just the woman for the job

Farmer Boy has called me to the fields...he desperately needs parts from town and it seems that he's the only one that can handle this job....too many odd numbers to relate to the parts man behind the counter or something to that effect... besides the fact that he occasionally needs a break
from running the combine for hours on end...
so...sweet wife that I am...
I've come to "spell him off" for awhile.
now where is he?
there he is "ok honey", says my Farmer Boy.... "just finish up this little dab and I'll be back in no time!"
what a sweet talker he is.... and off I go..... and you thought I sat on the porch sewing a fine seam & playing dollies all summer... to be continued...

Such fun to see you in all that you do~truly a goode wife! I love watching them harvest the corn here. The best bounty comes with hard work! You are always such a treat to me!

I too was wondering who shot the pictures. I am suspecting it may have been your son or his beautiful wife. In any event, you look marvelous, and hey, so does Bob!

You not only sew, but you reap. Riffing on Donna's comment.

I guess I did kind of picture you sewing on the porch and perhaps climbing haystacks at dusk. ;-)

Christe,
How fun. :0) It looks so relaxing and good for the soul.

What a great way to let your mind wander to the good things that you have in your life and the wonders that God has gifted us with.

Have you ever brought one of your dollies for a ride? That would be fun to share those memories with her before she went off to live with her new Mommy. You could do a journal page to send along with some pics too!

Hugs,
Tink

I had to laugh when you said he said let me finish this little dab. It sounds like something my daddy would say . So is your hubby mowing hay? thats what my daddy has been doing for the past three weeks! My mom is like you, his gopher for when he needs something ;) Rosemary
