Brutal but Good

It’s summer in Oklahoma. It’s hot – brutal hot. It’s 9pm and finally the temp is below 90F.

We just came in from harvesting in the lavender field. This time of year we have what we jokingly refer to as Summer Hours. Out early to work, inside for lunch and siesta, inside work, dinner and back out in the field from about 7pm until finished for the day. This evening we walked in from the new lavender beds – drenched in sweat and laughing about how insane we must be.

Just for something different let me tell you what I’ve been listening to on the ipod. I love my ipod – am thoroughly addicted to my ipod.
