Wow, it seems cold here today! It’s supposed to be 80, but a brisk North /Northeast breeze is freezing my bare legs & toes! Maybe shorts weren’t such a good idea. It finally rained a little last night and now it feels like fall.
Kristen started school today and we were done by 1:30-2:00. She did really well and had a lot of fun. Boy, a whole page of cursive practice! She used Karra’s newly installed World Book Encyclopedia on the laptop to look up information on Black Bears. Oooo, 3rd grade is cool. I went upstairs at 3:00 to read and fell asleep!
We bagged the sweet corn this morning and got 2 quart bags and 4 pint bags. I’m so happy I grew sweet corn, but I’ll definitely need a bigger patch next year! I cut the corn from the cob by hand and after about 15 ears, my fingers started to tingle and my wrist hurt. By the time I finished, my arm hurt to the elbow and my first two fingers and my thumb were numb. It was over an hour before they felt normal again. I know I have carpal tunnel, but it really reared it’s ugly head! I told Joel that next year I will have to have a corn stripper thingy to cut the corn from the cob!
I"m hearing howls of hunger from the troops, so I’d better go. TTFN
