Heatwave Continues

Lowri - Yet another day of doing nothing <sigh>  We just stayed around in the house in the air conditioning.  Just because it was 102 degrees.  I could have still done some herding.  I am sure of it.

Kearney - Well, TM didn't have time when it was somewhat cooler.  She worked in the garden, picked some corn and peas, checked on the livestock and grass - it is almost gone.  Then she went to town and did some shopping, went to the mini-farm to finish up there, came back to PR's and fixed the hose to the automatic waterer for the birds.  Up at the house, she did laundry, fixed a late lunch and then shaved Daisy. 

Lowri - <snort, snort> She really is a Peeking Knees now.  Shoot, you can see her knees, her toes, everything.

Kearney - Tonight, just at dark, TM went down to turn on the water for the garden.  After she hooked up the hose and turned it on, a HUGE, I mean HUGE, BIG, GINORMUS, black snake - I would say slithered, but nothing that big slithers - away from the hose right where she was.  I was proud of TM, she didn't run shrieking, she was more interested in seeing how big it really was.   She came up and told PR it was five feet long.  That is bigger than any snake I want to see!!!!


  1. That big ol' snake will help keep critters from eating the garden. So even though he's ginormous, he's a big help. I hope this heat breaks soon. It's been between 98 and 100 degrees here every day for weeks. We're pretty tired of not being able to go out and play.

  2. EEEK! Sorry, I would have been shrieking if it startled me--I screamed like a little girl when I almost ran into the racoon on my deck a couple weeks ago!

  3. I'm tired of our heatwave in Colorado, so tomorrow I'm going to ALASKA!!! Its only supposed to be in the mid 60's all week!
