Pray for Montana

It’s hot and smokey today with no rain in sight for the foreseeable future.  Pray for the states with fires raging.

When you know you’re supposed to be doing something….

OK, I admit it.  I’m kinda flaking out today.  I have a bad habit of working 35, 40 days straight, then crashing like the Hindenburg. I get all excited about the latest project, and do nothing but that until it’s done – or, like now, nearly done.  So tomorrow I go back at it.  Maybe it’s the hot weather.  Maybe the rest will do me some good.  Maybe I need to get off my butt and do something so I don’t guilt for the rest of the day! Or maybe – not.


A hot summer day.

It’s hot and dry here in NW Montana! We haven’t had rain in weeks and the temps have been in the 90’s.  My sheep are NOT happy. As much as I like not having to bundle up like the Sta-Puff Man, the heat and I don’t get along.

Last night we had a hot dry wind with smoke from the Wild Fires in the area.  I was very happy to have clear air when I took the sheep to the lower pasture this morning!!
