Sunday Night Drive

The harvest has begun.  Chaff and pea dirt is in the air. 

Donnie’s small grain field looked great…no irrigation…he just relied on the good Lord to bring rain for his crop.

We saw a Hawk…not sure what kind but he was hunting above one of the recently harvested pea fields.
A hawk
We will be glad when the pea field kitty corner from us is all harvested.  Far Guy likes to walk in that direction.  It was not a good idea yesterday.

We woodcarved most of the afternoon yesterday, there was enough of a breeze to keep the skeeters under control. Progress is slow but steady.  We hope to have a productive carving week… we only see the Dentist this week…no Doctors appointments are scheduled…yeah for us!

  4. Hubby has dentist tomorrow and doctor next week. I'm clear for the month of August. Those machines sure do stir up the dust! :-)

  5. Definitely YAY for no doctors! Our harvests here have been sporadic but I suspect they are going to pick up now really quickly.

  8. Beautiful hawk! All that dust! I sneeze, eyes water, and I can't breathe.
    Glad you guys are carving away and don't have to do much running this week. :)

  10. I love the pictures! That hawk looks bigger that what we see here and we see some pretty big ones. Gosh, I didn't realize I had missed so many of your posts...but enjoyed catching up...all the way back to Adam in the candy store. That's a cute picture.

  13. Lovely photos . We like going on the occasional drive to just to see different things or go down to the beaches and walk the pier and small port towns get an ice cream from the shops that are off of lake Erie not far from us as the sun sets in the summer evenings soo lovely . Thanks for sharing , have a good day !

  14. Chaff and dirt in the air doesn't sound pleasant. Hope that is done soon.

  15. We consider it great when there are no dr. appts. scheduled! All that dust would be difficult to deal with. Hope they are finished soon.
    Hi to Chance. Rare that I get a mosquito bite, but I got one while walking Theo early this a.m.

  16. These must be dried peas, like split peas?
    It's always special to see hawks or other birds of prey.
