They call it a heat wave.....
a tropical heat wave.....
So what if the sky was beautiful....
We had to unload a wagon piled with hay and it just had to be on the east side of the barn where the sun was blasting us.
Butch showed up with a phenomenal load of a grass mix second cutting.
Green and perfect.
Above is his first cutting. This man knows how to do hay.
Barb was doing most of the heavy work, so I got up on the wagon (we hired a kid to help) and threw off the hay, while they stacked. We were all soaked by the time we were done.
Watched Lydia on PBS during lunch, took a shower and ran a few errands. The highlight was being in the air conditioned Wegmans. I positively can't handle 91+ degrees with high humidity.
This afternoon my friend Pam (Sally's daughter) stopped up with her soon to be granddaughter, for a visit with the horses. She provided me with a couple of great back view shots.
Couldn't wait to see the horses....she'd met them through this Journal.
Here, she was trying to talk to Newbie, who was in the shade under the wheelbarrow.
Such a beautiful child.
Could not get enough of the swing.
Then she wanted Pam to get on.
I got so hot doing chores I needed another cold shower (earlier I had given Phoebe and Gucci one).
Then it was time for dinner. Jen was coming up. I just could not cool off and was Miss Crabby.
Kept it simple. Tomato salad.
The best corn of the season....
And what else? Veggie burgers.
Jenny thought you should see hers....she wanted something green on it, like her father's homemade dill pickles....thought my was too boring.
After sitting directly in front of the fan, I started to cool off.
Hey Tina! I put the hibiscus plant out on the back porch awhile ago, and look what popped up today. Should have put it out there for the entire summer....it's really growing.
"Let's see....are there any good movies Kristen and I could go see tonight?"
It's Pony Time.
