It’s been a frigid day and I’m frozen to the bone. I decided to pour a glass of wine, grab my laptop and retract to the recliner under a warm blanket for a quick update. We finished AI-ing and kicked the cows out to winter pasture. The grass was so deep it touched their stomachs as they wound through their new surroundings. I have been watching for bull activity; luckily, nothing yet! Praying for a nice set of AI calves next fall!
Although, I didn’t meet my deadline of having the upstairs finished by New Year’s Eve; I’m slowly making progress! I swear I have painted 15 million coats of paint. OK, maybe that’s an exaggeration, but it truly does feel like I have painted that many since starting this remodel project last Summer. The bedroom floors upstairs are finished and I have been painting the last bedroom. Fingers crossed I’m finished by this time next week. I can’t wait to move furniture and start setting up my work areas! Getting back to work is LOOONNGGG overdue! Take a look at the colorful rooms with old carpet that I transformed into clean, light and original looking spaces. I LOVE the hardwood floors!!!
When I wasn’t upstairs elbow deep in sawdust and paint, I was outside. One brisk, icy morning I caught a few snap shots while making morning rounds on the 4-wheeler. “Broker” turned 8 years old the end of December and I caught him enjoying life out with his girls. Look at him as a new born calf… and at his massive self, now!
A few more morning snapshots!
Thankfully, I can now feel my toes, guess I better get up and finish a few things before hitting the hay to start it all over again tomorrow! I loved catching up with you and hope you are staying warm! Before I close, do you happen to have a warm drink recipe that is your favorite when you feel like you’re “Frosty the Snowman”? I’m looking for a new go to! Feel free to share it in the comment section below! Thank you!!
May the year 2022 be propitious for all of us!!!
Until next time, Happy Trails!
