I hate to do it, I really do, but I give up. I.just.can't.take.it.anymore. All my hard work, all the money spent on flowers and hanging baskets, all the watering, all the weeding, all for nothing. I didn't even get to enjoy it. Any of it. I had dreams of sitting outside each evening, watching the kids catch lightening bugs and playing catch with the dog, roasting smores in the new chiminea, enjoying the fruits of my labor, cocktail in hand. That last one went out the window about three weeks ago anyway with news of my impending belly. But as for the rest, it is now nearing the end of July and I haven't sat out there once! Not once! At seven o'clock in the evening it still feels like high noon. I watch the news and see the weather and it pretty much looks the same across the country. So we are in the same boat. I hate this boat - get me out!!
There is one thing that has brought me some pleasure outdoors. I seem to have attracted lots of birds this year. Maybe it's the pregnancy thing. Maybe the mommy birds feel safe having their babies around me, like I can relate to them. Or it could just be the fact that I have quite a few birdhouses in my yard. Yeah. That one.
Let's take a peek on the front porch. Now you must be quiet, their mommy does not like it when her babies are disturbed. She puts on quite a fuss.
Let's get a little bit closer.
Can you see them in there???
How bout now?
Yep, they look hungry to me.
I can relate guys. I feel hungry all the time too.
Are you stuck indoors? What's bringing you pleasure during these dog days of Summer?? Will there be a sudden baby boom next Spring??? I'm not talking about birds!
Enjoy your "hump" day!
