Unfortunately when the weather is miserable during harvest, I typically end up being a bit happy on the inside because it allows me to be with my husband as a family, spend some alone time with him catching up on shows, or heading off to Target by myself. Jay actually sent me there…all his idea! I don’t know what it is about that red ring with the dot in the middle that makes a girl so happy!
Our cat Gus just looked so peaceful sleeping on the couch. So I disturbed him to take a picture.
Didn’t have the most time to set my camera for this shot, but this is one of my favourite pictures of Braden! Just naturally so happy to ride in the combine with his family!
Looking at these nice, sunny pictures makes me so sad…you’ll see why in a few pictures. Fresh corn from my garden for supper.
I want you to pay special attention to this photo. Big blue sky with whispy white clouds, a golden wheat field standing tall as the combine harvests it, a beautiful 25ºC out…
…BECAUSE THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED THE NEXT DAY! Snow and 5ºC. I’m still flabbergasted at the snow in the first week of September that has done so much damage to our poor crops. In all honesty, I think it even shocked our snow dog! This was also Braden’s first day of school but he took a sub-par picture, so sorry kid…it’s the dog!
Poor wheat, covered in snow. You can read more about how the snow will affect the rest of our harvest here.
I definitely did not get around to blogs to look at your photos. I am overwhelmed and busy, like I’m sure all of you are too. Thank you so much for supporting this project, for linking up if you still do!, and for your comments. I love them and I appreciate them all!
