The day is done...almost

I looked for this photo last night and couldn't find it...I forgot I had not downloaded yesterday's photos. I just love this one...not sure why. It is another one from Illinois....as are all the others.

Fields were/are starting to be harvested. We seen this plume of 'smoke' off in the distance, only when we got closer we found that it was dust from this combine.


I may have found a new thing to photograph...grain elevators. I wished I had counted how many we seen....


And got to photograph a corn crib...
And this picture just makes me smile to look at with all those birds on top.

I have been busy today doing laundry and I mowed most of the yard. And I made a big pot of chili which I will probably be mine alone. Other than the one bowl Roger ate, that is. I wanted to make chili before we left, but no one else wanted any. So all the time we were gone, I craved chili. I did have a bowl at one place that tasted a lot like my own...it was good. There was just not enough of it...when I crave chili or vegetable soup, I make a pot and eat on it all day long. I told Roger it was the first thing I made when I got home, but it was actually the second, because I did fix a bite of breakfast this morn.

Glad there is a harvest to gather...I like the smiley face with the birds on its bald head!

I love that corn crib! Very nice! We should have great sunsets right now with all the dust being stirred up by the harvesting. I'm seeing cornfields all around me going down right now. Nice to have the views opened up again :-) Welcome home and you sure had a great trip! We'll have to head up that way next. I've never been any of those places.

Grain elevators are interesting looking, not a bad thing to collect photos of. ;-) I love the smiley face with the birds on top. It made me smile!
