TEKA RANCH - WHERE THE FUN NEVER ENDS - MAY 22, 2017 - MONDAY
We awoke to sunshine and blue skies. I filled the clothesline with laundry. I'd been waiting for a nice day to do the wash. I had thought I would be able to wash some windows, but around noon, clouds began moving in again. That and the wind made it feel pretty chilly. We got a few light sprinkles this afternoon, but the main clouds were south of here.

Terry took Dandi to Vicki's early this morning for a shave and a haircut. Then he and Darwin went to the Alibi in Gary for breakfast and coffee with the guys. Terry brought the rest of the hamburger home from the locker. If anyone would like some good hamburger, we have plenty.

Poor me stayed home this morning. Besides washing clothes, I did chores and caught up on bookwork. I have been trying to do an hour's worth of bookwork every Monday.

Last fall we dropped the bottom 2 wires of the fence around the little pasture. Today Terry stapled them back up. He called to tell me about Winona and Ismay, the only 2 cows out there. He told me that they have been reaching under the 2 top wires to get the grass on the other side of the fence. There is all kinds of grass inside the fence, but they have eaten the grass on the other side all along the fence. I guess those 2 are proving that the grass really is greener on the other side. Terry also made the observation that the deer are eating the aronia bushes that he planted last spring.

I baked honey-oatmeal bread making it the main course for supper. M-m-m- fresh bread with butter and honey or butter and jelly. So good!

Since Bertha and Goober seemed to be getting along just fine, we moved them to the catch pen at the end of the shelter belt this evening.  Goober was so excited to be out of the pen in the shed, she ran and ran. If all goes as planned, we will turn them out with the others tomorrow.

This old bird should hatch some eggs by the end of the week. A friend had ferilized eggs, so we got them to put under this clucky hen.

Malachi 4:2 But for you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings. And you will go out and leap like calves released from the stall.

Goodnight! Kathy, Terry, and Dandi
