I Don't Know Nothin' 'Bout Birthin' Calves!

october2011 043

Just right up front I gotta say that I really don't have much to say.
Well other than we're outrageously busy around here with old mother cows
'bout to birth babies, the rest of the critters, 4-H, educatin' kids, choir, scouts, getting ready for a craft show, and numerous and other sundry stuff.
Probably just like your homestead, huh?

And regarding the big old cows birthin' babies...we're excited! We've never experienced this part of the whole cattle scene before. Well, I should probably correct myself there. Tim has.
He's delivered many a calf. I was there for some of them. One of our premarital discussions over money took place while Tim was performing a c-section on a heifer. Imagine if you will, little ole me pouring a bucket of antiseptic solution over a huge gaping incision that Tim had just pulled a calf through and moi asking rather nonchalantly, " Are we going the route of joint checking accounts or seperate?" You got the picture. And that's really the way our lives have rolled ever since!

Have a wonderful week!
Blessings, Julie

doesn't life seem to be spinning faster?
I still love seeing your photos. The Oklahoma sunset is beautiful.
Herogian will do two weeks this next summer as a student assistant of animals at the Bear River Ranch/ Cub Creek Science Camp.

Beautiful sunset! And I want that cupcake! LOL! life is interesting, isn't it? And how boring would a discussion on finances be at the dining table like everyone else... ;O)

Lol! I love the scene you set for that conversation! So funny.

Love that you touched base, even with not so much to say

LOL-that is hysterical about the finances being discussed during cow surgery. ;) Isn't it funny how sometimes there is so much going on that there aren't words to encompass it all? :) I so love your photos! Holly
