I have not felt like writing anything yet today. However thanks to an "inspiring" post by @TheHorse I am posting now. Here is his link http://www.mylot.com/post/3086537/what-do-you-do-when-youre-too-busy-to-write-a-thoughtful-post-on We were up at 5 without the alarm, even though it is Saturday. So we went to breakfast and to pick up a few items at Wal Mart. Hubby is charging the air conditioning in the car I drive. I got some vitamins and some curtain rods. That came after we ate at Jimmy's Egg. Since we have been home hubby has put the new seat boards in this bench, as well. He helped me do some shelf rearranging last night and I have been organizing in the kitchen. It feels really good. We have picked a recipe for supper. Since breakfast was huge we only ate ate little sponge cakes topped with frozen berries and fresh yogurt. We are having hamburgers tonight. So this is how I post if I cannot come up with anything really thoughtful. I have had no more wild animals in my yard. It is only about 93 F here, that is comfortable for us. I have spent some time reading posts and such on here and will do some more as the day goes by.

I think our humidity was down. Also, with all the greenery and less pavement it feels cooler.

The bench is beautiful, Gertie. I´d love to have such a beauty in my garden.

It belonged to my sister but she did not want it at the apartments. The iron on it is good, the wood was not well maintained. I am hoping to sand the wood really well on the back, and hubby put new oak planks on the seat. It will be nice. I love to look out at how the sunset colors the clouds across the fields. It is facing north.

Temps about the same here. Both breakfast and dinner sounds good.

This is about the hottest I can handle comfortably. I actually thought we might get more rain.

@GardenGerty ......Same here. I could handle it a lot better if it rained occasionally.

@celticeagle We had rain, and then dry, then tomorrow is hot, then maybe rain on Thursday. I hope so. Tomorrow is supposed to be the hottest day so far.

We changed plans and went to Sonic for chicken strips, we wanted to drive the van and make sure the air conditioning was working. However the hamburger is thawed and we will have that tonight.

That's great that @the horse helped you out. You've been busy. I am a fan of benches. We have three on the property but I'm considering asking my hubby to make another. They're so handy to sit on when I need a rest from pulling weeds.

We have a porch swing, and two sets of lawn chairs in addition to this bench. They are a handy place to enjoy shade and cool breezes.

@GardenGerty Porch swings are wonderful, too. Last night hubby and I sat on our deck swing and read together a little just as dark was coming on. Peaceful.

This time of year I am spending lots of time running with family. Trying to get things done, trying to take them places or even just chat on the phone. I am not posting very much at all.

Today I feel a little "puffy", probably because we changed our plans and ate at Sonic, lots of fried foods. I wake up with headaches often. It will get better, though, I am sure of it.

Well, a fine post it is!! Those thoughtful posts sometimes turn out to be not as good as a non-thoughtful one.
