fostering farm machinery


I often heard him talking about finding some old farm machinery to place in our beds around the farm.
We talked about taking our flatbed trailer to the prairies to see what could be found.


Patience paid off this weekend. 
Our neighbors needed additional space in their yard and realized they needed to part with this machinery that had been in the family over several generations.



We have been given the privilege of caring for the implements.



Saturday afternoon was spent moving around the pieces until he was satisfied.


The beds will be enlarged to accommodate the larger pieces while the smaller pieces were tucked into existing beds and looked like they had been there...
well...
forever.


The neighbors only have to peer over their fence and feel satisfied that there will be no grass growing up around the spokes of their implements.  

Happy Farmer... 
happy wife.

all for now...

those two




I was watching his mama taking pictures of him.
It wasn't a planned photo op but her camera bag is slung over her shoulder more often than not...
because she never knows when an opportunity will present itself.


Little Oh wasn't so sure about standing in the spot that seemed made just for him.
Grandpa tried hard to make that spot seem irresistible ...
but that shot his mama was looking for didn't exactly happen.


Instead...
I saw those two that share the same birthday and they made me smile so I snapped away behind the photographer.



May the Lord bless you and keep you...
may the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you...
May the Lord turn his face towards you and give you peace.

from Numbers 6:24-26

Happy Birthday With love...

a little weeding





We went out to pick some Romaine for supper.
I watched her for awhile and then went to the house to get my camera.


Up and down the rows...
picking out little weeds...
she never once noticed I was observing.


One little hand clutched the offensive inhabitants...
while the other one plucked.



A few months ago I might have made sure she knew which were weeds and which ones we would eventually want to harvest...
but now she recognized the vegetables.



She eventually had company.
He was most interested in what bugs she might be finding...
but she just continued on while he got busy looking for something interesting in the dirt.

all for now...
