It is october here in south central PA and it feels good. So much to think about as the leaves change. Harvest season is here and for the last few days the weather has been nice so Chad has been in the fields working late. As much as I love the fact my husband is a hard working man, I still have to adjust every season to the fact that he is just not home that much. I miss him, although when we do spend alot of time together its like a volcano. It truly is work to have a strong marriage esp. when one is not around alot. Most of our conversations happen on the phone and we have very little face to face time. I know I shouldn't complain because I have a man who cares about me, who loves me for all my crap.
I catch myself daydreaming....which means its time to get up and move or mow I should say. The grass is getting jungle-like out there and I get to be the lucky one to take care of it.

It has rained for minutes, days, weeks, and months! Everyday we hope for sunshine but wake to clouds and rain. Chad is frustrated that he cant get into the fields and get things done. They are SO far behind. He said to me yesterday all they need are 10 weeks of good weather to get everything done at work...and i told him we wont have 10 weeks of good weather before it starts to snow. They started putting up a grain bin at the home farm about a month ago. The guy hasn't been back to finish it, which it doesnt really matter at this point since they cant get the grain off anyway. All of this makes it stressful at home for me because i know that once the weather does out! Or really watch for him. I know chad wont be home but a few hours before he goes out again. If they could and had enough help they would run all day and night. How are we suppose to grow our family if he isnt home? I do wish this rain would stop would be nice to have a little sunshine and hope.
