Good morning. It's a bit early to decide what the weather will do, although we usually get some kind of rain a day after Virginia is rainy. Yesterday, was their rainy day, so I think today may be ours. We had a gorgeous day yesterday, while last night was a "warm fuzzy pajama" night. And a fleecy red sweatshirt night for Tootsie!
Tootsie perked up yesterday long enough to eat a dish of roasted chicken for lunch. I gave her another dish of chicken for supper, but she only ate half of it. This morning, she is still not up to par. If this keeps up another day or two, I will have to call her doctor.
Tonight I do have to work, and then again on Tuesday night (to make up for last night). I'd rather not, but I have to pay for the chicken somehow. Tootsie needs some new sweatshirts too. Her body temperature is usually a bit on the warm side, but now it is noticeably cooler.
The other day while Tootsie and I were walking around the yard, I noticed how strange one of our trees was looking. I will have to ask Eddie to take a look at it this week. It has a long twisty limb hanging that almost looks like a huge snake. I took a photo, but had to cut it in half to show it here. The bottom photo (bottom half of tree) shows the "snake" hanging down loose. This top photo (middle of tree) shows how it twines up through the tree. It's just to the left of the middle of the photo.
Folks, I don't believe my eyes and ears. The weather channel is now giving us tips on how to stay cool in the heat this summer. It started off with "Summer is here". Did I miss something? I was under the impression that summer started three months ago, and that now the heat was fading away into Fall weather. Either the folks at the weather channel are not really too swift, or I am badly in need of a another cup of coffee.
That's it for this morning. I need to get dressed and cuddle a bit with Tootsie. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
