What I Did Yesterday


I’m giving away two more 2011 Chickens in the Road calendars this weekend! The first one is sponsored by Handmade Teddy Bears and Raggedies. (You must go look at her stuff. It’s adorable!!!) Ready to play?

I did the following things yesterday…..or did I?

1) Slipped and fell on the ice.
2) Made a hard cheese.
3) Milked Beulah Petunia.
4) Ironed a shirt for Weston.
5) Gave Clover a cookie.

And remember, I don’t milk BP every day! (I’m making it hard, aren’t I? There are some clues to my milking schedule laying around in recent posts….) I did not do all of the things on that list yesterday, but I’m not going to tell you how many of those things I did. You’ll have to guess–and tell me which of those things I did!

One winner from the correct responses will be drawn by random comment number to receive a CITR 2011 calendar. Eligible entry ends at midnight U.S. Eastern time tonight (February 12). You can only guess once. This post will be updated with the winner by 9 a.m. tomorrow (February 13). Good luck! (It’s February. The calendars gotta go!)

Also please remember, if you haven’t yet, vote?

    Yes for 1,3 and 5. What you can get done in a day is a wonder to me!

  16. Yankee Gal says:

    Hi Suzanne; I’m guessing you did ALL of them – including the danged ironing of Weston’s shirt! Because you’re a good mom that way. :airkiss:

  17. Window On The Prairie says:

  22. Linda T. says:

    I’m torn…..I thought it might be a trick….that you fell on the ice and spent the rest of the day on the couch….BUT…..since you amaze me with everything you get done, I’m guessing you did them ALL.

  23. VaGirl2 says:

    3) Milked Beulah Petunia.
    4) Ironed a shirt for Weston.
    5) Gave Clover a cookie.

  24. joycee says:

    I’m really hoping it’s not fell on ice, that is dangerous. I think it’s ironed a shirt for Weston, congrats to him on all his hard work!

  25. Brenda E says:

    This is a hard one and unfair – haha – you do most of these things everyday – how I do not know but you are wonder woman. I know you didn’t iron Weston a shirt so that eliminates that one because Weston isn’t home – is he? I don’t think you slipped on the ice because you are too sure footed for that although it’s possible….hmmmmm….by my calculations you should have milked BP yesterday so I’m going with that one – yeah that’s it #3 for sure.

  26. Jenny says:

    Yes to 1, 3, and 5. No to 2, and 4.

  27. Maura says:

    Ok..I think you …
    1) Yes
    2) Yes

  31. LisaAJB says:

    4. no

    5. yes

  33. Sarah says:

  34. Linda Goble says:

    I think 1. yes to slipping on ice 2. no for making cheese 3. yes for milking B.P. 4.Yes to ironing a shirt for Weston 5. yes clover got a cookie just for being so darn cute. :snoopy:

  35. mmhoney says:

    I think you ran out of time before you finished with the jobs. Just thinking of it all makes me tired. I think I will take a nap while this is figured out. z z z z z

  36. Denise says:

    Yes on 1, 3, 5. No on 2, 4.

  37. proudmary says:

    :snoopy: yes :moo: yes :cowsleep: yes :shimmy: yes :sheep: yes :hug:

  38. Jessica says:

    alrighty, gonna totally guess at all of them.
    1. no
    2. yes
    3. yes
    4. no
    5. yes

  39. Julia says:

    I am going to say yes to 2, 3, 5.

  40. Peggy says:

    I am guessing 1, 3 and 5. I know your weather is about 1/2 day behind ours, but basically the same…..well we may be a bit warmer. Our area was slippery with the ice under the snow day before yesterday thru today. I think I have the milking schedule figured out and if you milked yesterday the milk would need to sit for separation to happen, so no cheese. What is ironing??? Also what day do you not give Clover a cookie? I really need a calendar, as I was so sick in December I forgot to pick up a free one for us and DH didn’t buy one like he usually does.

  41. Karen B says:

    Yes – 1,3,4 and 5.
    No – 2.

  42. Nancy Stickler says:

    I would guess you did them all but iron a shirt!

  43. Alicia Nakamura says:

    ok. My guess is…1.No 2. Yes 3.No 4.Yes 5.Yes :happyflower:

  44. Miss Becky says:

    You did #1,#3,#4,and #5. not in that order though. and I hope you’re recovering nicely from that fall. have a beautiful weekend Suzanne! :hug:

  45. GrammieEarth says:

    I’m guessing it was Glory Bee’s day to milk her mommy and you did everything else. Hope you didn’t hurt yourself in the fall….dang ice. Congrats to Weston, fingers crossed.

