No Christmas Cookies this Harvest

Check this out…before we headed to the field this morning, I pulled out a bag to throw in a few things to take with me in the semi. It's the same one I used last year. Here's what I found in the bottom:

That's right. It's my mother-in-law's December 2009 Good Housekeeping. That's what we were reading last year during harvest. Christmas cookies. Buffets. Snowflake decorations.

You know, yields aren't great this year, but there's one thought that keeps running through my mind: at least it's not December.

Amen and hallelujah.
