A sunny 68° with a nice NW breeze and no bugs. It just doesn’t get much better than this.

From the roaster to the freezer. My outdoor thermometer read 104.7 in the shade day before yesterday. Right now it’s 52°. A 50 degree drop. I’ll take it!

99.6°. This does not bode well for the rest of the summer, since this is just the beginning of June.

I do not handle the heat very well, to say the least. Christian picked up a couple of window air conditioners (our central air is 15 yrs. old and just can’t keep up with the heat anymore). We put one in my bedroom, and I’ve been escaping there after I do the exercise bike. We tried putting the other one in one of my studio windows, but my ferret-proofing halted that midway. I’m going to have to use the Sawzall to cut some boards to fit that in. I just think I might wait until my nephews come up and let them do that. It’s too hot to do anything right now.

And in the meantime, the weeds are overtaking my flower garden. They don’t care if it’s hot, sigh.

Suka got out of the dog pen again and killed another chicken, a hen of course. He couldn’t go after the roosters! I’ve got way more of them than I do hens. I ordered some invisible fencing from Amazon and we’re going to just put it along the fence to keep him from digging under it and getting out. If he wouldn’t kill the chickens I would just let him run, since he stays up around the house and barn. Big stinker!
