So busy...

Just thought I would check in! Life is soooo busy right now. I would love to be quilting but farm chores take priority right now. Cutting, baling and putting up hay! It has been so hot and sticky, just miserable!

As you can see here we have been working from morning until dark. This was at the edge of dark when I took this photo. My back is killing me but it has to be done.
On Monday, Lexie was here and spent the night. Not a lot of quality time spent doing family things because of having to get the hay put up, but at least she was here with us. She and Hunter rode their bikes and played around. It was nice having her here and Hunter was very happy to spend the time with her. My little Honey-bun (pet name) getting ready to hit a ramp that he built.
Oh and lastly, another batch of soap that I made late Sunday night while I couldn't sleep! This batch is Honey/Almond. Got to get back to it! Rain is coming in and still have more to put up!

Good luck getting your hay in. We have had a wet spring here in the northwest. Most of our first cuts here are going to hayledge. It's just too wet to bail. Poor farmers in this area are going to be hurting. Send some of your hot, sticky weather our way, please!

See, as a city girl I had no idea you had to do chores like that. I would never make it. LOL!

Good luck with all that hay! I feel like I haven't done anything worth while lately but work on the dang house. I wish that it would just all get finished! lol

You are one busy family! Looks like the soaps are coming out great... any thought to sell them? Hope the new parts arrive soon so you can get back to your sewing therapy!

The farming life, I miss it at times and would love to live in the country again.
