I don't know how so many people do it all!
I need a real break!
We all had a blast harvesting, hauling, shucking, cooking and eating the corn!
What a treat it was! It's as if I'd passed out candy!

We got eight 1 quart bags just from this basket alone. That is, after eating some for dinner!
Since I am just short of completely exhausted, and in need of recharging my batteries, so to speak, I need a vacation. However, since we haven't the funds for such a luxury, I've been bringing the vacation to myself, in the form of a book or two!
Last week I read "The Scarlet Pimpernel," which is set in the time of France's horrible and bloody revolution, where Madame Guillotine ruled. I love adventures, some mystery, heroic heroes, and a dash of romance. This was a great choice as it fit the bill nicely. Plenty of escapism. Pun intended!
Now I'm reading "Cyrano de Bergerac." This one's got wit, action, a dash of tragedy, lots of comedy, and of course, a little romantic intrigue. Our hero, Cyrano, who is endowed with a majestic nose and an even more majestic wit, is the swashbuckler who more than makes up for his nose through his character.
To pass a laugh on to you, I share this small excerpt...
In the first act, Valvert is unable to stop fixating on the fact that Cyrano hasn't even any gloves about him for this verbal duel. Finally, Cyrano responds, cutting Valvert off once again,
"I am without gloves? ... a mighty matter! I only had one left, of a very ancient pair, and even that became a burden to me... I left it in somebody's face."
That seems to fit my mood nicely right now!
So after sharing this with you today, I feel somewhat revived!
Thank you for sharing in the medicine of smiles...
...and maybe a laugh!
So curl up with a good book, and a glass of sweet tea or lemonade!
