This & That Tuesday



Hello all !

Hope you are keeping cool from the heat !

Early this morning  it was nice and cool so I turned off the AC and opened up the windows to air the house out  .  I fed my birdies , then Miggs and I went for our walk . By the time we got back the humidity was setting in again as the sun got stronger . So in I went and closed all the windows , blinds and drapes and turned the AC back on !

It is cool under our porch so I sat , had my coffee , yes I do drink hot drinks in the heat I know I am weird lol and took photos of the birds flapping about the feeders feasting and eating as much as they can before the rains roll in for the after noon . I hope we get rain… we can use it that’s for sure and a good T-storm would be great as I love T-storms … Miggs … not so much !

These guys fight over the feeders when they know there is plenty for all as on the other side of the yard in the back there are two more feeders just like these hanging up !

Miggs likes to sit in the heat of the sun every now and then . Here she is watching the birds flap and fight over these feeders ! The look on her face say’s it all lol !

Well… I know the birdies will be happy with full tummies before the rain and so is Miggs cause we went on our walk . I just hope my gardens will get rain from the storms and they don't  pass us by as they usually do  ! They said 70% chance of  rain .. I guess we will see .. wont we ? !

                                                 Until next time … Have a good day !


                                                           Thanks for popping by !
