In the RED

Frosty: Is there a thermometer around here?
Karen: Over there in the wall.
Frosty: I was afraid of that. The thermometer is turning reddish. I hate red thermometers.
Karen: Why is that?
Frosty: Because when the thermometer gets red, the temperature goes up, and when the temperature goes up, I start to melt, and when I melt, I get all wishy-washy.

And the thermometer was red again today and although I didn't melt, I was all wishy-washy. After the chores I went down into the large garden, hoed around the peppers and some tomatoes, planted more cucumbers and got weed block down around most of the broccoli. Then I had to stop, it was 11 am and 92 degrees. So the thermometer was red, my face was red and even some of my shoulders were red.

I came up and took a shower and sat down to finish the socks... Red socks for my daughters friend. When they were done, I washed them and took them outside to dry. I look up and there is my rose bush blooming.
The high temps were good for one thing...drying laundry. I was able to get everything done. I got them in just in time because the storms came fast. After the thunderstorm I took the puppy out to check on everything. Isn't he cute? I have to keep reminding myself that he is just a cute puppy. Why, you ask. Because after getting bored when the chicks wouldn't play with him, he decided to leave. And by leave I mean take off. I was back in the red because when I called him he stopped, looked at me and when I called him second time he went running away. I got the leash and went after him. He either didn't remember how to walk on a leash or decided he didn't want to because it was a fight every inch of the way back home.... He starts obedience classes next week. It better be a quick week because he needs to start listening before he grows into those paws.

Guess you are going through your "red" period.

I would have been seeing red had he run off on me! Still...he is a cutie, and I couldn't stay mad at him for long.

The socks look great!
