As much as we would like the weather to remain nice so we can wrap this harvest season up, it's still nice to have a "break" every once in a while because of rain (and not because of break downs). Rain began late yesterday afternoon and continued into late evening so Brad was in for supper and that was definitely a nice change of pace. It's been a while since we actually sat at a table. I was worried Jo had forgotten how to eat at the table, but she surprised me. I think she was just as glad to have Brad home as we all were. Most days during planting and harvest, Brad leaves the house at around 6:30 in the morning and returns home late at night...some nights it's been 12:00.
While we all missed him, I think the middle missed him the most. These two definitely share a special bond...
Mel purchased a locket at a holiday craft expo over the weekend and she has been begging me to take a picture of her and Brad. So, last night was the night, but she was already in her PJs when I decided to snap the photo, so she had a meltdown and I told her to put her other shirt back on. I assured her that the picture would be a close-up so no one would see her My Little Pony shorts;) Now, the locket holds two photos...like most lockets do. And she wants both pictures to be of her and Brad. I don't know how I feel about that!;)
We are back in the fields today, even though it's a little soggy, but they are eager to find out if the combine is fixed.
