Hot Stuff

Now I can see why thecrazysheeplady, who lives in Kentucky,
hates summer.  If the weather was like this all the time I would not be functioning
with much energy.
Gary was out watering the new plants in the gardens by 6:30am.

After chores I got cleaned up and went down to the Farm Market, Wegmans
and Tractor Supply (where I bought the dogs a kiddie pool).

 Woody, Doug and some pals were the entertainment today.
 Every time they play, this young woman opens with "You Are My Sunshine."
She is not part of the band, but loves doing this.

 I got home before Gary went down to the Welcome Center for duty.
 The pool I got for Phoebe and Little Wonder was small and it took no 
time for me to fill it.  The heat was brutal and they were in it
3 times today.  Pretty soon they might go in on their own.

 At four we were going to a party hosted by Margay and Ulpi and
I decided to bring watermelon.  Got that ready early afternoon so
I could put it in the frig to get it nice and cold.

 Doesn't he looked thrilled???
They both had a dip before we left.
 When we got in the car the temperature said 100 degrees!!!!!
It went down to a balmy 96 by the time we got to the party.

 As per usual, the food was outstanding!

Seeing that we have no air conditioning, I was not comfortable all day and could not handle the heat.  Home around 6 to cool off before doing chores.
 The barn was cooler than outside, but not that great.
The good bugs.  I sponged the girls and soaked myself.
If it's this hot tomorrow, I don't think I will be going on the Ukulele Cruise!
Night all.

  1. Same here with the heat. I don’t know how you do it without air conditioning. I need to have it to cool off. Our crew got hosed off and put in their stalls early.
