A Bird House

August has turned up the heat; the last few days have been hot. We can live with a little heat since the humidity went down and winter wheat is ready to harvest in our area.

I’ve been stacking hay and J’s been getting the semi ready to haul in the harvest. The tractor isn’t a bad place to be when it’s hot out.

This morning I am headed to the County Fair. When the 4-H Advisor asked me to be one of the visual arts judges, I told her I have no visual arts training and have never judged them before. That fact didn’t seem to bother her as she went on to say the most important part of the interview judging is visiting with the kids about their project. Last year I was a judges’ assistant.  In addition, I’m a warm body willing to volunteer for a good program, so I must meet the minimum qualifications.

Here are a couple of blog posts I think need to be shared:

Darcy wrote about having courage in our everyday lives.

Ann Voskamp shared her view and personal experience concerning suicide and mental health.

Dairy Carrie, found a few loop holes in PETA’s latest Undercover video filmed in a North Carolina Dairy.

I hope you are having a wonderful week.

    Thanks for sharing that post – I was supposed to measure another bin this morning, but we have thunderstorms forecasted, so I rescheduled. I wanted to be brave….but figured being on top of a metal grain bin in a lightning storm probably isn’t very smart, lol.

    Have a great time at the fair! How wonderful you to volunteer! I bet you will be a great judge, and I know you’ll be an encouragement to those kids. Have fun!

    4-H is such a great program. Good for you for helping out! I always wanted to be a pie judge …

    The small town fairs always need volunteers. Good for you for helping out.
    I prefer driving the semi over the tractor. Don’t know why I am intimidated by the big green machine!
