19 Jul Z Crew: Sitting, Sitting and More Sitting
Limon, CO: I tell you what…When you get into the routine of doing nothing, you really get into that routine. Sunday night the rain began and hadn’t stopped until yesterday. Callie and I are used to hanging out around the trailer house by ourselves, but for some reason when you add Mom and Dad into the equation, lazy hits a whole new level.
The wheat we have here in Limon was able to stay out of the hail over the last week, but many farmers didn’t get so lucky. But here I sit looking at the week ahead of projected record highs and perfect wheat-drying days! Mom and Dad hope to get back into the field tomorrow afternoon! I know Dad is starting to get pretty antsy about heading north. The wheat around Garfield County, Mont. could be ready within the next week and a half.
Wednesday night provided the most entertainment we’ve had over the last five days. We loaded up and headed west to Colorado Springs for the evening. Rain hindered us from taking a trip into the mountains, but a night spent with good friends at Bass Pro was just what we needed!
Tomorrow morning Callie and I will be on our way to the Denver airport to pick up our big sister, Jamie, and our nephew, Eli. We are all more than excited for the company! Jamie’s husband Curt will be driving down within the week with their pop-up camper.
