The Cattle Have Gone To Their Pastures!

Hi Everybody, Hope this finds you all well! Things have been pretty busy here.

  The cattle have gone to their different pastures, well not the bulls yet, that has been saved for this weekend.Last week Fuzzy and I had bonding time and I learnt more interesting language, did not know that there were that many cuss words. I am not sure what his problem was as it was me who was in the chute with the step dancing calves,and I still have the bruises to prove it.Took the two of us three days to get about  two hundred and thirty head vaccinated and sorted into different pasture groups and hauled out. Thank The Lord it is done!!!
lily of the valley for the month of may
My lilacs and a favorite old post card that was framed
   Getting some of the yard work done but a long way to go, having fun playing in the dirt,until I hear those little words BOB I NEED YA FOR A MINUTE..... Two hours later I am back in My happy place,but it is nice to be needed. The lily of the valley was pretty this year and had to bring some in, so that could enjoy it close up and personal. On one of the trips over to the other yard to help load the seed drill I remembered my nippers so I picked lilacs to bring home with me.Found an old white enamel jug to put them in and set them near the back entry to greet us on the way in so very fragrant. How many of us picked lilacs for our teacher on the way to school growing up,seemed a right of spring and the beginning of the end of the school year.
   Sunday was my day to clean the church, and I had three little helpers,the place shone and their momma wondered why they don't clean like that at home. Their response was but this the church it is more special,don't that beat all. Sunday after supper Fuzzy and I took Miss Lindsay horseback riding and were informed that she had to be home for eight o clock to watch the eclipse,cause daddy was going to let them see it thru the welding helmet. We were able to join in, and see it to, amazing!
    I found a different yarn this spring, so anytime I go with Fuzzy in the truck I have been taking it along and knitting when I have to wait, and when I can't be outside in the evenings or any down time so have some scarf made for the oh my goodness I need a gift box.
  Well the crop is in the cattle are in pastures so now I will have more time to work on the yard and enjoy the birds singing in the yard, Mom is moving down for the summer soon, so there will  be the occasional road trip,maybe a garage sale or two. but thank the lord life is very special.
     I have put up some pictures they are not the best,maybe I need a new camera or some lessons, but hope you can get the idea of what I am trying to show you.
These are the scarfs the green one is different yarn, finer.
   Take care and God bless!


  1. The scarves are amazing!! When I can justify buying more yarn (hardee har har), I'm going to get some cool stuff like you had and try making a fancy scarf.
    And I need you to give me a lesson on how to arrange flowers for inside--yours look so much better than mine!

    1. Thanks knitwit, hope you have a great weekend!

  2. Wow, you've been busy . I know the feeling wrestling with calves and I get bruised too sometimes. They are strong and weight as much and sometimes more than me.

    I'm not a scarf wearing person but I can appreciate their beauty and the work that goes in them.

    I love how you display the beautiful lavender blossoms.

    Have a wonderful long weekend. JB
