This is out Thanksgiving weekend, and we are busy here getting ready for winter. Tomorrow will be setting up for weaning , but as there is so much going on, with family dinners, and I have an early appt with my rheumatologist on Tuesday I decided to wait till next weekend when I will be home more , and actually Martin will be home next Monday as well to help out if things get goofy. Am I worrying too much? probably but I learned a long time ago to trust my instincts. They are not always right on the money but if it "feels " like a bad idea, I assume it is . Still we can get the pens set up and get things ready , and I will have help tomorrow to do this so...
And help I do need, my left arm is in pretty rough shape (hence the appt with rheumatologist ) severe arthritis in the elbow as a result of a fall, and I have recently been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis as well, so off to see the wizard, so to speak! Though on the upside, I learned a new trick due to my sore arm. I needed to take a salt block out to the cows, they weigh about 50 lbs and are awkward as heck! I was standing looking at it thinking I needed to either wait for help, or it was gonna hurt! then it occurred to me that the block would fit nicely into an empty mineral pail, I rolled it in and viola! I had a handle! was able to lift and carry it with my good arm! Necessity is truly the mother of invention!
Anyhow, on to the pictures !

There you go, we have good weather still, not super hot, but pretty nice for fall here in Alberta . Hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving and is mindful of all of the blessings life brings. And as always my friends, Stay safe!
