Sunday Serenity

I am wishing for some Sunday Serenity today, but it’s not going to happen.  The past week and a half has been busy on the farm, planting corn and soybeans.  The weather has cooperated so everyone is working full-force to get our crops in the ground.

My job  varies from day to day.  Sometimes I am traveling to get parts for broken down equipment or giving workers a ride from one field to another.  Every day I deliver two meals and a midday snack to several workers in various locations.

I am praying for rain showers, not only for the crops, but for a break in this hectic routine for everyone.  Meanwhile, my Sunday Serenity will just have to wait.

  1. So glad to read your fields are in, Ruth. Hope you’ve been able to take a little breather.


  2. Yes, who says farm life is quiet and idyllic? My aunt and uncle farmed sheep for many years, and were the hardest workers I’ve ever seen. Hope your crops are successful.


  3. Reblogged this on Real Life Farm Wife and commented:
    Sounds familiar. And while many Americans were celebrating Memorial Day today, we were home planting the garden.


  4. Here’s wishing you some serenity on any day soon! Sounds like lots of hard work is going on.


  5. Hate that you are working so hard…but, love to hear stories of your life…
    I can just picture you doing all of your food preps and everyone so enjoying!

    I can’t imagine the two meals a day and a midday snack! What time do you start your day, “Retired” Ruth?

    Retired? Sounds like it won’t happen for a while. Hope you get that rain.

  8. It’s great to learn a little bit about the farming life. Always wondered how the farmers got from one field to another- now I know!! Ruth’s Taxi Service! LOL!


  9. Thank you for all that you do for the rest of us. Without farmers, we’d have no food. Hope you get a rest.

    WOW, Ruth–for a retired lady, you work HARD!! Praying you get a breather–God bless you BIG–love, sis Caddo

    I see a chance of rain for us on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Hopefully it’s coming from the west and you get it first.
