Down Time

It appears the scant week of triple digits proved too much for my WiFi repeater several times this week. And yet life goes on. In fact, pushing cyber chores to evening hours makes time for a quick flat football game while the sprinklers run – work will always be there.

The daily chores in the lots, yards, working the gardens and tending the livestock keep us all busy. The heat drains our energies faster than usual so we find indoor chores earlier than we typically would. In fact, days into the heat wave I noticed by late morning even GoodGirl practicing new ways of holding the rugs down on the concrete.

It’s a dirty job but somebody’s gotta do it.

Have a happy weekend!

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 (NIV)

  2. God bless you through this time of extreme heat. We are having too much rain. Wish we could ship some of the water elsewhere for relief.


  3. GoodGirl knows what to do when it’s hot!


  4. I love your phrase “hold the rugs down on the concrete”.

    I’m wondering how many posts I’ve missed. I read everything in my reader yesterday. Today I found a bunch posted yesterday that I didn’t see. This is one of them. I wonder if I need to backtrack every day!!


Your thoughts matter to me. Of course I'd like to hear from you!
