I made a few more crayon aprons for a gal in DeSmet.
The Finches are back! They are so fun to watch the feeder is right out my kitchen window.
I need to wash that window:)
I belong to the SD Cattlemen's Auxiliary, and along with help from the Beef Checkoff Dollars we do a promotion at Huste's Speedway in Brandon SD.
Our sign is on the 3rd turn and you can see it from the highway when you drive by the track.
Enjoying the free burger that we gave away one of 600!!! We also gave out 700 beef sticks, race flags and pencils with steer erasers for the kids. There wasn't as big a crowd as some years but still around 3500 race fans were there.We have done this promotion for 8 years.
still getting rain every few days....................JMF
After seeing the damage done to our trees by deer, buffalo and rabbits I don't think I will feed the wildlife for awhile!! Maybe next winter I will feel sorry for them and feed them again:)
We got a few calves worked and out to pasture last week. We were going to do a bunch today but it rained that is fine with us.
You said you were going to do what?????? We gave shots to our babies to keep them healthy so why not our calves? At least none of these guys ran out of the Dr's office like my husband and his sister did when they were little:) It didn't help them they still got their shots. I wonder if a spanking went with it LOL
Made a couple more aprons. I got the star fabric at the new quilt shop in Huron. It's in with the Java Hut.
To greener pastures..
Their summer home! I think we should all have a summer home oh what am I thinking we do it's the pickup checking these guys out to make sure they are still in their summer homes.
Becky and John's presents.
I took these on the way home from Brookings because Lucas wants to see how big their bills or beaks are. I don't think his idea about how to see them is legal (shooting one) so the pictures was the next best thing. Hunting must be in boys DNA at least in our family:)
Last night we shut all the gates in Larry's pasture thinking we would be putting cows in it today. Oh well it's done now.
This is just the cab of the pickup! The box is worse:)
What is that motto Always be prepared I guess it's a good one.
If you read this Larry and Joan I love your pasture it's hilly, has lots of dips,big rocks and history!
This is what Greg and I put together the other night.
A Murphy bed or some call it a wall bed. Now I just have to get a mattress for it. I could have gotten one from the same place as the bed, but that would have been to easy! (dummy me)
It is a queen size. I am thinking a wall hanging in there and a quilt on the mattress when I get one:)
This deer looks alittle shaggy, and thin. There are 5 or 6 that live in the trees behind the house, so we see them almost every morning and night. Although this one was here around noon.
Praise the Lord we got 2 inches of rain yesterday, and it is raining as I type this.
Now the guys are all excited about getting cows and calves to pasture! Ordered the vaccine yesterday so it will be a go when the weather permits. I know 2 boys who will be very happy this weekend:)
Mud it's a good thing!!!!
Now I will be mowing the yard in a few days, and I'm not even going to complain:) soon I will plant my garden too. Squash, pumpkins, snake gourds, cucumbers and maybe beans. Lucas if you are reading this that's our job next Wed when you are here!!......................JMF
