Cool Thoughts

My friend, Tina, had a great idea to post a picture of something cool. They are having record heat in the Pacific NW right now. We, too, are having warm temperatures with increased humidity due to it still being "Monsoon Season". The past few days have seen tremendous storms moving through. My sheep are getting used to the Drill of having me round them up to put in areas where they have proper cover if they want. Our pasture has no mature trees and if Skittles doesn't stop bashing the barriers to the trees we are trying to grow in the pasture, we still won't have any shade.
So, I'm leaving you with the thoughts of chilled mallards standing in cold water with snow about.

And I keep in mind that the Earth will turn and...eventually...those of us who love cool weather will become more active again. I wish, I wish, I wish....

It really feels like fall here, with temps in the upper 70s. I decided to wean off lambies, especially the little ramlings, who have become too 'ramly' acting in this cooler weather. I know we will get a shock when things heat up again, because it just SEEMS like fall...

Well, the wishing worked here, so hopefully it will work for you, too. :-)

I dont know, sitting here in my airconditioned office, that gives me the chills lol
No rain here, but it has cooled off a bit, went from the low triple digits to the mid to low ninety's :)

It's working our weather here in Reno is so cool I have a sweater on! Not for long tho we'll be in the mid 90's again at the fair this weekend. Maybe another picture would help it go away.

What do you and Tina do?! I popped over to Mim's this morning on my way to work - I was wishing I had brought a sweater! My poor struggling tomatoes need heat~

We could definitely use some cool thoughts over here, though actually it's tolerable for our neck of the woods.
