A Trip to the Ranch

Just watching movies on TV that I have PVR'd, and hubby is knitting, so I thought I would do a blog post or two (or three?).

The first weekend of April, I decided I needed to get away for a couple of days, and hubby didn't really feel like going with me, and I had a few days off (not scheduled) work, so I decided to head out. I had a great 2 days away, that I very much enjoyed.  I think Anker enjoyed his time alone, too.

After seeing the movie Noah (which I reviewed on here...), I left around 7:30. After finding out at the edge of town that I forgot my purse, I went home and started out again. Got in around 9:30, just in time to go to bed.

Sunday was a nice day. I helped Mom make Cadence's birthday cake, and went out to the lambing pens. Went to church, came home, ate lunch and had birthday tea. Put a sort of out of control fire and had supper and then had a nap, as I was going to help Vienna with the night shift (lambing doesn't take a break). This year, they did things a bit different for the night shift. They usually have one person who does the nights, but this year, that person wasn't available, so my siblings took three-4 hour shift stints. Vienna's was the middle shift 11-3am. I took my laptop, and watched some Big Bang Theory, and helped her with what needed to get done. I think I am getting citified. I have forgotten pretty much everything about country living...lol. I had a bath, and went to bed. Just hung out in the morning, and left around 12.

Here are some pictures from the wknd:
