the first morning

today is the day...

we say "hello again!" to mornings that require flannel and afternoons that demand air conditioning

we start greeting every sunrise

the smell of diesel smoke and dust, long settled, starts to fill the air again.. a smell as welcome as freshly baked apple pie, for me

teamwork becomes a necessity like no other time of year

peeing outside, up against a tractor tire, becomes as "ladylike" as it gets, when nature calls

we start eating lunch out of a paper sack, delivered to us in the field because we're important like that ;)

i start seeing more of my husband through a window than i actually see him in person

i crank up the local oldies rock & roll station, preferably playing "Taking Care of Business", and roll on

today is the first day of harvest on our farm


  1. You totally nailed the feeling of fall here. I was all snuggled up in bed this morning thinking about this...but now I am at work, sigh.

    Hope harvest goes well!

  2. Good luck with this crazy busy time of year!!

  3. What a beautifully written post! Sounds like your life is just
    perfect (despite being hectic!). Good luck with it all and Its
    all worth it in the end.

    Hope you manage to cram some time to relax in!
