Good Friday Morning!
The sun is beginning to poke out and the air feels refreshed. Gosh it was hot (94) and muggy yesterday. After dinner the wind whipped up and I could hear distant thunder. Before I knew it we were having a whopper of a thunderstorm. Fletch was watching something on TV and I was sitting at the table reading when POP and the power went out. That was around 9:30. We lit some candles, Fletch grabbed a flashlight, and we headed out to sit on the patio. It was so still and warm. The wind had died...very muggy. Around 10:30 I went up to bed. I opened the back window wide and crawled under the sheet. In under 10 minutes the power came back on. Thank goodness because the upstairs was very, very warm. So I closed the window, turned on the air and the next thing I knew it was 6:10 this morning!
Yesterday I mentioned that we had been hearing a very noisy sharp shin hawk most days. Well, while I was hanging clothes on the line yesterday morning, I heard him again. I looked up and there he was near the top of a dead tree two houses down from us.
Again there were small birds in the tree paying him no attention whatsoever. He flew off calling very shortly after I took the picture.
This morning while feeding Mabel, I looked out and saw a couple of deer having their breakfast of fallen apples.
If you click to enlarge, you will see the deer on the right is a young buck.
Yesterday's post also mentioned how our fig tree is loaded with figs this year. None are ripe yet, but when they come in, there will be a lot!
The anticipation is killing me! LOL
And, finally, the best creature of all: Mabel!
She says it is much too hot to be modest - LOL. I'm surprised the grass looks so green in the picture.
Here's hoping my conference calls (2) go quickly and smoothly and I can ease into weekend mode. I've plans to meet up with Dee tomorrow so am looking forward to that. And no other plans to speak of which is how I like it. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend whatever you do - enjoy!
