I knew today would be toasty when I stepped down before sunrise to feed and water the chickens.  

We didn't have a lot of outside work planned. That was fortunate.

We did go see our great nephew Jordan swim. He is one of the smallest swimmers on the team but he's competitive. Today gave him an opportunity to swim with kids that were in high school. Swimming on that level, it's not about beating the swimmers in the lanes on either side of you, the race is against the clock. 

I'm not sure what the algorithm works, but it's fair for all the kids swimming. 

This is the first time we've seen him swim this year. He did good. I'm proud of that young'un.


  1. Glad you were able to go to his swim meet. We have lots of different types of athletes in our family--but no swimmers (yet). Glad you got to the chickens early on before it got too hot. Have a great night. Hugs- Diana

  2. Of course you are proud of him. And applaud his every endeavour. You can keep the heat. My post today revels in our cooler weather.

    1. Thanks for your email. Frozen bubbles ARE beautiful and I do hope that you (and Jilda and Jordan) get to try them.

  3. He obviously loves it as long as he had been competing. Good job Jordan.

  4. You gotta love a boy that loves to swim! Good for Jordan. I hope he continues to compete

  5. Great shot, Rick! My former husband's son once excelled in swimming. Unfortunately, by the time Mike reached high school, his teammates kept growing taller, eclipsing both his time and spirits.
