EVELYN, I HAVE A FRIEND WHO DID DRINK IT FOR A WHILE. I KNOW I WOULD NOT BUT THEN I DON'T LIKE CUCUMBERS EXCEPT AS PICKLES.
NANCY, GLAD YOU HAD NICE WEATHER ---WE HAD NICE WEATHER YESTERDAY SO DH GOT SOME BRANCHES CUT DOWN. THEN IN THE AFTERNOON I MOWED THE LAWN WHILE HE DID THE WEED WHACKING---BUT SILLY ME DID NOT WEAR MY KNEE BRACE AND I AM PAYING FOR THAT TODAY AND LAST NIGHT.
I ACTUALLY COOKED OUR MEAL LAST NIGHT--HAVEN'T DONE THAT IN A WHILE---DH COOKED A BUNCH OF MEAT OUTSIDE BEFORE THIS HEAT WAVE AND WE ATE THAT WITH SIMPLE THINGS THAT DID NOT REQUIRE COOKING, THEN GOT SOME TAKE OUT CHICKEN AND DID THE SAME KIND OF THING ALONG WITH EATING OUT A COUPLE OF TIMES. LOTS OF TOMATOES ARE ABOUT TO TURN RED SOON--ALREADY HAVE SOME IN THE HOUSE SO WE ARE STARTING TO HAVE TOMATOES A LOT WITH OUR MEALS---YUMMY---BUT THINK I WILL BE GIVING A FEW AWAY OVER THE NEXT WEEK.
ANOTHER HOT DAY TODAY SO USING OUR LEFTOVERS FROM OUR MEAL OUT ON FRIDAY, THEN THIS WEEK LOOKS TO BE NOT TO BAD, ESP THE MIDDLE OF THE WEEK.
HAVE A GOOD DAY--OH, AND DON'T FORGET, A NEW CHAT STARTS TOMORROW---THIS IS THE LAST DAY OF JULY!

NANCY, YES, I THINK I WOULD LIKE ONE OF THOSE CARDS, BUT NOT BECAUSE I HAD TO HAVE SURGERY---LOL
NICE DINNER OUT WITH MY MOM---WE BROUGHT HOME A GOOD PORTION OF OUR MEAL---IT WAS DELICIOUS BUT TOO MUCH. GLAD I TOOK MOM TO THE DOCTOR'S---THEY MOVED THEIR LOCATION AND NO WAY DO I WANT MY MOM DRIVING THERE---TOO MUCH TRAFFIC IN THE SUMMER FOR HER TO BE IN.
NOTHING PLANNED FOR TODAY--HOPE EVERYONE HAS A NICE SATURDAY.

Yesterday, walking out of the hospital, the heat wasn't too bad, because its up higher on the hill. When I got home I could fry an egg on the pavement, so I took immediate shelter in the house. Rode my bike around 8 pm, since I hadn't walked enough for the day.

This weekend should be really nice. I hope everyone will have nice weather also.

Keep saying I can do this!

Its been hot in the 90's, but in the evening its been nice to sit out on the patio. It should be cooler, around the lower 80's this weekend, so I'll be out working in the yard.

Got to get hubby something for our 39th anniversary on Sunday. I still may take him to Red Lobster and get a card. So I guess I better do that today after work.

My daughter had surgery yesterday and they found she had endometriosis. She's been in pain for a long time, so I hope the IUD will help her. I guess it may be hormone therapy, she didn't say. She's supposed to be better in a couple of days, but it will be a week to recover totally from the surgery.

I've been exhausted and have been totally wiped out lately. Maybe its more mental, due to my daughter having her baby and my other daughter having her pain. I just got the energy to get on the bike, yesterday. Today I feel I'm coming out of it. It could have been the heat also has made me sluggish, since I don't like working in the heat. Maybe I'm ready for cooler days, so I don't have to pull another weed or cut the lawn. It seems this feeling happens every year.

Keep saying I can do this!

