My furiends..... it's hotter than a Volcano here at home at the moment. Here we are visiting my Grandpaw.
ZOE: Yes sir-ee - we need to have some stayin' cool tips here.
Scarlet and I suggest - don't do zoomies in the "big hot sun" time of the day..... and in the early evening - find some nice cool lush grass to lie on.
SCARLET: And on the inside of your house - lie up high and position yourself under the nearest air-conditioning duct!!! Do not let the peeps move you. A soft growl will tell em' who is boss!
ZOE: Always have big bowls of nice cool water handy.
Don't forget your veggie garden - see what Grandpaw has to do:
He has to build big umbrellas to shield his plants from the ferocious hot days here in Adelaide.
He hasn't planted many tomatoes this year - but if he doesn't cover them - the tomatoes will burn and cook on the plant! Last week we had a 44 C day (111.2F) and it was BAD!
Even my mum and dad dad cover the veggie garden with two big king size sheets after Christmas - traditionally late January and February here produce the really hot days! Today we are going to get 42 (that's 107.6F).
OOoooo here is Grandpaw coming back in the from the garden with a green bowl. Scarlet and I are excited and want to see what he's got! What's in there.....what's in there?????
I see three tomatoes, three capsicums and two eggs. The chickens are still laying (even though we bark very loudly at them when Grandpaw forgets to put up the little schnauzer gate...BOL!)
My mum and uncie gave us schnauzers our schnauzery hair cuts last Monday..... we hate the process - (especially me!) but we do feel cooler afterwards.
I know my furiends overseas are having the opposite weathers at the moment..... so be good and stay cool..... or stay warm ..... whatever is applicable for you!!
Bye for now, Tail Wuggles, Rubie xxx
