Now We Are Farmers




The winter wheat is up! It's official! I would like a certificate of farmership, please! Somebody buy me a cow. Before I have one.




Our yard isn't full of spectacular colors like a lot of the yards around us; we don't have any amazing reds or oranges. But I love the November light in the late afternoon.


Before (as in yesterday):




And after (as of today):



Guess what? Neither of my children seemed to have noticed that my hair is five inches shorter and five shades darker than it was twenty-four hours ago. That's what I get for having sons.

CUTE, Miss Wheat Grower!
I like how your hair is cut around the ears. I need that.
The trees are stunning!

Great hair cut! It really suits you! It's so funny to hear some of my blog pals talk about farming. Here in Boston winter in right around the corner with nothing growing.

Thanks for the sweet comment on my blog- it made my day!

Oh I love the hair- how did I miss this post? You are always funny- and beautiful! I was loving November too- right up until this storm that has lasted most of a week. I'm practising hibernation- only coming out for school runs with sons- mine are like that too! I find farmville farming much easier all round....

Very cool haircut for Mrs Farmer Woman!!!! Growing stuff and looking cute is pretty impressive stuff.

A good friend asked me if I noticed anything about her today. I TOTALLY missed that she had coloured her hair (the same colour, mind you) and there were no grey's. I don't notice grey. I have a head full enough that I just choose to ignore them! Apparently I ignore other people's as well!

Great wheat. Great hair. Harvest the hair; plant the wheat. It's the cyclical nature of farming and hair growing that's attractive to me. It's the season of things.

Very flattering haircut and color! I am so thankful for trees. Yours are especially straight and tall. Happy fall!!!
