Good Tuesday morning to all y'all fine folks. :)
I have something to show to y'all that I got in the mail. I havent taken a pic of it yet, but it is from Nelishia. :)
I have been having to rearrange my schedule so I am not online in the mornings. I am outside from about six am til 9 or sometimes later trying to get the animals taken care of and do a few things around the yard before it gets too hot. Every morning has been like this. By the time I get in its time for a break for sure.
Lets see, still no fox. Everyone is still locked up. Tim is well! I put him back outside this morning. Some sad news. I lost Elvis to the heat. He was the first silver laced polish I hatched from Kuckoo and Coco. Him and Priscilla were to be next Februarys show prospects. I tried my best to get him hydrated but he just didnt make it. He died in my arms yesterday. He was such a sweet guy. I will miss him terribly. The heat will take more before the summer is over if it doesnt let up some. Over the weekend my weather station said it got up to 101.6 and the heat index was 115. That is hard for any animal to take.
Carrie, I got the weather station at Walmart. It was eighty bucks. We love it!
The goats are being naughty and getting into the garden despite my efforts to tighten the fence around the garden, so they will have to be penned for the gardening season. Ian says I wanted them, I need to control them so we can have a garden, and he is right.
If I havent visited your journal, don't give up on me, I will be around sooner or later. Just takes time sometimes to visit everyone. :)
Since its so hot I reckon I will be doing some cleaning in the house for the next few days. I have plenty to do outside, but I don't want to have a heat stroke trying to do it.
I got supplies to make another grow pen for the up and coming babies in the house.
The goats area has to be fenced off again,I had it fenced and took it down, it was part of Derbys area. Have to get a shade shelter over there and get them set up.
Still trying to find time to finish that fence project over by the side of the porch.
The pigs pen is looking like it is going to wait a while. I will get around to it sooner or later.
Oh, I have so much to tell about my Mexican friends, but I will save that for another entry. Time is short and I need to go visit a few of y'all before I get off here and start doing some cleaning house.
Everyone have a fine day today and try to stay cool! :)
