Multitasking at its finest

This wonderful video was shared in one of the forums I haunt visit ...

Multi-Tasking: 1885 Technology Meets 2013 Technology: 


Love love love it!

Love the juxtaposition of the modern technology of auto-steer GPS-guided with the manual low-tech vintage hand-crank sewing machine.

Love the grizzled old lady farm hands - I have those too!

Showed the video to DH - the tractor looks quite a lot like the big one we've been enjoying - also with auto-steer.  Although our fields were not nearly as big as these.

Made my day :)

PS ... and now I want one of those beautiful little hand-crank treasures!

Today's visitor at the birdfeeder

The delightful previous owners of our new home were bird-lovers, and they left us a collection of feeders and information.  Today's visitor - we think is a downy woodpecker.  Seems to like the suet feeder :)


Today was a wonderfully sunny day with a fresh breeze - whispers of fall in the air.  My favourite season!

But this *is* progress! Yesterday, DH's Goldwing found its way here; today, mine did :)

I bravely doned the Frogg Toggs - it was raining here and there on the way back to the farm.  Luckily, I only got a few teensy spits - nothing serious at all.


DH had the truck parked and the garage door open so all I had to do was zoom in :) 

Ready to ride again!  In between unpacking more boxes.

On a completely different topic, I'm totally loving cooking with gas.  This is the first house we've been able to have natural gas at - furnace, dryer, oven/stove are all natural gas.  LOVE LOVE LOVE it!  I still startle and jump back when lighting the element on the stove, but man, is it wonderful to have instant heat, and instant off!
