No Photo Day
Today has been a very hot (100F) very humid day. As much as we tried to make it a nice relaxing cooling day it didn't happen. After morning feeding and a breakfast of french toast the boys headed to the pool to cool off. Woody decided he wanted a buzz cut so I gave him a haircut. He said he felt lighter and cooler. The boys got back in the pool in time for our hired hand to come get them. He had accidentally left the gate unlatched so the goats and chickens got out. Spending a while catching and putting them up had them all hot and sweaty so back to the pool they went. I fixed lunch and after they ate we went and picked up rabbit and dog food. Back home had the boys building up their bonfire in the heat. Of course they got hot and had to go in the pool to cool off. (thank goodness for that half price sale on pools at walmart) We did the afternoon feeding and milking and the boys rode bikes for a few minutes then back in the pool. They came out to eat hamburgers for supper and now are playing scrabble. We are all hot and tired. Tomorrow is suppose to be another hot day with thunderstorms then we are suppose to get back in the 80's for a few days. Blinkin still hasn't had her babies yet. I still haven't had time to take any photos but promise tomorrow will be photo day. I don't dare leave the boys alone for a minute. They can think of too much to get into. Went out to find 2 of them skinny dipping in the pool. They couldn't understand what was wrong with that... boys! They love to try to beat each other with the water noodles. They think catching goats is fun and wanted to know if they could let them out again so they could catch them. They did take Diva, DiDi and Sonya on a walk. Put the leashes on them and walked them down the road. The girls loved eating the leaves along the way but thought the boys were strange. Diva would just look at them and roll her eyes. I seem to be doing that alot too. If you ever find yourself in need of a torch all you need is a stick, duct tape and straw. You duct tape the straw to the end of the stick and then light it. Its suppose to help you when you play a game of hide n seek in the dark unless you have a grandma that wants to keep the house and land from going up in flames. The pool is only 3 and half feet deep and one of the grandsons couldn't understand why he was told no when he ask if he could jump off the roof of the RV into the pool. I did get them to watch TV long enough for me to get a couple of soap orders together. We did make it to the post office to get the winners packages in the mail. I did 5 loads of laundry yesterday and Zack already has a load of dirty clothes. I am telling you boys make more laundry than girls. The boys will be doing their own laundry tomorrow. They wash their own dishes after each meal, make their beds, and clean their room so they are helping. I just never know what new plan they will come up with and need to be on my toes. Hopefully tonight will bring a good nights sleep and tomorrow I will be able to take some pictures of whatever the boys decide to get into.
