COME TEST THE WATER!

Okay, so we experienced another day of heat and humidity. I'm sounding like a broken record I know. Nope, I am not going to complain as the end of such weather is in sight.Well, then I suppose, we are going to have to deal with a storm named Earl. My personal feeling is people who reside in Maine really don't get to worked up over such things, especially a storm named Earl. For the most part people who call Maine home are quite self reliant, we don't "rile" too easily over this weather hype. If you can survive the ice storm of "98" (we were without power for 11 long days) without evacuating your home you can pretty much handle any situation the weather has to offer. Fortunately for us a wood stove is our main heat source and along with generous friends who shared their generator with us we survived the winter weather ordeal. Enough talk about winter- lets get back to the heat. Hearing that today was going to be hotter than yesterday, I decided to let the girls out for an early morning romp. I offered yogurt with blueberries for breakfast, filled the girl's water with ample amounts of added ice and left them with scratch and grain. I joined some friends and we headed to the family camp in Denmark, Maine. It was oh so hot, not a bit of wind moving nor a cloud in the sky. Did I complain, nope not once....
you see I was to busy floating in the lake, a lake who's water was bath water warm....
and have planned a repeat for tomorrow. Wishing all you wonderful blog friends could join me, how about next year?

Have a blast and think of us poor blokes sweating while you are in the lake.

Ahhhh, that looks so refreshing. I envy you. Enjoy it. And don't forget to batten down the hatches extra tight on the coop. Make sure Earl doesn't hurt "the girls".

I've never fed my chickens yogurt but I am going to now. It sounds better than my breakfast. Enjoy that beautiful scenery.

I can be there!!! Have fun Julie just a floatin', dreamin', chatting and I am assuming there is some good FOOD involved! Who is that little guy out in the water?

Jenny said...

I would be there too if I could Julie, only if I was, I wouldn't be floating for very long, I'd be sinking as I can't swim! (-: Stay safe!
