"He who gathers crops in summer is a prudent son,
 but he who sleeps during harvest is a disgraceful son."

 Proverbs 10:5

* I'm a pretty tired lady, lately. I'm homeschooling two kids, writing as a job, homekeeping (including cooking healthy meals from scratch), and preserving the harvest. It. Is. A. Lot. Of. Work. I have ZERO time to relax. Still, I'm thankful we can homeschool. I'm thankful I can help bring in some money to make ends meet. I'm thankful we are eating healthy. And I'm thankful we have a harvest to put by for the winter. Perspective is everything!

* Recall of Death Wish Coffee Company’s Cold Brew Coffee, due to botulism.
