has been the foremost thought
in my mind for several weeks now.
With the thermometer being
over 100 for many, many days
in a row…my desire to do
much of anything has gone away.
We are watering our garden,
and flowers. We planted seed
for a new lawn in the very front
this spring – so watering it also.
Otherwise, everything would be
dead and brown.
Even with it being cool in
the house, I am not really in
the mood to do much of anything.
Oh, yes, I still cook, do laundry, clean house…those
type of mundane jobs. Did a bit of decorating
for the 4th of July…but it came down before I got any
pictures to post.
One thing we have done is host three parties.
Outdoor ones, evening time…with a breeze blowing the
deck is tolerable with good food and excellent conversation.
The first two were church related. First one, was the men’s group
invited their wife and children for a cookout. Normally, the men meet
for a breakfast at the church. Second one,
was a Sunday School Class get together.
Third one was family and friends
celebrating the 4th. Average attendance
was about 30 to 35.
This past week Grandson Max stayed with us.
Being seven years old means talk and motion
constantly…just wears us out. Also, with
the heat he could not go outside much – which
disappointed him as that cut down on the fishing and bike riding.
With the heat being so hot, we have not had any rain
to speak of in months…ponds are drying up. The ranchers
are having to feed their cattle now in the summer months.
The grass for the hay is not growing much because of the
heat and drought…so bales of hay will be expensive
I know – yes, say it – I have moaned and groaned through
out this posting…but wanted you to know what was happening
here to us (me).
