Just waiting on the sunshine

The folk in the newspaper said “we will be close to the record low overnight” but I don’t believe they were speaking of my farm. We got well below the record. It was 43 degrees on the porch thermometer at the man-shed this morning. That’s chilly for August. That is unless you live in Antarctica (if you don’t believe me ask a penguin).

Hershey Dog is curled up on the pillows in her dog house awaiting the sun so she can layout and absorb its (sic) rays warmth. Chuck Cat is positioned comfortably on the wicker table deck side looking to the east as well. Me. I’m stuck on the couch under a blanket next to an opened window remembering the 100 degree weather we’ve had over the past couple of months wondering why anyone would live in a nasty climate like this… Continuously changing. Usually uncomfortable. Rarely perfect.

Maybe I should get up and close the windows…


Tiarra and Khluckee meandering about in the additional area added to their pen yesterday. The colt has decided that it’s big enough to use as a race track allowing for running in big circles. Poor mom’s been working up a sweat trying to keep up with the kid. The exercise is good for her. 🙂 It’s good for all of us.
