We're Havin' A Heat Wave....

Buggy and Muggy with even more on the way tomorrow.
They have already put out a heat advisory.
 I feel sorry for the horses when it gets like this.  It was 90 most of the day... at least they have many shady options and a fan.
 Went down to the bank, Agape and Wegmans...totally forgot I was getting a hay delivery.
 When I got back home they were bringing the second load and it all worked out.

Finn and Coop had basketball camp this morning and spent the afternoon at the farm.  I wanted to take them to Tina's pool, but they just wanted to crash.  Must have been a hard workout.  Around 5 Gary took them home, along with some freshly picked spinach and strawberries.
 Dinner was VERY simple.  Veggie burgers and a big salad.  Not in a cooking mood.

 When I went out to feed the girls, they all kept moving as the bugs were out.

 Can you tell?
 After they got in there stalls I sponged them off with a peppermint wash.  Abbe and Berlin loved it...Maggie and Angel were not too sure that it was a good idea.

 Left the fan on for least until it cooled down a bit.

 Even tho it was getting late, I decided to mow the lawn.  Tomorrow it's going to be too hot and at that time the yard was completely in the shade.  There are several big old cherry trees in the back of our property and man! this year there are thousands of them.  They are small and sweet.  Have to pick some before the birds take over.  Of course I had to grab a handful everytime I went by with the mower.

 The sun started to set and I had a long way to go.

 I actually had to put the lights on to finish the job by 9:25.

Just got an update from the Manatee.
 We rode with Sandy, Jeff and Hatch to Spencerport...
 The next day they went to Fairport....

 and now they are in Newark.
What a way to spend your vacation.
Look forward to seeing them on their return trip.
Night all.

What's It Gonna Be?

What a crazy day.  A brilliant morning full of humidity.

 The quilts were drying in spite of it.
 Phoebe and Gucci were sitting on their observation deck....

 (They are going to the groomer on Wednesday and I bet they will love getting rid of that hair)
 Karen was trimming some weeds (thank you very much)...
 and I went out to pick more spinach.

 Gary is doing a great job with the gardens...that's a lot of weeding.

After I washed the spinach and put it in the frig I went back out and picked some strawberries.
 A little after noon it started to rain off and on.  The later it got the harder it came down and we were getting a lot of thunder and lightning.

Gave up and put the girls in.  Don't like that lightning.

We ate an early dinner that was an instant replay of a couple nights ago.  We are into spinach and will eat it as long as it keeps growing.
 I had frozen a couple of the biscuits I made the other day so we had shortcake for dessert.
 Went back out to the barn through a torrential downpour and grained the girls.  Now I am done for the day.
 Night all.
