It is so hot that even the lantana plants are drooping, despite all my watering. I fear the plants won’t make it to August if there isn’t a break in this heat.
The black-eye Susans are still hanging in there. I just love the bright gold of their petals. They are so cheerful.
My SIL, daughter and Andrew came over yesterday morning and worked on the fence problem.
My SIL used chicken wire and secured it at the top and bottom inside where the trees are. So if either of the fences fall down, there is still a barrier.
I kept the dogs in the bedroom, where Abi shrieked the entire time. Andrew is scared of the dogs. Of all dogs.
Andrew has a dog, but it is a quiet and docile Boston Terrier they rescued. The dog has never barked that I know of.
I don’t know what type of conditions this poor dog was in prior to his rescue, but he is terrified of rain and has to be on medication for anxiety.
I tried medication with Abi before I
ever left Texas, but it seemed to make her anxiety worse. I do often
give her children’s cough syrup at night for her cough though and that
does help her.
At any rate, I don’t have to worry about the fence anymore.
Andrew brought his tool box and helped his daddy with the chicken wire. He loves to help out.
My SIL says Andrew is going through a whiny period. I told him in this heat, I’m whiny too.
I did finally receive the painting. But I’m working on various things in the living room. And I’ll show it all to you early in the week.
I’m moving even slower in this dreadful heat.
