So for the last few days we haven’t really done much. Mom still has the lingering cough from her cold and I am finally done with mine. With the storms that have been coming through it has been to wet for much of anything to be done outside. And shearing has even stopped as we had to send off all the blades and get them sharpened.
So Pretty much all of Tuesday was us prepping for the Big storm. One of the things that is known about the prairie we live on is that it is part of Tornado Alley. And like everything around here there is a season for Tornadoes. And just to be clear … this storm was the start of Tornado Season. However, this time we were very lucky. We only got thunder and lightening with a ton of Rain and a bit of hail but nothing over pea size. As a matter of fact this time we didn’t even have repairs to do on any of the stalls. The only thing that did cause a bit of hubbub was that we had no power for quite a while. It went out at the start of the storms on Tuesday night and didn’t come back on until Wednesday afternoon.
Because to no electric a few things were cut short this week. The podcast for on is very short and sweet. Then Mom and I finally got all our events on the different websites. I don’t know if I have blogged about them or not but this summer we are going to do two different things. First in June we will be having a firefly and star gazing night and then in July we will be having a book program. Mom and I have worked hard to get things all lined out and Mom even found a way to put an online calendar on the web page. You can check it out HERE
Mom is also starting up her Free Fiber Fridays for summer and she is going to have a LADIES NIGHT!!! Anyway, After the electric came back on it was to wet to do much of anything else so we got everything lined out for our summer schedule. The only thing Mom has left to do is set the date for Ladies night. She knows it will be a friday night but she thinks she wants it to be right before School starts back up but then she says it will be to hot so it is looking more like a June kind of thing … LOL She will figure it out.
Anyway, Today after we got feed, I finally got to ride and we got our blade back so we did a bit of shearing as well. I think tomorrow we are going to try and do more then just our three head as Mom really wants every one sheared by May First … That was the plan but we didn’t count on the rain or our blade sharpener retiring … Oh well. I am sure we will be done soon.
There is one thing that came up this week that I guess I need to let everyone know. That is that Snapdragon is showing. By that I mean that Snapdragon the longhorn Cow has been playing with Mr. Zebu and it is starting to show. Okay, Okay … She has a bag and is swelling in her whoha area!! Yes, yes … That means she is more then likely prego!! Yes we are happy the only concern is that we don’t know if Ms. Zebu is pregnant or not. Only time will tell on that one as if you remember before the winter time accident Ms. Zebu had a baby by her side. So she might not have played with Mr. Zebu in that way. Like I said only time will tell … And just a reminder that the cattle that are to stay here are named wild flowers so we all probably need to be thinking of a name along those lines …
