Today was a short day. It was sunny but very windy. Warm wind out of the South. The temperatures have warmed up too, going to be near 90 degrees and hot this weekend. Not quite Fall yet, but close, very close. We started sorting the steers early. The trucks (semis) were about 3 hours away. So we had the choice of either going to another range about 2 miles away and driving more steers or going home until noon. My choice was home. I would have liked to stay and worked the whole day (especially since I was riding Joe again) but Wee One woke up feeling puny with a bad runny nose and not feeling good at all. I just didnt have the heart to make him stay at his mean Aunties until late afternoon(I also has son#1 to pick up at school). So, before noon, we were both home, I had already showered off the cattle dust, and we had PB&J with plain chips for lunch. Toddler Terror’s rice bread isint too bad-I kinda like it myself. I have a quick trip down to AKiN’S Natural Foods Market in Tulsa this weekend to get more non-dairy, wheat-free goodies for Toddler Terror. Since his surgery is Thursday, we’ll be down there Wednesday for his pre-op and paper signing, we might go by Akins, but one never knows how Toddler Terror will behave….so I am going this weekend too so he has a variety of his foods especially when he wont be feeling well at all the end of next week.
I took a picture of this scary spider last night. Son #1 wanted me to get closer so I could zoom right in but I told him “no way!” and zoomed from a safe, very faraway distance. I hate spiders. I was going to dispose of it but I was distracted. If it is still there today, I’ll get rid of it with the raid spider spray and the shovel. Wee One is always playing all over outside, I do not want him to get bit by it. I dont think these kinds are poisonous or usually come indoors…but I still do not like it hanging around….
Our tiny little hamlet’s water tower. I am not the best picture taker while driving 1-handed on a dirt road….I’ll try to get a better picture in the daylight. Up higher on the hill, the view is tons better.
My stinky neighbors, for all you cow lovers..
More dusk pictures of my stinky neighbors.
This big white-faced heifer stopped and let me take all kinds of pictures of her. Then, when I turned around to chase after Toddler Terror who was slinging horse feed around in the barn, she ran at me from behind- sneaky heifer! I was in my horse pasture at our fence line when I took the pictures. Just one more reason I like ’em med-rare with A1 sauce. No offense to my cow lover friends…but sneaky bovines suck.
Dirty horse Scooter after Toddler Terror rode him around bareback. He was not too thrilled but tolerant, such a good horse. The Old Guy isint too thrilled about his new exercise regime either.
