Pecking Away … Pecking Away

We are still haying.  The oats are all rolled up and we are back to prairie hay. Saturday evening everything J had swathed was raked and baled.  The weatherman was talking a Saturday night storm and good chances for rain on Sunday.  We got .10″ of rain, fog and cool temps on Sunday.  J went back to cutting mid-Monday morning.

It felt good to have Sunday to relax!  Saturday afternoon I got caught up on house cleaning and started laundry.  Sunday I did more laundry, caught up with a good nap, did a little baking and took time to edit pictures.  Sunday night I felt ready to face another busy week.

Monday afternoon J quit early.  We went out to eat with Cousin T, his Wife and Nephew and a neighbor couple.  We were celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Cousin T and his Wife.

With haying season so busy, and me stressed out, I have not been taking many pictures.  A few; not many.  My picture editing didn’t take that long to catch up on, but was a fun project.  We can see the light at the end of the haying season tunnel (we think) and I hope to take more time for photography.

How do you like to spend your Sunday’s?  What do you do to recharge and get ready to face the week?

    I try to have more downtime on Sunday afternoons and attempt to stay away from the computer. I do think it helps to have a day to recharge the batteries, but I don’t always get to! I’m glad you see the light at the end of the tunnel with haying. I like your prairie flower collage. We have our county fair this week, so it will be a different kind of busy!

  3. Ya know when you are retired somedays are Sundays everyday….the joys of aging. I would love to have my camera and go out haying with you. Those bales are perfect candidates for a photo-op.

    You can sure tell that’s mama’s baby. Great pic. Love the flowers. Your hay looks yummy. Taking a nap by the pool is a great way to recharge. As you know, ranching/farming is a 24/7/365 job. So ya take a recharge when ya get the chance. 🙂 Have a nice day.

    Love the wild coneflowers, I have to grow mine in containers! 🙂
    Sunday is usually a ‘catch-up’ day for me.

    Sunday we try to spend time with family and leave the day free from work ( as much as possible)
    I love the flowers!

    I know it’s a lot of work, but I always look forward to when our local farmers make hay.

  8. I love purple cone flower.. such a cool flower.
    It rained, and rained, and rained here on Sunday.. I heard we got three inches, but I don’t know for a fact. I just know it really never stopped raining soft & steady, from sun up until sundown. So I read tackled my reading pile – I have not had time to do much summer reading, and my stack is huge with books that friends & family have lent me. I knocked one book off on Sunday!
    It was called the Night Journal.. and I really enjoyed it.
