IT’S SOLSTICE WEEK UP HERE IN THE ALL BUT 4 HOURS OF LIGHT. WE REVEL IN IN. WE OFTEN FORGET WHAT TIME IT IS, AS FOR A SHORT WHILE IT WILL BE HARD TO FIGURE OUT IF IT IS A SUNRISE OR A SUNSET.
SEASONS CHANGE. WHILE BY MOST STANDARDS WE HAD A MILD WINTER, THE GROUND WAS STILL FROZEN IN PLACES. WE JUST FINISHED PLANTING THIS LAST WEEK – AND EVERYTHING IS ALREADY UP AND GOING! WE LOVE BEING ABLE TO BE “FARM TO TABLE.” EVENING CONVECTION SHOWERS HELP SO WE DON’T HAVE TO WATER, AND 65 DEGREE F WEATHER IS GREAT TO TAKE BREAKS AND SIT ON THE DECK ON.
WE CONTINUE TO LOVE BILL BEING RETIRED. ONLY TROUBLE IS, I FORGET WHAT DAY OF THE WEEK IT IS! WE ARE FINDING THAT LESS IS MORE, QUALITY OVER QUANTITY AND CHOICES STILL HAVE CONSEQUENCES. SO, PAYING ATTENTION TO RISK VERSUS REWARD IS IMPORTANT – ESPECIALLY FOR CARE.
WE HAVE COME TO THE MEDICAL POINT WHERE THERE ARE NOT MANY OPTIONS LEFT TO DEAL WITH THE HAND I’VE BEEN DEALT, SO WE WILL DO WHAT WE ALWAYS DO: ONE DAY, ONE HOUR AT A TIME. WE WILL KEEP YOU POSTED.
DON’T WORRY IF YOU DON’T HEAR FROM US IN THE NEXT FEW MONTHS – WE ARE (WE THINK!) COMING DOWN THE HOME STRETCH WITH DON’T WIMP OUT! (FINDING FAITH, COURAGE AND VICTORY IN LIFE’S DAILY BATTLES.) THERE IS A STRONG CHANCE IT IS GOING TO THE PRINTER IN THE NEXT 1-2 WEEKS. MANY EDITS, MANY CHANGES, AND DETOURING HOW WE ARE GETTING IT OUT WILL KEEP CARE OUT OF BILL’S WAY, AND OUT OF TEMPTATION TO GARDEN WITH HIM. (DO YOU THINK 123 HILLS OF POTATOES THAT ARE UP ARE ENOUGH?!) HE PLANTED ROWS SO HE CAN WEED BY RUNNING THE TILLER OR DISC BEHIND HIS 4-WHEELER. IF I MAY SAY SO, IT LOOKS AWESOME!
SORRY FOR EVERYONE DEALING WITH THE HEAT – BE SAFE, AND KNOW WE ARE SENDING OUR LOVE AND PRAYERS!
