The air is hazy with muggy, sticky, humid heat. The cows on both sides of the creek go still and quiet and hang out around their water, stamping their feet and swishing flies with their long tails. They made occasional half hearted forays into the field but their heart was not in it.
The pigs lying in wallows of mud like ancient child nightmare mud monsters.
And like a mad dog or possibly an Englishman I merrily work on.
This is the last day of the high humid heat. The weather forecasters are all about warnings to stay inside but yesterday was not that bad in fact I think it is good for the skin to have a good sweat. We will manage another day of it with no problems. The cows and calves and pigs were fine under their trees with plenty of extra water.
As long as the animals are ok I am happy to plod on with the fencing and thistling. John laid on the couch with his air conditioner on, clutching his IPad and gasping about the hot weather as though it was a personal affront, he is such a comedian, but I much prefer the heat to the cold of deep winter so you will not hear a complaint from me.
I hope you have a lovely day.
We will have a hot one. I am off out!
