Now this is what I call a tractor......

If my dad looks at my blog he'll let me know what they are doing.  This is at the field on top of the hill.  I know they used a combine harvester to harvest the crop in that field last year, but no idea what they were planting the other day.

Wouldn't mind having a go in that tractor; it's a "bit" bigger than my little tractor.  My little tractor though is working hard and I managed to get all of Kamikaze Hill cut on Friday, which was a bonus as I hadn't planned on doing it as we were forecast for rain.  It held off until I had nearly finished cutting it, but then it poured down.

I have finished painting the attic.  I just have some touch ups to do where my "low tack" painters tape pulled off my paint on the walls?  No idea why I paid extra money for the fancier tape when all it did was pull off the paint?  I am going to do that and clean up the attic and put a final coat of varnish on the stairs.  I still have to varnish the wood on the half wall in the attic but I can do that with the carpet down.

I will be glad when Monday night arrives as the carpet will be down and attic will be more or less done, there will be just be finishing touches, including dh finishing off the electrical and hanging the lights.  We will both be glad when it's finished and I can't wait to share photos with you all.  I will also be able to catch up with you all on your blogs, as time has been in short supply recently.

Enjoy your Saturday.

Wow, do you really drive a tractor, even a smaller one? Looking forward to seeing the pictures of the finished attic. Will you be able to have a rest then?

All the different tractors are out in full swing here also. Mostly spreading lime on the fields.
I can wait to see your before and after pictures of the attic. I'm sure you will be very pleased with the nice clean space. All set for you to start decorating now.
Have a great weekend.

We have so size of tractors in our area all the time. With huge farms here, it's not unusual to see them all throughout the seasons. I'm betting you're happy to have the painting done. Hugs
