I began spray painting my ugly old brass ceiling fan. 💞
Well it’s finished being painted although not put back up yet. My husband will hang it on Saturday. Here is a picture of it with a coat of paint. I’m impressed that I actually did a good job..😊👏 The blades are a dark brown.

That does look good. Good color too, it won't show dirt like my white ones do........what was I thinking???
Yes. I didn’t want a white fan in the living room. In the birds room there is a white ceiling fan and boy does it look awful 😣
I might have to tackle that one soon?
I really am glad I chose this colour. 😊👏👍

Jeepers our weather is all over the place. It was nice Saturday morning and in the afternoon the winds picked up and it snowed like crazy. It was like a blizzard 🌨 .
Yesterday morning it was white outside and by mid afternoon all the snow was melted away. I needed more hay so my husband picked up 51 more bales. I hope that they will last till first cut. :fl
I was happy with the bales. Good quality hay. 👏😊

I got 8 "early first cut" a month or so back because the boys clearly weren't going to make it to spring grass on the 20 bales of 2nd cut I got in the fall. Those boys are PICKY!!!! Lots more of the 1st cut ends up on the floor. I have to preorder 25 bales of second cut for next winter.

I just took my horses off pasture that I don’t have and they are dry lotted for the summer. Last spring I sowed Bahia grass seed behind the barn where we had it forestry mulched. I allowed VERY limited grazing. A few days ago, I disced up the pipeline and sowed giant Bermuda grass seed, waiting on rain. I need grass sooooo bad!

Yes..I graze my horses all summer long and in good years I don’t have to feed hay till fall. We desperately need days of steady rain.

Coyotes! :barnie
we have lots of coyotes around this year. One has been coming here almost daily this past week and I think it’s trying to lure Bindi away from the yard to kill her.:hit I can’t let the 4 little dogs outside alone.
It was just behind the shop calling and Bindi was wanting to go but I was able to get her back into the house.
Maybe it’s after the goats?
