Night-time Projects

I must wake up to go to my healthcare job at 1:30 in the morning. It is 10:05 pm. So naturally i am moving 50 bags of dirt from the car to the ground and from the ground to the shed and planting seedlings in makeshift planter boxes by flashlight. Time waits for no-one. The projects at the homestead must get done if i want to reap the fruits of them later in the year, so for now i am doing most of my work on the homestead at night when im not at my job in the city. Thank God for strong coffee.

Tonight it is cool and clear. You can see a thousand brilliant stars against the jet black sky. There is a breeze and the coyotes can be heard yipping at a distance. There is a firefly trapped in the house and it is blinking. It is time for a nap.
