So soupy this morning.
Last night Gary left the kitchen windows open (he could not have watched the weather report) and we woke up to 81 degrees inside! Not only that, it was as humid as a sauna. Can't stand much more of this. Our 1823 farmhouse knuckles under when it's this hot for such a long time. Normally it feels like we have central air...which we do not have! I've had two fans going out there all day long, but it only pushes the heat around.
Gary spent all morning down at the Arts Festival as a volunteer. He got home a little after 1:30 and right then we had some VERY HEAVY RAIN! It even left standing water in the outdoor arena.
The temperature dropped about 10 degrees, but the kitchen was still more like hell's kitchen. We opened the windows back up and the temperature went down about 3 degrees.
Two days ago Gary installed a window air conditioner in our bedroom and it occurred to me that if I closed the French doors to the dining room I could keep the living room, library and bedroom at a more reasonable temperature. At least half of the downstairs felt better.
In protest to the day, I spent the afternoon on our bed and watched the Olympics.
Dinner was sloppy Joes, corn and leftover grilled pineapple.
Phoebe and I went out to do chores a little before 7.
(We did not get THAT much rain...the wheel barrow was next to a roof)
First I took the masks off the girls so I could grab some pictures.
The light was wild.
Tucked them in and headed back to the fans.
In a couple days we could get more rain...maybe there will be some green in our future.
Today we had our home visit to get approval for adopting "Little Wonder."
We passed the test and I can't wait until he can come to the farm.
I hope talking about it does not put the whammie on the process.
Such a cute boy.
