As you know, we had a miserably hot week. We broke records. Us, and pretty much everyone, here in the west. Today, though, the high was only in the high 90's, and they are predicting 80's-90's next week. I would love to see some 80's, especially. No rain is predicted, though some clouds are.
The past 2 days, the air has been unhealthful with yellow smoke. I haven't seen blue skies in a couple of days.
Thyri is recovering, but is still coughing, and is not going to her once-a-week daycare until she's better, of course. She did talk to Dh yesterday to say, "Happy Birthday, Pop!" She's all about birthdays these days.
We didn't do anything too much for Dh's birthday. I did get him a burger that he used to eat. It's kind of a grilled cheese/burger cross with queso, on sour dough. The kids gave him a gift which we will really enjoy...a DVD/CD player.
Ours broke months ago, so we couldn't watch any shows, movies, etc. Nor could I play music of my own. Now, we can. They included 2 DVD's. One is about Liam Neeson as a hitman or special forces guy, who is retired, but is sucked back into his old line of work. Something like that. Then, they included a couple of movies of their own for us to borrow. One is a Harrison Ford movie that we've never seen.
It's nice having my T.V. working again.
Thank goodness, also, that I have some water now. We need to run the pump 2 or 3 more times to fill the tanks, but I had enough to run the misters for the chickens. I don't think that they could have taken the awful heat, otherwise.
Basically, we didn't do much this week. It was just too hot by mid-morning. I'm looking forward to doing a few things that need doing, now that it's supposed to be cooler this coming week.
The hummingbirds ate better today. In the extreme heat, they would go hours during the day without eating. I think that the nectar was getting too hot, even though the feeder is under an overhang. With the temperatures as hot as they were, even giving them fresh, cool nectar didn't help, as it got super hot very quickly.
Well, that's all from here. How was your week?
