My brother is out of town, so we were on cow patrol this weekend. Here is a picture of part of our herd:
Notice that they are doing what they do best...EATING!! LOL Tried to get a picture of our little white heifer, but she was hiding behind momma cow. My husband loves the red cows, so there are quite a few with our brand. Brother doesn't care, a cow is a cow. No personal relationships there. LOL
Warning: If you don't care for large spiders, skip the next picture.
Here is a little friend that we saw crawling our way.
Can you see the hairy little legs? Mr. or Ms. Tarantula was in a big hurry to get under the haystack. Thank goodness we had already fed. I don't mind watching them, but I don't like when they sneak up on me. Can you imagine if I had picked up the bale and found THAT? LOL
The property that we lease is part of a vineyard. Only about half of their 600 acres are in grapes, so we lease about 200 acres per year. I don't drink wine and I'm very annoyed with the vineyards that have taken up all the dry farming and ranching land. I try to find the beauty in all and I did get a great picture of the grape leaves changing color. Very pretty.
I haven't done any work on my stitching, but....one of Dad's caregivers is a crocheter. I was talking (whining) about how I was just not able to "get" crocheting. She laughed, said anyone could do it. I assured her that I was of the few in the world that was definitely crocheting challenged. Well, Friday afternoon, she proved me wrong! This is my amazing granny square. I am just going to keep going, and going, round after round. I should end up with a king size granny square by the time I get done. LOL I've been stalking Pinterest, but most of the sites use all those fancy abbreviations when they talk about crocheting. Guess I'll only be doing granny squares for a while.
So I'm off to finish my Dad chores and get ready for tomorrow. It has been tough doing everything by myself, but it has made me more appreciative of what hubby does with Dad everyday.
Have a great week and be kind to one another.
