Well, lets see. First there was the July 4th weekend, then a sisters' trip, then extra caring time for an injured gosling. Things have been out of sync since my return but now I am writing again.
Helena, the gosling, hurt her wing, initially, but she recovered mostly after we bandaged her up. Then she removed the bandage but looked fine. This morning we were awoken by the geese squawking so I went down to see what the fuss was. Helena, was sitting in a corner of the run, injured again. I think it was one of those "I feel better so I will go out and get in trouble again" things. This time it seems to be more her leg or .......... ??? No one will tell me what happened so I just have to come up with a theory and treat accordingly.
The heat isn't much help, either. The big accomplishment, today, was cleaning out the refrigerator. I also fulled some yarn and needle felted most of a box turtle for a friend at camp. I guess it is going to be in the 90's for a couple more days so I will have to continue projects in the house. I picked up my summer knitting again, yesterday. I have also been spinning in the house instead of the Hot fiber studio. Most of the outside projects have been put on hold. I do try to slip something in when I first get up if it is still cool. I am SO glad that the nights cool off substantially unlike some places I know.
Most of the time, the animals take care of themselves and I have very little that I have to do for them. Heat and injuries are draining for all of us, though. Today, John suggested going away for a month in the summer. That sounded good to me. Maybe we will try it next year, there are only 5 or 6 more weeks of summer left this year.
