I'm Here, I'm Here!

I haven't dropped off the face of the earth, though I have managed to have zombied through the past two weeks.  LOL  It's is exhausting to get old.

My computer came down with the blue screen of death.  It is at the computer doctor now. It is over six years old, but I would like to get the pictures off.  I usually back everything up on a flash drive,  but slacked off the past few months.

I finished my slub scarf and  started on my stepson's scarf.  He leaves tomorrow,  so I din't think I'll have it finished in time.  LOL  I've worked on my Giants blanket,  but it is just too warm to have it on my lap.

We did a trip to the beach last weekend.  It was beautiful!   got a picture of the herd of sea otters in the bay.  My stepson was counting the sea dollars he found.  It was his lucky day. LOL

Since I am posting from my phone,  these pictures are in no particular order.  Be kind to one another.

Looking To Purchase, Two Extra Hours A Day....

Or, Too Many Cows, Too Little Time...

Good morning, peeps and peepettes.  I know, I know, I have been MIA for two weeks.  Let me map out my days for you.

Roll out of bed at 4 am.
Get dressed, make lunch, go to work.
Work all day, head home.
Oh, wait, need to feed the cows!! Five different stops, 35 head of cattle, takes two hours.
(My brother is on vacation, so I am on cow patrol.)
Feed cows.
Get home, feed family and Dad.
Put hay in truck for tomorrow.
Take shower, sit down to knit or stitch, fall asleep, wake up, go to bed.

Next morning...

Roll out of bed at 4 am.
Etc, Etc, Etc...

But, I have taken pictures for you!  LOL  This is how it starts.  If you look carefully, you can see a bit of a cow....waiting...

Crunch, crunch, crunch....

My baby cow, not really a baby anymore!

We were lucky to get some rain this past winter, and honestly, we only feed hay supplement to keep our cows in top shape.  We planted and harvested 1100 bales of hay, so we will be fine this winter. But why do we feed?  Here is California in July...dry and brown...


Brother will be home late tomorrow.  Thank goodness, I'm tired.  LOL

The Fourth of July was spent with family, and I am off on weekends, but those days were filled with chores and more chores.  I fit in a few naps, just to try and catch up.

I don't want you to think that I've been a slacker.  I have ALMOST finished my slub scarf.  I have ten, yes, ten, rows left.  I am hoping that I can get it done between house chores today.

And a couple of random pictures...

Here is a baby bunny ear...

A baby bird...

And baby fish...lots of them...LOL  I started with eleven fish, three died, the rest is history...These are orange platies and my two algae eaters.  

So...I am off and running, kind of...LOL  At my age, I don't really run anywhere these days.  Have a wonderful weekend, be kind to one another.