TODAY IS SUPPOSED TO BE LAST DAY OF HEAT WAVE FOR NOW---BUT TEMPS AREN'T REALLY DROPPING VERY MUCH--HIGH 80'S--AND STILL HIGH HUMIDITY SO IT WON'T FEEL VERY GOOD OUTSIDE.
NANCY, SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAD A NICE TIME WITH YOUR SISTER AND FRIEND.
DAIRY QUEEN IS DONATING TO CHILDREN'S MIRACLE NETWORK FOR EVERY BLIZZARD SOLD TODAY---PLANNING ON GOING THERE TODAY.

KAREN, I AM THE ONE THAT NEEDS CAPS. EVEN MAKING THE SMALL PRINT BIGGER DOES NOT ALWAYS GO WELL. I HAVE HAD COUNTLESS LASER TREATMENTS ON MY EYES DUE TO DIABETES. SO THANK YOU

THE LANDLORD DID PAINT THE RAILINGS LAST YEAR BUT THEY WERE DONE FAST AND DIDN'T LAST, MAYBE THIS TIME IT WILL LAST

JUST CAME IN FROM TAKING KIRBY FOR HIS LAST DOZEN TWINKLES FOR THE DAY AND IT HAS STARTED TO RAIN.. WE ARE AT 75f RIGHT NOW WITH 74% HUMIDITY SO FEELS LIKE 85 DEGREES.. MAYBE THE RAIN WILL LOWER THE HUMIDITY, MORE RAIN EXPECTED TOMORROW

GOOD NIGHT ALL

IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU GOT A REALLY GOOD DEAL, NANCY! HOW NICE FOR YOU. I BET YOUR RAILING WILL LOOK SO NICE. IT'S COOLED DOWN SOME FROM THE LAST COUPLE OF DAYS, BUT THEY SAY THE 90'S IS COMING AGAIN.

I READ SOMEWHERE HERE, THAT SOMEONE NEEDS ALL CAPS FOR READING, SO I'LL TRY TO REMEMBER THAT.

I HAVE 3 TOMATOES THAT ARE RIPE AND READY TO EAT AND A LOT MORE COMING TOO! YAY!!

NANCY, THAT WAS A GOOD PICTURE OF THE EARTH. IT WAS SO HOT AND HUMID THAT WHEN WE RAN 2 ERRANDS YESTERDAY, I WAS FEELING VERY DEHYDRATED BY THE 2ND STOP, i WAS GLAD TO GET HOME AND GET SOMETHING TO DRINK.
SO SAD THAT YOU HAVE TO GIVE UP THE DAIRY FARM BUT I UNDERSTAND WHY YOUR SON DOESN'T FEEL THAT HE CAN DO IT BY HIMSELF. SO MANY FARMS, ESP. DIARY ONES, ARE CLOSING THEIR DOORS---TOO EXPENSIVE AND NO ONE WANTS TO TAKE IT OVER--AND THOSE WHO DO WANT TO TAKE IT OVER CANNOT AFFORD IT. I KNOW SEVERAL FARMERS AROUND HERE ARE ONLY PART TIME AS THEY HAVE TO HAVE A FULL TIME JOB TO MAKE ENDS MEET FOR THE FAMILY. OR THE WIFE HAS TO WORK TO PROVIDE HEALTH INSURANCE AND TO HAVE MONEY FOR GROCERIES. THE WORLD BETTER WAKE UP AND REALIZE THAT WE CANNOT SURVIVE WITHOUT THE FARMER.
EVELYN, GLAD THE NEW RAILING IS UP AND YOU LIKE HOW IT LOOKS.
WE ARE FINALLY GETTING RAIN THIS MORNING---WOOHOO---DH WON'T HAVE TO WATER THIS EVENING---WISH IT WAS GOING TO BE OVERCAST AND RAINY ALL DAY LONG.
ONE OF MY HENS AND CHICKS HAVE DECIDED TO BLOOM AGAIN---THE OFFSHOOT IS ABOUT A FOOT LONG AND LOOKS LIKE IT WILL HAVE MORE BLOSSOMS THAN THE ONES I HAD BEFORE---IT JUST LOOKS SO STRANGE STICKING OFF LIKE IT DOES.
HAVE A GOOD WEDNESDAY!

