*sigh*

So, obviously I’ve been absent lately.

I was working…

A LOT.

Ugh.

Well, actually, I love my job (Labour & Delivery Nurse)…but I work 12 hour shifts and by the time I drive in from the farm it makes for a LONG day. And I managed to schedule myself for 4 shifts in 6 days. Silly me.

And when I work, the rest of the world comes to a screeching stop. Literally. Dishes are piled, laundry is embarrassing and groceries are few and far between.

I feel sorry for my family.

But they manage and once the shifts are done, I usually have a long stretch off and can usually get our life and home back on track. So I apologize for a lack of posts and socialization…

I miss you all. But….

Hopefully I can get back to posting…I have so many posts in my head to share!!

Love you all!

p.s. Oh ya….one other reason I have been dragging my rear is that I am pregnant…again…. :)

What we’ve been up to….

So we’ve been busy little bees around here….

Ok, my husband has.

It’s seeding time!!!

Which means he’s been putting in 14 to 16 hour days, and we’ve been missing him a lot!

But it’s got to get done, and it’s only a few weeks of this….

Then it’s spraying time, haying time……

Sigh.

Anyways…
Here are a few pictures of what we’ve been up to…

This is the girlie playing Snow White…

(yes, this picture is totally random, but she made me laugh…)

My poor tired farmboy….still in his jammies but determined to go!

My husband took this picture….

Prairie chickens (?) on our front lawn…

Our new to us truck…my darling husband and neighbours built it from the frame up….

Not too bad!

Loading fertilizer into the air-seeder…

(ignore my precious, tiny, breakable daughter up on the top…my husband took  this picture! Yikes!)

 

And that’s it, that’s all!

Yesterday we processed some heifers and did a little branding…I took pictures, I’ll post some later!!

Love ya all!!!

Inspiration…

I’ve been dragging my rear in regards to getting out and doing yard work.

The WIND!!!

But I’ve finally got motivated and raked leaves.

To have them blow back two minutes later.

The WIND!!!

Anyways….

Here are some GORGEOUS farmhouses to motive me and you (?!) this spring, to get out there and make things beautiful!

Bathroom Inspiration…

It’s a little moody, a little gothic with a dash of glam…

I like it!

Out here in the sticks….

Here are a few images of what we’ve been up to over the last few weeks…
Here is the girlie out feeding chop to some of the steers…

And a visitor we had a while back…

And the girlie’s cow had a calf….so of course we had to tag it….

(can you tell which one she made?!)

And we discovered an owl’s nest in the cow pasture….

(see it?)

And the girlie has learned to drive….

(totally 100% her dad’s idea….)

And we’ve had a few ( around 130 so far!) babies too….

Hope your week is going great….mine has been fabulous…

The gorgeous girlies of the Junk Gypsy Co. are gearing up for the big wedding and still have time for a shout out for little ol’ me!!!

Feeling lots-a-love from the blogging world this week!!! Thanks all for the comments and feedback!!!!

Love…

ME!
