What's Up on Wednesday

This morning I was up early baking:

I made 9 dozen peanut butter chocolate chip cookies by 8, bagged up 4 dozen to distribute to the Vet, the brand inspector, the trucker, and our North Camp man:

And headed out to the pens to help tag calves

that we were shipping North:

before heading to town to pick up health papers at the vet's. That's all you get for pictures because I only have 2 hands and they were busy. :)

When I got home, I was tempted to sneak in a nap, but I made my way to my sewing machine to do a little stitching. I pulled fabrics for my Scrap Dance Two-Step Mystery Quilt:

And stitched up the first clue:

Then I simply could not make myself stay indoors for one more minute. The other night we had a hard frost and the sky has been this incredible shade of blue for the past few days:

And now, with 22 degree mornings, we are enjoying 75 degree afternoons and we are basking in it. I'm also basking in this:

DH cleaned out the horse pens a few days ago and this is a heavenly concoction of dirt, horse manure, and hay, and I am hauling it to my garden one wheelbarrow load at a time. This is golden stuff!

And now it's 3:00 and I'm wondering if I can still sneak in that nap!

Yes, by all means, you deserve that nap. I laughed when I saw that both of your hands were busy. Enjoy the natural horse's manna! The best thing a garden could ask for. ;^)

If you don't, I will! I feel so lazy when I read about your life! You re amazing!

Oh my gosh, I feel tired just reading your post, Karin! You are a bundle of energy. (I would definitely have opted for the nap.)

Sounds like quite a busy day Karin!! I love that picture of the blue sky/white tree. I hope you got that nap.
