I'm having a bloggers' block at the moment. It's been a busy day cleaning the milking parlor  and gutters, doing some banking in town and across the river and some grocery and caring for sick calves, rushing home to make supper answering emails and checking my blog, etc, etc.

I'm blessed with another follower and I was trying to see who it was and I think it's Grandma Yellow Hair. Welcome and thanks for following my blog Maggie. If I'm wrong, will the new follower please send me a comment so I can properly acknowledge you.

I was checking  on my big Christmas cactus this afternoon in my sunroom and I think that it either got too much day light or not enough because there are only a handful of buds on it. Actually there is one bloom in the back.

 It was started from a small segment that had broken off from my daughter Jackie's plant and now it's so huge that I have a hard time finding a suitable place for it in the sunroom. It has always bloomed in profusion before. Maybe it needs to be repotted. The small segment that I stuck in my geranium pot  from this plant has bloomed.
 Here's a picture of the huge plant. It is supposed to bloom a creamy color.

And now it's Report time.

Report on my sick calves  :  They all still have scours from Corona virus and it will have to run its course. They are taking their bottle of water with medicine and a bottle and a quarter of milk as of supper time.  It takes roughly 10 days or so for the virus to run it's course. In the mean time I'm doing all I can for them.

Thanks for your loyalty at reading my blog.  I hope that you all have a good night sleep.  JB
