Good morning everyone! Yes, I am very late getting this out today, an explanation will follow. It was cool this morning with a temp of only 12C (54F), much too cool for July. And yesterday at 2 pm it was only 15C (59F). That’s the kind of temp we would expect in September, not July. However, it is supposed to warm up again this week, so I hope that forecast doesn’t change. I didn’t sit on the deck with my coffee this morning, I decided to stay inside and listen to the birds through an open window. A bit warmer that way. Both the song sparrow and white-throated sparrow were singing nice and loud this morning. Plus a robin singing in the distance. And a solitary vireo was close by with his continuous song. I don’t think he took a break for about 2 hours. Coffee was the first chipmunk again, I think he has learned a valuable lesson. That is, come early and get the best and biggest peanuts, and don’t get chased by anyone. He’s even getting a bit braver and will come while I’m standing there.
Now for a health update; meow, meow.=hey, you say I can do this part. I changed my mind, better for me to do it. Meow, meow.=Not fair, you say me, that promise. And I can say those words too. Maybe you want sore feet? No, no, it’s all yours. Meow, meow.=Good, okay everyone, my human got sick with this COVID-19 virus, whatever that is. But it seem like it bad thing, hurt lots of people. He over it now, sort of, but he still have problems. He call them leftover symptoms. Not know meaning of that word. But he have fatigue all the time, hard for him to do things, not even walk much. Plus he have hard time concentrating, whatever that mean. That why he not reading your posts much, just not able to do it, and he very sorry for that, make him feel very bad. He even have real hard time writing his own posts, that why they late sometimes like today, or get missed totally. He might have these problems for months yet, doctor not know for sure. He need to be very, very careful now, his immune system (not know what that is) not good, he could get this virus again, maybe worse next time. I hope he get back to normal soon, this not fun thing for him. I get to talk about flowers too, top flower is called “dame’s rocket”, what weird name for nice flower.
In this picture above is flower called “daylily”, nice orange color, would look even better if pink, my favorite color, but still look very pretty. From my human and me, we hope you have beautiful Monday and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
