The longest couple of days in the year are upon us. I have to say that I feel positively pagan about the daylight. It’s such a blessing to have so many hours of it that I can’t get enough.
It’s still been a crazy week trying to get some end of year things tied up, and then the hot and humid weather hit us yesterday. I know that the whole east coast of the U.S. is getting hit with it, and most are getting it worse than we are, but after weeks of the 60 degree daytime temps, it really struck us like a freight train. John was down in the neighboring field making hay while I was at work trying to get caught up. We even relented and put our small air conditioner in the bedroom window yesterday. It was a definite relief to get a good night’s sleep last night.
This afternoon I moved our Pippi the goat over into the other side of the paddock. She has not been eating as much as usual and keeps herself to herself, and I did not want the other goats to pick on her and keep her from her food. So I got her over with Bonbel and the ewes this afternoon and she still is not eating much. She is technically due on the 25th, but you never know! It could be tonight.
And so it goes. At least we are going to get a little bit of a break from the heat tomorrow.
