When we were talking, all I could think of was spending time in the rivers and creeks because it was SO hot. Then last night, a cool breeze came up out of the north and drove out the humidity so today's 91 degrees feels much better than yesterday's. Beau has been taking alot of dust baths to cool of. The sheep and chickens have been finding the tree area cooler than the barn it seems. At least the evenings are still tolerable and I love to go down and hang out with the critters around 5:00.
For yesterday's happy hour I took strawberries to share. Beau wasn't interested but the chickens were ecstatic. Sarah, my fruit and veggie sheep came down in time to get the last one. Today I want to see if they will eat the pumpkin/zucchini that got big when I wasn't looking. Karen says any squash is good if you cook it long enough. I would add --- and if you combine it with butter or better yet chocolate.
Looking forward to a low-key few days. Actually, most days now are low-key.
