Harvest Wife

*Edit…

I am changing my title, because I was made aware that my title may be hurtful for those truly in the trenches of being a widow. I truly apologize for that!

It’s Saturday night, 9:34 pm. I sit here typing, the children are watching “The Skit Guys”, but are headed to bed soon! One of them was up before 4 am, another up before 5:30 am, and the other was on baby brother duty since 4 am. Which means interrupted sleep πŸ˜‰Β  The tractor and manure spreader keep buzzing by the house, and will stop sometime before midnight, or when the farmer gets too tired πŸ™‚

I’ve milked twice today, did laundry, cleaned the living room, settled fights, took a power nap while getting baby and his bigger sis down for a nap, washed my kitchen floor, baked cookies, lost my temper, listened to motivational speakers, folded laundry. Don’t you love all those details I just listed? πŸ™‚ Really, what is the deal? We all did stuff today, but didn’t have to tell everyone. Right???Β  But I felt like it, and it’s my blog, so there you go! Chuckle, chuckle πŸ™‚

Ok sorry friends! I may have been feeling a tad snarky. I was baking cookies after 8pm on a Saturday night, and wondering what all the fun, exciting people were doing πŸ™‚

Honestly, I don’t mind being home on a Saturday night! But right now, I refer to myself as the “Harvest widow” (will be more careful with my words, and from now on, say “Harvest wife”), and I am so ready to have a day of rest tomorrow!!

Harvest is in full swing, and with the hubby being gone with the custom crew every day, sometimes half the night, my hands are full πŸ™‚

I decided to share a few photos of harvest 2017!!This was a day I ran lunch to my man, and took a quick ride with him πŸ™‚ This church was right beside a field the crew was in, one night when I ran supper to him . I loved how peaceful it looked!Stopping for a quick bite!The little stinker πŸ™‚I am always glad when this time of year is over! So much equipment, and tired men, often in a hurry.

I pray for safety for all!! This year the crop is bountiful, and we are thankful for that!! I hope you all have a good ending to your weekend!! πŸ™‚

    I’m sorry for being negative, but being an actual widow it hurts to see the word widow in the title. Lord willing your husband will soon be less busy and you’ll be with him again. A true widow doesn’t have that privilege. My husband is not coming back.

    • Bonita, I truly am sorry this upset you. I actually thought of it when I said this, that hopefully it does not come across wrong. I simply meant that over harvest I don’t see him much.
      Again, I am so sorry for your loss! I know we don’t always appreciate what we have till we don’t have it anymore ❀
