Beans are (almost) DONE!

Clint took some pics for me while I was at work. They were knocking out beans! Only a small patch of beans remain that aren’t yet ready.

It was a beautiful fall day. It clouded over a bit toward evening. I barely caught the sunset.

Celebrate something you (almost) complete!

Wednesday on the road

I took off work this afternoon for an appointment, then ran errands, and had another appointment. After delivering sandwiches to the crew, I came home to catch up on a couple of things before I got called out to help run field errands. Today’s pictures were all taken from the truck window.

I love old barns.
Think of the stories they could tell!

Dear friends, don’t miss what is right outside your window!

Until tomorrow.

Tuesday, October 6th

A beautiful, busy day. It’s getting dark too early, tho! It was almost dark when I delivered grilled barnyard burgers. These burgers are a delicious combination of ground chicken breast, bacon, and cheese. We are fortunate to have excellent choices for quality meat in our small towns.

Enjoy a good local product today, my friends!

October 5, 2020 – 1st Frost

It seems way too early, but it was cold and clear with a frosty start to the morning.

Clint took photos from the combine cab for me while I was at work. I love the view from this field – you can see for miles!

I had a hair appointment after work. So, the crew got lucky because I brought Druby’s home for supper! Druby’s is a favorite little hometown burger joint.

I hope you enjoy a favorite hometown restaurant, too!

Relaxing Sunday

Coffee time, church, a quiet lunch at home, a nap!, crop-scouting drive, and dinner with the in-laws: grilled chicken, roasted red potatoes, green beans, and watermelon. It was the kind of day that makes you want to repeat it tomorrow. But, that’s not gonna happen!

Friends, I hope you have more relaxing Sundays than not!

Saturday, October 3

These pictures are compliments of the farmer himself!

This is from Friday. We have two bean heads, so Clint’s dad drives a combine too.

Saturday morning was too damp for beans, so they switched to corn. The sun played across the landscape for a brief time.

I visited a local family’s fall festival with my beautiful, fun, spunky daughter-in-law!

By late afternoon, it was raining enough that they had to stop. Therefore, supper was at the Mexican restaurant with our friends!

It was a great day, here in central Illinois. I hope yours was too!

Fall Friday

Heading to work before 7 am.

Clint sent this one during the day of him and his dad combining beans:

I hope you see beauty in your work.

Quick pics and post

Started bright and early with my CEO class, using a room at Lake Shelbyville’s Visitor Center. Not a bad office view.

Loved seeing the harvest moon as I shuttled between fields.

Supper sandwiches were grilled apple bratwursts and hot dogs. I hope you get to see the full moon!

Cloudy Tuesday

Tonight’s sandwiches were DQ tenderloins. 🤷‍♀️ I had a retirement dinner after work and went with easy.

Washing the dusty windows.

The clouds blocked the view of the moonrise. 😡

However, the west sky had fleeting vivid colors.

No filters needed to enhance the fabulous scenery. Enjoy the beauty outside, friends!
