Trying to Beat the Heat
The humidity levels have been ridiculously high (93 percent as I write this) in the Bluff Country. Which makes for miserable days and foggy nights. I got up this morning just in time to catch a few photos of the sheep before the fog lifted.
Destiny's handsome son, "Tumbleweed".
He is absolutely gorgeous!
Tumbleweed reminds me very much of "Skittles".
Alice and Destiny relaxing with their triplets.
Chance and Serendipity stay pretty close together now that Charm has gone off to her new home.
What a beautiful morning!
I even held down a branch so the ewes and lambs could have a treat.
Alice wasn't too thrilled with having to share.
By 8:30, the fog was lifting...
Most of the girls went back to the coolness of the barn.
Leaving me out there to swelter.
You'll be the first to know!"
(not even close!)
P.S. I'm adding a new link to my side bar. It will take you to my Examiner.com "Backyard Chickens" column. I don't mean to be pathetic but I get paid by the number of visitors to my Examiner site. If you'd like to see what I'm writing about (and help me out at the same time!) please visit.
I don't make a lot of money as a free-lance writer but every little bit helps. They pay me based on how many people visit my column, how many leave comments and how many subscribe to get email notification when I post a new column. Regardless of whether or not you chose to check out my Examiner column, I'm sure glad that you're here!
