Short Day Yesterday

I got up early yesterday and rode my bicycle for a few miles and it felt so good. It's been so hot here that I just couldn't think of riding it. That was a pretty good start to my day.

I live on a gravel road, which is private. The recent storem we had cut some ruts in it and a lot of gravel was washed to the sides of the road. I created a flyer and put one in each of my neighbors' mailbox trying to recruit them for a day of repair. Nobody has done this before, but if we don't fix the road ourselves, it ain't gonna happen. Hopefully, I'll get a response. If not, I'll start repairing it by myself and hope they all feel bad when they see me out there with my pick and shovel! I'll let you know what happens with this in a couple of weeks.

Since I was all sweaty by the time I got home, I went ahead and sanitized the chicken waterers and geese pools. They appreciated it very much, I think.

Cinnamon is still with me but her comb is quite pale. I've searched on line and think I've figured out what's wrong with her. Unfortunately, I need antibiotics and can't get them w/o taking her to a specialty vet - something I cannot afford. I will do my best to make her well and strong again. She seems to have more energy now at least.

Here is a picture of her from a couple of years ago. Guess I lost track of time b/c I thought she was just a year old. She's about 2 1/2 now.

I had to work the evening shift at Lowes and that makes me leave shortly after lunch and not getting home till after 10 p.m. I didn't want to get involved in any big project so just did some tidying up in the house after I took my shower.

On the sewing front, I've made a little something for my mom's birthday and will have them in the mail today. I don't want to show a pic yet in case she reads this.

I've put away my All Dressed Up quilt squares so I can start on Christmas presents. As slow as I go, I need to get busy NOW.

It's another scorcher here today and I hate it. August is my least favorite month and I'm already looking forward to September. Till then, I will stay inside as much as I can.

I hope you are having a good day. I've got to get all my critters taken care of before heading to Lowes.
