Hot!!!

This weekend was incredibly hot. Highs in the mid 90's, I think......


So Sunday we had to paint the new show boxes that a friend of ours made Jessie for the fair. Correction - she did. I started to paint them, and then she wanted to help, and she took off and primered and painted both of them. I just had to do around the hardware and the seams on the insides.

So I sat on the swing and kept her company.




While we did that, Todd and Tyler mowed the weeds in the horses pasture. In the air conditioned cab of a neighbor's tractor.


Then we all headed to Todd's parents so the kids could swim. Tyler figured out he could wear these snorkle goggles (even though they were to tight) and he could swim underwater using the mouthpiece as well from one end of the pool to the other.



When we came home, there was a steer and a pig to wash. And pictures to take.



But all the fun is coming to an end. I did my entries for our county fair. Am I insane as I added preserved food and baked goodies (bread, cinamon rolls and a chocolate cake) to the mix? And I ventured into the garden - the roma tomatoes are about ready to take over. But that is good, as I hear ketchup and tomato sauce calling my name:)

Have a great sunny day!
Kris

Sounds like a great Sunday, Kris! It's great how Jessie just jumps right in, afraid of no task, most certainly not painting. Definitely connects her to all that must be done to show at the fair. And I see you've a little fish on your hands, too! Sweet summer days. Enjoy while they last!

That's wonderful that she wanted to paint it herself! She's very enterprising young lady!

We have been hot up here, too, with a high humidity, so I can't imagine what it is like down there! whew, how can you do anything in that heat?

She did a great job of painting her boxes..........

I am looking forward to hearing about your fair experience.......

It is hot here too......... In the high 80's......... Unusual for us to have days of hot weather. But it cools off a night. I am glad because we have no airconditioning.

I am sincerely jealous! Of; someone who paints! I've got lots of work for that girl if you want to loan her out! Just kidding, but its very nice of her to do the work. I bet most parents have to do most of that work themselves. And of your being able to and knowning how to can. I'd love to experience that. Though knowing me, it would only be the one time and then I'd decide someone else could do the work!
I hope you get a cool front soon. We're experiencing one and its cloudy and rather nice out.
