So sad

I am so sad, we had a calf that a friend brought us on Wednesday. They found it in the field, not sure who the momma was. We were guessing she was about 2 days old. She was so skinny, we have been bottle feeding her. Had to give her a shot and stuff. Then since yesterday was she breathing harder again and just didn't seem to be doing as well. This morning she got another shot and stuff. When we checked on her she was
still hanging in there. We went out a little while ago to give her another bottle and she was dead. I am so sad. I know there was a good chance she wouldn't make it, but it just makes me feel so bad and keep thinking maybe there was something else I could have done.

I love long weekends!

Now if I can figure out how to make them slow down!
At least today I feel like I am getting some things accomplished.
I have all the prizes done for the crop. Pretty much know what the
raffles are going to be and the big door prize. I have 7 new ones so
far this time. Woohoo! It's really grown, my first one had 6 attending,
the last one 28 and the final count isn't in for this one yet!
Alec is working on the back patio and about has the ceiling done.
Tonight we are grilling, burgers, brats, dogs. I am thinking I need
to saute some mushrooms and have a mushroom swiss burger - mmmmm!
I have some other things I need to get done this week,
reports for the fire dept and stuff, but maybe tonight.
Life is good!

Things have been busy as usual! We were out of town for several days...went to Colorado, visited Alec's aunt and uncle in Colorado, we also rented a cabin. It was really nice and peaceful. The dogs thought they were pretty cool barking at a moose, until it started charging them. They ran to the porch and finally the moose stopped in the driveway a bit from the cabin. LOL!
Of course the vacation came to an end and back to real life - sigh.
I do have alot coming up though; fundraiser, a crop, CKU in KC, just to name a few.
