This may not be our combine (you can tell by the color... it's actually our neighbor's), but the meaning is still the same.
Harvest Has Started.
We're working on the soybeans and we're racing against the clock (isn't that true for just about anything, though?). The forecast says rain and maybe even snow (gasp!) could occur later this week... so let's get as much beans in as possible! Hopefully one of these days, I'll go take a picture of the correct color of combine ;)
So, while Daddy and Grandpa are busy running machinery, Evelyn and I and Grandma get to do some extra bonding. She's getting more and more mobile - for a few days it was mostly backwards movement, which explains how she got under the bed! - but yesterday she was really going after a rolling ball! She may not be fast, but she is starting to get the hang of it! Oh, and she loves the Mute the Cat (his name is Mute since when he opens his mouth to meow, but nothing comes out). I've started to let her "pet" him a few times a day and of course she loves it. Although, can I even call it petting if it's more of a pulling? We're working on it ;)
She still really struggles to go down for naps... but she still wins us over with her cute smiles. Silly girl.
