To concentrate too long on one subject
will cause the loss of perspective and
a common-sense viewpoint.
Boy, oh boy, have I been busy. This time of year, things always start to speed up and sometimes run a bit crazy, all on their own. There has barely been anytime for watching Netflix and lying on the couch.
Yes, you heard that right. I did seem to find a lot of spare time during those cold days of our past winter. I always finished feeding and taking care of the cow’s needs, but then finding it too cold to snowshoe, I seemed to have let things slide, just a bit around here. So now, I am at a frantic pace trying to catch up before the approaching haying season.
There were not very many opportunities for exercising going on this winter, so I decided to join a Pole Walking class a few weeks ago. My need to keep healthy as I age, seems to be very important to me lately. Yes I know, what was I thinking? I love the class and the people, but those two classes coupled with the creative writing class I have been keeping up with all year have my week pretty full now. I must admit keeping busy has me sleeping like a baby at night, always a good thing. I shall keep it up, as long as I am able.
Spring around the farm makes for many things going on all at once. My Hero has been planting fields. So that leaves me running around town after those classes filling my Jeep with seed, blocks of salt and groceries all jammed in together. Next week there is talk of filling it with baler twine. Oh yes the season of my fetching has begun. Thor the bull was moved to a new home and he is looking forward to some new pretty ladies to flatter. We finally let the cows into the pasture. That is always a special time. New beginnings and catching up with what you missed, or forgot all about doing, seems to be what spring is all about.
My mornings now consist of getting up at first light. I usually try to check my Blog and Facebook in case something comes up with you, my friends out there. I then head outside to give Louie and Lucy some grain and that needed attention they had gotten used to over the winter. Then I go back to the back fields of the farm to check the cows and calves. I must admit it is not all about work. I do take time in the mornings to spend with Bossy2 and Red, trying to get those hat shots that we all love. I do hope all of you are keeping busy while balancing the extra work you have found that spring brings. Never forget to enjoy the things that make you smile. We will get through this busy season, together.
So I thought I would fill this post with smiles for you in case I forget to come back for a bit. Do know this... I am thinking of all of you while you and I both work through the busy season, whatever that means in your world. See you soon. Don’t forget to smile.
