I was finally able to get my seeding done. Finished it on June 12th. A couple days past the deadline that i had set for myself. I had to push pretty hard to get done between rain showers. One night i seeded until around 4:30 in the morning, trying to get a field finished. It's a good thing that the Lady in Red was awake on the other side of the world, chatting with me on Twitter. She helped me to stay awake. Staying up all night doesn't seem to come as easily to me as it did about 3 or 4 years ago. This is what the sky looked like on my way home to bed that morning.
|the sun was just starting to come up|
June 11th was also my 18th wedding anniversary. My wife and i took advantage of a rainy day and went into the city on the 10th. As usual, we had a list of things that needed to be picked up or taken care of while were there but we went to a movie and out for supper. It was a nice evening.
A week or so ago, when it was too wet to be seeding, i had started on the new stone flower bed, so i had a place to plant the trees that we had bought in town. I got started on it just after we bought the trees, and actually, i was quite excited about the project.
|before......well, just after i had gotten started|
I finally got a start on moving my cows to pasture. I would really like to get it done this week because i need to turn the bulls in with them to breed. Otherwise, it will get so late into the season before i start calving next spring. Plus, two different grain companies have called, asking to have us deliver our grain to them this week, and we are in the middle of trying to spray our crops for weeds. We also have plans to go camping with friends this weekend (which i am really looking forward to) and because i'm lazy that way, i've just started looking at getting our trailer ready to go. Things are a bit busy around here.
The following weekend is graduation, my wife and i volunteered to help on the decorating. That means we will have to put a few days at the arena, preparing it for graduation. It appears as though i'll be running, right through until the end of the month.
.................after a long day of sorting cows and calves, it would be nice to sit down in the evening and have a beer, except i'm still trying to fit into that damn suit, so at least until then, it's water in the evening for me. Somehow, it's not quite the same.
..............OH! I am less than 400 views from 10 000. I am still open to answering questions for a chance to win my little tractor. If you have anything cross your mind, feel free to send them on.
