Hot...hot....hot

No...it's not snowing in Virginia...it is hotter than blue blazes; while I was on the tractor cutting the grass under those Pear trees today, I kept thinking about how pretty they looked all covered with snow...they look pretty nice when they're blooming in the Spring, and when they start to turn russet in the Fall. And since I really LIKE to cut grass, they looked great to me today, too!!! But that photo just makes it seem cooler....that's my story and I'm sticking to it!!! :)

Back on the Farm is where we are....Bob and Paul are doing their "projects"...the biggest of which is trenching, laying and completing new water lines and power lines over to the machine shop, our parking spot, and the front pasture. They have mostly completed this little chore. My job is to cook breakfast and dinner, and I love doing it!!! Usually I will run out to the hen house for fresh eggs in the morning...to snatch a still-warm egg.
Colonel Sanders (the loudest rooster) makes sure we are awake every day at 0'dark thirty and the guys get an early start, trying to beat the heat!!!

I did have to break down and do one of the dreaded "Three P's"....which I don't ever do. (For those that don't know, the 3 P's are Pee, Poo, & Puke.....all of which are abundant here at the Farm) Katie is so good about taking care of the animals...she mucks the stalls and cleans up when the dogs or kitties or whoever throws up; so I will cook and clean, and cut grass and help the guys with the projects...but I don't do the 3 P's!! BUT Paul hurt his back the other day, and he had to take the horse trailer to get Heaven and George.....and there was a huge pile of......you guessed it......POO....in the trailer.....so I had to oblige!!
Don't worry...it will not become a habit!!!! (That stuff is heavy when it's wet!) :)

So, life is pretty good here at the Farm and I am enjoying every minute...the time is going by so quickly and it feels so good to have life in the slow lane, for just a little while!!

I was in town and passed by a kiosk that said..."think snow!" It didn't help much cause it was still hot and humid.
Sounds like you are having a great time on the farm and it sounds like a wonderful place to be.

Have fun!

I made a promise, I will NOT complain about heat this summer. We stayed so cold all winter that it actually feels good even at 92. The humidity is what gets me. What a beautiful picture! Have a great time and when you travel, please stay safe.

We've got two acres that needs cutting if you REALLY love it.Had enough rain that I don't think it will stop growing until August. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna.

Have a great time at the farm. Wish we were there with our grandkids. If Andrew were there you wouldn't have to mow! He would ride the mower all day every day.

And, by the way...I needed that snow picture today as it is quite hot in Texas!

Hugs to you both.

Despite having to get involved with the 3 P's (thanks for the explanation, I had never heard it) it sounds like you guys are having fun. Hope the back gets better!
