Out to do the chores this morning to get another hot day started.
After breakfast Hubbie and I headed up to church to get the work done before the temperature got to high.
I saw this cartoon and didn't think much about it until....
I saw this real life picture at a county fair....

This fellow looks like he is enjoying his fan .

I made a trip to Sam's Club in Asheville to pick up commercial coffee filters to use as cake pan layers and some French Vanilla creamers that we use at church. Our local Sam's stopped carrying both these items so I drove over to Asheville and stocked up on both in case they decide to stop carrying them. It was coming a bad storm just as we made it back to the van.

Hubbie was with me and we made a stop at the WNC farmers market on the way home to pick up peaches and a watermelon. We drove through several rain showers on the way but we were still very dry when we got here.

After a short rest we headed over to the estate sale that we go to each month when she has it. Daughter had already been there and bought a chest of drawers for us to pick up. I didn't find much this time but g-son was with us and of course he found a box full of super heros that he had to have. Hubbie found a tackle box full of fishing things and I found a box of buttons and a woven small chest. She has extended her hours to include Sunday as the 1/2 price day so we will probably go back then.

Back home it was surely miserable outside when I did the chores. We found a hole the dogs had dug against the house the water could pond in and seep into the basement so we hauled dirt from the garden and blocks to fill in a deter any more digging.

Daughter baked after we ate our snack supper and then it was my turn to finish my baking and icing. It was almost midnight when I finished and with my back aching I headed straight for bath and bed so I'm late finishing and publishing this blog.

God is good forever.

The farm people do such a good job taking care of their animals in weather like we've been having... It was neat seeing the pig fans!!!!!

Sounds like you had a busy but successful day. We are headed to Cookeville this afternoon.

Have a good day at the market.
