It's been three weeks since I last wrote a blog post, and a lot of water has gone under the bridge since then.
...a lot of weeds have grown tall and strong. (no pictures...it's too embarrassing!)
...the kids have started school. We have a senior and a sophomore this year and they're both off to a great start in their cross country season. I was able to get to their first meet on Wednesday. Such a fun sport, and a great bunch of kids/parents to hang out with.
...the weather cooperated, and Jim was able to get all of 4th cutting hay baled into dry bales. That's the first time in a long while that he hasn't baled some of it into high moisture round bales. We're glad to have all the dry hay we can get. We think it's better for the cows, and it's much easier to feed than balage.
...I turned another year older
...The corn has started to dry down. Silo filling might begin this coming week, and that's good, because our silos are both almost completely empty!
...It's been a great year for crops around here. We've had just the right amount of rain, and we couldn't have asked for a more pleasant summer, weather wise. I think the past few days have been the most uncomfortable yet...but it's to cool off tomorrow...yay!
The beans look great, and are just beginning lose their deep green color. Soon they'll turn yellow, and then brown...
Each day my back is feeling better, and hopefully I'll soon be back into the full swing of things. I'm able to do what I need to take care of my family, but have to be really careful with lifting and twisting. I've had to swallow my pride and allow others to do things for me/us. Even though that is hard, we are so grateful for good friends and family who stepped in and cared for us!
