It’s Saturday and the 5 year old woke up and stated first thing she wanted to ride in the combine with Dad! Honestly, I am surprised she lasts as long as she does, but I think she enjoys her time alone with Daddy! I’m grateful for her willingness!
They began cutting about 10:00 am. I later found out when I took him lunch that she had taken her small electric piano with her that morning! 🙂 Yes Daddy didn’t get hard rock, but he did get lovely piano music with serenading by PV I’m sure! 🙂
I was able to makeup for the Peanut butter and Homemade Jam sandwich my husband received for dinner on Friday night. I made roast beef with peppers/onions, and provolone cheese on a hoagie bun. He seemed to have enjoyed it, and those Snickerdoodles I mentioned on our Facebook page. Yea, he liked those even better! So I am in the process of making a 2nd batch for the upcoming week. I threw in homemade potato salad for lunch too! Tomorrow we will be pulling one of those freezer meals from this post out to enjoy after church!
Unfortunately, the combine header decided to have a bearing go out. So here came the combine back to the farm yard this afternoon, and Dad in law headed out on a parts run. This isn’t what a farmer really wants during harvest, but things happen. My husband is pretty patient, but now that we are into a couple hours of this, his fuse is alittle shorter than usual!
|Bearings inside this are broke!|
|Time to take it apart!|
|Trying to take another section apart|
Well I am going to go ahead & publish this post although the repairs are on their way to being finished! The new parts are being put on as I type! Hopefully he can get back into the field tonight!
Thanks for stopping by!

It can be frustrating when you feel like there is very little you can do to help. I am in those shoes quite often too. It's nice when they love what they do though, enough at least to get them through the breakdowns and frustrations.I like the pic from inside the combine. Would love to see more of those, and yes a video would be awesome!
