Energy Boost

For the whole summer I was wondering what was wrong with me. I felt LAZY! I didn't want to weed the garden. I didn't want to feed the chickens. I didn't really want to feed me and Hubby. The house is a mess. The yard is a mess. And, the porch is a mess. What was wrong with me!!!!! I had no energy!

Until.......it got cooler. Wow! What a difference! My whole attitude changed overnight! I started cleaning and cleaning and cleaning. I started noticing things that needed done. What a relief to realize the mess around the house wasn't my fault! (good excuse anyway) We finally had a nice,cool(er) weekend around here. I actually WANTED to go outside and breath. It was wonderful. The problem was, the garden is such a loss, it was a waste of time doing anything with it. So I decided to do as many other things that I could as long as the weather was nice. It actually lasted all weekend.

But now, it is Monday, and it's hot again.Aaaauuuugggghhhh!!!!

So until next time,

Small Farm Girl, lazy once again.

Yep, feeling the same way, that's why I try to get out early when it's cool and again in the evening when it cools off. Otherwise we're inside working on inside projects. Pretty soon we'll be canning then it will be hot and muggy inside too*sigh* I just have to keep reminding myself how cold it was last winter and how we HAD to be out in it hauling water and feeding for the animals, plus hauling wood to keep the wood stove going, that usually perks up my attitude*wink*, somewhat anyway. :o)

Yeah, its been sweltering around here but this past weekend was so nice and cool! Its nice to walk outside and not have to "swim" through the humidity and heat! Yay for cold fronts! Its still cool here today...but the heat is coming back tomorrow :-( Let me know if you have any trouble finding that xylitol sweetener, I really like that one company I linked to on my blog. They have the best prices for it.

Isn't ironic how we dream of and wish for summer when we're in the middle of winter? But yet we forget about summer's humidity, heat, bugs and all the sweaty outside work. lol!

Then when summer arrives we are begging for cooler weather.

We don't have A/C, but this reminds me of how folks shiver and say how freezing cold they are when the temps get down to 50 degrees in the winter. Yet in the summer those same people crank their A/C all the way down to that same 50 degrees. Weird, huh?

I've eaten cereal for dinner more nights than I can count lately. I am sooo ready for some cooler weather. What an awful summer this has been.
