This morning my daughter and I went out for breakfast and let me tell you everywhere was packed because of Fathers Day. Which I hope all the dads and single moms who played both rolls had a wonderful day.
We couldn't even leave the windows down in the truck because the heat was already up. But we ran to Walmart just to pick up a few things. When we came out of the store the heat hit you like a nasty hair dryer blowing the hottest air in your face.
We then headed back to my house where it was cooler but I had turned the thermostat up to high this morning so it was about 80 in the house. Tracy didn't stay very long since the a/c in her black car doesn't work. That poor kid.
I have been watching this baby hummer in the mornings and I sure hope his mom is still looking after him. I know it's a male because it is starting to get his ruby throat feathers. But he doesn't seem to get the idea of how to use the feeders. He flew to one as soon as I hung it but it was only water. I watched him do this a few times so I switched it around with the sugar one. But he flew to the plane water one again I know it was because of the bright red and was looking on the top of the feeder where there isn't any thing. OK this little guy needs some help. I took the feeder down and took it into the house and made some sugar water for that feeder also. I wasn't out there today and by time I changed it over yesterday it was way to hot to sit out and see if he figured it out.
Since it was 110 today I don't know how cool it will be in the morning but I hope to have my coffee out there and maybe see if he has figured it out or I'm afraid he will die.
I thought I had things figured out for this heat and staying home thing. Well while I make myself do some things I am not ready to start painting or doing some of the other projects I had planned. Even though the house is nice and cool for some reason I just don't have the desire to do much. I think part of the problem besides the heat is that I have all the blinds closed to help keep out the heat and makes the house dark. I don't want to turn on lights as you can even feel the heat off the lamps bulbs.
Good Night All
