Kylee DeBock – DeBock Harvesting Wow! Can you believe that we are in the middle of December? Seems to go faster and faster each year…but it doesn’t help that we come home later and later each year either!...
The kids and I have been home for a few weeks now and we are trying to get back into a routine. The kids started back to school on Wednesday of the week we got home. I stayed home to get my house, yard, bills and everything else done that comes from being gone for five months. I started back to work on Monday. I am the kindergarten aide at my kid’s school. Last year was my first year and I really enjoyed it a lot. This year, my son, Riggin, is in kindergarten so it has been fun seeing him learn new things each day.
I just finished making supper as I heard the rain pounding down on the roof of the camper. Looks like dinner won’t be at the field tonight.
We finished cutting in Powers Lake, North Dakota last week and moved our crew to a new job in Humeston, Iowa. We have never cut here before so we are enjoying the stunning colors of Iowa. The leaves on the trees are the most vibrant red, yellow and orange; as well as, the grass being as green as I have ever seen. Just picture perfect. Usually, at home when the trees start changing, the grass has already started to die. But here, you can see the stunning colors of the trees, as well as the bright, green grass.
We are still up in North Dakota plugging away at our fall crops.
We have finished the durum and mustard and have moved on to soybeans. We endured a two-week rain delay at the end of September but once we finally got going again, we have been on a pretty good roll. Until Friday evening, I have not gone on a parts run all year!! That has never happened! Of course, we’ve had our normal belts and bearings break or go out but, luckily, we’ve had everything in our parts trailer, (We’ve picked things up here and there from the tech van but nothing has been an “I am broke down till you get here with the new part” kind of situation.)
