A Look Back...

I'm not coming up with much to blog about. Busyness and a bit of sadness at the passing of my grandma are interfering with the creative juices...

So I looked back at what I blogged about a year ago. Looks like we wrapped up harvesting on October 23 of last year. This year, we've got the soybeans in, but haven't even started harvesting the corn. Last we checked, it was about 40% moisture yet, nowhere near dry enough. We like to harvest it when it's under 20% moisture. Even then, we have to finish drying it down in our gas grain dryer, a huge roaring monster that scares me just a bit. 

This weekend will be busy. Our second daughter turns 18, and it's a struggle to make the day special in between a funeral, shuttling people to/from places, and the craft show we signed up for in March. I'm sure you'll not hear from me until next week...

What are your plans for the weekend? And what were you doing a year ago?


  1. Sorry to hear about your Grandma.
    May beautiful memories give you strength at this difficult time.

    Love EL

  2. Lona, I am so sorry for your loss. It is a difficult time especially with a milestone birthday. Will be keeping you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.

  3. Hi Lona, I'll add my condolences at the loss of your grandma and be thinking of you. I hope your daughter is still able to mark a happy memorable birthday!

    Wish I could make it over to your craft fair...maybe the one in Holland in November (that might the only way to get to see you this fall - LOL!) Sending hugs and prayers,

  4. Sorry to hear about your grandmother. Praying that you all are recovering.

    A year ago this time I was trying to round up Christmas gifts for some 75 children. It will be abit easier this year as we are only providing for 28. The government bulldozer out some of the shanties and moved many of the children (and their families) to other areas.

    Blessings from Costa Rica

  5. My deepest condolences for your loss. I pray that you find comfort in the Lord's loving arms.
    God Bless you.
