Do you know how unusual this is for us up here in Tundra Country? We are setting all kinds of records for heat with no real relief in sight. Thank goodness for air conditioning! I know for a lot of you this is just a normal part of summer but for those of us who like temps in the 70’s it’s a bit daunting.
It’s been way too hot to ride the horses, they have been sweating just standing under the fans. Scooter is doing well. Funsize and I rode together one day and he was much calmer being out with Lil’ Bud rather then with Miss T racing and tearing around on Kipper. He wanted to run too but I’m not really into that much any more especially where he is so big and strong and my balance just ‘ain’t’ what it used to be.
The project continues on the sunroom. They put the radiant heat tubes down one day this week and then covered them with some kind of stuff that looks like soupy cement. I think they called it Jipcreek. I will be sooooooooooo glad when it is done and the crews are gone.
We are working on Paws On Parade now at the humane society. I do most of my work from home making calls to get sponsors. Noodles is such a good helper holding all of my paperwork in place! He knows how much we love all of our animals at BHS and wants to raise lots of money to take good care of them. :o)
He also likes to help me in the barn. Scooter is rather curious about him. I’m glad he knows enough to hide under the Gator when the boys are around!
Scoot is a big boy, he must be close to 16 hands. He is so good with T and D, they just love him and he will put his head right down so that they can scratch his head. The vet says that he is too chunky but so am too I so we make a good pair! :o)
The raspberries are ripe now. I love to just stand there and eat them. I have to walk right by them when I go to the barn so I keep them pretty well picked. This one was gone two seconds after I took the picture……..
We are going to the lake today and tomorrow after church we are headed to The Lobster Pound with family that is in town for the week. Son, DIL and the grands are going to Boston today to see a Red Sox game tonight. I hope it cools off as it was about 120* on the field this week!!! I’d rather be at the lake!!! :o)
