With two public holidays starting this week,
and children returning to school Wednesday,
it's been an ongoing dilemma
simply knowing what day of the week it is.
Children donning sports shirts this morning
made it so much easier for me to realise it is indeed Friday.
This week has seen some weaning take place
with babies unsettled,
still searching furtively for Mama.
Sale heifers were brought home from Chabo.
These are two of three destined for a stud female sale in July.
Beautiful Priscilla has had a sore foot and is currently un-milkable
due to a penicillin injection with a fourteen day milk witholding period.
All enjoying black tea at the moment.
Meanwhile, cows and calves are showing signs of the wonderful season we've enjoyed.
with even fatter calves.
And then, just because
is so much more enjoyable than
mopping floors, washing clothes
or spraying weeds,
I did just that,
with camera in hand.
These red potted roses needed to be watered for the first time this year.
Further evidence of the incredible rainfall this Summer.
This long weekend we head back to Bottle Tree Creek, cross-branding cows that became ours today, sorting equipment to come home and revelling in the excitement of our new purchase.
Here's to short weeks and long weekends.
