Happy Friday Friends,  Well the day has flown by with my usual adventures-going to garage sales with my friend, cleaning the house and then going shopping.  The only difference is that hubby is away so I'm not in a big rush.  Of course pampering our Reggie is at the top of my list too.  Hubby gave him a gentle talking to yesterday and said not to do anything while he was gone and firmly told him that he wanted to see him when he got back. 
This weekend our oldest daughter and her family will be readying the pasture for the calf they will be getting next week.  They have to put up electrical fencing and such so I think I'll be helping them with that.  After all, one-third of the cow is ours.  Since it is a cow for meat and not milk, the children have been told it isn't a pet and that they can't name it or get attached to it.  However, one grandson has quite the sense of humor so he thinks they should name it Ms. Steak but I suggested "Yummm" or maybe "Dinner".  O.k. most of you know I'm a big animal lover so I'm going to try to not get too attached to her.  We'll see.
With our temp's being in the high 90's, I have not been bike riding in a week or so.  Even going on my morning walk first thing makes me sweat.  Sleeping with the a/c on as well.
Have a fun filled weekend.
Hugs, Noreen


  1. Thanks for stopping in! :-) It's hot everywhere, isn't it! I hung two sets of sheets on the line and it took them forever to dry today, the humidity is so high!

    How exciting for them to get a calf. Good luck on not getting attached to it. I was going to get chickens until a neighbor did, one of her chickens is very sick, and my first thought was to take it to the vet.

  2. Your grandson has a cute sense of humor! Stay cool!!!

  3. Oh, I do love a multi-faceted Friday that includes shopping!

    We had a cow years ago for the same "yummy" reason. The kids called him Bambi. Good night!!! Well, we ate Bambi anyway :)

    Stay cool!

  4. Sounds like you are enjoying your "free" weekend.....
    It's very hot in NC too.......

    A cow, what fun......good luck on not getting attached.....hahahahha

    Hugs and blessings,

  5. Hugs to you Nor! Glad you got to have some fun today!! I left you a voice mail. I'll try to get in touch with you again tomorrow!
    Love ya to the moon!

  6. I went to four garage sales this morning and they were I just came back home (o:

  7. Hi Noreen! Thanks for your note today. It brightened my morning. :) Sure hope you and your family have a wonderful weekend. It's been over 100 degrees here, and the heat index was 113 yesterday. Trust me, the humidity is not doing anything for this huge hair! pOoF! LOL Beth Moore said once, "There's a reason why it's only a one-letter difference between humiDity and humiLity." I have to agree.
    Anyway, take good care, and try to stay cool. our water heater went ka-put, but I told the kids, "Look at it like this, it's so warm in the house (Because the A/C has a hard time cooling the house when it's so hot outside) that it'll feel like you're playing in the water sprinkler, trying to cool off, even though you're REALLY trying to take a shower!" They didn't think it was so funny though! haa.
    Oh well. maybe time to boil some water on the stove. Just kiddin'.
    Love and hugs,
