Can We PLEASE say Good Bye To The Dogs Days of Summer?
So here we are almost into October and the thermometer is still registering in the 90's in Maryland. UGH. I tell you I'm done with it. This past summer was just brutal in terms of the temperatures. Record heat waves...which meant one thing; A/C was running non-stop at our house. Another UGH. We recently had a break in the temps for a couple of weeks and I was LOVING that the windows were up, the A/C was turned off, and temps were in the mid to high 70s during the hottest part of the day. I thought I had said goodbye to summer once and for all.- at least for another year that is. So long, sister! The mornings were cool and I never left the house without a light sweater or jacket. It was such a welcome change. But like the proverbial "bad penny" it seems that summer has turned back up in Maryland again and the weather gurus are predicting more hot weather for the rest of the weekend. Enough already!
As you can see, just like any other summer day, the impatiens are still going strong in the hen house window box...
...and Lilly pants for air on the back porch steps because it's just too darn hot...
...but no matter to Darla and Lucy who enjoy a cool dust bath in their run as the trees shade them from the blazing sun above...ahhhhh!
...while Zeus spends his time supervising the activity that goes on all around him (and probably wonders "what ARE those things, anyway?")
..and yours truly is still wearing her very fashionable backyard ensemble of cut off jean shorts and flip-flops!
But hey, despite all that, I hope everyone has a great weekend :-)!!!
