I stayed indoors today but Brad took Magen in to see the vet and get her shots. She was such a good girl, much calmer than her sister Hava. He picked up our grocery order on his way home. Tomorrow he takes Hava back to see if her muzzle can come off or has to stay on. He’ll bring the boys out to our house afterward. I think they may stop for BBQ brisket on the way home.
I’ve reached a point in my knitted throw that I’ve decided to start the decreases and keep it as a lap throw instead of carrying on and making a shawl. I’ll plan on a wide lace border out of the hand-spun aqua yarn and save the rest of this yarn for another project. I don’t believe I have enough of it to use for the border and I have plenty of the aqua.
We had a call from Douglas Distributing earlier and they will be out next Tuesday morning to install the propane tank and connect it to the Generac. Then Webb Electric will be back out to fire it up and make sure it works properly and set it to come on automatically in the event of a power outage. There is no let up in the triple digit weather for the foreseeable future and we are staying indoors as much as possible.
The boil order from the co-op has expired so I can do laundry tomorrow but we will continue to conserve water as best we can. We get part of our water from the city and they are asking people to conserve water due to the heat and refrain from outdoor watering if possible. I guess it’s a good thing I didn’t start that garden this year after all.
I think I’m going to start shopping online for a freezer to put in the garage. I can’t decide between a chest freezer or an upright so I’ll do a bit of research and see what Home Depot has to offer. Most of our appliances have come from there and we are very happy with their delivery, installation, and service.
I’m going to put some chicken breasts in the crock pot before we go to bed. I’ll slice some red onion and toss in some fresh garlic then pour BBQ sauce on top of it all and cook it on low overnight. I can shred the cooked chicken and it will make great sandwiches. I’ve got a pound of ground beef to make hamburger patties as well so we’ll have food prepared ahead of time instead of cooking during the heat of the day.
Have a blessed Tuesday night. And stay cool, ya’ll.
