Well Belle jumped the fence yesterday while Brook and I were at TaeKwonDo. This is the 3rd time this weekend. This morning while preparing to go get her I had a shock, she was in the field with the other horses! We really did not expect that. I went inside and finished working on some of my stuff(reading journals and picking up). Pat got up and I could tell he was not happy! He was dreading going to get Belle in the heat. He thought he had overslept and wanted to know why I did not get him up! I laughed and told him what I had seen. He was so relieved! Right now she is still out there with the other 2. I finished getting breakfast done and then I got my stuff ready to work on fence. Went out with my little bucket with had a hammer, wire, nails, wire cutters, pliers, electric fence do dads, and a pistol. I proceeded to put up a gate made from electric fence wire. Next I went down the fence line checking for any breaks and clearing off the vines from the electric wire that was topping the barbed wire fence. I know some of you are saying well where was Pat when I was out in the heat doing all that? Well he was under the brush hog sharpening the blades. I am the one that usually does the fence repairs around here. I have no idea why. I like doing it and I guess I just sort of took over the job. I can pound in metal poles or dig holes with post hole digger for the wooden ones. I can string barbed wire and electric. We do not have a fence stretcher so I have learned how to tighten the wire without one. Gotta watch that barbed stuff, if you tighten it too much you may find yourself wrapped up in it. It can snap and spring back at you and wrap around you. It is dangerous stuff.
Pretty hot out there right now. Temperature is 95, heat index is 110, humidity is 59%. My advice is to stay inside! I checked the pool water just a bit ago and it is as warm as bath water! My water at the sink is lukewarm. It has to travel a long way thru hot ground before it gets to my tap. Brook does not want to get in the pool because it is so hot. We did not go to TaeKwonDo tonight because of the heat. My van has no A/C. Hope it breaks soon!
Our birds were so cute the other day. We let them out all the time and they fly around the house. The cats pay no mind to them doing that. Sometimes they run out of the room when the birds start flying. Anyway, for some reason their door shut on their cage whilethey were out. It was about the time that I usually put them up and Chip was down at the door messing with it. Peaches joined him, although she did not help. She just sat there and hollared. We could tell that Chip was trying to get in the cage! He kept working the door until finally he opened it and they both went inside.
That's it for now. Gonna drink my water and think about getting in the pool. Might do some weeding after the sun strts setting.
