William left out tonight heading for Charlotte where he will pick up his tanker and head for IL. He was home for 5 days this time and we got alot of things done around here but we also had the hottest temperatures in years! We sweated it out and did our outdoor work anyway. By bedtime I was ready for a cold shower and sleep with the air conditioner going in the bedroom. Hopefully this heat wave will break soon and we can all move without sweating. We got our mowing, weeding, semi truck washed, moved the ducks to their own lot, built laying boxes for the hens, kick plate put on door and lots of other things. There are still tons of things on our to do list but we at least made a dent in it. I am getting 6 to 7 eggs a day now and some of them are double yolk and even triple yolks! I will be going Thursday to pick up Miss Diva's boy toy. Matthew will be old enough to leave his mom and hopefully will like Miss Diva. William tried to put some spray on Miss Diva to keep the flies from biting her. I had to laugh as he held onto her collar while spraying she was dragging him around and round in circles till he was so dizzy he couldn't stand up. She seemed to laugh at him and I know I did! I shipped out over 30 bars of soap today so tomorrow will be spent making soaps to get my supply built back up. Fixed stuffed tomatoes for supper tonight. Stuffed them with homemade tuna salad and made home fries. Was a nice light meal for the heat. Last night I made salad with veggies from the garden and chopped up grilled chicken breasts to put in them. Will miss having William home to cook for as he really loves to eat. Have lots of housework and bookwork to catch up on as well as everyone's blogs. Hope all of you had a nice weekend. Please keep my daughter Megan and her family in your thoughts and prayers as they are going through some very stressful and sad things right now. Thank each of you for the comments on my dad's birthday. I am so blessed to have had such a wonderful dad. Hug your dad, cherish your family, enjoy your home and count your blessings!
