These are a few things that just made my week. I hope you enjoy and do share about your week in the comments if you like.
The Friday Favored: 2nd edition
1. my Farmer says:
Two baby calves were born this week!…and he didn’t have to help!…subsequently, neither did I!!
Therefore, parturition being so flawless this week, he finished our new barn wood kitchen countertop. Because he’s just that awesome…when the bovine shenanigans don’t demand his attention.
Their demands carry more weight than my kitchen countertop project…about 1000 pounds worth.
Not a hint of bovine shenanigans throwing their weight around anywhere near this gorgeous barn wood countertop…except for that sirloin we ate last night. 😉
2. They said it well:
- Robyn over at The Ranch Wife Chronicles went into detail about calving book terminology.
Why should I rewrite the information when it’s already been written so well?
Have a look at her post – there are laughs involved. It’s true – postpartum is a bonafied bovine shenanigan.
- Dara doesn’t watch Tyler Perry films. I may have parked in the comment section of this one. There are all sorts of enjoyable, thought-inducing reads here.
- Jent was aggravated by an FFA Advisor – I trust her understanding of the context of the comment enough to feel a bit of aggravation over it and to appreciate her response.
I find all sorts of good ideas at Kristen’s Taming Rapunzel blog. This week I tried this updo:
My hair is shorter, brunette and straight, but it did this just fine, and it was so much simpler to do than it looks.
I also like a Messy French Twist guest post at her site. I never thought I’d see the day that 5 large pins would hold all my hair in place all day with comfort and snugness like a ponytail holder…but oh so much more style. Thanks for Taming Rapunzel, Kristen!
4. Southern Whereabouts:
Last week we wondered about where this lovely stained glass lives:
It’s at the train station in Montgomery, Alabama.
5. my Farmer suggests reading:
Drovers Magazine is a staple cattle industry publication around here. In the January 2014 edition there is an article about allergies to meat: Are you allergic to your ribeye?
In this article, author Suzanne B. Bopp briefly explains and explores a beef and pork allergy caused by ticks. It’s a fast and informative read.
The weekend is looking lovely with some rain on Sunday…I love a good rain on Sunday. Hope you have a good one with spring showers and late winter naps for all!
How was your week?
