The Cowboy usually cuts hay around July 4 but last year he cut about this time of summer as we had an ATV trip planned. So, I guess he decided this was a good time to cut hay this year too–no trips planned at this time but you never know! The wind has howled today, yesterday we had a high temp of 86 and today 81–makes for fast drying hay. Have you seen how hot it is in Arizona??? Wow–so very glad we don’t have to stay there in summer!
I killed the lawnmower–it was mowing fine this morning, after lunch the mower part wouldn’t engage. The Cowboy said I hit a rock–a big rock! But that’s isn’t all that’s wrong with the old mower–we’ve had it a long time, the mower wasn’t expensive and we’ve used it. It’s now in pieces in the garage–we will see if the Cowboy can make it work again! Weed whacking was next on my agenda–UGH! If it doesn’t rain soon it may well be the end of my mowing and weed whacking in places we don’t irrigate such as down by the county road.
The Cowboy had cleaning irrigation ditches on his agenda Tuesday so I made a run to Billings by myself for a haircut and to pick up just a few things at Costco. This time of year we go through a lot of fresh fruit–strawberries, watermelons, oranges–and it just isn’t obtainable at our little grocery store in Big Timber.
And that’s all there is today–thanks for checking in with us!
