It’s going to be between 100 and 108 degrees here for 10 days. Add humidity to that and it will be uncomfortable to say the least.
I go out and water the plants and do what I have to outside and rush right back in.
My zinnias are looking very pretty against a landscape that is turning more and more brown as summer moves on.
I’m still getting veggies for my table and that makes me happy. I don’t think I was able to harvest one vegetable last year.
As it gets hotter and hotter I keep moving the plants closer together and pushing them toward the corner where the tree branches hang over the fence.
It’s kind of like a jungle and Charlie loves to wind in and out of the plants in the darkness they provide.
I don’t know why he goes in there. But he disappears for a bit and then eventually comes back out again. I guess it’s cooler in that area with all the tall plants grouped together.
My tomato plant is now growing up past the tree leaves. And so is the cucumber.
Also my two lavender plants are still alive and doing well. Which surprises me. I usually kill them by now!
What I’m Reading:
Right now I’m reading a book Jodi Picoult wrote back in 2002. It’s called “Perfect Match.”
Picoult brings to life a female prosecutor whose cherished family is shattered when she learns that her five-year-old son has been sexually abused.
What does it mean to be a good mother?
How far would you go in the name of love — and justice?
What I’m Watching:
I finished watching “The Confession”, a short TV series based on a true story, last night.
I think I’m going to start watching “Prime Suspect” with Helen Mirren tonight.
Yesterday I cancelled Netflix. I was having trouble with it. I couldn’t seem to keep the audio that explains what’s happening to stay off. I’d get it off and mysteriously it would come back on.
I looked up various articles on how to fix that on Google, but nothing seemed to work.
And as often as not, I’d want to watch a show and it wouldn’t display. It would say the show could not be shown now.
I rarely watched Netflix anyway. I prefer AcornTV and BritBox.
Just like yesterday morning, the skies have suddenly turned dark. Yesterday we got a good bit of rain.
