The Herd


With Sir Arthur in front.  He is settling down some, but Bertha still runs him out of the herd anytime he comes to her attention.

Today was a rainy day, but I walked anyway.  I bundled up in the rain jacket Betty gave me and a orange hat and vest as I walked through a pasture part of the way.  In deer season, if you walk off the road, it is best to ware orange.

Life in the slow lane...


This afternoon George was working on the goat barn and went to the hardware to get some screws and nails.  When he got to the register to pay, he found he had forgot his wallet.  Tony's son was running the register and George explained his problem.  Kyle said not to worry.  They put it on Kelly's account.  Don't tell anyone though, cause I don't think anyone told Kelly about this.

Today, I walked about 5 miles, up to Peden's chicken houses.  I thought this was Penden's bull, but George says it is Trigg's.  Yesterday I was not feeling good so I did not walk, but today all is well. Monday, I did not walk, but from Friday through today, I have walked 20 miles.  At twenty minutes a mile, that is almost 7 hours of walking.

A little warmer tonight

At least it got above 40 degrees today.  I walked 4 miles or there abouts.  Did not walk yesterday.  Too cold and too much to do.

Robert is gone to scouts now.  He is supposed to build a bird house tonight.  The last few times he has gone to scouts, Greg has just taken Hannah along. She says it is fun.  Dad said there are usually one or two other girls there.

Tomorrow is Camel day.

It is snowing

But not so cold as it has been.  It is 34 now.  We went to Church this morning.  Helen has made us spaghetti sauce for supper.  I am making rolls and the spaghetti to  go with the sauce.  I promised Helen I would make good rolls, not healthy, but when it came time to mix them, I could not resist the cracked wheat and whole wheat.  I think they are going to be good.  After you make a few hundred batches of bread, you can usually tell when it will be good.

Yesterday, in the cold, I walked to the red barn early in the morning.  I looked like this.


It was pretty cold, but I was  all bundled up and did not get cold.  When I got home, I took the kids and went to Harrison.  I needed new walking shoes and I got both kids new shoes for good measure.  I got a good pair of New Balance shoes almost like what I had.  The last ones I bought in August, so they lasted about 3 months.

Today, after we got back from Church, I walked down to the creek in the snow.  I looked like this.


This time of year, when you walk through the woods, you need to wear orange.

27

was the temp at 8 this am.  Now it is all the way to 31.  I am going to go walking in a bit, but I may not go very far.  Betty is making a scarf for me but she is slow, so I made one from a piece of fleece.  It is warm and very cute.  I have to go back today and get a material to make one like it for Hannah. Robert took my picture so you can see.  He says, say stinky feet.


After my walk, I am going to go buy new walking shoes.  I bought new shoes when I started walking in August, and they are wore out.  I figure I have walked over 250 miles in these, just on my daily walks.

And, now it is 32 degrees.

Scarf

If I had a scarf, I would want it to be in shades of grey, wide and soft. Wide, because it would need to cover my neck, but be wide enough to pull up over my nose without leaving my neck bare to the cold wind.  And soft like me.
