All About Attitude

I made the decision long ago that I could choose my attitude and every morning I wake up making the choice to have a good attitude. I surround myself with people who have a good attitude and I thrive on others who are positive.

Sure, you'll hear my rant about things from time to time. But for the most part I always look for the bright side. Take this week. I have sat through two days of meetings that were a waste of my time but I turned it into a positive- I got to spend time with great friends, reconnect with some great challenging minds, eat amazing lobster, had time to catch up on emails and had a stimulating phone conversation with a co-worker. See it's how you look at.

This morning I had to be up at 4:00 eastern time to catch a flight home but it's a beautiful morning and my cab driver was the best. He was upbeat, friendly and was just the thing I needed to stay on track. And don't get me started on the crew at Starbucks this morning! Those ladies were ready to help the amateur orderer with patience and smiles. So now I'm sitting enjoying my coffee watching the out the window, what a luxury for me.  By the way I love airports with rocking chairs.

I certainly don't have this profound statement in this post. I'm sure for some of you, you're a little disappointed that you took the time to read this and think- wow I've waisted my time-- You missed my point... I wish you luck.

I'm not sure where to begin, it's been way too long since I've been on my blog! So let's quick catch you up on what I've been up to.

First, I was here:

My Cowboy and I spent 2 weeks in Australia at the beginning of May. We had another amazing trip and got to spend time with our old friends and made a ton of new ones. I can't wait to share more of our trip - but that is for another time...

Then I did this:
My Cowboy needed to build some new fence and I was fortunate enough to only have to help a small amount. It looks good and will last a very long time.

And then I did this:
At our farm spring time means cow working time. My Cowboy is taking care of our cows. He is getting them ready to go to pasture with green grass. My job when we work cattle is what ever My Cowboy tells me to do. I love helping work with the cows and it's great couple bonding time...

And then school got out... so any kind of routine we had went out the window. Thank goodness for Miss Em. She is our summer girl and I don't know what I would do without her! Also I have to give a shout out to Pinterest. I know I'm a better mom, I've been able to lay out a summer schedule for the kids and lots of fun activities.

And then I went here...

It's not very often that my and My Cowboy have our boots in the sand. We got invited to help promote beef at the Stew Leonard grocery stores. It was a really great experience.  We talked and grilled and shared what we do as cattle producers with a ton of people in Connecticut.

And now I'm into the full swing of summer...Believe me I've got a lot to talk about. We're traveling some, I've got a painting project planned, 4-H projects to work on and then of course we've got the breeding project to finish up. I'm sure you will be waiting to hear all about it.
