OFF TO THE HOT FARM

Well, off to the farm today for some work, not sure I'll do much outside...but there is always something to do inside.  High today will be 102...


Though I would think that a few hours of just sitting here with a glass or two of cold iced tea...


...wouldn't be such a bad thing, am I right?

Of course, it could be worse, did you see about THIS CITY IN IRAN that had a near world record heat index temp of 163 degrees?  I just can't imagine what those people are going through.

Updates later, have a great start to your weekend!

Planning is the most important stage in many things.

Those rocking chairs aided by ice tea would provide the perfect spot to plan.

Stay hydrated and have fun.

Those women looked to be carrying water buckets. What can anyone even do in temps like that? Forget politics- I hope people are getting taken care of.

Stay cool.
And those poor overdressed, over-burdened women. I hope they get some relief soon.

Stay Cool....I just love your Front Porch Photo...that is so neat...it reminds of me of the Old days - I love sitting on the front porch and I miss it.

Have a fantastic day

I love the picture with the rockers. I think you have the right idea - sitting in those rockers with a big pitcher of iced tea - and maybe a tub of cold water for your feet - and there's your weekend!

Melissa said...

Those two rockers are the *perfect place to spend some weekend time! Stay cool and enjoy :-)

Melissa said...

I agree, Gail! Down time is the perfect planning time...and there's no guilt involved ;-)

Last winter I turned my screenporch into a "real" room, but still having windows all the way around. And I'm still living out there :)

Our small heatwave ended yesterday...4 days of 103-106 degrees: awful! Now we're in the 80's, but surrounded by choking smoke...fires on the east side and west side of our part of the Sacramento Valley...the bright side is: I'm not in Iran.

1st Man,

Sit back in your rocker, enjoy some tea, and watch the day go by. Best way to relax with a loved one.

1st Man said...

There you go! I like the way you both think, ha. There was some planning done...and some cold drinks...and perhaps a nap.... ;-) I DID mow though....so some work got done.

1st Man said...

Yes, isn't that sad? I am totally with you, forget politics or how anyone feels what is right or wrong in deals with Governments, let's all have compassion for each other as humans, right?

1st Man said...

Amen! Over burdened is an accurate description. Sending good thoughts their way too.

1st Man said...

Thank you! Yep we have a great porch at the farm . It needs some curb appeal but it looks inviting and it is. Thank you!!!

1st Man said...

LOL! I hear ya!! Broken a/c? Oh no!!! Hang in there!

1st Man said...

Thanks...yep had some iced tea and a couple of diet Dr. Peppers (my weekend weakness, ha). Never thought about cold water, great idea, I'll have to remember that next time.

1st Man said...

Yep, definitely. They were, they really were, ha. Thank YOU!

1st Man said...

That's a cool idea. I bet it's nice to sit and enjoy the view but be cool too, ha.

1st Man said...

80's? That's nice but the fires, no, I hope you are all safe. And yes, not Iran. ;-)

1st Man said...

I did and it was so nice. I dozed off a bit too. Thank you!! Hope you stayed cool and had a good weekend.