Yes, for sure, Nancy! Oh my, today was so putrid, when my DH was out watering calves, that he thought he was going to puke. I know that sounds so yucky, but it does explain what the weather was like today, before the storms. The rain felt so heavenly and a 50% is predicted for tonight, so that will be so nice. Our lawn is a beautiful green and healthy looking after an adequate amount of rain in this last month. A lot of the time, by the time July rolls around, our lawn is tending toward the brown side. So we're thankful! I feel for all of you who have gotten dry!

Deb, your husband's dairy experience, sounds like he'll love to have those times in his mind forever. At least he won't have to do the hard work! Yes, it is hard work, but so much is so automated nowadays. But my DH is so much more tired and sore. A little different then when he started the dairy in 1983!! We bought his grandparents farm, which was a sheep farm, and turned it into dairy. Our son also, farms full-time with us. Our son says that when my DH quits, so is he. They're looking at a time-frame of August 2017, to get out of the dairy part. We'll keep the land and rent it out, with the farm site. So, with the milk price projected to rise for sometime anyway, we want to hit the dairy market at the time the price for dairy cows are up too. A hard decision, but with us in our mid-upper 50's, it has to be. My poor DH has gotten so full of arthritis, and I am too, with both OA and RA arthritises.

I sure miss having a veggie garden, but am glad for my two tomato plants anyway. It's thundering right now and raining. Dogs are hovering right next to me! They don' t like it at all! Deb, I wish I could give your thirsty garden some of this rain!! Yes, fertilizer will help!

Karen, My DH always talks about the Dairy Farm that he stayed at for a while after he came back from Vietnam. He had relatives that lived in Texas, they would be up before daylight bringing in the cows, washing them and milking them. He said he really enjoyed that, but it was very hard work. He also got a chance on birthing a Cow. He hasn't seen them since he was in his 20's, and we moved away.
Humidity of 67% is pretty high, I could see staying in the house. Hope it passes soon.

Lecates, My plants were doing fantastic when the heat was rising, now they look pathetic and depressing. The temperatures have been going up and down. I'm going to check the corn tonight to see how it looks. I also thinned out the beets yesterday, I may transplant them to the planters, so they can get more water. I'll throw a little fertilizer to give them a little pick-me-up.


Keep saying I can do this!

It's going to be another hot one here too, by the feel of the air outside. Ugh! 90 degrees @ 1:15, with 69% humidity, which makes the air so heavy and with a feeling of rain coming our way. I love this A/C!!

Yes, I remember tomato soup being 4/$1.00 too. I remember when a lot of items were cheap, but I suppose we didn't get payed as much either, but it sure seems to be out of line now! I know that when our milk price was so low, with dairying, the price of milk in the stores were still way up there. The middle man was happy anyway! Ugh! Same with corn flakes. A big box should cost peanuts, with there being a wee amt. of corn inside!

Evelyn, your railings sound so nice. That can fancy up your front so much!

Nancy, it's good your able to give Kirby a little walk anyway.

My DH is so hungry for a meatloaf commercial, so I'll be cooking that up soon. With low carbing, I'll be having a little of the meatloaf anyway.

YEP I REMEMBER TOMATO SOUP AT 4 FOR $1.00,, I JUST BOUGHT SOME ON THE WEEKEND AT 89 CENTS A CAN.. AND THE PRICE OF BREAD HAS MORE THAN 5 TIMES IN PRICE.. EVEN THE CHEAPEST IS OVER 3 BUCKS A LOAF

MY MOM LIVED OUT OF TOWN FROM HERE, WE WOULD GO SEE HER ON THE WEEKEND AND BEFORE WE LEFT WE WOULD BUY 20 LOAVES OF BREAD FOR HER AT 2 FOR 25 CENTS, BACK THEN STORES WOULD NOT BE OPEN SATURDAY AND SUNDAY SO THEY WANTED TO GET RID OF THE BREAD RATHER THAN LOSE IT ALL

