July 2021 Back Fence: Trying to Avoid the Summer Heat :-)

Welcome friends old and new to the Back Fence for July.

 

Two Men and a Little Farm: SPLIT RAIL FENCE FLOWERS INSPIRATION THURSDAY

 

We've had rain in Michigan every day since last week Friday.  It's been oppresively humid and I think we are in for a two day break before the temps ramp up again.

 

As long as I get a chance to open windows to get fresh air in the house and I have a day when I can mow the grass, I'll be happy.

 

I've been mowing every 2 weeks however with all this rain.....

There are many elements: wind, fire, water
But none quite like the element of surprise

Good Morning, sorry I've been MIA, I'm helping my sister with an injured bird.  'Alex' is at my house right now for rehab.  My sister works full time and Alex the bird needs more intensive treatment and it's easier to have him/her with me onsite than to drive back and forth.

hello all

birdmama so glad you can help nurse Alex back to health. it is easier to have the bird close by. dh said the roads were awful yesterday coming home, some of the roadways he was down to 5-10mph, normal speed is 60+mph. many people heading to the shore towns. 

 

anyway. not much else. did chores,did walk,hung clothes outside, all taken down and put away

 

can smell rain close by. see all later

Hello and Happy Independence Day Woman Happy

 

I finally got back into my usual groove or routine yesterday.  I did the grocery shopping in the morning - yikes - I rarely shop on Saturdays since I retired 3 years ago.  I also mowed the front and back yard.  I've been doing it every 2 weeks however we got so much rain for nearly a week straight  the grass started getting unruly.  I also knew the temps were gonna skyrocket again - they did  90 degrees today -  and really who likes to cut the grass in that kind of heat?

 

My sister came over for 4 hours this afternoon to celebrate the holiday.  We ate inside because again it was ugly hot outside (to me).  She did the cooking and my goodness I'll have left overs for a few days.

 

We had sloppy joes, corn, baked beans and macaroni salad.  Of course while I was heating up the food we nibbled on Better Made (Detroit brand) regular and barbeque potato chips. For dessert she bought a dutch apple pie from some company that's supposed to be the shizzle named Achatz handmade pies.  I think they're overrated and today so did my sister.  At least the vanilla ice cream we had with the pie was good. 

 

Suffice it to say I am stuffed.
