Hot Hot Heat

Standard

Well, summer has arrived on the farm. There are baby chicks, turkeys, guinea fowl, a loving little duck couple, a visiting dog, and the  usual gaggle of animals. Wildflowers abound, as do weeds in our vegetable garden, summoning bees, birds, and contented gazes across the field. Inside the yurt things are ever-changing as well. The wee one is crawling everywhere now so the layout has changed to accommodate small and inquiring hands.

We leave the door open most of the day so we can enjoy the view and hopefully catch a breeze. Along with the breeze, however, come the unwanted buzz of house flies. In the sweltering heat we’ve been getting we have noticed a serious decline in energy and motivation to do anything other than sleep, read, or eat popsicles. Thus, the afternoon naps continue.

The thermometer read 104 in the sun the other afternoon so we figured it was time for free air-conditioning and headed to the grocery store. Other days we just splash around in puddles.

Thankfully, many days there have been bold storms to break the humidity for a few hours.
