NO REST FOR THE WEARY

For the past three weeks we have been working sooo sooo much getting everyone on their vacation.  The summer heat, being tired and hungry (low blood sugar) can really test a person, mentally and physically. You can find out a lot about yourself when you are pressed to your LIMITS.  One of my favorite quotes kept coming to mind when I was thinking about how much stuff we still had to accomplish in that day, the physical tiredness or how hot you were at a particular moment was:

"THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A SUCCESSFUL PERSON & OTHERS IS NOT
A LACK OF STRENGTH OR A LACK OF KNOWLEDGE, BUT RATHER
A LACK OF WILL."  V. LOMBARDI

I just LOVE what it stands for, means and how it empowers you to "will on"! 

Homeschool-

So our week was jam packed and I am still getting ready for school to start for us in a week from today.  I am still working out the kinks in our quiet time boxes, what works, or what doesn't.  I will do a post later explaining what the quiet time boxes are and what they are used for.  There is a lot of buzz around the internet about quiet time boxes.  

Home-

I cleaned our carpets this past week and it is so nice to have clean carpet. Little Saster looooves to spill her drinks or SPIT THEM OUT.



Oh carpet, it's a love hate relationship...  I also had our house cleaned by a really nice lady that my Tia uses and it was so nice after the end of a long hot day to come home to a clean house, now I just have to keep it that way.

Work-


I realized from being out there at the crack of dawn is that as soon as the sun comes out the cows take off to the other side of the rocks, not sure why but they do.



So pretty, these are the simple things that you don't always notice when you are in a hurry.


THIS was my helper this past couple of weeks, not only him but the quad and trailer too. So there comes a point where I can do just about everything the guys can do, but when it comes to heavy lifting then that is where I need the help. That is where these three guys came into play. We would go get newborn baby calves so I didn't have to carry them as far or a 50 lb. bag of powdered milk; a little trailer comes in so handy some times.

That was pretty much a wrap up of my week nothing to exciting went on just work, BUT that will all change next week. There is light at the end of the tunnel!

Thanks for stoppin by,

Jade
