm all. This morning we tagged and tattooed the first two and I got some pictures, the little fella was in the calving barn and we had put momma out , so I got down in the straw to get a picture and the sweetie came on over to check out what was going on so I got a real close up. The little miss was just in the shed with momma so did not get to close.
    Back up at the house the plants are starting to pop, so the greenhouses around might not see much of me this year if things keep growing and survive my care when we really get busy with calving. Thought I would share some pictures of these too.
   About a week ago was talking to one of Fuzzy's cousins, and she asked if I wanted some old chairs that where from some of the family as she had enough and knew I appreciated the old treasures. My response was yes, could I buy them from her and she said she just wanted to get rid of them, I was very happy to take them of her hands, love them. Now here is where I would like some input, do I just re glue them and do any other repairs that are needed or repair them and refinish them or I even have a hard time saying this, paint them. Please let me know what you think, having a hard time deciding , but am leaning towards just fixing them up.
   I am off to the great white north this weekend to see my Mom for her 85th birthday, and take sometime checking out the consignment shops up there as it is something we both enjoy and she does not get to go much now. We should have a lot of fun, I'll  come home after church on Sunday as Fuzzy will be on his own calving, so don't want to be gone to long.
   Hope everyone has a great weekend! I'm off to check cows, see ya later!


  1. Congratulations on your three calves. We have dairy cows and calves are born year round. I'm expecting 4 new calves around the 24th of March.

    Your rocker looks beautiful. I was wondering what kind of wood it was made of. It depends on how much time you have on your hands to refinish it. I would have to see it close up to be able to tell if it needs refinishing or just cleaning. JB

  2. Golly gee, I'm a little late to the party but I'll send your sweet Mama a big old Happy Birthday wish anyway.

    Wow...85, I bet she's quite a lady.

    God bless ya and have yourself a sunshiny kinda day sweetie!!! :o)

  3. I just had to have a catch-up here. Have I seriously not been around for a MONTH?! Yeesh!
    I love those little calves. What a great way to usher in spring! Well, minus all that having to get up all night to make sure everyone's doing alright out there--I don't envy you that!
    The chairs are beautiful. What a score! I think I'd just fix them up and leave them as is. Though it's always amazing to see what people do to old furniture with paint and new fabric too. I guess it depends on how ambitious you're feeling!
    Okay, I promise to be back soon. Hoping everything will start settling down after this week! Have a great Sunday!
