As you mentioned Karen, it's a lovely day outside - temps are at 96 degrees now and climbing. Whew!

As for me, I'm inside today... Daddy put this mama on bed rest for a bit. He seems to think I'm overdoing it this week. hehe I tell him that's impossible. ;) I would be lying if I said I wasn't enjoying inside on a day like today. We don't have air conditioning, but we can keep this little house pretty cool if we just shut her down. I was thinking of baking bread before he got home from work, but I think I'll wait. :)

Royce, our garden has been slow this year as well, due to the weather for the most part. We haven't had cold like you have, but the wide range in extreme temps are confusing our crops - especially the tomatoes. No plums or pears this year - the poor trees just blossomed at the wrong time. And the tomatoes are numerous, but small and sllloooowww. We just put up a little over 20 quarts of green beans. They're delicious! And the potatoes are loving this heat.

Love you all. We're praying for those of you who are hurting, and thank the Lord every day for those of you who are well.

From Oregon,

Laura Shayne (and the Riverdancing Champ, Baby Trenton)
