So here is the same shot I took last week, looking down the driveway. It's now over three weeks since I last mowed. Um yeah, the "zen machine" time this Summer has been pretty scarce. But in this heat, I'm thinking that's OK.
I noticed a bunch of leaves on the ground...Autumn coming? Or tree complaining about no rain?
I did stumble across this book at a yard sale on Saturday. It was only 50 cents, can't beat that deal, so I got it. And not just that we want to have roses, eventually anyway, at the farm, but because...
...it's from 1930! Even though we have a
lot of new books of all kinds, there is just something I love about thumbing through the pages of an old book. There is even a smell of an old book that I adore.
Here is Brisbane...sleeping under the ceiling fan and air conditioning at the house in town. We are thinking he knows how to deal with the heat...so we hung around under the fans and air conditioning and did some reading...
But there is hope on the horizon! This is the forecast for next week. A really strong chance of rain for most days this week and then the weekend is clear. Temps not over 100, so that's good, but creeping back up.
