Slowing my life merry go round from 220 mph to a nice 55 mph!
Ok, so spud the kitty I rescued last fall/winter, who lost his toes from being caught in string under tenant's trailer, has long been healed up after the vet removed the bones that were left sticking out after his little toes rotted off. My hubby and I each went through a lovely -2 wks missed work-only left bed long enough to feed and care for cows-in which we had to nursemaid a new calf that died at 4 days old---FLU! Omg, we were literally bedridden. I've had plenty of pie orders, through the winter but working 40+hrs 2nd shift at hotel really took a lot out of me. Since I'm a morning person it was a long past year working 2nd shift and not seeing my hubby much. I gave notice at hotel to only work 2 day shift days a week starting in April as I've started making soaps, lotions, creams, shampoos, and conditioners (which I am in process of getting my business ins. And copyright to my name so I can sell them too). But the second wk of April the front desk manager at hotel landed himself on a lovely 3-4 wk vacation that was not optional after a visit to ER. So I worked his shift for him every day til he got back. I'm late getting my last chapter of my book to the publisher, ugh! And now I took in 4 --2 wk old kittens so people would not take them to SPCA. Feeding was every 3 1/2 hrs but as of this past Saturday they are all pooping and pooping on their own and using litter pan, they also eat from a dish now(although still standing/stepping in it most of the time). It's time to get garden planted, we just sent 11 calves to auction and just had 6 born in last 2 wks. My hubby got us a used D17 tractor so I can learn to help with fieldwork(my request) as tractors we have didn't have breaks if stalled and we farm all hills. I drove it for the first time the other day and got to back up our used but new to us cullipacker(spelling), unhook and drive over and back it down slope into the barn and park it! Yea! You can teach an old dog new tricks, lol🙀😜 also excited because I tried my first ever cold process soaps, a dark chocolate/vanilla mocha soap and a neroli and Shea blossom and cedar wood atlas essential oil soap with what is called a Taiwan swirl. I also have made a face cream I have been dying for since I can't find the carrot face cream I used to get from burts bees. But I like mine better! I will share my website soon with you all. Just tired, half way through the 2 yr transition of the "change of life" and I will be very ecstatic when hot flashes are done. Finally took time to cut my hair as it was driving me nuts in my eyes long......oh, I guess I will just add some pics now to go with all this update. Well, I will post them if I can figure out how from my iphone now.
