We're having a heat wave, a tropical heat wave!!!

Oh Mylanta! It is hot this week. The news said that we are officially in a heat wave. Really?! I would have never guessed it. It was still at 95 degrees at 6pm tonight and the heat had subsided a bit since noon. It's now bearable.

Yesterday I brought our son to the massage therapist (we believe in alternative medecine when possible, and massage therapy is preventative medecine to us). Then we came home and planned on going to the beach but the fog was so thick that you couldn't see two feet in front of you. We live inland so I either have to call someone at the shore to find out the weather there or drive there and find out for ourselves. That's the wonderful thing about Nova Scotia weather, it changes from one minute to the next and one kilometre to the next.

Dave made a digging pile for our son. He loves it with his trucks and excavators etc... I picked our yellow beans but I was too late. They were past their prime. So I can't process them. So I brought them to work and gave them to some co-workers who were very appreciative. My greenhouse is going nutso! The photo is of my cucumber plants and tomato plants and that tiny, little, green, round thing is a photo of one of 4 plums we have on our tree! Woohoo! In the manure pile we have something growing. I think its a squatter-melon ( a cross between a watermelon and a speghetti squash, something we have had before). At least something is doing well in the "garden".

The piglets are growing fast and they are so cute!!! They have now fattened up a bit, so now they are little round black balls of fur. Cute, cute cute!!!

Well it's time to go. I'm going to wilt my way to bed.

Have a Blessed day!


  1. 95 sounds a lot better then 110! We are going to be just right this week. Highs in the high 70's low humidity. That I can deal with!

  2. Yes, but that was the evening heat. When it had cooled down considerably. It was still hot and muggy during the day.


We love hearing from everyone! Please leave a comment even if it's just to say hello!
