It's Very Hot!


We are well into our 3rd week of temps in the 90's! And the 8 day forecast is for more of the same. It's kind of hard to get used to it considering it's only the first part of June. I was looking at the trees in the back yard today and they have lots of brown, dying leaves on them. Waaayy to early for that! What's a person to do?! It's any where from 70 to 80 when you get up at 6 in the morning!

For that matter, what's a dog(s) to do? These guys were laying around in the shade of a little tree in the back, so I decided to help them out.

This little pool I bought for them just fits in the circle area made by the young trees. So I tried to level it up and fill it with water. Now, wouldn't you know, they won't get in it, but they love to drink from it. And pick out sticks I throw in for them to retrieve. It's also a neat place for one of my lawn chairs in the shade. I sat there today and did my devotional reading from the Bible. Was a nice change from the kitchen table!

I know you are probably getting tired of looking at my tomato patch, but my gosh are they growing! I think Ronnie went wild with the Miracle Gro! There are some fruit on them, but a long way from being ready to eat. Can't wait!

It seems the whole country is having some kind of weather problem: heat, fire, floods, rain etc. And hurricane season is almost here too. I wonder what message the good Lord is trying to send to us? No use trying to figure it out I guess; just prepare yourself and be ready! :) Even through all this, there are still many things I am grateful for and give thanks for.

I hope you are all "weathering" through. Until next time, take care and God Bless.

Hello, Ardith~ hope you finally got some rain... we had a couple of showers over the weekend. (Along with some really bad thunderstorms, which I could have done without...)
Your tomato plants are looking good~ it won't be long until you have some good BLT sandwiches! Try to stay cool!
