Working dogs!

Well, we had a fun weekend. It was nice to get things done, but also hang out.

Saturday we started with the a little bit of sleeping in, breakfast and then moved the bulls out to paradise. (In with their ladies). We pulled them off a couple months back and fed them up, now it's time for them to get back in business. They should be ready.
We took the dogs. Sage is getting her lessons in riding in the back of the truck and doing wonderful. She is so fearless. When we get to going 60+ Junior hides under the tool box. Not Sage. She has got her head hanging out the side. She is so much like Ace it is scary. (Just personality wise). She is a mess pot!

Ready to work!

Looking through the binoculars
We spent alot of time looking for the cows. We finally found them and got the bulls turned out.

This was not a very good picture, but it was a cool site to see them trailing in toward us. We have a mixture of colors with this herd. They are red and yellow, black and white and all precious in my site! Love them babies!

I also wanted to brag on my cute husband a little bit. I had a rough go at supper last night. Sometimes I just feel inadequate in the kitchen. Even though he might put his 2 cents in every once in a while, he always eats what I cook and says, "That was a good supper, thanks Mandie."
But last night, I didn't make enough noodles for the spaghetti and so I had to start another batch. Then I burnt the garlic bread in the oven. (Not to mention putting bombs in the microwave earlier at lunch, long story).  So, I through a little temper tantrum (totally called for) and then went in the kitchen to start another batch of bread.
For a side note: the dogs love when I cook. They get all the left overs and screw ups! They love my cooking!
So, to finish the story... I got supper finished and it was wonderful. The best spaghetti I have made to date. Everything turned out all right. Plus, I fell in love with my husband a little bit more. He told me after dinner, "I just don't know how you do it. You go to work and work beside me (sometimes) and then come home and cook and take care of the house."
Lets just say it feels so good to be appreciated and loved! Mmmm... he's so good!

I also wanted to show the work he's done on his spurs. He had started making a pair of spurs for the past couple of months, off and on when he has time. He has got more done since this picture (and I'll get one to update) and still has yet to put a button on. He also wants to do the silver work, but doesn't know how to do that yet. He is so talented!

We worked a little on the tile this weekend as well. We got some done, but it is still hard to see the end in sight. The weeks are just flying by so fast. It'll be tough to reach our my goal, but I so want to be in before planting season. We will get nothing done then.
It will be hard to move from our house where we are. I love the trees and grass we have going. It is so beautiful. We enjoyed Saturday afternoon in the shade playing with the dogs. Sage played in the sprinkler for 20 minutes and was sopping wet. She loves the water so much. And Bobby and I played some washers and then lay in the hammock for a little bit. It's good to just enjoy the days a little. They go by so fast.
Plus, I don't think people these days enjoy life in slow motion anymore. It's all about the go go go... more more more... for me simple is better!

Have a great Monday!
