A fine, foggy mist rises above the surface of the pond this morning as we enjoy a peaceful cool morning. After two torrid weeks of temperatures in the triple digits, this cool morning is a blessing to everything alive. We slept with the windows open last night for the first time in weeks and lay listening to the frogs and other insect sounds. Now that is summer sleeping at its best!
As farmers, Mother Nature has a hold on us during most seasons. She controls our daily lives as most city-dwellers will never understand. She controls our moods, our attitudes, our income, and our future. We’re thankful today, that she has given us a reprieve from the uncomfortable weather.
