I made little bags for each of the kiddos for our trip. They can use these in the motor home, and have some fun with their little art bags.
With this heat we are having, I quickly wound up with bananas that looked like this.
I moved the little pool to the concrete on the patio. I hate the mess it makes on the grass. I put an old comforter down on the patio and laid the pool right on the top. It is filling up now.
While it was filling, I did some of this.
One of the things that I stocked up on with the Walgreen coupons was Yardley Of London soap. I have one of them in my bathroom off the pool and it smells divine!!!! The whole room smells good!
I have been brewing an extra large pot of coffee every morning, and then about midday, I begin to enjoy these.
Fill your cup with crushed ice, pour your cooled coffee inside about 3/4 way to top. Stir in a little bit of Hershey's chocolate syrup, or brand you prefer. Stir really well, then top with a splash of fat free 1/2 & 1/2, and there you have a delightfully tasty iced mocha coffee to enjoy. Sans the Starbuck's price! Try it. You will be making extra coffee too!
I love to walk into my kitchen and see these beautiful tomatoes and basil and things from the garden. I cook with them every day.
My chickens are really suffering from this heat. I have one little lady who is particularly bothered by it. Having difficulty walking at times, and despite water dunks, and misting, and all that I can do to cool her, she is still suffering. I am concerned about going away and leaving them in someone else's care. I don't feel I can ask them to come water dunk and mist them several times a day like I do.
Greg says..."Survival of the fittest Bunny" He calls me Bunny. And so it is, I suppose. Chicken farming can be hard sometimes. Losing any of them is very upsetting for me.
I am going to have Mr. G draw a name for the bunting giveaway on Friday. I have a couple of personal emails requesting that I add their names because for whatever reason they cannot comment. So if you still want in, scroll back to the last post before this one, and enter a comment.
Time for me to put my suit on and get wet!!!
Toodles from me on this hot hump day in So. Cal!
