Lazy Days of Summer

I remember doing this as a kid as well: cooling off in the heat. I was lucky enough to have my granddaughter for the afternoon a couple of weeks ago. She loves water and the old lick container makes a handy pool. Today she and her parents were over and she hopped in her car for a little bit of motoring while we talked. I just got the news that I'm going to be a grandma again in February and am very excited. The first shipment of lambs went off to their new home in Napanee Tuesday and in exchange I received a sheep handling system. That has been on my wish list for quite a while and will make worming and sorting a lot easier. All the hay is in the barn and the boys will be shorn soon before going to auction. My broilers are off to the butchers tomorrow and we will have pasture raised chickens in the freezer and for sale as of Saturday. Enjoy the pics.
