Greetings from Minnesota! It was a gorgeous day, with sunny skies and a cooling breeze.
Though I may not be as ready for summer as I think. My face is sporting a pink tinge, and my lips are true sun-burned red. Ouch! Before you start scolding me, I did put sunscreen on my face. And, I put on chapstick that I thought contained SPF. Apparently not. I need to get better at reading labels…
While I may not look too red to you, I can assure you my pale Scandinavian face doesn’t normally have cherry red lips or pink cheeks. 🙂
Anyhow, enough about my complexion. It was a very summery day on the farm, and we spent a lot of it moving calves around. We just moved between pens today, but tomorrow we’ll start moving some of the oldest calves from hutches to group pens.
To have an empty pen, we’ve got to move a group out, and then clean and re-bed the pen. And when we move out from hutches, they’ve got to be washed and then lined up into new rows with fresh bedding as well. Sometimes it seems like we’re always in some stage of moving animals around, which we probably are…
It’s hard to think about stopping and taking pictures when we’re busy, so sorry for the lack of photos in this post. I will definitely get some new pictures of spring (practically summer now) at the farm soon.
Nervous and excited pretty much sums up how I feel. Fargo is THIS WEEKEND. So, give me your advice. What are some words of wisdom I need to know for my first marathon??
Also, thanks for all the comments about the iPod. I think I will probably stash it in a pocket somewhere, and just not use it unless I really need a boost. With that said, what are your must-have running songs? I’ve got a pretty good mix, but I was lucky enough to win some goodies from Sam @ Walk A Mile in My Boots including a iTunes gift card. (Thank you!!) So, I can buy some new tunes. Thoughts?
Have a great night all!
