LuAnn has done very well at work but fell asleep in her chair when she got home Monday. We both slept the short flight from JFK to Cincinnati and we never do that. Our bodies are that tired. We both awake at the wrong times in the middle of the night but we are slowly being able to fall back asleep as our clocks adjust. Getting back on schedule is a real and earnest task and jet lag is for real. Everyone deals with it differently.
It looks like the lower plains will get some needed moisture in the form of snow. That is not positive news for higher grain markets but beans went up 48 cents yesterday! It snowed a little here last night and it is cold and windy so the wind chills are single digits We have almost 11 hours of daylight now. I wonder what the weather will be like in 6 months while my crops are growing.
Hopefully we get LuAnn's Rendezvous back from Jason tonight after the deer incident. We saw on the news last night that they had to stop a golf match in Australia while 8 foot tall kangaroo's crossed the course. Hitting one of those with the car might be worse than the deer she found!
The home remodeling is progressing very slowly as the coats are applied to the new drywall to get ready for painting. Finding all the problems after demolition of walls and ceilings have moved completion back, almost beyond tolerance. It is what it is though and we are trying to hang on and stay positive. When you can't use your kitchen and have been eating out for a month already, it's pretty challenging.
Fortunately I have not ran behind on paying my bills. We had everything set so accounts would be paid on time while we are gone. We burned a lot more propane while we were gone than I had planned so it must have been really cold here in good ole Martinsville, Ohio!
I am answering emails so fire away. Maybe I can get my replacement cell phone today between the other appointments. Have a great day!
