Harvest is here. The corn is being picked. The cotton is still growing. We are listening to Farmer Boy in the car, and waiting for the weather to actually turn cool.
The boy spent a day down on the farm with my dad this week. Jude and Silas rode in tractors most of the afternoon, learning how to drive. They played with kittens, and looked at stars on top of the grain bins. When we found hubs, he was covered in grease and wearing overalls. It's like a little boys' dream world out there.
The day ended for me with a hasty jump down from the tractor. For the first time in my 38 years, I sprained my foot. I felt so stupid. B now that the x-ray is in, I'm only relieved that it's not broken. After 6 months of resting stress fractures, a broken foot would be my nightmare. Hopefully though, in a week, I'll be back up and running!
