Hooray for the much-needed moisture that arrived this past week! (Gotta stay positive, right?) Chances are, this last snowstorm and its cold temps were the last breath of winter. Hopefully, any future moisture will be accompanied by more seasonable temperatures!
Calving season is all but over, here on the Diamond S ranch. In a few short days, all of the snow will be melted away and the baby calves will be romping around in the greening pastures. With this sure sign of spring comes an unending "to-do" list of spring work to be done: brandings, farming, fencing, dragging fields, and so on. The dairy is buzzing, also, with calves to tend and a healthy amount of milk being produced. Kris continues to put in long hours of hard work to keep up with the supply and demand of the milk and all the yummy dairy products she creates with it.
As many of us become focused on our springtime to-do lists, let's remember to focus on the blessings that come with the season. The return of colors to the landscape and the warmth of the sun, new life, and a chance to "get outside and blow the stink off" (as my mother used to say), all help to make doing the to-do list a not-so-bad-thing to do. Have a nice spring everyone! — Linda
