It's Hot. It's Dry. It's Summer Time.....

In Mississippi.  I am not sure when we had rain the last time.  It's been a while.  We are watering our garden and it is still turning yellow.  It's so hot here right now that we can't hold out to do much work outside. 

So far our animals have survived.  They're getting plenty of water and most of them are in a shady area.  We did have two baby chicks get away from the momma hen and both of them died.  :(  We have five that survived!  It's wonderful to have a hen go broody and hatch the babies so she can take care of them.  It's a lot easier than having them hatched in an incubator and then we have to be momma to the babies. 

I am planning to put more tomato plants in the garden.  If we don't get rain this week I will go ahead and set them out and pray for the best.  I also want to plant more yellow squash and cucumbers.  I know the heat won't be kind to them.  I will have to keep them watered and again pray for the best.

William has taken down the wall that was between the living room and dining room.  Now we have one large room.  We are going to move the living area into what was the dining room and put the table between the living area and the t.v. watching area.  We will have a living area, a dining area and a den but they will all be in one large room.  When we have company we can get away from the television and maybe people won't sit and watch t.v. instead of visiting. 

We went to visit with William's Uncle John and Aunt Marilyn last Saturday.  They gave us a bushel of peas and a bag of green beans from their garden.  I put five quart bags of peas and three quart bags of green beans in the freezer.  We appreciate the peas and the green beans since we don't have peas in our garden.  We really don't have room to grow enough peas to put any in the freezer.

Tomorrow is the birthday of our nation.  Let's all take a moment to be thankful for the freedoms that we have and the lives we are allowed to live.  Happy Birthday America.  I thank God that I'm a citizen of the United States of America everyday!  Happy Independence Day everyone.
