Red-tailed Hawk

Busy day of hard work. Worked a few hours at my job, then helped move Clint’s daughter to St Louis. Only pics are from yesterday of a hawk on sentry. They like to scout where the corn has been picked.

Sleep well, friends! I’ll be hoping my back forgives me tomorrow!

Sunday Sunset

My neighbor captured the sun setting behind our farm. I love it!

Friends, I wish you a good night’s rest and motivation for Monday.

Harvest 2020 Begins!

It isn’t pedal-to-the metal – yet! More of a testing-the-equipment run.

There is no mistaking the summer greens are shifting to autumn’s golds.

Last night’s sunset was the finishing touch of a wonderful day. I hope you enjoy God’s beauty this Sunday, my friends!

Sunup to sunset

Hazy sunrise making it look like a full moon.

A parts run out of town allowed for a date by the lake.

Sunup to sunset, appreciate God’s beauty, friends!

Field roads

I took a walk after work to clear my mind. Something about the rustling white noise of drying corn leaves is (almost) as soothing as listening to the ocean waves.

Looks like the deer have been dining well.
Pollinator plot
Milkweeds for Monarchs
Happy companions.

Enjoy this beautiful, changing season!

Some days need a reset, reboot, unplugged and tried again. That was yesterday. It started out beautifully.

I was exhausted by evening. Cashed out. Hubby brought me a dragonfly to photograph. It was dazed on the garage floor. It did revive and was released to the flower bed.

I love my hardworking farmer that will take time to rescue a dragonfly and bring it to me to photograph.

I’ve rebooted with sleep and now my coffee. I hope you have a good day, friends!

Illinois & the Oregon wildfires

We were forecast a beautiful sunny September day here in central Illinois. By afternoon, it was still “sunny” – with haze. I’ve since learned it is from the Oregon wildfires.

I pray for those living in the heart and heat of this disaster.

For today, be thankful for fresh air, my friends. I’m grateful to only experience some haze. Until tomorrow.

Sunday Smiles

Well, not sure if this thing will make you smile or not!? It made us scratch our heads wondering what kind of insect it is.

I hope you have had a Sunday full of smiles, friends.

Country roads and views

Took a very country road coming home from a parts run!

Evening views from the farm.

Take the country roads when you can, my friends. Until tomorrow, good night.
