What’s Up? – Less Rain – More Heat

Less Rain, More Heat…


We are having less rain but more  days of hot weather. The sun burns for many hours of the day, sometimes it’s 9:30 pm and it’s daylight.

The more sun, the lesser amount of birds on sight. However, the feeders  get empty in a shorter time and the consumption has  increased to almost double. The rains that we had have damaged parts of our lawns due to excess water that saturates the ground and part of the good top soil has washed out. 

Now that Tyler (8) is out of School on Summer recess. He’s got a busy schedule for many activities. He’s is doing well with the swimming lessons previously and this time he’ll be training for competition, they see a potential  swimmer to represent his level. He also signed in the Library to read a number of books and see if he could win a prize of tickets to go to a trip to the Atlanta Zoo. In July he will attend to a daily camp for two weeks. He’ll be very busy there for sure. He will go for one week to learn advanced lessons of reading by a local College. And all kinds of invitations for birthdays parties. Let’s not forget going to our Community Pool etc. All what I mentioned will give you and idea of how everything runs in this humble house of birds.

  1. Great Tyler is doing so well and achieving, with a great array of summer activities HJ. It is an important time for his age in their personal formation, it is good that he has very positive activities for him to enjoy growing in. We are having a lot of rain at present also, but we really need it after a long drought. Have a great week!

    • He knows a lot about birds because I helped him with a project for school and he had to do a presentation about birds life cycle. He was picked to represent his class in front of all teachers and the Principal. Thank you Indira! 🙂

  2. Great gallery of shots, HJ! And also great that Tyler has such a busy schedule! Our 7 year old grandson has the same schedule, lol. He finished Dinosaur camp yesterday and is with us for the weekend before heading off to boy scout camp on Monday! These kids have a busier life than us and sure keep us hopping to keep up with them! 🙂

    • That is exactly what’s happening, go back and forth to different locations, then added to movies, Library shows, etc, etc. You get the picture! July is all taken daily, including weekends! We need extra vitamins and a magical elixir to keep up! Thank you Donna, try not to feel sorry for us. 🙂
