The week after this week we will once again have temps in the 90's, but this coming week it will only be in the 80's and here in the desert, that is PERFECT! We can still leave our windows open and allow the fresh air inside. When it gets to the mid-90's, however, we close up the house and turn on the air conditioner (we set it to 79 degrees)...being in our mid-60's, both hubby and I feel and react to the higher temperatures much more than we used to...
But, for now, the weather is wonderful!
In fact, it was SO WONDERFUL that I went out this morning and cleaned off the boxes of books and STUFF that were sitting on the front porch! I even swept it (I did not use the hose due to water restrictions). And, the birds are all busy. We have been visited for a week now by 4 grosbeaks who like to appear every afternoon at the feeder right outside my office window.
And, yesterday hubby and I brought in my new chair, threw out the OLD, USED, dog-smelling COUCH, and another chair. They are awaiting pickup by the trash company today. So, now hubby and I each have a recliner/rocker in the living room. He has taken over his "MAN CORNER" and I'm next to the front door. I like it there. I can open that window and hear the birds.
I brought back some horse hair for the birds, but they haven't touched it yet. Hmmmm....I know the birds up at the ranch LOVE IT for their nesting material. I'll give it a few more days...
My hollyhocks are doing just fine. I think next fall I will plant them along with my sweet peas all along my chain link fence.
That's all for now.
