Haying Time


A few days ago I went somewhere - would you believe I don't remember where? - and snapped these pictures of some hay fields. It is so great to see the hay all cut and laying to dry, and then the rakes coming along and putting it in rows. And finally the huge round bales scattered all over the fields. Not to mention the wonderful smell of fresh hay!

And this last picture is of the bale of hay we bought today for Eeyore and Jenny. It is one of last years, so it was only $40. I hear this years has gone up to $45 a bale. We had to buy one because it has been so hot the grass is all dried up and with no rain it can't grow and replenish itself. When Ronnie put it in place, they dove right in and haven't left it all day!

It was 105 (regular) degrees today. And the forecast for the next week or more is 104 on up every day. Thank the Lord for air conditioning. The dogs are spending a lot of time indoors too. I hope you all are staying fairly cool.

Until next time, take care and God bless.
