I know there are many times of the year we need rain and wishing we had more, but good grief! Someone needs to turn the faucets off around here for a while. If I heard correctly, a chance of rain is predicted for the next 7 days also.
Have wanted to take some pictures of what is left of my blooming plants the last week, as they are pretty much doing their last "Hurrah" for the Summer. But the weather has not permitted, and when I looked at them late this afternoon, they were pretty beaten down from the heavy rains. Since the temps are still pretty warm, maybe they will perk back up, before it gets cool.
I did not get any fun projects done this week, as have been taking care of some "necessary" projects - one being a plumbing issue. Hopefully taken care of, but was told I need to have two faucets replaced within the next year - I knew that was coming, just did not want to hear it. :-(
A RANT: It is that time of year again!! Unfortunately, I have a Hickory Nut tree that hangs over my courtyard. :-( Belongs to a neighbor, and why on earth many years ago, someone allowed that "thing" to grow there - I have no idea. Do you know what grows on Hickory Nut trees??? Hickory Nuts !! Those things are dangerous when they fall ! They will dent your car like hail does, one cracked my daughter's windshield several years ago, step on one and turn your ankle, and heaven forbid if one hits your head (ask me how I know this)! What adds insult to injury is - each afternoon usually around 3:30 or so, the squirrel population camps out in the tree and has dinner and if you walk outside you will be bombarded with the shells, along with whole nuts falling. Their dinner goes on for at least 2 or more hours. This daily event started about a month ago and will last another month or so. Ok - I am through (I think)!
Have a great weekend!
