photos of our day

I can't say I've accomplished a lot today, except for educating myself some more on sodium content of foods, and cooking meals.  I follow Cliff around a lot, making sure he doesn't do anything he shouldn't.

Thanks to Travis and Tyler, we got the heifer calves loaded with no strain on Cliff; his brother, Phil, hitched up to the trailer and took them away. 

While taking my regular walk this morning, I heard a deep, throaty growl in the woods near the path, the sort of growl you don't want to hear from a dog because it means business.  Right after the growl I heard some baby yip-yip-yips... then another growl, then more yips.  My guess is that a mother coyote saw me and Sadie, and was forcing her babies to safety against their will.

Great pictures!  Nice to see that there's some 'normal' back in life.

You had an interesting day today... They sure do have a lot to do with that burned out house don't they. It's nice to get help when you need it too with the calfs and it's really nice Cliffs co workers come and talk to him but then I bet they do miss him at work too. Hope you are finding the cooking is going easy and it still tastes good too.

Loved the pictures!  Cliff sure looks great!  Looks like he'd never even had the surgery.  Glad you are getting so much help around the farm.
How scary to hear that growl!!  YIKES!!  What did Sadie do?
Love to you,
Pamela

Glad Cliff is still doing good. That is great that the neighbors are giving a helping hand with things. Buddy looks cute peeking around the door. Hope Sadie gets that mole. if not your yard will be all dug up LOL. That growl you heard this morning would make the hair stand up on the back of my head. Have a good night. Helen

  How great that things are getting better; "Into each life, a little rain must fall".
  It cheers your readers up to see the support group you have around you!  Thanks for all the pictures.
  I'll be following your dietary research ... when you start reading labels ... it can be a real shocker as to what is really in our favorite foods!
