Did you all have a good weekend??
(Dang, how am I gonna' make this into a decorating post....Oh...I know, DGS was here and we did a bit of school shopping and THAT made it a holiday :^) Then we cooked sausages and good stuff, and set them on the kitchen table using my antique ironstone! Had a red and yellow checked tablecloth too :^)
We spent the rest of the weekend looking for a cool spot! It was 111 degrees in my backyard yesterday afternoon. I went out about 5:00 PM and started the oscillating sprinkler in the shade of the big trees. I put it on low so it would be gentle, and about 50 little birds showed up for a shower. I made sure they were well protected under the trees, since we have a hawk who has taken up residency in the big water pan at the fence. The poor thing is so hot he just sits in the pan of water for an hour at a time. I feel so sorry for him that I don't even chase him away. I bought a big package of foil casserole pans (and put bricks in them for weight and to have a landing pad) and have water out under all of the bushes so that the little birds and squirrels can sneak in for a drink and a bath without having to worry about the hawk :^) DH thinks I'm crazy, but I noticed him patroling the windows to watch all of the water arobics!!
Hope everything is good where you are...I'm still watchin' for the bus to pull up in the driveway :^)
