I'll admit it. The weather is getting me down. Optimism is being eroded by pessimistic thoughts. Thoughts like: "What if the weather STAYS LIKE THIS DURING HARVEST????"
It's starting to look like a possibility...and if it does I can tell you, it won't be pretty.
Ugliness, ugliness will ensue.
I don't even like to think about it, or talk about it. Therefore, days of blog silence...
as I think about it...
Until recently, the weather has been inconvenient --
but it now has slipped over into the consequential category.
Those little bees are not flying out there. It's too cold. It's too wet.
And so those raspberry blooms aren't getting pollinated like they should.
But this consequence will seem inconsequential if the cloudy, rainy days continue into harvest time...
I'm borrowing trouble...and I must stop. The sun will come out tomorrow...at least one of the tomorrows.
And I need to go with The Farmer's wisdom: "We just need to take whatever the Lord decides to give us, and trust Him. He knows what we need."