  46. Donna Dye says:

    I think you can and did them all. (Your inner Jane)

  47. ann/alba says:

    I did the following things yesterday…..or did I?

    1) Slipped and fell on the ice. YES that Ice is bad
    2) Made a hard cheese.No that was the other day
    3) Milked Beulah Petunia. YES I remember how angry she was the other day you were off your time.
    4) Ironed a shirt for Weston. YES given the Great New I believe you did.
    5) Gave Clover a cookie. YES Just because she iss your best Fur baby.. ( I would give her cookies everyday).
    Have a wonderful Weekend Ann/alba

  48. GM says:

    Yes to 2, 3, 4, and 5.

  49. farmershae says:

    Normally I would say no ironing allowed on the farm, but Weston has special stuff going on, so that is a possiblity. Also, I think you ALMOST fell, but didn’t therefore making it a trick question. Unless that’s what you want me to think and it’s actually the opposite!!! (I dread tests – I think EVERYTHING is a trick question!) So I say:

    1. No falling on ice
    2. Yes to hard cheese
    3. No to milking
    4. Yes to ironing
    5. Yes to goat cookies!!

  50. Vicki in So. CA says:

    1. yes
    2. no
    3. yes
    4. yes
    5. yes

    I really hope I win! :happyfeet:

  51. Patricialynn says:

    Totally believe you slipped on the ice, I don’t think you milked BP, didn’t make hard cheese, yes you ironed a shirt, and of COURSE you gave Clover a cookie.

  52. mother of a ROCKSTAR says:

    Let’s see 1,3,4(ya never know) and 5 yes, I think 2 is a no.

    crossed my fingers for this one.

  53. GaPeach says:

    I think you slipped on ice, milked BP and ironed a shirt. No cookie and no cheese.

  54. langela says:

    I say you did them all.

  55. catslady says:

    I am going to say yes to all but No. 2. (I would have said yes to all but you said you didn’t do everything lol).

  56. Nancy in Iowa says:

    I’m going to say you did 1, 3, and 5! I think yesterday was soft cheese day, and I’m sure that Wonderful Weston would iron his own shirt!!!

  57. Whaledancer says:

    I’m going to guess 1,2,3, and 5 (but I hope I’m wrong about #1).

  58. Darlene says:

    I’m guessing you did everything but number 4. Friday is not ironing day :heart:

    Darlene in Ks

  59. Lindsay says:

    I think you did them all. :snuggle:

  60. Yvonne says:

    1. Yes
    2. No
    3. No
    4. Yes
    5. Yes

  61. AnnieB says:

    My guess: You DID 1, 3, and 5.

  62. windspiritwhimsies says:

    You did the following things yesterday….
    1) Slipped and fell on the ice. Yes (Hope you are Ok!) 😥
    2) Made a hard cheese. No :no:
    3) Milked Beulah Petunia. Yes :moo:
    4) Ironed a shirt for Weston. No :no:
    5) Gave Clover a cookie. Yes :yes:

  63. brookdale says:

    My guess is 3 and 5. Hope you didn’t slip and fall on the ice!

  64. Wanda says:

    no to everythinjg but gic=ving Clover a cookie.

  65. nell morell says:

    I think you did 1,2,5 Sorry about the first one. Hope you didn’t hurt yourself too bad.

  66. Linda says:

    Slipped and fell, milked and gave Clover a cookie. Linda

  67. Turtle Mom says:

    I think the only thing you did from that list was to give Clover a cookie!

  68. Theresa says:

    So I’m thinking that you did 1, 4 & 5. I’m guessing that you were planning on making cheese but when you slipped and fell on the ice you didn,t feel like doing anything for the rest of the day. You had to iron the shirt because he is your son and you love him. I’m just guessing, though, becuase when I slip and fall I’m out for days. I’m a big baby, though.

  69. Sundownr says:

    OK, I’ll guess:
    1-Yes :yes:
    2-No :no:
    3-Y :yes: :moo:
    4-Y :yes:
    5-N :no:

    Have a great weekend and bake Clover some cookies woman!

  70. Darlene in North Ga says:

    1 no
    2 yes
    3 yes
    4 no
    5 yes
