The six-year-old in this column is my youngest daughter, Rachel. Her bad mood this day was never understood. She must have got up on the wrong side of the bed which would have hurt as the bed was against the wall.
As a youngster, Rachel was fun company, but this particular day wasn’t her best.
Maybe this was a forerunner for Rachel’s teen years. Those were a test for us all.
Lucky for everyone, Rachel survived the teens and is a wonderful adult and great company.
I don’t mind a fall rain, minus wind gusts, but I didn’t tell my husband that fact. Farmers who are in the midst of harvest do not like rain stopping their fieldwork.
This video is from early years of being a farmer and a farmer’s wife.
Today rain and wind even stopped my yardwork. I picked up a book and read instead of working outside. Of course, the yardwork is still out there. But at least I have an excuse for putting up my feet and reading.
Tomorrow I’ll see where the 35 MPH wind gusts took my leaves. Maybe the fields will gather them before I have to deal with the tree debris. I can always hope.
