It has been extremely hot here the past few days.  It's 97 degrees today and supposed to get to 99 tomorrow.  The humidity is over 90% so it's sticky and miserable.  We've been staying inside this afternoon taking naps and watching movies :)

We did go to a local Blueberry place and picked about 3 pounds of Blueberries at a cost of $1 a pound. Pretty cheap.  It was around noon by the time we got there so didn't have the stamina to pick a few gallons.  We wanted some fresh ones for blueberry pancakes in the morning.  We'll probably go back and get enough to make some jelly or maybe even some Blueberry wine!

We made a little water mister for our birds.  They love the birdbath when it's hot and we thought they would like a mist of water...they do! 

We've got two houses with already hatched Bluebirds in them.  I feel so sorry for them in this heat as the houses are in the sun.  You have to place them far enough from trees that snakes and other critters can't get into the nest from above.  I wish I could figure out a way to give them a little shade.  Poor babies.

It has been miserable here this weekend! Very hot and humid. I promise last Monday it was nice but NOT today.LOL
I agree about those poor little bluebirds....the houses have to be away from trees so they are out in the open and they get HOT. Hope they make it. Keep us posted.
Enjoy those blueberries!!!

Stay cool!!!
