First calves born....
Yesterday this lil heifer calf was born to a first-time mama. We've had some pretty nice days lately, and Mama picked a good day to bring her baby into the Big Ol' World! Two more heifer calves were born today. We should be on a roll with new babies coming daily!
Meanwhile, I've been taking advantage of these warm days by washing our filthy coats and gloves after lambing season. Not that we won't get dirty during calving season. We will. But you know, sometimes you just hafta start fresh even though you know you're going to get dirty again in no time. I've also been washing the mud room rugs and putting them in the sunshine to dry. The clothes line is getting a good spring workout with all those work clothes. The sheets went on the line to dry this morning, and I can hardly wait to climb into crisp, sun-dried, wind-whipped sheets tonight! Oh, the lovely smell! I've been airing the house too with windows wide open while the 60 degree breezes blow through and carry the stale air out. I spent a little time soaking in some sunshine and indulging in my current book: The Scent of Water by Elizabeth Goudge. It might be my favorite book, but then again, I have quite a few favorite books!
I hope you've had a nice Saturday. What's new at your house?
