Not Very Motivated

For some reason, not working encourages me to not be very motivated to start anything. But I have gotten lots of necessary stuff done in the few days I have been jobless. I saw on Jacquie's blog a flag quilt - which has me thinking of digging through my stash to do one of my own. Flags (and really anything Americana) are my undoing. I have a bunch of fabric left over from my red, white and blue block of the month quilt - I could put the leftovers to good use.

After last week in the 60's, we are back down in the high 40's. This weekend was just a constant light mist/drizzle - which made Tyler's soccer game depressing. But we survived, and he had fun, which is the most important part.

I started more seeds, cleaned my sewing/computer room, and am plugging away.

Last year around this rock, there were so many daylillies you could barely see the rock. So last September I dug them all up and transplanted them. I look out there today and . . .

...more daylillies. These things must never die.

Then my blackberry bushes are budding out. YIKES. We want to get them moved from here - this is our old garden, and I want to put them out in the open a little more. I guess this will be a project for Saturday or Sunday (if it's not raining:))

The cows are getting tired of mud, but so am I. They spend their days hanging out in the shed, or back behind it on the hill. No babies yet - but I'm not too worried about the 3 that are left - this will be calves 8 (for 2 of them) and 9 for the other one, so . . . . if they can't pop them out we have a problem here.

All in all, if the weather holds, we will have a busy week. Todd was home early tonight (6:00) but if there is no rain, it will be 9-10 before he gets home the rest of the week.

I'm off to help him attempt to rototill the garden (weed patch:))

I am working on a scrappy red white and blue quilt, too, just pecking away at it, I love it!

and thanks for the calf update, what is the count, now?

hope Jessie is getting used to the hobble!

Our cows gaze longingly out at the main pasture, away from the mud. (Come to think of it, so do I :)
But the grass is only just beginning to take on a hint of green here.
