Diving Not Permitted

Seems a bit early to me, but I do believe summer has arrived.  Watering is once again on the chore schedule, and yesterday Bessie Anne went wading twice in her pool.  I'm the assigned lifeguard on duty.  If I get the chance, I'll give her a puppy-cut hairdo to help her make it through the heat, also to keep her from bringing half the pool into the house to drip dry from her long hair.

I need to get an additional water dish/bottle for the pullets.  Last evening I found they'd drunk the full gallon dry during the day.  I filled it for them and the poor little parched buggers clustered around to drink before trooping in for the night.

Spent most of yesterday crossing off chores to get ready for next week, alternating with sitting long enough for sweat to dry.  That seems to be the summertime pattern.  I'm getting down to the girls earlier and earlier, for which we're all grateful, not that it's cool then, but definitely not as hot.  (Annual summertime whine.)

As we sit down here in Coastal Southern California in the well-named June Gloom, it is so hard to imagine you up there sweltering. Hope you get some relief!
