Not much new with the husband.  He had an appointment this past Monday with a pulmonary specialist because a teeny tiny nodule was found on his lung during one of the scans. Dr DeLaCasas is very thorough and sent the husband to get it looked at. So we met with Dr Henderson. First let me tell you she is a hoot! Not often does the husband say, man, I really like that doctor. She told us there was nothing to worry about regarding the nodule. Husband said he was sorry he didn't get to go back to her.  Yea, can't believe he said that either! I don't think he has anything else scheduled until his testing at the end of April.

Since the husband has been on leave from work, he's been a busy bee.  Despite all my efforts to make him rest, he would not comply. He has a monster to do list. And he sold some cows and calves which funded projects. That was like the perfect storm. The husband with time and money!  I think what we are most excited about are our new pens. We have actual swinging gates!!! It's still a work in progress but it's looking so good.

The load of panels/gates.

Removing old fence and pipe.

Spunky helping the guys. ;)


The alley

He also had the county install a longer culvert in our driveway. Will really help pulling in and out with a long trailer.  Tomorrow he has some gravel being delivered for the drive and mud holes.  See, he's been busy!  He over did it this past weekend though. Argh!

What else has been going on? OH! Ran another 5K this past Saturday. I won 1st in my age group and was the second overall female finisher! I was super excited. The husband was so proud of me. It was pretty awesome.

We've had more babies born. Will have to get good pictures to post soon.

Spunky Brewster is growing like a wild weed. :) She is a stinker.

I took this picture on our walk around the pasture. She turned a month old! 

I think that's about it. But I'm sure I'm forgetting something.

One last thing, I had a bunch of messages today after the Fort Hood shooting. I do still work on post but I actually left post early today. So I wasn't anywhere close when it occurred. Thankfully I didn't have to go thru another shooting on base. One was enough for me. Thanks to everyone that contacted me. I felt so loved. ;)

I thought of you as soon as I heard about the shooting. Thank you for posting. I would have worried until I heard from you!!!!!
The pens are NICE! Tell the guys that our farm is nest for putting some up. Although commuting to KY might be a little too much. Lol.

Glad to hear hubby is doing well. Spunky of course is just to adorable! I hope you keep her for ever! Our neighbors raise, I mean, HAVE cows. One went into labor yesterday afternoon. They pulled the calf with a FOUR WHEELER! Still would not come out. THey pretty much tortured the mama cow, and wound up SLITTING HER THROAT Length wise. She did not die instantly. She suffered clear to the end! TEARS! DUMB ASSHAT PEOPLE!

Glad to hear the husband is doing well! I didn't see him as being the "sit around and relax" type. :)
