has been warm like spring but it is rolling to an end, the week and the weather. Weather man says the rains will hit Friday and after a couple of days, our temperatures will plummet. That's the nice thing about weather in Arkansas, if you don't like it just wait a few days and it will change.
We have a live heifer on the ground...this is good since the terrible loss of twin heifers a while back. We have reduced our herd due to the drought so much we will have only four more calves. Hopefully we can keep our heifers this year and rebuild the herd. Many areas have been affected by the drought and many cattle people have had to sell all their stock. We were lucky to keep a few.
I'm trying to think...what I've done this week and it's gone already.
Let's see, did some junk shopping and found some treasures. Compiled my tax expenses now waiting for W-2's. Filled out a farm report REQUIRED by the government that I couldn't complete until I had my totals for expenses...that took all day Wednesday
Repaired some fence, counted the cows, created some dishes and made bread. Cooked and cleaned and that's about it. No special projects, no natural disasters, just a slow week...unless I forgot something. Oh, yes, I have a short story being published in an E-magazine in March.
I delay a trip to town as long as possible. Thursday we went. Drugstore, Kroger's, WalMart, Hibbet's, Bath and Body, and a pawn shop. I postpone these trips until I am out of everything because I really don't like shopping. Cleaning, personal and laundry supplies replenished for a while. At the one stop shopping spot, I got a hair cut. Mom's old quilt cabinet I keep in the dining room is restocked fully. The 'fridge is full. Glory! I won't have to go to town for a while.
Hibbet's didn't have what I needed, Body works had a sale, Kroger's and Walmart got equal amounts. Pawn shop got a little and we headed home. Hubby asked, Want to eat here? I said our ice cream will melt. Now, that's odd for mid January.
So no exciting tales, no nail-biting drama but the larders are full and so are our tummies. For all that, we are deeply grateful. Hope your week was good.
