What a Weekend!
I whined like a spoiled kid during our long-running bout with extremely hot, dry days. It's been miserable...not to mention a nightmare for farmers, plants, critters, and just about everyone else.
Therefore I feel it's only right to express my exteme pleasure and gratitude for the last few days. We've had nearly early Fall weather...low eighties and cool nights. The a/c is off and the windows are open for the first time in many, many weeks. We're still far behind on rain, but nevertheless...this weekend has been pure joy.
Not only humans are celebrating the lovely weather. I've noticed a major increase in outside activity. I'm not sure where they were before, but the birds are back, pecking in the morning dew. Squirrels and bunnies have returned to patrol the yard. Even our little hummingbirds are buzzing around, fueling up in anticipation of their long migration south.
Ahhh. Gotta love it. We're grilling tonight. Indy and Bogey are looking forward to the delights of a dropped yummy morsel or two.
Bright sun, a gentle breeze, and comfortable temperatures are a never-fail elixir for feeling good. Don't you wish you could bottle it?
Here's hoping your weekend has been every bit as spectacular as ours!
