On Saturday more roping ensued in the morning
and queso, salsa, and fajitas were served up to friends that evening as a good night of UFC fights had us sitting on the edge of our seats.
Sunday morning found us back in the roping arena by 6 am - see a cycle here? :)
Apparently my hands are soft because I now sport an attractive cluster of blisters from running the chute and pulling the rope on the gate.
I am on a mission to have hubby make a new gate that does not weigh a ton, but I love being out here when the boys rope. The sweet girl from North Camp snagged this shot:
He also fixed up a spot for our girl to sit while waiting for the boys to bring the cattle back up the alley:
DH smoked chicken and pork loin on Sunday and that, along with the weekend's leftovers, will keep us fed for days. I welcome the sabbatical from kitchen duties as I'm falling behind on mowing duties. :)
I mowed some the other day and ran into something unexpected:
Oops. I've been letting the chickens free range for a few weeks and apparently someone just couldn't make it back to the coop in time. :) Sorry about the quality of these photos - just snapped them all quick with my phone.
Sunday afternoon found us napping off our dinner and settling in for another round of UFC fights in the evening. We watch almost no television, but UFC fights are something we sure enjoy. I know. It always surprises people to know that I am a UFC fan.
It was a good weekend. Today I'm heading to the sale barn and then I have a date with my pillow long about 8 this evening...earlier if I can get away with it.
