As soon as I walked out the door, I was surrounded by a warm preview for the day.
Once again, Kate (Chicago) had sent us her heat. Whatever happens there, we get it the next day.
Fortunately we had some pretty hefty breezes...warm ones.
I tried taking some shots of this butterfly, but it would not stand still. He was waiting for me out in the paddock.
The "pond" in the big pasture finally dried up and I was able to mow down the rest of the buttercups before the farrier got here at 2. Earlier I dragged the outdoor arena...need to get that rototiller back up here.
I brought my three horses into the grooming room and sponged them off while they were waiting for their trims. The fan was going and because the space is insulated, it was pretty cool. They seemed to enjoy getting out of the sun for awhile and were perfect while their feet were being done.
I have a tip for the day. If you live in a warm climate, get yourself some "scrub" tops and wear them to do chores. Nothing is more comfortable. I must have 6 or 7 ...standard equipment during the summer. Add a pair of shorts and you are good to go.
Hurried through evening chores and put the ponies back out.
Tonight, Cooper "graduated" from kindergarten. Of course we were all there for his play and slide show.
It was all about a garden...
Cooper was a frog.
The program ended with these little cuties coming out in caps and gowns.
I'd say that Cooper was really enjoying the festivities.
Gary and I went to the air conditioned Diner for dinner. Between food and the heat, I am pooped.
