I've got a case of the Mondays... I'm just tired. Sarah has been up at least three hours a night the last few nights and eventually that catches up to me. My ability to keep on the positive side isn't the best when I'm worn out... we're on the second week of harvest now as well. We got rained out last night. There are worries as they are calling for a wet week ahead. We know that God will provide but it's hard not be anxious when our income for the year is sitting in the fields.
Every year this happens though, every year there is at least one storm that comes through and wets it all down when we're cutting wheat. Last year Marie and I watched that storm together from the back of the car on the side of the dirt road eating strawberry yogurt and I had no idea how precious that was.
I also don't have much to say today. Not much going on other than long, long days. Me and my little lady's have been home alone a lot and I think they're getting a little grumpy at not having their Daddy much. No surprise, this too happens every year.
What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.

Since I don't have much, here is my recipe for Harvest Bars. They're actually chocolate chip cheesecake brownies but I call them harvest bars because this is the only time of the year I'll make them. They're a little fattening.
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup sugar
2 8 oz packages cream cheese
2 16 oz packages chocolate chip cookie dough
Press one package of dough into the bottom of a greased 9x13 pan. Mix eggs, vanilla, cream cheese and sugar. Pour over cookie dough. Top with second package of cookie dough (mooshed flat in whatever way you can). Bake at 350 35-45 minuets (but it always seems to take a little longer for the cream cheese layer to set).
Cut up and enjoy, it makes a ton!
