I've still found time to blog (amazingly!) somehow and I worked on a "fix-it-up" project!
My dear mother gave up "ownership" of this poor neglected sign and transferred it to my "tender loving care"!
The Finished Project!
I was able to paint it all in one day (I dislike it greatly when projects drag on and on) and am fairly happy with how it turned out! My handwriting is not the best so "writing" with a paint brush was a challenge. But, at least you can read it!
I just love the barbed wire hanger! I think I'll make one for my Mamma now!
Among other things going on here... We have company!
Tristan and Collin have been helping a neighbor feed his cattle every evening for about a month now. They have gotten some real hands on experiance with giving cows shots, feeding them, and in general learning how to care for them.
The boys brought this little girl home Wednesday night. Her Mamma had become sick and as a result it had to be put down. The boys are "bottle feeding" her and doing all sorts of things to get her to eat.
She's only a little bigger than Lila (pictured) who weighs about fifty-five pounds. Collin let Lila in with the calf this morning and I think Lila would've mothered her if she, Lila, hadn't been so excited about being out of her pen!
Sawyer likes the "baby cow" and talks about her whenever he sees Collin!
