This past summer my dad purchased this combine and now Joel and him are harvesting my dad’s fields! In years past my uncle and dad planted and harvested my dad’s fields. I was pretty excited when dad and Joel started talking about buying equipment so that they could farm the fields, with Joel running the combine! I have ALWAYS wanted to be a farmer’s wife. Now I can claim to be one! WHOO HOO!
This weekend we spent quite a bit of time out in my dad’s soybean field learning all about the art of harvesting from him, picking up rocks, enjoying the beauty of the day, bringing meals and keeping everyone hydrated!
We even got to take rides! Sis and I went together. She stood next to Joel and I rode out on the landing next to the door. She had a big smile on her face the entire time and thought it was hilarious that I was covered in chaff. Soybeans are super dusty and my hair was pretty covered by the time we climbed down, but it was SO worth it!
This past week has been absolutely beautiful! The color here is at its peak and I can’t stop myself from taking pictures of all the beauty. I know as soon as we get some rain or wind it will all be gone, so I am soaking up these perfect Indian summer days!
I’m obviously getting a little giddy with all the photography opportunities around here! Not to mention I’m working on editing two Senior photo shoots I had this weekend. BUSY, BUSY, BUSY! And what about all the applesauce that needs canning, and schooling, and did someone say they need clean underwear, and really you want to eat again! Please excuse my absence here of late….my family is calling and I know that each of you understands the importance of that!
Happy Autumn, my friends!
