I has been a HOT summer everywhere!  I don't really remember a summer with this long a stretch of hot, humid and dry.  

We have had to conserve our water.  I haven't been able to water my plants and garden.  It's the garden or the animals and us.  I even had to do laundry in town. 

Thank the Lord for air conditioning.  This heat has really affected my motivation.  It's almost too hot to do anything - inside or out. 

One time a customer said "that Jacky, she doesn't let any grass grow beneath her feet."  However, I have been lacking in motivation.  

The bible says (NIV) "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men"  Colossians 3:23

I read a little story about a boy that was talking with his grandmother before she passed.  She made a statement like:  "I wish I had done that when I was young..."  Determined not to make a statement like that at the end of his life, he wrote out 127 goals for his life.  At the age of 47 he accomplished 103 of these goals.  

If you don't have some goals in your life, you will find that you have little motivation to get up in the morning and little satisfaction as your head hits the pillow at night. 

My "to do this summer" list has very few things crossed off...It will just have to be my "to do this fall" list. 

Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.

I'm feeling exactly the same way. Thankfully, we got some much needed rain that ended our long dry spell.

Hi Jacky! I totally understand! Sounds like you're experiencing what we go through here in the South, every year! Fall is such a long time off for us, though! So we got to: "Make hay while the sun is shining!" It's a shame you have this weather and no eggplants! Love your header! Makes me long for October when our temps. finally get down in the eighties! Be hard to live off-grid in this weather! Love the a/c, too! Sorry about the garden and inconvenience of doing laundry in town! Blessings from Bama!
