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 😉  The tractor and manure spreader keep buzzing by the house, and will stop sometime before midnight, or when the farmer gets too tired 🙂

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? 🙂 Really, what is the deal? We all did stuff today, but didn’t have to tell everyone. Right???  But I felt like it, and it’s my blog, so there you go! Chuckle, chuckle 🙂

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 🙂

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 🙂

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 🙂 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 🙂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!! 🙂
