We got some storms today and the air cooled off nicely. You can go outside without breathing in water. I am hoping tomorrow will be as cool as today has been. This is more like Kentucky weather for June.
I checked on my chickens this morning before I left for the doctor and didn't have any dead ones. So the 3 that were in really bad shape last night that I guessed would be dead recovered. I felt really bad last night when one of em was so hot and I thought he was gonna die in my hand, I dunked em in the water barrel to cool em off. I guess it worked cause they were all living and doing fine. I put some of the fresh oat straw that we had gotten in the building for bedding for the birds. They loved picking thru the immature seed heads for treats.
I took my basil that I had put in the drying box out and put them in the dehydrator to finish drying. If there is no rain tomorrow I will finish cutting my herbs and get the straw put in the bed for mulch. And if the heat don't get me I intend to do the asparagus bed as well.
My doctors appointment went pretty well today all things considered. A few months ago I had a complete blood profile done which was mostly good. I ask the doc about my constant joint soreness and pain. And he knew me before I was a patient and tole me I had destroyed my joints doing the job I did for 14 years. Then he dropped the bomb. He said arthritis got me. I have arthritis in my joints and will have to deal with that from now on. He put me on another kind of med for the joint pain and arthritis. He wants me to take it for a month and see if it helps and if not we try something else. Sometimes life just plain sucks.
Till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.
