Hot Weather ~ Chit Chat


We have all been shocked at having several days of 80-90 degree weather in May.  Tuesday morning was much more doable for outside work, but only early in the day.  I managed to get the rest of the flowers planted, and dumped 10 bags of mulch, but we will need more.   

We've been eating easy breakfast meals and salads for the last few days.  The hot weather is the reason.  Breakfast is pumpkin oatmeal bake (with our home grown pumpkin), and  scrambled farm fresh eggs.

I treated the chickens to some home grown sprouts ( I use a sprout jar system, but you can do this in any quart canning jar with a screen top), and boy were they excited about it.  I have since then, restocked their meal worms.

Crazy as it sounds for such hot weather, but I finally finished this scrap yarn lap afghan.

I do a great deal of knitting during the summer months as I like to keep my hands busy of an evening.

God bless.

Jackie, I guess I would be too, if we had the AC on. We don't, as May weather is typically not this hot.
