Are Numbers Important?

That depends on the number. This morning, I stepped on the scale like I do most Saturdays and I read the number. I got excited. The number on the scale read 279. For me that is a good thing. Six months of working on the llama farm has been good for me. Actually, retirement has been good for me. I’ve lost over 50 pounds since retiring.  For me that is a good thing. For Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas, they turned down my application for health insurance because I lost almost 40 pounds. Apparently they did not like the fact that I did that without my doctor’s OK.

The farm is expecting 150 bales of winter hay in the next two weeks. before that hay arrives, we have to make room for it. Remember this photo from June? I don’t know the number but I think it is fair to say. “That’s a lot of hay.”

Today that storage area has 42 bales of hay and now looks like this.

Some of that hay was consumed and a bunch of it was moved to the boys barn. Here is a before and after photo of the boys barn. The boys barn normally has 16 bales of hay. Today it has 65 bales. I’ve been moving 10 bales per day. Next week, we will need to decide how much more hay will be moved to the boys barn.

Remember Carol’s secret quilt project? Here is the finished project. She made 4 placemats for Pam and Jerry. The placemats have a cloth napkin holder and are reversible. I think she did pretty good.

Well, that just about sums it up. We have 13 days left in Blue Ridge, Then once we head out, we have 1,147 miles to drive.

Thanks for stopping by – y’all come back now.

  1. Hay, hay, hay – any way you look at it, that’s a lot of hay! Congrats on the weight loss, even if BCBS doesn’t agree.

  2. Try one of those wraps your daughters are selling and you’ll loose another 10 pounds!
