Why do I have hay in my hair?

~Did a little birdie put it there?

Hmmmmm..... Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that, from 11:00AM to 7:00PM today, my dad, Andrew and I worked on stacking hay bales and, as it was hot and the truck doesn't have air-conditioning, I had the windows open and the hay would blow in whenever one of the guys would put bales on the back of the truck!

We finished the field that we didn't quite get done last night, and then moved everything over to the fields south of Hazelton. We finished stacking all the hay in one field and started on another before having to come home for chores once again. Everything went pretty well today, except for when the pin came out of the bale-fork behind Dad's tractor twice-----and except for when a few bales tipped off the side of my truck while I was going down a very bumpy part of the field--3 times! :)

Mother and Jacob kept things going here at home and had a wonderful meal ready for us upon our arrival. It sure is nice to come home from a hot, dusty job and to find a kitchen full of good smells~
