So thankful for this opportunity!Before and after pics of my upper body workout! Empty straw cart, with Peanut the barn manager. Full cart with my pitchfork. I push it around the alleys to bed the cows. Then haul it back and fill for next day. Burning those calories and building muscles while getting paid! Really doesn't get much better. 😅Probably not the healthiest lunch ever, but cheap, tasty and fast. Frozen burritos with habanero mango salsa and greek yogurt on the side.Somehow taking Miss Bitty out to potty almost always ends up a much longer walk than is needed.

LOLAnother frozen burrito with greek yogurt and mango habanero salsa. Side of fresh broccoli with sea salt and dash of lemon.Last walk of the day. Birds were taunting poor Miss Bitty! She wanted to get them so bad!Morning walk. Told Miss Bitty that we were only going for 15 minutes. Well, little miss motivation kept me out there for 25! My legs are just so tired. I have almost 11,000 steps in already, and day not nearly over!If you are moving a cow through a narrow alley, pay attention to where your hand is!

Miss Bitty Mae doesn't really like to get wet!Happy Easter from Miss Bitty Mae and me!This job has given me some non scale victories that have nothing to do with weight loss. When I started two weeks ago and I picked up 50 pound bag of lime it was so heavy! And carrying a 25 pound bucket to spread along the stalls had me out of breath. Now that bag is still heavy, but not hard to handle. That bucket is no problem at all! Everything seems easier and I feel stronger every day. Now if I could only FIND my scale! 😀🐄It is cold and windy. We got a short walk in. Just look at that sky!Just noticed this, thought was interesting so stopped for picture.More follow the leader on this bright, chilly morning. The last thing I want to do when I get home after chores, is go wandering around looking for the best grass to eat, best spot to roll, or squirrels to chase! But every day I do it because she loves it! She nearly took me off my feet going after a squirrel. It's the closest I come to running! LOLMoose the barn dog. He is trying out his nobody loves me, pays attention to me or gives me treats! I am so abused! Don't let that face fool you, he is one spoiled pup. Even has a recliner in the office that nobody else can sit on. I firmly believe that dogs are meant to be a little spoiled!Sunset. Beautiful day, beautiful evening!My sweet son bought me a small washing machine so I don't have to go out to laundromat! It was here when I got home last night. Hauled that thing up the stairs myself (with Miss Bitty Mae at my heels). All the hard work at farm paying off! Awkward, but only 60 pounds. Now to make room and get it inside!This woods is part of Garman nature preserve. It's a beautiful place for hiking the trails. This is across the road down from my house. A herd of deer live in there. At least 10 that I counted. Almost every day around 3pm they come down into the field. So relaxing to just watch them. One morning as I was leaving at 4:30am they all came shooting out of my yard and back to the woods.Double rainbow! 🌈 Photo doesn't do it justice. Can't remember seeing one this bright before!Turkey chili, shredded cheese and Greek yogurt. Had with tortilla chips. Lasted breakfast, lunch and dinner! Oh, I added lots of Tabasco. It was delicious and filling, which is why it lasted all day. The one "bad" thing I have learned about my farm job, is that I can eat pretty much anything I want, and still get smaller. Have no idea what I weigh right now, but had to tighten my belt to keep my pants up! 😀 Really do need to find my scale!Took @SHOAPIE advice and laid in grass with Miss Bitty Mae on our walk! This is her saving mom from bumblebee. She enjoyed laying on my chest and standing on me until then! The sun felt so good! Then that darn bee had to ruin it! 🐝Moose acting goofy for a treat!My job satisfaction! All clean and perfect. Doesn't matter that 5 minutes after I bring the girls back in, it will be a mess. I get to make it right again tonight. Just remember, happy cows are from Wisconsin! 🐄🐄🐄🐄🐄It was fun to see this flashback price! I did have 55cent discount, but still . .Moose pretends to be Snoopy! LOL

Miss Bitty and I decided it doesn't bother us and went for a walk. As we were coming back to the house we were rewarded by the deer coming out of the woods for us to see!It's a boy!! Just another reason I love my life now. He is so cute!This morning's new baby, Samson!This is Charlie, the calf from other day, with one of his friends. They are not related, but both have hearts on their foreheads!The old silo at my place. The birds go in it (swallows I believe) and when they sing in there it sounds really cool. Wish you all could hear it! 🌻I promise not to bore you with pictures of ALL the babies, but thought this guy from yesterday was cute! Love the little dot on his forehead. One more girl yesterday, and a girl this morning!This little girl came a few days early. Her name is Darlina!While I am at it, this guy was born this afternoon!

She had two cheeseburgers for her birthday dinner. Now for her pumpkin cinnamon frozen yogurt! Happy Birthday Miss Bitty Mae! I love this dog! 💖💖💖And there you have it! Song has been stuck in my head for days.Last night's sunset. Yes those clouds brought the rain that was needed.Just look at all those dandelions! Found a recipe for dandelion jelly. Supposed to taste like honey and lemon. If I don't get to it, fine! There is always next year. LOLToday was a total lazyfest. Did nothing at all productive. 😀 At least not productive like cleaning or anything like that. I walked Bitty, played with Bitty, fed Bitty, petted Bitty, napped with Bitty. She is working on her dental treat now.Not sure what Miss Bitty Mae does to get so tired out! LOL Maybe it's just the comfy bed that makes her want to sleep! LWeather is totally yuck!! Rainy, dark, cool.
On the positive, new calf this morning, took Miss Bitty Mae for a little walk after work. I feel great, so life is good!She says now! I said no!This afternoon was much better than this morning. Another calf born healthy! Took Miss Bitty Mae for her car ride and a walk. She is happy now. LOL
