Yesterday was still warm at 62° when we got up....the cold front is coming though. I can tell by the winds!
Wednesday is Feeder sale at the area sale barn. We still have some to load and take in. The loading went smoothly. DH gets them into the holding area and I use the gate on the quarter circle pen to push them into the alley and he moves them along into the trailer. Every time we do this, we appreciate all over again the set-up we have for working and loading. It makes our lives so much simpler. It was worth every penny it cost. My Dad used to say you needed the right tool for the job and this is the right tool for us.
I was sitting in the truck while DH was picking up our check. I always get a kick out of watching everyone coming out the door reading their check stubs where it lists the cattle sold,weights, prices and who bought them. Everyone does it.
This is a state of the art sales arena. We are so lucky to have it so close. We know one of the owners; he lives fairly close to us.
This is a side view of the area.
We unload the cattle on this side.
You see all types here from the little rigs to the bigger rigs; from old beat up trucks and trailers to this:
and then the really big rigs.
It was another very good sale day for us and we are grateful!
We stopped at the bank on the way home, then to the library to drop off books and pick up two they were holding for me. We are blessed with a new very fine library which is a branch of the Springfield-Greene Co. Library. Next was the post office and then the local market.
It was time for me to move all the furniture in the living room to sweep under everything; and, optimist that I am, I re-arranged things again. We are liking it for now but will probably put it all back like it was soon. It is a near impossible room to arrange furniture in...4 doors and a wood stove at one end!
At least it is nice and clean now.
The cold front has arrived; we could feel it getting colder late in the evening; I will not be gardening outside until it passes!
No time outside.
