This morning we hit it again for a couple of hours. We dragged out 3 logs, and two loads of briars and sticks. We cut and dragged out a LOT of green briar vines. We left them along the fence for our new ram to eat and enjoy. There's probably another 2 loads of briar vines after he cleans them up. My husband found a wasp nest and they swarmed and stung the top of his head three times. We ran to the house and put his head under the kitchen faucet and let the cold water run over his head. It helped take the sting out. We sat down to cool off and kept ice on his head for awhile. We went back out and finished up what were doing. Since the wasps were in an area that we are going to be working in, my husband sprayed them with wasp spray. I watched him VERY closely for any signs of allergic reaction, but he was fine. We took showers, collapsed in our recliners and took naps.

Bay that sounds like such hard work, and then heat on top WOW
It is so hot and miserable that we don't have to be working to get soaked in sweat. Just going outside and standing there is bad enough, much less trying to do anything. Heat index 108 today. We work in the mornings and knock off around 11 or 12 noon. Then we are wasted the rest of the day. And we still have July and August to get through! :th

There is NO such thing as a 9 to 5 for country folk. I would start work at 5 AM or much more often at 3AM when the HEAT was really on and work was to be done and stop about noon then back to work after dinner for the day's end feeding chores, fall into bed and start all over again. :caf
