How can it be August already? It seems like only a short time ago that spring had just begun and we were planting our flowers and garden. It has been so very hot that I've noticed that the birds aren't as active as they usually are. We have bluebird houses in the back yard and I've always enjoyed watching them, but haven't really seen as many bluebirds as in previous years. The goldfinches are more scarce at the feeder this time of year, but once in a while I would see an Indigo Bunting, a bird that is mostly blue, but haven't seen him this year. I hope my feathered friends are surviving this hot summer.
A birthday party was held Saturday for my father-in-law. He turned 86.
The birthday party was held at the family farm. His three children and their spouses were there along with 4 of his 6 grandchildren, including my 2 children. A nephew and his family came by for a visit. It was a nice day and G'pa enjoyed sitting outside for most of the day in the shade where he could look out over part of the farm. We enjoyed a meal of KFC, sliced tomatoes, spinach salad and, of course, birthday cake and ice cream! G'pa really enjoyed his day.
Time to get ready for the first day of my 3 day work week. Have a good Monday!
Until next time...
