We’re overrun with eagles this year and my photo isn’t terrific due to great distance between birds and me. We’ve got a lot of adults and juveniles who war for food, and, I would show you more photos but I can’t figure out how to upload them. Yes, it seems success is not to be mine tonight, at least, not more than once. Marcus, the computer genius who fixed my computer, has me on Internet Explorer now and I was on Chrome; it’s totally confusing as I have no tidy mind when it comes to computer stuff. I seem to wander all over the place, never getting much accomplished and have now been trying to update the blog for almost 3 hours. Yeah. Like I’ve got that kind of time…sigh. Dearest God, I do miss Dave for all kinds of reasons!
Weather has turned November’ish and it’s cold, windy, rainy, sleety and calling for 6 inches of snow tonight and more snow through Sunday. Next week it warms up and, as Mom likes to say, “It’s good pneumonia weather!” The horses have been fed, some turned into a small lot for grazing and Lightly is still in a short lot, receiving meds for tender feet. Everyone has safety, shelter, food and water for the night. One of my mantras is, “I prep during daylight so I can sleep at night” and, mostly, that’s true. There have been a few bitter nights that I’ve lain awake and prayed for the animals…for sheep lambing and cows calving, for my own animals. There are many nights I awake and pray for those whom God brings to mind but, generally, I sleep and sleep well due to the energy needed to get through the day.
Cutting this short…I’m hungry and still need to fix myself supper; the winner of the Food Network Magazine subscription is Madge of The View From Right Here. Congratulations Madge! I’ve sent you a PM and you’ve got 24 hours to send me your snail mail address.
