The Early Bird
The days become segmented. Heavy work has to be done early if it's to be done at all. Yesterday I got a lot more weeding done in the lavender bed before barn chores. Today, that will have to wait as mowing the side yard has moved to the top of the list; the star thistle is literally leaping from the ground. After the goats are done, there is a cool-down period that could last a couple of hours. The heat is enervating and I have no ambition, let alone capability, to do anything. Even hanging laundry has to be in the morning as the sun could beat you to your knees later on. Early evening when the shadows are long is the time for the light stuff, housework, etc.
The sun is just cresting the hills and I've got to get moving. It's going to be a hot day.
