Summer In Re-View

Because today is the last day of Summer and tomorrow is the first day of Fall I figured a re-view of the last few months might be just the thing.

We started June off doing this.

 

 

firetheEndIMG_3303

And a little of this.

And finally, after three years, stopped and took a picture of this 5 miles south of the farm…

Got HOT feet driving one particular hay semi.  That’s not sunburn on my feet.

Saw A LOT of this.

Had a Mocha Moment on the deck with this.

And still managed to drive around till the sun went down.

Made time for the Indiana State Fair…

(No, I didn’t get far from the horse barn and coliseum…it was 309 degrees and humid.)

And brought a husband a lunch(s).

Got drug by a boy back to the shop….

All I’m going to say about this is:

I’m so glad it wasn’t me that filled the new mower with diesel fuel instead of gasoline. 

I just KNEW I’d be the first!  And, nope, wasn’t Jake. 

He was relieved he wasn’t the first either. 

Oh, I know we’ll do it eventually…just best not to be first in a case like this.

Explanation:  Every tractor/lawnmower here runs on diesel – except the new one. 

You know…Old habits and all that!

Wandered the yard before the day began and…

made time to get a few after pictures of the last hay field knocked down.

A certain boy honed his manure unloading skills…

and found out how tough it was standing at a 40 degree angle and shoveling out the stubborn leftovers.

Soon it will look like this out the front pasture; the trees are already changing fast here.

And because Todd’s been working on getting this lately,  Jake will have company on the ice in a few weeks when hockey kicks up again, bringing us back full circle…

To this.

 

The End.

One thought on “Summer In Re-View

  1. Dee,
    What an excellent review of your summer in and around Michigan. The control burn still makes me nervous!

    Thanks for being so faithful to this blog site. You put the rest of us to shame. I know some are on Facebook but we still need better participation from some family members. (They know who thay are.)

    Looking forward to your fall blogging.
    J-
