It's a somewhat windy, weird, gloomy kind of Saturday on the outside but on the inside it's calm, quiet and pretty much perfect. Some of the house has risen but they have remained in their residential places leaving Farmer*sWife with peace, coffee and the laptop. :-)
I've been wanting to write this post for days but I've had so much other stuff going on, including getting my Creative Writing Challenge up that was due December 1st for a chance at a $15 Amazon Gift Card. [I won last month!!]

Anyhow, on to the event I wanted to share. During dinner one evening last week Hubby brings up in conversation,
"So, David [a farm hand] came up to me about fifteen minutes before quittin' time and said 'Can I ask you a favor?'"
Hubby had replied, "Um, sure."
"Can I borrow the sprayer? I want to take it down to my girlfriend's house for a few minutes."
Me listening and thinking, why would he want to take the sprayer to his girlfriends house? Hubby was just as curious at the time of that conversation.
Now, before I get to the sweet part, let me share that we aren't talking this type of sprayer:
I mean this type of sprayer:
"Well, I met my girlfriend while spraying for Farmer So-and-So. And, so I thought it'd be special if I showed up on a sprayer to ask her to marry me."
I blink and then let out a melodic "Hooooow sweeeeeeeeeet...... So, what did she say?"
Hubby, "I don't know, he was on his way when I left. I just told him to be sure he had it back at the barn before dark."
Me, being a girl, "How can you not know?"
Anyhow, as it turns out she was quite surprised and they are engaged. Isn't that just the sweetest thing? I found it completely romantic and I just had to share. Happy Saturday!
