It is absolutely beautiful today! The sun is shining, cold, but pretty outside! We had a wonderful worship service today. Of course you all know after service we head over to my MIL for a delicious meal. This is so much more than a meal, it is a time set aside to share with family and loved ones. Much discussion takes place, or should I say lots of conversation. We plan family vacations, our work week, long term plans, upcoming events, you name it! We cherish this time, and we all protect it. We love to be together and take an hour or so just to slow down and be a big happy family~with full stomaches!! lol I just can never say enough about my MIL and what she means to our family. She cooks this delish' meal and is never late for Sunday School. I don't know if I will ever be able to take care of my family the way she does?? I digress.......
After dinner today we had a fun job~ living on a farm involves taking care of animals, building fences, and much work, work and more work.....Sheila, being the city girl is not accustom to taking care of farm animals, or farm work for that matter...lol That would not be the case today, we have a baby calf that needed some mothering...it's mother is not feeding it, so it has to be bottle feed....please notice the pictures above.....Me, baby calf, Jensen (my nephew) the BIG bottle! I had fun feeding this baby, I guess mothers know how to care for "all" little ones, although we never had a bottle that size for my "little Ones" if you had that bottle there would be no need to wake up at 3 in the morning....We could fill it up and it would last them all night!!! Back to feeding the calf...job was acomphlished, and I left with one happy little calf following me and did you girlies notice my new black boots, as they say "You can take the girl out of the city, but can't take city out of the girl" lol
I hope you all have a fun, restful Sunday spent with the ones you love, on the farm~ in the city~by the ocean (Kat we are so envious of you) lol, or just laying around the house, enjoy your day!!!
