TODAYS PROJECT START TO FINISH

 

It’s a long weekend for us  here in Canada as it is a civic holiday on Monday but Papa took yesterday off as well so he has 4 days off WHOOHOO ! So ya know he will be building some kind of project this weekend and that he has !

Papa and I wanted to shade the birds water fountain in the centre garden cause it is always getting the sun all day directly on it . So today Papa built a Pergola over the fountain , it wont shade it completely but it is better then in the baking sun for the entire day !

                                              Papa calls it the Birdie Pergola !

PHOTOS FROM YESTERDAY

 

Yesterday was a perfect summer day, my kind of day, warm sun and cool breezes. I was finally able to get out and do some photography as the past week it has been to hot and humid but yesterday was perfect as is this morning. I love waking up early to birds singing, roosters crowing and fresh sweet smelling cool air !

FINALLY WE GOT RAIN !

 

We had a bit of a thunderstorm last night. It wasn't much of a storm but WOW! did we get rain WOOHOO ! about time, we hadn't had rain for a month and all the grass was looking brown and very thirsty . I had been trying to keep all my gardens and planters watered but nothing seems to be the same as rain water for them fresh from the sky’s .It’s strange how mother natures rain does the trick. Papa and I sat out on the back porch for a while in the dark just listening to the rain and feeling the cool breeze that came with it, listening to the crickets as they made their sounds so loud as though they were playing in the rain drops, mind you after it was done it got even more humid as the moister went back up into the air. It looks like it may rain again today, big dark clouds are floating around today and it’s humid so today we are just staying indoors where its nice and cool.

                DSC_0007                         Until next time , hope you all stay cool were ever you may be !

WOW! SOOO HOT !

 

It is brutal out there and only going to get worse through out the week ! Thank goodness for AC ! We haven't had a stich of rain for 4 weeks. I guess I will be doing a lot of reading indoors in the cool. I went out early this morning to feed the birds and make sure they had clean fresh water to drink and I was sweltering, by the look of me ya would of thought I just ran a marathon in the heat, can you imagine being like the animals with their fur coats in this heat  WOW ! just the thought makes me want to jump in a freezer !  Bad enough getting hot flashes these days but having them on top of the heat and humidity UNBEARABLE ! Miggy is sleeping in the nice cool, she will try to go out every now and then just to check on the yard then she will be at the door barking to come in where it is nice and cool, she’s no dummy she knows its cool in the house lol . So on that note , hope you all stay nice and cool where ever you are and have a great day !
