This is the first weekend in 5 weeks that I can stay at home and do absolutely nothing. 5 weekends away from home is very tiring and leaves a lot to be desired concerning my yard.
So what did I do today? I slept. Not that I couldn't have worked outside today, if it weren't for the heat. Hot and muggy today...so hot that when I threw the ball for my dog, she looked at me with that "if you want the damn thing go get it yourself" look. So needless to say we spent the day in the air conditioning. While watching the news, I saw a report on the farmers and how they are coping with the heat. A local chicken farmer was quoted as saying, "We are feeding the chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying hard-boiled eggs." The dairy farmers were also concerned the milk production would cause a shortage. One farmer was quoted as saying, "We are feeding crushed ice to the cows so they won't give evaporated milk."
In other news, the local newspaper have sources that confirmed reports of a celebrity sighting. It's so hot that Angelina Jolie is considering adopting another child from here. **drum rim shot**
But seriously, its nice having downtime to let my batteries recharge. I feel refreshed this evening and have plans of doing nothing again tomorrow.
