The photo is a sunrise scene from a few weeks ago.

Yesterday was a usual type day.  I got up at 4:30 to eat breakfast and get ready to go out for chores.  The temp was in the 20's when I headed to the barn.  No wind.  A very nice morning, though a bit slippery for walking.  

We weaned 10 calves the other day and that means 10 less calves for me to feed bottles to now.  I can handle that.  The calves all drank well.  Our dog, Lefty, followed me around hoping for an ear scratching, and the cats loitered here and there waiting for warm milk.

After chores I had coffee and checked Facebook and this blog.  After lunch my husband asked me to ride along to a nearby town to get a part.  Well, the part wasn't there so we came home again.  I then worked on taking down the Christmas tree.

Before long it was time to watch the late afternoon news.  Then it was time for calf chores again.  Supper was leftovers.  Then it was time to think of something to blog about.  And, that ended the day.
See you tomorrow.

Happy Wednesday!
Stay safe and well.

That sounds like enough to keep your day busy :)
We used to get up around 5am when we were milking - I don't miss that part of country living!

A day with no excitement can be good...just an ordinary day.
