I am a 40ish girl who absolutely loves her life! I am blessed beyond all imagination - that doesn't mean times are always easy - but they are always do-able! My husband is so stinking cute!!!...and my kids are the greatest, I really like them a lot! We run our Century ranch together as a family, we put up our own hay, raise hereford/angus cross cattle, and do all the ranch work together as a family, with the help of "Papa", and our friendly neighbors. I love being a homemaker, helper, friend, mother, wife, coffee drinker, and stall mucker! Sometimes though - things happen around here that "I didn't sign up for"! Sometimes they are funny, sometimes not......

little bit of this.....little bit of that.....

ugh....been sick lately - migraine and other troubles....this momma is not used to be down so it's been pretty rough.

Good news though - babies are dropping all over the place.  The heifers are starting to calve now so it's time for all of those fun nightime checks! lol - really it's not so bad, it's pretty peaceful when you're able to get up at midnight and three am and sneak the truck out to look at the momma's.  We haven't had any problems yet, which is such a great thing.  Shannon bought some really awesome heifer bulls last year and it looks like they did their jobs well!
Basketball is over now, so it's time to work, work, work, with the 4-H steers.  The kids are pretty excited about their picks this year.  I think Colten Ben's is going to be a really good one.  Our judge is Jeannie Yardly from the mid-west.  She came out last year and did a really good job for us.  I know it's a while away - September - but fair time is always the Best time of year!

Time Flies.....

I once saw a stamp with this saying on it:  Times fun when you're having flies! (and there were two frogs on it)......Well, that may be true, but Time flies when you're having fun too!

Too long since my last blog....need to get better about that.  We are starting to calve here...already have 12 on the ground (only 388 to go!).  The #2 bull got out and I guess he did some business before we got him back in!  LOL

Things are going to get really busy in the next few weeks, so we're going to steal away for the weekend.  We don't really get much family time away from the ranch, so I'm really excited to have them ALL TO MYSELF!!!  No equipment, dogs, Papa, cows, - nothing - to take away their attention!  ;)  That makes this momma happy.

Our middle boy - Colten Ben - turns 16 tomorrow!  After his basketball game he's going to head to town (klamath falls) to go bowling with friends.  Can you believe that?  He wants to do something with his friends,,,,not his momma and daddy!  The nerve of that 16 year old boy!  hmph.
oh well....hehe....I know he'll have a good time.  Then we'll be leaving friday morning to head somewhere - we're not quite sure yet....just somewhere where it might be warm and where we can have some adventures!  I'll let ya know how it went!!!
