I don’t know about where you live, but it’s HOT, with all capital letters, here in Swoope, Virginia. The farmers are hot, the animals are hot and the days are plain old miserable. I have to admit that I’m envious of city folks with air conditioning these days. None of our homes here on the farm have A/C because usually…we don’t need it.
The animals don’t do so well in this heat either. They wilt just like plants. We had to take extra precautions and move them all against tree lines and under shade-mobiles for the scorching days. This is the beauty of portable infrastructure. We can move to higher ground in floods, a south facing hill in winter and to the shade in the heat. 🙂
What do you do to keep cool?
I always look for the watermelon, chilled, of course. Got my first one off the vine on Wednesday and I was going to take a picture of it to show you, but somehow it’s gone. I cannot imagine how that happened! gasp! 😮
Ice cream, cold melons and berries, ice tea and good old cold refreshing ice water are all summer favorites of mine.
What is your favorite summer treat?
