I was up early this AM and not by design. I got a horrible leg cramp around 4:30 and hit the floor running/limping…whatever. Obviously, I didn’t drink enough water. I tried going back to sleep. After all, it was just 5, by then, so I crawled back into my still warm bed. I laid there. And I turned. And twisted. Alarm goes off. Wait, I didn’t set the alarm to go off. Grrr. Get up to stop alarm. Yes, I have to get up to do that. If it’s too close to the bed, I’ll turn it off and go right back to sleep. What can I say?
So, for the second…or is it the third?…time I get back into the bed. Think about what I have to get done today. Pray. Wonder where my phone is? Does it need charged? Did I return that call yesterday afternoon? Heck, I might as well get up. Make coffee. Stir up some oatmeal pancakes. Come on coffee. Do your thing! Uh oh. I feel and hear a familiar rumbling? Earthquake? Thunder? Nope. Trucks start coming through the farm.
Ah HA! Big Boss has been wanting some pics of the cattle loading up so I grab my jeans, boots, jacket and camera and tear out the front door. There were just four trucks as this was a small load going out. The sun is shining, no wind…perfect day for picture taking!! All except for the mud. Whoa, and it won’t let go once it’s on you. Don’t get me wrong. I am NOT complaining about mud. I love mud. Mud means that at some point it rained and well, we just haven’t seen a lot of that happening for a looong time! So, here’s what I saw…
I then headed home for more coffee and to make BB his stack of pancakes. Then #3 son breezed thru and left, BB came in to eat, truck driver came to back door, phone rang, #3 son came in again and left, text messages to answer from folks renting our lodge, more coffee, #2 grandson comes to show me his new glasses along w/his mom and baby bro. Phone rings. And now it’s lunch!! Yay for leftovers! (They thought they’d talk me into taking the cattle check over to the bank but I just kept quiet…I have a birthday cake to decorate so little girls can over to play this afternoon.) Later.
