make hay while the sun shines

The weather is hot and dry here in Georgia,
obviously just the right condition for local farmers to
make hay while the sun shines.

Is there something you've been wanting to do?
Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today
(It might be raining tomorrow, and your hay would get wet)

So, get out from in front of the computer
and do something outside today!
Revel in the sunshine.
Don't look back on today as another
missed opportunity.

Or my favorite - put on your Nikes and
Just Do It!

Advice taken. Repeat after me: I will not sit in front of the computer screen for more than the time it takes to post a comment on Susan's blog. Then I will get up, fix some tea, load the dishwasher, and go sit on the back deck and converse with the flowers, trees, bees, and birds for a while.

Farmers around here are making hay like crazy. The corn should be far more than knee-high by the Fourth of July, and June is bustin' out all over here in lovely farm country. There's beans and sorghum coming up everywhere. The cattle are fattening in the field, the hogs are doing what hogs should do, and the hens and chicks are getting plump and pretty. Can't wait for the farm stands to start opening up.

Hope you have a wonderful day. I will think of you as I go about my activities -- outside looking at the wonders of the world.

Well, I WOULD follow your excellent advice, except it's cold and it's dark (it's 11:22 pm and winter here!)
Tomorrow I'll get outside again with Ben...just like today where he played in the sandpit and I sat in the shade nearby reading a book. Very peaceful.

Have a great day Susan!

I love the pictures of the hay bales!!
I always say their shape remind me of the pieces of bubblegum I used to get when I was a child...

I've been neglecting my blog reading these last few days as I have been traveling around looking at hay bales and practicing my driving skills. I generally stay out of doors once winter is over. I post my blog in the morning and then I'm outside until dark. I've always been an outdoorsy person.
