Fall Work has begun

First day of seeding

 Not always, but more times than not, the first day of seeding, or of harvest can be a little unpredictable as we iron out any kinks that happen.  Today was like that.  But luckily my husband is pretty mechanically proficient and was able to get the auger up and running in about 20 minutes.

::Wife life when it’s go time on the farm::

  • 6:30am- it begins & I get up.
  • Take Ryker to school and get the older 2 off.
  • Back to the farm and then help position vehicles in different fields.
  • Back to the house and begin chores, projects, to-do’s and making Joel a lunch.
  • 11:20am   Joel needed me to help him position a seed truck BUT a little adjusting on the auger and then filling the drills and moving the seed truck, brought me back into the farm at about 12:45pm.
  • 1pm ate Caesar salad pita.
  • Prepped for dinner and got lose ends tied for various volunteer work going on.
  • Went to school to pick up Ryker.
  • Get home & worked on homework along with starting dinner.
  • Pick up Braxton from Junior High Football practice.
  • Get home and eat dinner.
  • Keegan arrives home from High School practice.
  • Put Ryker to bed and read him a Bible story (David and Goliath tonight).
  • 8:30pm  Brought Joel out his dinner.
  • 10:30pm  Working on a blog post (this one).
  • 11 Joel gets home.

I am happy to run around and make the life of my husband and my kids’ life easier.  These days don’t last forever and they go fleeting by.  But really, sometimes I think… where oh where, does the day go.

One thing is for sure, the landscape can’t be beat.  I love the area that I live in.

Things I enjoy Thursday

This week I devote my ‘things’ to nature!

Here are my top 8 outdoorsy ‘things’ that I can’t get enough of!  Every one of these are reminiscent of the area I get to call home.

  1.  Freshly mowed grass.
  2.  The smell of the first fall rain, after a hot dry summer.
  3.  A great thunder & lightening storm.
  4.  Canadian Geese flying overhead.
  5.  Wind blowing through a wheat field.
  6.  A still winter night that let’s in a sleepy snow.
  7.  The entrance spring flowers make into a new season.
  8.  Clouds that tell a beautiful story.What is your favorite thing about nature that surrounds you?
