I spent yesterday weeding my herb garden. The heat index is high, and at 8:30am today, the heat index is at 86°F.
The forecast is predicting the heat index will reach about 96° today about 1:00pm. That is too hot (and risky) to be outside at that time. First the garden is flooded, and now it's getting scorched.
Mattie, another one of our indoor cats, is going to the vet today. She's developed a growth on her head, and it needs looked at. She's about 14 years old and still has a lot of spunk.
Last night, my son helped me move the metal roofing still hanging from the barn, so my 16 year-old could get the go-kart out. She had that thing flying all over the property, and with different kids in it for a ride. She'd stop at the door and honk, asking if anyone else wanted to take a ride (smiling ear to ear). I said, "sure, your brother will ride, won'tcha?" He did. He had not been in the go-kart at all since we've had it.
My son found out that his sister does not hold back when she's driving - he he he! So later, we look out and see him driving and giving her the ride of her life. I have to say, it was fun watching them have so much fun. I had just had a shower, or I would have gone for a spin.
I have to say, it feels weird not having anything to can, dehydrate or freeze. This may be the worst garden year ever for us.
