It Has Begun

Right now... It's 8:38am. It's overcast and threatening to rain. Today is the beginning of hay baling. I'm praying, for the crop and my husband's sake, that it doesn't rain. I'm also bracing myself for the long days (beginning at midnight and ending around 10pm some days) without a husband. This morning he snuck out before I was awake.

This past weekend... I bought plane tickets to go home for a visit!!

We went to the feed store. We bought brooder supplies for the baby chicks set to arrive next month. My husband also gave me permission to get replacement plants for my epic fail seedlings. I was like a kid in a candy store... besides tomato plants I ended up scoring some squash, okra, basil, oregano, cilantro, strawberry, and parsley plants too.

Yesterday was arguably the happiest day of my married life so far (and that's saying a lot). It was just a beautiful day with no distractions and nowhere (besides holy Mass) to go. It was truly a day of rest, and a beautiful respite before the busy season begins.

Some plans for this week: I want to assemble the brooder so everything is ready for the chicks. I also need to keep re-vamping the computer program for the impending fast approaching cherry harvest.

If I can find some time for myself, I want to... exercise. I'm boundin' with energy and rarin' to go!

Special prayer intentions: That everything will go smoothly (no baler breakdowns, no heavy rain) for the hay harvest. For my dear friend who's going on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. For my mom's job. And for a great youth group meeting this week.

Something that makes me smile: My husband's goodness. (Wow. Seriously... just... wow). And the possibility that my younger SISTER might be coming for a 3 week visit!!
