My goodness—Lavada had to call and remind me to send my blog. I actually had it ready, then the internet went down last night and I completely forgot this morning—so sorry—again!! NOW
I hope all of you are ready for Christmas. We have had some really nasty weather here in the Pacific Northwest so all of my shopping has been done locally, which is a good thing. I usually order on-line a little but didn’t even do that this year. I asked for lists from my grandchildren but not one of them could think of anything they wanted or needed—grrrr. Finally got a list from one granddaughter and I could get almost everything on her list (wasn’t much). Then my youngest grandson—I waited and waited and finally sent him a text saying I was going to feel really bad when all he had to open was a pair of socks, a lump of coal and maybe, just maybe a little candy cane. I quickly got a list (of pictures) no less of everything he needs to head off to college next year. I didn’t even want to think about him going to college yet and especially didn’t want to start buying college stuff. One of the things on his list (really this is true) was a broom and dustpan. He even sent a picture of them, like I don’t know what a broom and dustpan is?? We did buy them and I put a BIG bow on them.
The dogs are very nervous now that the tree is up. Missy knows she hasn’t been good this year so Santa might miss her—I even warned her time and time again to be good and quit attacking Daisy but she never listens.
I had an exciting experience this morning. I went out to feed the cows and no cows—hmmm. I went on out to the barn and called them and here they were all standing in the barn. They have not done that for three years, just prefer to be fed outside—rain or shine. Yesterday we got a load of really nice hay in and they must have thought they might get a bite if they came to the feeder. Good thing—I don’t have to walk through the mud to feed them—bad thing—I have to clean the barns.
It’s been nice just staying home lately because of the weather but with basketball started we will be on the road again a lot. Plus I got some nice decorating done this year. Hope each you have a very Merry Christmas and a Safe and Wonderful New Year. From our farm to you—Jim, Nancy, Daisy and Missy and all the Black Angus girls, oh and course Mimi the cat.
