RancherMan & I work outside every day, rain or shine. We’re either working cattle or fixing fences. There’s garden work and tractor work. Day in, day out – we’re outside working. Now we LOVE our lives here don’t get me wrong, but sun protection is something we take very seriously.
We’re careful to wear our Sun-Protective Shirtswhen we’re working outside. And for my small blue Ford 32 hp tractor, RancherMan made sure I had a heavy canvas canopy to protect me from the sun. But his larger tractor didn’t come with a canopy, just a ROPS (roll bar).
Now I hated that he wasn’t protected and constantly nagged I mean reasonedwith him to get something to protect himself from the sun. But he protested mightily, saying: “I’m having trouble finding one that fits the ROPS on my tractor. Plus I’d want a rigid canopy. And since I often work around trees when I’m mowing I just don’t know if I should get one for my tractor”
Spring is almost here in NE Texas! How glorious to see things turning green, colorful flowers popping up and the temps warming. RancherMan & I have been busy building new chicken runs and preparing the garden for planting. We’re in Planting Zone 8 so I’m safe to drop the veggie seedlings into the ground around Easter and I. Can’t. WAIT! But I digress… (eh hemm…)
Today’s topic is saving money, and saving money is important to RancherMan & me – being self-employed means we’re always keeping a watchful eye on our dollars. Thankfully there are ample opportunities to save some cold hard cash. C’mon and see what we did this week to save money.
