A rancher's Valentine :)

I've tried for nearly a week now to upload pics of my Valentine's day present with NO luck. Most people think Valentine's day is all about chocolate, flowers, really mushy cards professing your undying love for one another.....Well, my present was SO much more than that! :) My sweet husband and I bought each other a pasture renovator! I wanted to include pics because you really just can't quite grasp the whole romantic feel without seeing it being pulled behind our tractor.....burying all 8 shanks in the ground.....ripping slits through our pasture......and the thought of how it's going to improve our pastures.....whew! It's enough to make a girl light-headed! ;) I'll get pics on here as soon as I can figure out what the deal is......

We're going to be pretty busy from now winter. Now that the weather is getting better, I'm going to be outside pretty much 24/7. Right now we're in the middle of plowing up the hay field behind our house. We're going to be sprigging Tifton 85 shortly, and we have to get it ready. So, if you need me, I'll be on the tractor all day. :)

I did it!!!!

I still can't believe that I did this....I've always wanted to donate to Locks of Love, and Tuesday I went and got all of my hair cut off!!!! I've been growing it out for a while, but I was starting to get daily headaches...not to mention the fact that I've had my ponytail hung in a barb wire fence, I roll it up in my seatbelt every time that I forget to put it over my right shoulder, I shut it in the top of my truck door every time that it's windy outside....I could go on and on. My husband was the one that wanted me to grow it long (and everyone knows that I would do ANYTHING for him!) but once he saw that it was actually getting "dangerous", he thought that the following haircut would be cute on me.........SO..............Here is my experience. (Pics courtesy of my sweet, loving, awesome husband.)
Signing in....Nervously :)

A little freaked out, honestly.....

The side view.....I can't BELIEVE how much lighter it feels!!!!

My adoring public :)

Well, I'm far. We've survived the stomach virus and the flu in the past couple of weeks....It's SO good to feel good again!!!! Yesterday morning started off pretty cool, but it ended up being a gorgeous afternoon. We got a half inch of rain Sunday night, but we still need more. The grass situation is pretty much non-existent. We've been feeding hay & cubes, alternating daily between the two.

I went to get a ton of cubes yesterday, and this is what I came home to.....It's so nice to be wanted! :)

Everyone was SO happy to see me! ;)

This was my workout for the day! :) I miss my husband SO much on these days! When he's here, I throw bags down from the truck and he stacks. He stacks perfectly in the barn....It always looks so nice.

This is my stacking job.....not NEARLY as good as his, but I got it done! :)
