The farmer who rents our land is planting soybeans on what used to be my alfalfa field.
I put this photo in for Brogan and Soren. :-)
This is the time of year that I wake up about 4 AM, fall asleep for a while, but then can't sleep past about 5:30. If it's not a dog barking, then it's birds singing which I LOVE, and sunshine coming in the window. But that's a good thing, for then I get an early start on my day. Being a morning person, this is especially helpful, for I can get a lot done in the mornings. But it also means that I'm ready to crash about 8:30 PM. My kids know that all it takes is a movie and a fairly comfortable couch to put me to sleep. I've watched lots of movies, but don't ask me how they end.

Hopefully next year it will be planted to alfalfa again.
This is going to be the weekend to get the garden in. So far my plants are sitting on the deck and getting covered by sheets at night to keep them from freezing. It only got to 41 degrees last night, but tonight we're expecting close to freezing. I'm not taking any chances. I'll cover them again tonight. The forecast looks like we're good after that. I'm eager to get those plants into the garden.

See that spotted tongue of hers?
I read Ephesians 4 again this morning. I think it's one of those chapters I need to read and re-read and re-read. And not because I fall asleep before the end.
