Have you ever...

Have you ever seen one of these? I didn't know what it was at first. When I first saw one of these it was in my neighbors yard, the first summer we moved to Nebraska. I thought it was the neatest thing EVER!

For those of you who have never seen this type of sprinkler, it is a sight. It's a cast iron tractor that pulls itself across the yard and is guided by the hose. It actually sits over the hose and it has spikes on the wheels and it moves itself by the power of the water.

Yesterday, after a community church picnic, which was a total blast! We had and outdoor service and the weather was positively perfect and the sermon re-affirming and the food (as always) more than plentiful. My honey and I walked home and did a little yard work. We planted a few plants and he put down seed over the yard. It's called over seeding. (?) And then he set the sprinkler up. The weather was nice, warm but not hot, and the air was dry with a slight breeze. The perfect end of summer day. We had people stopping by off and on and we waved to the passers-by. (We live on Main Street, and people wave to us as they are driving by) It's really neat. I was trying to crochet something, and having some difficulties (anyone know anything about thumb gussets?), and my honey was sitting and looking out over our yard and just enjoying the weather and the day!

It was a lovely afternoon. How was your Sunday?
