It was a busy weekend! Last Friday J and his folks started farming. J’s Dad works the field and J plants. B keeps an eye on the cows, helps move equipment, runs a tractor when needed and keeps the guys feed. I help B. It’s an “all hands on deck” process, but it only takes a few days. Tuesday afternoon the oats were in!
WIND … the other story of our spring. Saturday was a typical windy day on the Prairie. Sunday was a very windy, hot (80* on April 1st?) and dry day. Monday was cool, dreary and the windy was stronger. I know the wind picked up over night; I was up coughing and heard the extra roar. Then the return of beautiful spring weather by Tuesday and more wind on Wednesday.
Lucky for me, I caught someones cold. Somewhere between J and work I got it again. All the blowing dirt in the air is not helping my situation. I am tired of coughing.
I finished book one of The Hunger Games and started book two. I have to admit, I like what I have read. I also must add that I am an adult reading a creative fictional story.
Our neighbor’s beautiful horses were grazing by the road last week. I don’t know about you, but I think these horses are pretty camera-friendly. At least they seem to enjoy when I stop and photograph them. Next week I will share pictures of the White Horse.
Today I am thankful the oat crop is in. Now it can rain! I am thankful for having the opportunity to photograph beautiful horses and enjoy a good book series.
