So humid… animals not happy… people not happy either

The last 3 days it has been so humid that when I go out to take care of the animal or work in the garden I come back in looking like I just stepped out of the shower.

The chickens are lazy and not laying eggs much. The dogs are lazy inside… Not the dog days of summer because the dogs don’t like the humidity either 😉 But on the up side if the weather man is actually right for once then it should be cooling off (a little) next week. If your in this heat and humidity I hope you are finding ways to keep you and your animals cool. (Quick idea: chickens and dogs love cantaloupe and watermelon 😉 )

Heat Wave… hopefully waving bye bye

It is so hot again… so hot I want to crawl into an ice bath. On top of the heat our AC went out yesterday and it’s not fixed yet. To keep cool we have al the fans going, extra floor fans on, were going for rides with the boys in the car with the AC going, and opening widows around the house where the sun isn’t shining in to increase air flow.

This evening it is finally cooling and Grayson has been finding a way to stay cool…

He has loved hanging out in the windows. We have found him in different windows depending on the sun. I think its not only the air flow, but he has loved hearing and seeing different animals and bugs go by.

They say the coming week we are supposed to be in the 80’s again so hopefully that will help. When you don’t have AC or a commodity like it… makes you very grateful for it. Praying its fixed soon. Hope the weather is nice in your neck of the woods 🙂

Happy Summer Weekend!

We had a couple of nice weather day’s this week, a couple of rainy and stormy days, and a couple of hot days. The dogs were happy to go out on the nice days and as always Chase was out with us even when it was hot. We got some more chores done around the property and started on some inside things that need to get done. Inside chores are best done during the hot parts of the day.

Polar Bear show

The heat reminded me of the polar bear above, that we saw at the Zoo in Louisville, KY when we took our trip in May. It was a hot day and he was just having so much fun jumping in the water and swimming all over his enclosure. It was like he was putting on a show for everyone and the more “awwww’s” and “wow’s” he got the better his show got. And he really seemed to enjoy the nice cool water to take his swim in.

Hope you are having a nice summer and getting to take a cool dip when you need to so you can cool off from this summer heat 😉

Shaping up…

It’s shaping up to be the first HOT day of the year.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The chickens are getting ready by keeping hydrated…

 

 

 

 

 

 

The dogs are enjoying what is left of the cool grass…

My husband and I are off to run errands. I thought I would leave you today with a couple of pictures of the tractors my husband bought over the weekend (see yesterdays post https://seasonsgirl.wordpress.com/2012/04/15/look-what-my-h…d-brought-home/).
