Apparently it has been 5, yes five, months since I managed to write a post. There are a few blogs I read once in awhile and am always impressed by anyone who can come up with something interesting to write AND actually sit down and write it on a regular basis! Maybe me, someday, in another life.
Occasionally, I think "wow, this has been a fun/crazy/note worthy day I should write a blog post" unfortunately by the time what has to be done is done I'm more than ready to call it a day. Apologies to anyone who has insomnia; let's just say we can't feel your pain.
So a few kid pictures since September. For some reason the majority of pictures on my computer are of bulls and cows. For anyone who is already checking out our sale catalogs I will spare you looking at the same cattle again. Although Jeff has become quite the photographer - taking pretty much all of the pictures of the Sackmann & JR Ranch bulls you will see in publication. He even has some pictures in a big time semen catalog this spring!
Of course we are three weeks away from the spring bull sale. Jeff and I did all the catalog design and layout by ourselves this time around. Big project and kinda cool to see it show up in the mail.
Spring calving is 2/3 done. Fields are looking like they may want to wake up; making Jeff switch from winter mode to crazy need to do lots of things all at once spring mode. Must be the end of February. The flowers coming up in the yard say it may be spring soon.
Hope this finds everyone well. And once again I promise we are keeping busy and continuing to chase kids, animals, water, machinery & whatever else crosses our path!
