image Who else is waking up with the sun and the roosters? Today I got out of bed at 6:15 a.m. for no good reason- except that I could not sleep another minute. What's up with the fam? Since summer is the time for me to fight household clutter and neglect, I'll be working on the garage and accounting next. My joy is still in the promising sprouts and fruit appearing miraculously all over my garden, and new chicks peeping out from under proud mother hens. Buck and I are also in the throes and trenches of researching and implementing proactive solutions to adoption issues arising in our home. Tough stuff. I'm mentally and spiritually fighting each moment to stay strong, and most of all, kind.
