At the first hint of sunshine, Tobi and I took a walk.
It was windy, naturally.
We meandered on over to the cattle yard, to see the new babies that have been born.
We tried to be sneaky, but were quickly found.
After our little windy walk, I put Tobi back on the deck and followed Country Man around as he moved the bulls into another yard. I am always in awe of the bulls; the way the remain so laid back until they’re forced to move, in which they begin fighting and charging. It’s a constant battle for dominance, usually displayed through the loudest bellowing or strongest charge. And then they get bored and eat or sleep.
The bulls headed straight toward the lone bale a momma and calf once occupied. Apparently some tension built while being pushed into a new location.
As Country Man and another country man moved cows and babies into the area the bulls once relaxed, I walked around to admire the day and natural enclosing. A sunny day brings freedom to your soul; a soul that once felt as if it was sinking under the weight of winter.
You see, being a stay-at-home wife can be tough for this gal. It’s been a learning process of maintaining peace, but I’m getting there. It’s not so hard to do this when I can spend all day outside, surrounded by cattle and geese and pheasants and deer and the birds.
In the meantime, and soon to come, I have will have both of those options and not only the latter. Because summers a comin’ …
… soon! And while spring brings in hope and renewal, summer’s reliable warm temps bring in much time to be spent outside, camping and gardening and hanging clothes up on the line and walking barefoot in the grass and riding the four wheeler through the pasture to check calves.
Yup, lots of fun to come as consistent warm temps approach. So tell me, please … What are your favorite summer memories or upcoming plans? How do you most like to spend the time?
