Want to buy some calves? :)

We're needing to sell these yearling steers very soon, so I took pictures of them today and Dad, Andrew & I placed an ad on-line (on Bis-Man) for them. If nobody is interested from there, then these fellas will be heading for the sales-barn shortly... (They're starting to eat a LOT!)

For some reason, our turkeys were wandering around in front of the house this afternoon. Mother asked me to get a picture of them, as they look so pretty in all their Winter finery...

My family and I took it easier today, as we're trying to get over a cold; and because Mother was worn out from her classes; and also because the snow made it seem like Winter--and Winter is our vacation time! Not that we don't work in the Winter, but there is more time to do pleasant things like reading; sewing; baking; and playing games.

We did get a few things accomplished this afternoon though... For example: We sat down with paper; pen; receipts and a calculator to accomplish the daunting task of figuring out who owes who what! We young people owed Dad & Mom for some feed that they purchased a while back for our cows and calves, plus for some supplies for the barn... Andrew & Dad owed me for the slings that I had purchased for their/our guns... Dad bought the old fencing vehicle (the "Ram") back from Andrew, as Andrew has his own wheels now and we need the Ram for fencing... Etc, etc, etc...... It was a bit confusing, but it's a good feeling to have that taken care of now. :)

After a while, we headed downstairs for a few rounds of Foosball. Mother joined in even--something that she hasn't done for quite a while. So, while I was waiting my turn to play, I took some pictures... Like my Hubbard squash border?
Well, another day has come to a close and it's once again time to head for bed. Here's a little thought to put a smile on your face:

"It is good to let a little sunshine out as well as in." :)
