Working in the Heat
William and I finally got our sign up at the end of the driveway. I am very pleased with it but it sure caused lots of problems making it. We decided if we were going to get anything done we would have to ignore the heat and keep working. I am a grouch when I am hot but William put up with me and we finished most of our projects we had planned for this week. William decided if he wanted any rest it was time for him to get back in his big truck and hit the road. He is leaving for Oregon and says he should have plenty of time to rest up for his next time home! I brought Sharon's hen down to mate with my rooster and they seem very happy together. We haven't gotten any eggs from her yet but she loves being petted and picked up. Topper is just happy to have a mate with him as he was lonely. Have to keep them both away from other chickens as they try to peck their head feathers off. We had about 10 drops of rain this afternoon but a nice breeze for few minutes helped cool us. I feel for the road workers and construction workers as they have to be burning up in this heat. I hope our winter is as cold as our summer is hot. Can you guess I love cold weather? Everyone have a great evening and instead of counting everything that has gone wrong today, count all the blessings God has given us.
