I’m right there with both y’all! I dragged out my solar oven so I don’t heat the house when I’m cooking though. I’m dreading the power bill that I knows going to be outrageous.

That’s the one I have. I’ve used it for the last 6 years and it’s worth every penny. When I bought mine I got the deluxe package with all the pans and racks. Here in Texas, I use it year round. I Can’t say enough good things about solar ovens, they make amazingly tender meats and it’s so easy. 😁

I lasted until noon outside and came in for a strawberry fruit popsicle. Lol feel like a kid. Will probably run out to town for some alfalfa and then take a shower and call it for outside time today. That is until feeding time. I really don't wanna run to town but it's going to rain rest of the week it looks like and clear today.

That's good to know!!! I like to hear reports other than what we read on line. Well I know we are on line but we are more like distant family 😆

Another day of 105 to 115 on the heat index. This is getting crazy. It seems they called the thunderstorm chance off for today though so there goes my day of relaxing inside the house and crocheting.

It's so strange reading about y'all's weather and that it is hotter for y'all than it is here.
It's only 93 deg/heat indexed to 105-ish. I'm trying to get the barn mess cleaned up but intermittent thunder and lightning
has me scared to get on the tractor. Hate to say it but I need some rain.
Just that sentence probably means a 4 day deluge with a hurricane or something.

You’re not alone- we are always happy to get rain. It seems like this year- it’s always on the weekends tho 🤣
Last Sunday we had a very good rain and now our reservoirs are full, which is great news!
I’m finally taking the kids on a camping trip (really a wood cutting trip w/camping and fishing thrown in the mix 😅) and Sunday is showing another chance of a storm coming in… I’m just hoping it’s later in the day so we can get everything packed up before it starts!

:D There is a thunderstorm raging as I type this post. Winds are pretty gusty at times and there will be limbs and stuff to pick up later. The thunder is upsetting the house cat and she went to sit in the bathtub to hide behind the shower curtain, the goats stopped chasing leaves and are bunked down because those melting drops are falling from the sky and the dogs could care less and happily ran around getting wet during their after meal potty trip. It's raining finally and it's a wonderful and welcome sight. I can feel the temperatures dropping and that is a relief, been kind of tough this whole week due to the excessive heat.

Though I now delight in our cool weather, it seems I may never get my hay off. Another 10 days of wet in the forecast. My hay should have been cut 3 or 4 weeks ago. When it finally gets cut, probably in October the way things are going, I will have more bales than I can handle and the goats won't eat any of it.

One thing I don't miss about hay baling is the weather not working with you. Hope you don't have to eat to many shredder wheats in the fall.
