I am pleased to announce that I will be holding my first ever give-away coming soon. I'm lining up some great prizes for the winners too. I just have to figure out how to actually RUN a blog contest. Having never done it before, I keep thinking there may be something that I am missing or may need to know. LOL Nahhh, I'm just trying to figure out how I want to do one. Have you ever held a give-away and if so is there any advise that you can give me? What kind of contests do you guys like to participate in? Are some more fun than others? Are there some give-away's that you shy away from? Any input you would like to give? Let me know in the comments below.
I found my glasses! OK I know that I haven't said a single word to anyone about loosing them in the first place. Mainly because I really didn't want anyone to know that I had once again lost them. That, and the fact that I'm not totally blind without them, unless that is, I find that I have to read something on the side of a box or bottle. That print is so dang tiny anyway that even folks with normal eyesight would have to squint to see it. I've looked for them off and on over the past six weeks or so and came to the conclusion that somehow I had lost them in the truck. It has an ability to "eat" things from time to time and then regurgitate them at a later date.
While I was watering the lower section of the garden yesterday I decided to dump out the dog's water trough and give it a good rinse. While I had it on it's side, I looked down and spotted something shiny beneath the tall grass growing there. I reached down to see what it was... Yep, My Glasses! I don't know HOW they got there, I'm just going to assume that I had laid them down on the concrete steps that are right there, and they got shuffled off. My apologies to the truck for the accusation.I might be able to sit down and read a book now.
I can't afford to tick off the truck, its our only means of transportation. Besides, it's not been feeling well the past few days. It seems that the battery is going bad. It's not holding a charge. Which shouldn't be happening as it is still under warranty. That being said, I can't find the receipt. I'll try to talk WallyWorld into replacing it but I'm not holding my breath. Good thoughts my way would be appreciated.
Man oh man it's hot. I'm amazed at how hot most of the country has been. It's not going to bode well for many homesteaders and farmers. The heat is causing problems all across the nation. Crops were iffy before because of all the spring rain, and now the heat is decimating what is left of many crops. Folks are having to butcher their livestock because they can't find and/or afford the hay for them. Please check on your neighbors who may be affected by this horrible heat and keep folks in your prayers.
Around here with the a/c not working, I've been taking cold showers two and three times a day just to cool off for a little bit. Having well water is great for this because we are talking COLD water. Cold enough that the faucets condensate when you run it a couple of minutes. And with that being said, I've decided that even though we can't afford to do it, I am ordering the fan blade for the air conditioner. I'll just have to do without something else. I can't take the heat anymore. It's been 100+ here for days and days with no relief in sight and the fan is just blowing around hot air. I know it's going to jack up the electric bill too, but that's just the price I'm going to have to pay. Being this miserable on a day to day basis is growing really old really fast. It also makes for grumpy people. I don't like grumpy people, especially when its me. Besides, I figure by the time it gets here July will be just about over and then there's probably another 6 or 8 weeks left until we can turn it off again.
Ok I'm done with my fussing for the day. Ya'll stay cool and stay hydrated!
