Slight breeze handing us a wind chill of -5.
Slick roads and ground blizzards.
Of course, we went to town today… why wouldn’t we?
I’m working on an item for our library Silent Auction next week.
I chose to use wool, and decided to copy this great vintage Father Christmas card.
I know, why not start with a box? Or an apple? NOOOOOO…
I have to start with a PERSON for heaven’s sake!
Well, here it is SO FAR!
There’s lots to work on… and who knows if I’ll get it done by the 9th or not!
Why, oh why, do I do this?
It’s too far along for me to quit now, but I sure wish I’d needle felted a box instead!
Tomorrow night is supposed to bring us an Arctic blast of frigid air, with highs in the single digits and snow.
I tried to accomplish some preparations before it hits.
I split a couple of loads of firewood for the wood stove should the electricity go out!
Then my Big Task for the day… clearing off the straw we had used to protect our freshly poured concrete. A little contemplation, and I decided to gather up the tarp underneath the straw into a “parachute”.
That wasn’t hard!
I pulled into the corral, dropped a couple of strings… and it dumped onto the ground!
OK, heifers, here’s the deal today.
Walk up that alley into the squeeze chute and receive a FREE TATTOO!
Be the first in the pasture to sport the new Age Brand! Worn on your left hip, this helps aid in your identification, should you ever be lost or stolen! This year’s Age Brand brought to you by the Number Two!
You’re the Top of the Heap now!
You’re a Greet Ranch Herd Cow… and we expect to be proud of you!
Was this a great deal on Black Friday, or what?
