so today . . . i'm tired. i'm sorry. i really want to write something tonight that will make you laugh, but i just can't.
i've been staying up late the last several nights. i sit down in the evening and start playing with my farm, and the next thing i know, it is 10:30 and i haven't even started my blog! so i race to blogspot to write, but then i don't get into bed until after midnight. and i still have to get up in the morning and go to work, because unlike SOME people--wendy--i am not off for the summer yet . . .
but i do have one quick story. this week joshua and jonathan have been helping me "farm." they each have two plots and every day after we find someone to harvest for us, i plow up their ground and then they plant. they always put a lot of thought into what they want to grow.
today for lunch we had fish sticks, rice, corn, and then watermelon for dessert. as i was dishing up their food, we started talking about it and realized that, except for the fish sticks, this was all food they had chosen to "plant" this week. so as they ate their lunch today, they kind of felt like they were eating the food that they had grown . . . it was very cute.
when we planted new crops later today, i noticed that they planted lots of strawberries. i hope they aren't thinking we will have that for lunch tomorrow . . .
