Calves in no rush to arrive

It was one month yesterday (March 11) that my first calf arrived.
I still have seven left and, unfortunately, they are going to take their own sweet time!
At least the weather is more forgiving and that takes a bit of the pressure off!
Once the calves are done, we will be close to the due dates of the lambs. But at least I have room to put them all in the barn and can keep a close eye on them with the barn cameras.
Maddie and Marlee were able to spend the day with me Friday since it was a P.D. Day. It was a great day and since the girls hadn’t been out for a while, they had a lot of calves to catch up on!
We also did some crafting and had a busy day with company (hopefully the company didn’t mind the crayons, bristle board, and food everywhere).
It’s like the saying: “We will clean it up tomorrow; we are busy making memories today!”

I do think we all will agree that this weather is much more enjoyable!
Too bad the time change made me feel incredible lazy all day Sunday. Losing an hour in already interrupted sleep really was hard on me!
I still don’t know why we can’t just leave our time well enough alone—one way or the other!

It’s hard to believe it’s already mid-March! The time is flying by and I will be back at the Emo Agricultural Research Station in a few short weeks.
I am so thankful for all the partnerships and potential ones that are slowly forming. I think we have a tough battle ahead of us to keep the station open, but it is nice to see the support to date.
I’m still open to suggestions for the upcoming year so if you have something in mind that you would like to see grown, get in touch with me.

The Rainy River Stewardship Committee once again is selling red pine and white spruce tree seedlings. If you are interested in getting on the list, give me a call and let me know what you would like (leave a message if I’m not in).
They come in bundles of 20 for $5.

It looks to be a great week weather-wise for March Break! I hope everyone can get out and enjoy the milder days since it sure has been a long, cold winter!
“Roxee” and I even might be able to start back on our walking trail—the challenge is to keep Roxee off the rabbit trails that have moved into the end of our driveway!
