Happy Birthday Donnie.............I don't know when it is but I hope

Thanks, CB and GRAYMARE:
 Donnie has had a busy birthday weekend, and the end isn't quite in sight.  He has the lower field ready to bale and as soon as that starts, my day will get busier loading the hay into the barn.   No rain so far, we had a frightening sprinkle this morning, but it passed on by without doing any damage to the hay.   I haven't heard Donnie's prediction on how many bales he thinks we will get, but according to the photo he just sent me, it should be at least twice what we got there in May.  



Photo hot off the i-phone.... Very Happy

That looks like it's going to be a nice field of hay.

Trudy, I had to have a new drivers license picture taken last November. Oh my gosh! That was terrible.

Hot and humid is back... for three days. It was a good day to get some embroidery done. I have three projects to get done in the next three weeks. If all goes well, one will be done tomorrow, the second and third will be done by the end of the week.

The lake was busy today, but as usual, everything came to a halt about 4:00. That's about the time the weekenders pack up to go home.

Happy belated birthday Donnie.  Hope it was a great day.

The rain has stopped for a couple of days.  Now it's hotter than hell and the bugs are terrible, I look like I'm going north to Alaska when I walk Ace or feed the cats.  Only my face is exposed and still they managed to bite me.  Under my chin and on my eye brow.  GEESSHHHHH

The Hawaii team won the Little League Championship yesterday.  Good for them.  People were telling me what a great bunch of kids they are, so polite and supportive of each other and those around them.

GRAYMARE:  I love to run the vacuum.  I even sweep Ace and the cats.  Funny but my crazy animals loved to have the sweeper run on them.  I'll be over next week, keep the vacuum ready for me.

ELLEN:  My drivers license photo isn't too awful, I've had much worse over the years.

Off to the dentist this morning to have the place where I had the surgery last year checked out.  I'm sure it's fine, never had a problem with it but the dentist needs to inspect his work.

I wish we could send some of our extra water to the west to help with the fires. Even though it hasn't rained for two days, the water level is up about 15 inches. It is not quite to flood stage, but the docks are about to start sprouting buckets filled with water to keep them from floating. If the level doesn't start to drop, it will be a bad weekend for boaters on the last summer holiday. The DNR will restrict boating to no wake no wash. I'm going to tie the jet ski to the lift so it doesn't decide to go for a stroll by itself.

Well the hay is in the hayloft. Donnie and I are happy with the quality of the hay, but exhausted. We did all the work ourselves. Now I have to get in some hay from other folks and finish storing it for winter. I don't want to be caught short in late winter.

Did you hear what The Farmer's Almanac said? They said we are in store for a long, snowy winter, well into spring. Another late spring, which will cause the hay to grow late again. Whoopee.


I had a lesson on Ivan with Lori this evening. Ivan was slow getting started, but his energy came up as the shade and temps improved. It was really hot. Lori rode Areion, but we discovered Areion is still having some limping problems while under saddle. I bet she is going to have to have shoes. Her feet just seem too tender for barefoot. I didn't ride Areion since we didn't want to trot on her.

It was 91 degrees today with lots of humidity. I was swimming inside my clothes. We gave Ivan, Areion and Daisy baths after our lesson to cool them off. Even Daisy, who just stood around was sweaty.

Today was John McCain's funeral.............we lost an honorable man, for sure.
The funeral service was really lovely. It made me proud for Arizona.

Now two more to go..............

It's cooler here too.  WHEW those above 90 with 90% humidity were killer days.   It's raining today but even though it seems funny to say after all the rain we had, we need a little rain.

Not much going on this week, a week of down time.  I finished scrubbing my kitchen floor yesterday.  I'm getting too told be down there on my hands and knees.  I have to do it in steps and take a day or two off in between.  This getting old & doing house work is hard work.

My dentist appointment went well.  All is good with my teeth.  I turned that into a shopping day, stopped at Staples for printer ink and copy paper and Kohl's for a new pair of Sketchers.  Love those sneakers, got them on sale too with a 20% off coupon & a $5 off reward.

Making a dinner today for one of our Pastors whose wife had serious surgery and can't cook.  He has been paralyzed since his neck surgery went awry and do a thing either.  What a nightmare for them.
