Ah, Esperance weather! And more books!

The clouds started to gather, yesterday afternoon. The headers were racing to try get as much crop into the bins, before the rain came… Or maybe it wouldn’t rain, it just pretending it might.

At about 8pm Hayden came running out of his room. ‘Mum, Dad I can hear rain!’

Oh good. We only had about another two hours worth of harvest left and we would be finished, but now we’ll have to stop because the moisture will be too high and because all our silos were full!

This will mean we’re stopped for a little while because, as I type, there are little ‘scuddy’ showers coming up from the coast. We’re hoping to be finished before Christmas!

Now, I mentioned there would be more author recommendations for books as presents or summer reading.
