Staying Afloat


Between the rain and the bad news it's a full time job. Weird, hot, humid weather, downright dank and nasty. Cows don't know what to make of it and have dropped some production, which we can ill afford. Rain has shut down hay harvest without doing a darned thing to take the moisture out of the air.

We keep hearing sad anecdotes of financial desperation from people whose jobs should be secure, whose lives should be simple. Like the cows, I am confused and disconcerted. 

To give you an idea of the signs of pending apocalypse, yesterday I made butterscotch cookies. Now, I admit, this was a particularly good batch. Fewer than half of them are left already.....

However, last night Becky was putting supper away and looked over to find a mosquito BITING a cookie. Yes, it had its nasty little proboscis buried in a cookie.

What the heck is up with that? Alas and woe betide it, that was the last cookie it will ever eat. I'll bet it died happy though.
