The beauty of things

Last night I was watching the series So You Think You Can Dance  and was very much enjoying the abilities of some of the contestants.  I love watching dance, I love watching good movement of any kind.  I wish I could move like a dancer, but unfortunately, I’m destined to remain relatively clumsy.  I love […]

On suffering

Most people think suffering is a bad thing, I do too, but sometimes there is good in suffering, especially if it is done with your eyes wide open and you learn from it. I’ve been reading a lot lately, more so than I’ve done in a long time.  All of these changes in me in […]

We are no longer a “Blog”

I just did my now maybe-once-a-week perusal of the “other” Border Collie Blogs.  Yuck, or should I say “muck?”  God, it seems like every day a new person puts up a Blog.  Then everyone else adds the new Blog to their “Blog Roll.”  I am not your general run-of-the-mill person: I’m quite different and individual […]

Catching up

It was a very busy and productive weekend.  On Saturday I helped Wally worm, trim hooves and retag all the ewes with lambs.  It got a bit rough.  Some of the ewes wanted to fight.  The St. Croix behaved, but one of the blackheaded Dorper ewes decided she was not going into that barn and […]

Hay

I left work a bit early yesterday.  I closed a $23,000,000 deal which I knew nothing about prior to last Friday so I was beat.  As I write this, we are closing a $150,000,000 loan, just waiting for a few more signatures and it’s closed.  Not a bad week’s worth of work. It’s so nice […]

Eggs and hay and Blogs

My ducks started laying again.  It took a farmer (Marcus) to bring it to my attention that I needed to give them some oyster shells.  Duh.  I should have know better.  Thank you Marcus, I’ve missed the eggs. A local farmer is going to be cutting the back fields, including the one I rent.  My […]

If you could only see

I may have mentioned that I have rediscovered my love of music.  I bought an iPod a few weeks ago and now don’t know how I ever lived without one.  I have also discovered that my tuner/receiver at home isn’t working properly.  It seems that only the jacks to the TV/SAT are working.  Last night […]

Cleaning out bad energy

They killed me at work yesterday.  It’s hard to go from sitting around and twirling my fingers (not really, but you get the idea) to outright slammed and getting pulled in three or four different directions.  I suppose I should get used to it given the economy.  Our work schedule is likely going to be […]

Craziness!

I’m outright slammed at work, which is a good thing, but it leaves me little extra time during the day to write. So, this is a quick update to share photos that I took on Saturday of the ewes and lambs and some of Gel having a go-round with the St. Croix ewe.  The red ewe […]