ANOTHER HEAT WAVE COMING IN TO SAY HELLO. RIGHT NOW WE HAVE A BREEZE SO OUT I GO WITH KIRBY THEN NOT TOO MUCH PLANNED
HAVE A GREAT DAY ALL, STAY COOL AND DRINK YOUR WATER

DEB, I HOPE TO GET SOME SQUASH BUT THIS HEAT IS REALLY MESSING WITH MY SQUASH PLANTS---THEY LOOK AWFUL. THE ONES WE HAVE HAD HAVE BEEN BOUGHT AT LOCAL PRODUCE STAND. I DID PICK 3 TOMATOES LAST EVENING PLUS SOME MORE GRAPE ONES.
NANCY, REMEMBER WHEN YOU COULD GET TOMATO SOUP 4 CANS FOR A DOLLAR? AND BABY FORMULA IS SO MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE, TOO.
EVELYN, GOOD IDEA TO PICK UP ITEMS FOR CHRISTMAS----I KNOW HOBBY LOBBY HAD STARTED PUTTING OUT THEIR CHRISTMAS STUFF LAST MONTH---ALTHOUGH THAT IS THE ONE THING I DON'T THINK THEY DO A GOOD JOB ON---I ALWAYS SEE LOTS I LIKE IN THEIR OTHER HOLIDAY STUFF BUT NOT THAT MUCH IN THE CHRISTMAS AISLES---EITHER IT IS BECAUSE I ALREADY HAVE ENOUGH OR IT JUST DOESN'T HIT A CHORD WITH ME.
ANOTHER HOT DAY---THINK WE WILL EITHER EAT OUT TODAY OR PICK UP SOME CHICKEN TO BRING HOME. GOOD POOL WORKOUT LAST NIGHT.
HAVE A GOOD TUESDAY AND STAY COOL!

Nancy, Its been many years, I remember it was thick and I remember drinking it straight from the can. I even added it to my Cream of Wheat. I'm sure my mom probably added just one can to thin it out.

Nancy, I remember the Carnation Evaporated Milk, that's what we had. I also remember Borden, which was a very sweet milk. They did keep the Mom's for a whole week.

Are temperature has been cool until yesterday when it made 92F. I'm slowing down in the yard, soon it will be fall. They're already selling Christmas Lights at Ace Hardware.

Lecates, Too bad I can't trade you for your tomatoes and my cucumber. I'm sure you're loaded with squash.

Keep saying I can do this!

KAREN, I WAS WONDERING AS IT DOES LOOK LIKE THEY AHVE SOME GREY HOUND IN THEIR GENES. THOSE KIND OF DOGS REALLY NEED ALL THAT LAND TO RUN AROUND IN.
DEB, GLAD THINGS ARE DOING BETTER FOR THE MOM AND THE BABY----FIRST ONES ARE A BIT HARD TO GET USED TO. MY OLDEST DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO SUCK---YOU HAD TO PRY HIS TONGUE DOWN TO GET A BOTTLE IN---NO WAY TO BREAST FEED HIM---HE FINALLY CAUGHT ON AT 7 DAYS OLD---AND HE WAS A PROJECTILE VOMITER---HE COULD SHOOT IT OUT SEVERAL FEET---YOU NEVER BURPED HIM ON YOUR SHOULDER.
WOW, WISH WE WERE GETTING BEANS AND CUCUMBERS. JUST TOMATOES RIGHT NOW. DH WENT OUT AND WATERED EVERYTHING LAST NIGHT AT 7:30 SO THEY WOULD MAKE IT THRU TODAY---TEMP PREDICTED 99 WITH HEAT INDEX OF 115---SO I WILL BE REMAINING INSIDE TODAY.
STAY COOL!

