It's been sooo hot here...temperatures in the upper 90s and even 101, 102, 104 last week! On top of that, it hasn't rained in weeks, so everything is fried to a crisp. I've refilled the bird baths every day, and it's been marvelous watching the birds bathing and drinking...blue jays totally submerging themselves in water by flapping their wings to get it up over their backs and robins jumping in and fluttering joyfully. This morning, i awoke to the sound of rain on the roof and trickling into the rain gutters. What a wonderful sound!
The only drawback...i'm leaving this morning for Maine for a week's vacation with my father and sister, reprising family vacations last taken in 1998 when the (as yet undiagnosed) early stages of my mother's Alzheimers made her unable to cope with mixed weather and a new cook at the music camp. I hope the rain doesn't mess up our respective plane flights, but other than that, it's a welcome relief.
Hope everyone is well...when i get back, i hope to blog about the Vermont Quilt Festival that i attended at the end of June (and met sweet Karen LR from sew and sew life) and of course the cats (all well!) and catch up with my blogging friends. Be well!
