The change to regular time hasn’t helped around the farm much. The cows and dogs still want to eat on Daylight Savings time. Even if I try feeding a little later in the morning they are still ready to eat by 3:30 in the afternoon and the whole neighborhood hears about it.
The cow treats are still a big hit with the show string from last summer and fall and now I have the calf chasing me for a treat. Little Miracle is not very little anymore and she doesn’t realize how big she is getting. She jumps and runs at me like she is one of the dogs still—if she could bark I’m sure she would do that also but all I get is a MAAAAAAA. Good thing I have a really strong NO voice—got that from raising three boys.
Daisy and Kodi are enjoying just being in the house and are always upset if we have to leave for a few hours and leave them outside. I even bought new teddy bears for them and Daisy usually has one beside her when she takes her many naps throughout the day.
Football is still going on for our high school. Last year they won the state championship and they are on course to do so again this year. After last Saturday’s game I said “no more”. “I’m not sitting there and freezing another Saturday”. Guess where I’ll be Saturday—I just can’t seem to stay away. Extra blankets will have to work this week and of course we are supposed to have lots of rain–again. Just watching the sportsmanship, skills, and dedication that these young men show impresses me so much. So think of me Saturday when you are curled up by your fireplaces with a good book and I’m freezing at another football game.
I am truly thankful for my family and friends and even my silly animals. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend.
