You Just Never Know…

Some days, you just never know what is in store for you!

This morning, I woke up to a day off of work.  No alarms, no agenda in particular.⏰

The hubby had a few small things for us to do on an outside agenda, before the heat of the day started in on us. 🌞🌞🌞

We got a couple of these done, then he decided to add one more thing to his agenda that was a surprise to me…

To get up on the tractor and learn how to drive it around our property!  πŸšœπŸšœπŸšœ

I’ve made it over 50 years without having to drive a clutch, but that record has now come to an end!!! LOL

My View from Tractor Seat
He had me driving it all over the property.  I was a little on the nervous side when he had me drive between some trees on the right, and the creek bank on the left. I wasn’t too sure that I could make it through, without a happy ending!πŸ˜ŸπŸ‘€πŸ˜Ÿ

I am so happy to say, that not only did I keep from putting the tractor in the creek…🚜

But we also got to witness these cute little ducklings following Momma down the creek!  Wish I could have gotten a little closer, but that would have required getting the tractor in the creek!
~ Not a good idea, and would've scared them away anyway! ~

Darling Little Ducklings!
We continued up the trail, until almost reaching the road. At that point, he took over the driving to manuever over a ditch near the road.  I figured his skills were more important than my pride, so no bad feelings!!

Besides that, I needed the exercise! LOL. 🚢🚢🚢🚢

I am very glad that I walked that last leg of the trip.  I found a bunch of daisies that made a cute bouquet for the Guesthouse! What do you think?

Daisy Bouquet!
And, was able to get up close and personal with this beautiful butterfly. No hitting zoom on this shot. πŸ“· It was kind enough to stay still for me.

Ready for my Close-Up!
Does anybody know what kind of butterfly this is, or will I need to do a little bit of research?

And last, but not least, we came inside to eatπŸ•, watch a little bit of a movieπŸ“Ί, and get work doneπŸ”§πŸ”©πŸ”¨ on the Guesthouse. Good timing on that decision! Within about ½ hour, the wind had really picked up, and it just poured for about a good solid hour or so.  ☔☔☔☔

I am so very glad that we weren’t out on that tractor still! LOL 😁🚜☔

So...How was your day?


  1. You know he's teaching you so he can have you out there helping with the yard work! Or maybe he is hoping to have a tractor race with you. Sounds like a great day. Very nice pictures.

  2. The tractor race is probably the answer! LOL It was a very nice day. Wish you could've been here!
