Quiet post-holiday vegging.....

We have no energy today and don't know why.  We didn't over-do it on the weekend and no partying happened, so why??   I think it's the heat.  Yesterday, we had this....


Dark clouds moved through.  I could hear thunder in them, but nothing fell on our homestead.  Oh, the smell was wonderful.  There is nothing like the smell of rain in the distance in the mountains.  Kind of a dirty, clean smell, and if you can smell cool, it was there, too.  I love the smell of Arizona rain.

It lasted only a few hours, then the heat starting ramping up.  We are going to work on the chicken coop and run, tomorrow.  They need their shade cover on as they don't want to come out in the heat.  HEAT!!  What am I saying?   The 90 degrees we are occasionally having are nothing like the 115 we were used to in the valley in summer.   These girls don't know how easy they have it.


We added straw to their run and sprinkled sunflower kernels and meal worms in.   They had a ball scratching for hours.  It WAS a holiday, after all!

We did the obligatory BBQ's ribs for dinner and took it easy for the rest of the night.  

I'd say we did the Memorial holiday quite well.
