A Perfect Evening

9 Oct

After a long stressful week exacerbated by parent-teacher conferences, I was exceedingly grateful for Friday evening.

It was absolutely perfect, although we are rather warm for this time of year.  There wasn’t a drop of wind, and it was perfect for spending time out in pasture with the goats.  I wasn’t even too bothered by the bugs.  Thankfully, because they have been horrible this week, too.

Anyhow, back to a beautiful, peaceful evening. Thankfully.

Although, it’s easy to see the sun is moving farther south in the sky, and it’s setting so much earlier now.

It won’t be long until we’re really seeing short days.

Xerxes in love because Dolly was in heat; it’s hormone season!

Harvest

25 Sep

My soybeans were harvested this weekend.  When I came home from work on Friday, the field had been partially combined.

But there was just enough drizzle to stop them from working.

It wasn’t long until they were back out there combining again.

They had another truck to dump the beans into.

They finished just about sunset.

It’s a good feeling to have it done.
