Remembering the reason for the day.

Monday, Monday what will you be,
I hope not as hot as yesterday, for me.

Yes, yesterday it hit 102 here, and no breeze what so ever, and the gnats. You just couldn't stand to be out there. And it is suppose to be a repeat today. I feel so sorry for people who have to be out in the heat. It just got so hot so fast. Just a months ago we still had snow. But thanks to a SP friend, she gave me a hint on how to stop the gnat from biting, and it really works. I have to go out here in a few minutes and let the horses out in the grove, till about 3 and will let them in and the Dillon bunch out. Yesterday, before I let the horses back in, I went out and cleaned the water out of their waterer so that it would be cold fresh water, and oh, they just drank and drank, I could tell there were so glad to have cold water. Just the little things we can do for them to make there day out there better.

Well, not spending much time here today, have things to do, inside, of course. So you all enjoy your day off and take some me time. Linda.

    Glad the remedy worked for you. No more gnat bites. Also, if you want a cheap way to keep them out of your garden, buy a box of Bounce. Put up spikes and attach a bounce sheet to it. Do this throughout your garden. Within days you find that you don't have any gnats there and also it helps with mosquitoes. I buy the Bounce on sale and use it there as I do not use dryer sheets. It really does work and has been proven by scientific testing. Some university did some research on it. All I know I've been doing that for years in my flower gardens and I hardly have any mosquitoes at all around. Just another little cure for those pesky bugs.

    Have a nice Monday and Memorial Day!
    Later this week it’s supposed to be little cooler-I sure hope so!

    Stay cool today. It is another warm one today. We jumped from Winter to Summer. Just once I'd like to have Spring last 3 months, not a week.

    We had a cool 96 which broke our record of 93. Supposed to be the same to day. My grilling is going to be done indoors today. Won't have the smokiness bbq normally has, but will be bbq just the same. Right now at 10:30 it is 85, so I decided I will cut the grass tomorrow, and use the holiday as a day of rest. I think the boss finished all our jobs yesterday, so we might be able to put our feet up and just rest. We will take some food to our friends again today, but that might be the only reason I go out!
