Day 234, July 10: What happens when you have a 4-H cake decorating meeting in an un-air conditioned school cafeteria on a really hot day? Frosting that melts and cupcakes that look like this. They were really cute for a few minutes.
Day 235: The lack of rain in making our lawn very brown.
Day 236: Some of our barn cats hanging out in the barn
Day 237: Greg and Janelle were both leaving on mission trips and had 13 hour drives, so I baked a bunch of cookies and muffins for them to take along on the ride.
Day 238: Yes, that is rain! We didn’t get very much, but it kept the corn happy for a few more days.
Day 239: Roland and I went to Kohler-Andrae State Park in Sheboygan. I’ve lived in Wisconsin for 22 years and have never been here before. It was a fun, relaxing day on the beach.
Day 240: Yes, it’s that hot again.
Day 241, July 17, 8 months done: In case anybody thinks I’m exaggerating when I say Kaiser is as big as a small cow, here’s proof. He is a very big done.
Day 242: This is what Kaiser does on all our hot days–sleep on the cool, damp parlor floor.
Day 243: These cats love to keep me company while I’m milking. I like to think it’s because they like me, but it’s probably because they know that they will soon get some fresh milk.
