    106 today

    106 outside here today. Not too bad, we have Don's dry heat, only 17% humidity. Kids are outside playing. At least they are not playing video games. Only 3 more days and we are going back to just double digits
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.

    We've got 104 here. I got up and ran the sprinklers on the flower beds this morning and watered all the pots. Probably will be repeating for the next few days.

    Put up some hay yesterday. Would hate to see what the temp is in the haymow today! Moved cows and calves to the back pasture, brought up all the feeder calves and they are in a dry lot and bought silage bags to supplement their grain diet. Did chores, topped all water troughs off and took today off. This is the one or two days per year it would be nice to have air conditioning.

    In Don's neck of the woods (as well as where I am these days), 17% humidity is almost muggy.

    And regardless of the humidity, 106º is way too dang hot.

    We didn't reach triple digits that I'm aware of, but I did notice the dogs were laboring a little hard earlier this afternoon...So, being it was about that time of the season , I grabbed the hose and let them give 'me' a bath I think the yard and myself received the majority of the h2o though...eh, they luved it just the same. Now we're all veggin out in the AC

    Someone said 110 here tomorrow.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.
