It's Almost the Weekend!!!

Not that it matters, since when you live on a farm, every day is a work day. Oh, and holidays? Days off? Vacations? What are those?

Anyway, cheers for Friday! I was going to try to post something on the blog yesterday, but this is what my Thursday looked like:

The cattle are loose. Those bad girls went through the fence...again.
Hubby happens to be away when the cattle misbehave. Go figure.
Unbelievable how my doggy won't help me push the cattle back to where they're supposed to be! The dog prefers to play with rocks. *sigh*
Really happy that Little One has been sleeping in the BabyBjorn (snuggling inside my jacket) as I work outside cleaning up the raspberry canes and try to salvage the garden that the tractor ripped up in the midst of house renovations.
Surprised that it's already May! Time seems to just fly by!
Don't know how I'm going to get the cattle back where they're supposed to be.
Amazed that I was able to move some heavy furniture in the kitchen on my own to give the kitchen a facelift.
Yes, life on the farm is not always easy...but it's a healthy and good life :) I'm curious to see how things go when I start teaching ESL again. Having some minor anxiety attacks just thinking of incorporating teaching and students into life with baby and life on the farm. Oh, well. We'll cross that bridge when we get there.

Daddy's little farm girl, sporting her John Deere onesie. Oh, I should say her 3-6 month onesie!!! She outgrew her preemie and newborn outfits and is now wearing 3 month outfits! Technically, she is supposed to be almost 3 months old, so I guess she's right on track for a preemie who was born almost three months early! Little One now weighs 8 lbs, 5 oz :)

*Update: I did manage to keep the cattle from going onto the highway! They stayed in the field behind our house (still where they weren't supposed to be!), but kept them out of trouble until Hubby finally came home from a sawmill job.*

Love the outfit!! My hubby would love to find one that says New Holland as he's kind of partial to that brand!! Farmers.... LOL

Patti, Hubby prefers New Holland too, but could only find John Deere! LOL! :) Hubby's got a Kubota, New Holland and err...I can't remember what the other tractor is. We don't even have a Deere! I think the outfit is cute though! BTW, Hubby got Little One a bunch of John Deere outfits when he thought she was a boy! Girls can farm too though!

P.S. Give me a shout and we'll take the babies for a walk :) TTYS! XO

She is such a cutie and so intelligent looking.
Tell her to stay away from the "Hookers"!!!!!LOL!!!

I just love that outfit.

Really sucks about the cows.

Ah, what fun! Chasing the girls around. Don't you love that it usually happens when you are alone? So you have a highway close too? It keeps things interesting when you have an escape, doesn't it?

Vacations and days off when you are in the agricultural business are quite ephemeral, aren't they? Toss in a baby and you don't even have time to dream about them. Ha.

My hubby doesn't own anything of the John Deere brand. We have an Oliver, a Massey Ferguson, and...oh me, I forget now. It sounds like a girl's name.

Little one looks so cute in her Deere outfit though. Can't believe how big she's grown!

I'm so impressed with the things you do with LO strapped to you! Cute way of presenting your THURSDAY, too. :)
