Out of sorts Monday

We're having a wonderful heat wave here! Two days n the 70's. Had planned to work outside all day but had to take kids to the dentist in the morning and then my son got a call for a job interview 90 miles away and had to go apartment hunting afterwards. Found him a very nice apartment within a mile of where he will be working for a reasonable price. We're just waiting for the phone call that will tell him when he starts work now. After we got home I was in a weird mood so started my walk and half an hour into it I could smell smoke so headed home. Shortly there after my son called and said the forest behind our property was on fire. We tried to find the owner and couldn't but after all the rain we had it burned itself out after covering about 150 acres. Still got a lot of smoke but it will clear out overnight. My daughters dog got hold of two of their baby chicks that are now two weeks old and killed them while I was gone today. they had moved them to a larger pen and the holes was a little to big and they had gotten out where the dog could get them. Guess this means they won't be free range chickens! I'd rather get rid of the dog but it would break her heart if we did so guess we keep them penned or make a movable pen for them.
My daughter took care of our Monday night Family Home evening lesson. She taught a short lesson on how Heavenly Father doesn't expect us to always be right but to learn from our mistakes and live life as best we can.
We did get 100' of black plastic laid and mulched around one side of the garden perimeter late morning before the phone call. The girl's got the first 32 center blocks moved to the garden for the next garden bed. Hopefully we won't have any phone calls tomorrow so we can get a full day's work in. I think I'll go fill my Hot tub up and take a long soak and see if I can shake this mood I'm in.
Tomorrow is another day and hopefully this funky mood will be gone!
