December has arrived! Wow where has this year gone? It hardly seemed like we had any summer with all the rain that we had this spring.It took that much longer to put the crop in this year and so therefore it shortened up summer! But, I have to admit this year's fall harvest went the best of any that I can remember in our 16 years of married bliss. I think we pretty much had everything out of the field in 3 weeks. That is incredible! And now we are looking the end of the year in the face. I went yesterday to Mankato and did some Christmas shopping with my Mom and two daughters Jade and Jessa. What a wonderful day. We shopped, had lunch, and enjoyed each others company. It is not very often that we can get all us ladies together at one time and especially for a whole day of shopping. I love those ladies so much I can hardly believe that I am lucky enough to have them all in my life. All of us are at different stages of our lives but can totally appreciate each other and give the support needed.
Last weekend Chris, Weston and I went to the cities to buy a different pickup for the farm. One that has a flatbed on it with boxes for tools. Everything he wanted except that it was a 2 wheel drive pickup instead of 4. Well we got 10 minutes from the place that we where going (which we had called the night before and made the arrangements to come up and see it telling him when we would be there) and he called to tell us that he had just sold the vehicle to another person. Can you believe that? We were on time as to when we told him we would be there and he didn't wait for us. If someone else was coming to see the truck he should have told us so the night before when we called him and set up the arrangement. Disappointing! Sometime you wonder how people think. So we got back on the freeway and headed back south. I wanted to check out the National Camera Exchange store that is located just south of the Burnsville Mall. I came out smelling like a rose in this deal though cause I purchased a new wonderful Sony Alpha camera. I am so excited to learn more about this camera and what it can do. I will start posting some pictures to the site so you can see how I am doing. Wish me Luck!!
