These very hot days........

 from what I am reading and hearing from television, social media , friends, and family

these very hot days are upon us all.......as we are all watching the July days

melt into August. How long must this go on??...........as we know here in Texas......

a bit longer

The flowers are struggling to stay perky and in bloom 
and I struggle to get out in the heat to water them.
yet.....as I hold the watering hose.....I am delighted to 
see the thirsty creatures brave enough to swoop in for a drink
They bring such beauty in just a few seconds of flight
some are still , quiet, and do their best to blend in.
Although it has been dry and we have temps up to 113 at times,
we have been blessed to get a relieving rain shower from time to time.
I spend a little bit of time each morning outside to weed and just to visit
the garden paths.  In the late evening.....it is still in the high 90s.......I drag
the garden hose around to each thirsty plant.
In the middle of the day, after the house cleaning and dinner dishes
are finished....... I spend my time with my needle.....stitching the hours away.
So tell me........what are you doing on these very hot days?
Are you vacationing.....are you on the lake or beach......enjoying the water, 
maybe you are enjoying your garden?
I would love to hear!
Keep cool everyone!