Hi Everyone, I haven't gotten any mail from this site for a while. I'm not sure where to begin, but I noticed a few of you are getting tomatoes. All mine are still green, but I have been getting lots of cucumber and squash. My lettuce is already fizzled out, because of the heat. Since I've been running back and forth with visiting my daughter and the new baby, the garden has been put on the back burner. I also didn't go to the Rodeo or fishing. I've been worried about the baby and mom making it through the first week. The mom seems to be getting the hang of it but its been rough on her, since the first day home, the baby wasn't eating or pooping. Now everything is OK. She finally had to supplement the milk with Similac, besides breast feeding.
This all brings back memories of my first baby.

I need to fertilize my garden sometime this week, I'm sure it needs it.

Nancy, Love the beautiful pictures!

Karen, The dogs look really happy being together.

Keep saying I can do this!

Nancy, you always post the most happiest of pictures and quotes, and they're always so welcome. Our temps. are cooler here today. In the lower 80's and so pleasant out. I need to get out and walk. Will do that soon. We sure had the storms last night and good, needed rain. I had just watered our tomato plants by hand too, but the more sprinkles of rain was so welcome, I'm sure. We still have a few orange tomatoes coming and they're ripening up every day. I'm sure they loved that hot heat and humidity we had last week! They were about the only ones! Ha!

Lecates, our dogs love our dairy farm. They run like greyhounds and play and play! Ruger, the big white one, will make hugs leaps as he runs! He loves to hop up on top of the large round bales of hay and our other dog, Hope, with Hips Dysplasia in her hips, can't get up that high, so barks around and around at Ruger! It's so cute to watch them play! They don't help with the cattle though, and that's ok. They tend to get in the way, so they stay in the house, when the guys are working them.

I hope everybody has a lovely Sunday. emoticon emoticon

WE DID GET ANOTHER TOMATO TODAY AND ONE MORE WILL COME OFF TOMORROW----THE OTHER PLANTS ARE STARTING TO CHANGE SO IT WON'T BE LONG BEFORE WE HAVE A LOT MORE TO EAT---RIGHT NOW THEY ARE COMING OFF AT JUST ABOUT THE RIGHT PACE, ALTHOUGH WE WOULD EAT MORE IF THEY WERE AVAILABLE.
NICE TO HAVE A NEW WINDOW IN YOUR HOUSE----BET THE DOGS LOVE BEING ABLE TO ROAM ON THE DAIRY FARM.

I can imagine how good it must feel to get your blinds back up, Nancy! I'm happy right along with you today! I love house projects done, and with being on a dairy farm, it seems that alot of the time, the house is the last to get attention. emoticon But all good comes to those that wait!

Storms just went through and we just got a sprinkle of rain though. More is forecasted. 80% chance today. 79% humidity right now and there's a high of 87, so that's cooler than the last week or so. It was putrid, as you speak of! For how hot it's been, I love your Winter scene! Awww, that looks so good for a couple of minutes! Ha! I always thought that it would be so awesome if we could bottle this heat up and save up on furnace fuel in the Winter!!!!
Oh, and my husband and son are finishing up the new kitchen window that they've put in, so I must not complain!!

KIrby, Kirby, Kirby, I love him!!! Here's our dogs......Hope is on the left and Ruger on the right. They love looking out the window!! We first had Hope here and then when our daughter got divorced and there was nowhere for Ruger to go, we agreed that we could take him. Afterall, we already had one big dog in the house! They're the bests of Buds and would be so lost without the other! And, with being on our dairy farm, they each get lots of washings!!!! They don't mind anymore, they just stand there!

MY SNACK THIS AFTERNOON WAS 7 CHERRY TOMATOES AND 1/2 A CUCUMBER. TOMATOES FRESH FROM MY PLANTS BUT CUCUMBER FROM GROCERY STORE. IT IS QUITE WINDY TODAY SO WALKING WITH THE BREEZE COOLS THINGS OFF. TEMPERATURE IS NOT TOO BAD AND NO HUMIDITY. HOWEVER HEAT RETURNS TOMORROW, THEN RAIN ON FRIDAY AND HEAT AGAIN FOR THE WEEKEND

TAKE CARE ALL. I THINK I WILL CALL JOJO TOMORROW MORNING TO SEE HOW SHE IS DOING

LOCATION,, QUEBEC, CANADA
