Must be spring

Warm and a little wind… Chance and Cindy and I drove down to check cows and work on a water tank that has been running over.. the float arm had slipped where it hooks together.. them ol’ girls are sure cleaning up some old grass… had a saddle making apprentice show up about lunch time, so he worked on his saddle while I worked on one I am building.. we got in some good visiting.. solved half the worlds problems, at least! Looked down towards Tate and Kass’s and there were cows out…I started feeding towards evenings, to set the cows up when they star calving in a few weeks, so he left and I drove down in the pickup with two dogs.. Bit is a real wild child when it comes to working cows.. she needs more miles, but did do a good job of lying down when I told her to and could get her attention.. I need a small bunch of sheep to work her on and perfect her training, Peg Cindy’s dog is not a cow dog evidently, but then she is Aussie and to a year old and they take longer to mature, so who knows, she may make a cow dog yet…… we got the cows put back and discovered a gate that we left open, earlier… oh well, Bitty sure enjoyed it! Gabe and Arrabelle have State Wresting today so Gramma ad I are going down to watch and cheer them on in Rapid. I am sure we work as hard as them, while they have their matches…. looks like we got a chance at some rain in the next week.. sure beats snow.. but I will take any kind of moisture, as I really don’t have much say over it anyway…the calendar tells us it is now spring, but I think winter is going to try to come back at least once before it gives up the ghost..hope it stays cool long enough that we don’t get all the wild fruit blossomed out and then get a freeze, we haven’t had any wild plum jelly for a couple years now.. a neighbor lady is supposed to get me some wild grape sets that I can put out around all these rocks and see if the vines will grow up and around them… we have lots of scattered boards and stuff left over from the house build we need to get picked up, burnt and stored away, depending on whether it is something we can use or just fire wood.. we have several big tote bags filled up and I need conditions right so I can haul them to the dump and burn them.. wish we could put a regular wood burner in the house for heat, but it cost so dang much to do it up to code and if you don’t and you ever have a fire, the insurance won’t pay.. too bad these outdoor ones cost so much to set up… and about the time you got one set up you’d run out of extra wood to burn.. the neighbors have one but sounds to me like he can burn up a lot of wood and I don’t think he is too interested in this smaller odds and ends…
