Nearly here – weekly shabbat – so thankful our Creator made such for us. Of all the 10 commandments, the fourth one is relatively easy to keep (remember) in our culture. I’m tired! Lack of sleep from allergies and just the constant fighting it makes my body exhausted all the time. Keeps me from being productive to be sure.
Eleven cows of the seventeen selected have been recorded in standing heat as of 6pm today. There are a more who are shoving and being restless, so they will likely come in sometime before tomorrow.
Other than going to town to pickup kleenexes, drop of some papers at NRCS, swing by the bank for a quick visit with Tom Morris about his grandparents being the last caretakers of the Linn County Rest Home, located just a mile west of Linneus on Infirmary Hill, then to Twin Oaks Produce for a handful of groceries. Had a nice visit with Fran Graff, whose daughter is also teaching in Dubai, though at a different school than our daughter.
Rick continues to take care of my cows on the farm north and west of Purdin – It will another month before I can stay outside for more than a few minutes at a time. Will my cows forget me!?
