I drag myself out of bed each morning groggy and confused, tend to morning chores in a daze and then set about on the tasks for the day. Need I say productivity is a big problem right now. All I seem to want to do is lie down and stare at the ceiling. I don't though. Yesterday and the day before I harvested 60 pounds of cherry tomatoes, Possibly close to 80 pounds of cucumbers, 30 pounds of soy beans and I have no clue how much okra. I rushed to jar yogurt, package feta, make a Armenian cucumber and yogurt salad, mix jalapeno chevre, gather eggs, milk goats, feed kids and load up for the CSA drop off. Unloaded, set up, realized I had forgotten to bring water, got dizzy and nearly passed out as the first CSA member walked up to pick up their share. Luckily I was able to go into the church and drink some water and cool off a bit.
Today I have only been able to just do the bare minimum. As I write this its 100 degrees. It wont get any hotter and this morning was a beautiful 74 until 10am that's when the 80's then the 90's came sweeping in. So I did what I needed to and went for a swim. then it was off to the feed store. I have moments of clarity but they don't last long. I work hard to remember that tomorrow it will only be 97. Then soon it will be 50 and 27 and maybe 12 degrees and I'll be trudging along in my beloved carhearts. There might be snow and rain.
This will pass.
I tell myself I should embrace this time. I should sit in the shade with a cold one. If it weren't for the dust I would. I cant even dry the clothes on the line with out having to rewash them. Do I sound a little negative. I am, I just cant help it. I know better really I do. I need something I just don't know what. No, I do its called RAIN!
