It’s the last day of June & it has been a scorcher! I went shopping with my sister-in-law today & I thought I’d just melt right into a puddle. The rest of the week is supposed to be similarly hot. When will I get my towels & sheets washed? Because I ain’t doing it when it’s in the 90s outside. In fact, I’m just going to place a moratorium on cleaning any cloth items in the house. If I have to go to work nekkid, so be it (note: there is NO DANGER of me running out of clothes to wear before the weather cools down).

Dr. M caught a glimpse of the baby wren – apparently shortly before it fledged. Baby birds are so ugly they’re cute.
I made a little business card holder for work. I used knobbly yarn so it doesn’t want to stay upright very well. I might try again later.

Dr. M had his morning coffee with Ms. Pinky.

I stopped by my dad’s house & came home with some home grown goodness!
Meanwhile, Dr. M was fixing all the things so that it will be easier for me to do yard work after his surgery (four more weeks!). Here is what he said (if you didn’t already think he was a nut, this will convince you): Imatellyawhat, that @danabugly is gettin serious about the yard work! I changed out the air filter and spark plug in Lil Red Ridin Good (under her rain cover) to fix a hitch in her (the mower’s) giddy up, checked out the battery powered weed eater, and serviced Benicio el Toro so she could have a trim mower (new blade, air filter, and spark plug, fresh oil and gas). Heck, I even sprayed the tool shed lock with WD 40 so she maybe can get in it now. Phew, where’s my ice pack?

Your weekly daylilies.

The only picture is this “before” shot of my little pony tail. I like to sleep with my hair pulled up so that it’s not so hot. It also gives it some body the next day if I’m not going to wash it. There’s no “after” picture – I was going to show how goofy it looks in the morning, but nobody needed to see that. Whew boy!

What I think my hair looks like during the day vs. what it really looks like. Who can get any work done with all that hair in your face?
Saturday, June 29th
Finished! Well, except that I need to find some mandala rings to crochet them onto. They’re going to be wall hangings for my office. Also, maybe they’re not finished because I finished the last one with purple & I like that a lot better than the red, so I might add some purple rows to the smaller ones. We’ll see.
We sang patriotic songs at church this morning. And this is the end of pride month – I can’t imagine what it would feel like to be a gay person in today’s climate (or a person of color either). And there are children living in criminal conditions. I know I tend to be pie in the sky, but it’s hard for me to be patriotic when there are so many blatant injustices – injustices that supposed “good” people rationalize away with “but they shouldn’t.” I don’t care if they should or shouldn’t – they should all be treated with dignity and basic human rights. (Although let’s face it, as a bleeding heart liberal I usually think they should have fabulous human rights, not just the basic ones.) OK, getting off of my soapbox now. Have a great week everyone!
