Can't believe it's August already. It's been warm here, but this week is supposed to be cooler, in the 80's and 90's.
I can see why Nel loves shopping Amazon. I told Mia I would get her a music box, so Nel suggested I browse through Amazon, and pick something that I think looks like her, and she would order it. So I did. I got hooked after awhile, there were so many cute ones - a carousel, a unicorn, and there was even a fairy purse music box.
I didn't get any of those, but I found one that was so unique and pretty, and that's the one I chose. I'll show it to you later, as I want Mia to see it first.
It's hard to find landscapers up here, but I have a couple loyal ones that come through for me. One came by and cleared out the whole back yard. It was growing mullein, which was hard for me to do. I was given a weed eater, and my neighbor showed me how to use it. It's my new toy, and I've been trying to keep up with grooming the yard this Summer.
Jess, I finished Season 4 of Virgin River! Couldn't stop watching it haha. You're in for a surprise at what happens on the last episode.
As soon as I step out of my house in the mountains, pleasant and unusual things always appear to me.
My son made dinner one night, and we watched the movie Hustle. Can you ever go wrong with an Adam Sandler movie? I thought it was a great movie.
There is a mourning dove that comes to my lawn every day. She collects small twigs and things that fall from the pine trees, and then flies off and returns and does the same thing again. She's possibly making a nest? She is the sweetest thing, and I noticed she has a white mark on the center of her forehead. These aren't the best pictures, cause they are through the window. She flies off every time she sees my camera, and it's hard to get a good picture of her.
There's nothing like Thrifty's ice cream in the Summertime, and this black cherry was so good on a hot day.
I am enjoying the Summer days, but anxiously waiting for Fall. I was told that they just put up signs in the woods in this area not to walk the trails at this time because of fire season. I'm glad they did that, and it is a relief to know that less fires will be started by careless people roaming the woods. I can sit back and rest in my surroundings.
