Today's Take - 8/4/12

Oh the heat! If only we had plants that would thrive in it, instead of only having critters who suffer on account of it. :( Today's high was 94, which is misery to a PNW girl like me.

We helped the pup keep cool by giving him ice cubes, which he loves to crunch, as well as a container of homemade chicken stock, straight out of the freezer. Rexy licked that thing down to a nub, grateful for the relief.

The goats did a lot of lounging in the shade to beat the heat, while the chickens walked around with their wings out, airing their armpits (wingpits?) in an attempt to shed a little heat. We all made it, but we're all a little worse for the wear. ;P

*Goats milk - 1/2 gallon
*Eggs - 2 :(
*Raspberries (from Lisa's garden)- 14 ounces
