The mornings are still really great. So I have been taking advantage of them. I set up some watering stations for the birds. I have a young hummer that isn't quite sure about the feeders. I always have one with sugar water in it and I have seen a adult or two going for a drink. Yesterday I hung a feeder without sugar for the other birds and this little mite went right to it but I guess it didn't know what to do and flew off. I saw him do that again this morning so I moved the sugar feeder to that side. I hope he gets the hang of it soon or he may die. I know it's a male as he is getting his ruby colored feathers on his throat. I also hung one at the other end of the porch without sugar. I moved the pretty bird bath my granddaughter gave me to another place closer to the bushes on the property next door hoping for more shade. Also used the plastic pans the are used under pots to fill with water. These birds will need all the help they can get.
The temperature reached 105 today and it is very dry. The temperature will rise steadily for the next week and they still aren't sure how high it will go but they are thinking around 115. In the early morning when I get up I open the door and some windows as it is really cool because of the dry air. It's nice to get some clean fresh air in the house. My computer room is on the east side and I usually have to close the window and blinds by 8 am. The porch is on the west so I can leave that open until around 9:30 am. And that is when Fred and I have to go in and close up the rest of the blinds.
By 4 pm you can start to feel the heat more in the house and I have to lower the thermostat a little more.
Tomorrow morning I will make a very early run to the grocery store for a few things and get back home.
Good Night All
