I'm Loving These Cooler Temps

July 6, 2018

Good morning.  My goodness, it feels rather nice outside this morning.  At least for now.  Temps are in the low eighties, the sun stays mostly behind the clouds (at least so far), and there's a teeny tiny breeze.  My flags are so happy, they've been waving at the trees and anybody else who passes by.  Now if we could just get a bit of rain, the whole day would be just perfect. 

These past few days with temps in the high nineties have been wicked, so Pogo and I haven't been doing much of anything.  Today, though, we might be able to sit out on the porch for a while.  We did go out there earlier this morning to water the plants, and the breeze felt oh so nice.  There's a chance we might have thunder storms sometime today.  Here's hoping they bring a little rain with them

I spent most of yesterday watching QVC.  They've been having some really awesome bargains. I did order a new Air Innovations swirl fan for the living room out in the house.  This type of fan reaches every part of the room, so it doesn't matter where you are sitting.  You'll still feel the cooling breeze.

Wow, a Northern Flicker just landed on the ground near the greenhouse, and I grabbed my camera to see if I could get a photo.  Of course, that was not to be.  Big mouth ran to the door and started barking the minute he saw me grab the camera, and the bird flew off into the trees.  Thanks, Pogo!

Today I thought I'd share some photos of the plants growing in the greenhouse.  The veggies seem to be growing rather slowly, but they are growing.  This first photo shows the bell peppers, and the second photo is the tomatoes.

In this last photo, there is from left to right, my Christmas mums plant, a blueberry plant, and the strawberry plant. 

Somehow a wicked nasty bug got into the house yesterday and I didn't notice.  However, while I was asleep last night, this nasty little critter feasted on my arm.  There are three really big red bite spots on my arm this morning. 

Let me tell you folks, when I catch up with this "whatever bit me," it is going to breathe its last breath.  I'm going to smack it to death and then flush it down the toilet!!  I'm not a violent person, but turn me loose on a bug and wowsie!  I turn into a murderous lunatic!  Whap!  Take that!  Sit still so I can smack you!  Sometimes it takes a bit of work, but I don't stop till the job is done!

I think now I'll throw my bedding into the washer.  While it is washing, I'm going to take my coffee and Pogo and I are going to sit out on the porch.  So, till Sunday, Y'all stay cool and have a fantabulous weekend. 

Hugs, Edna B.

Ouch! If that bug knows what's good for him he'll skedaddle out of the house and hide.

Your plants look nice and healthy will be nice to have some home grown veg tastes much nicer, shame about the bird photo maybe it will come back soon.

May be you had them on the go a bit late, your veggies so they are still a bit small, but they will grow fast this month am sure! You'll have to give them enough sun(specially tomatoes and peppers) and water them well.
Oh my od, that creature that gave you the red spots on your arm better be careful and stay far away from you! It doesn;t know you when you are on the muderous path LOL!
(I read out loud to Jan your part about the creature and it's forthcoming death and it brought a big smile on his face)
Have a great weekend
