Love and good morning.

I can't take tylenol....I do Aleve or Ibuprofen.
And it is not any better today.

PJ, glad art school started again.

Suze, I was really hoping you'd feel better today.

I think it's a bit much, all of the hype about the heat....it's not hot at all. Really. It has already been way hotter than this....it is 86 where you are love....I think they go on and on about it so much that everyone just worries.

And please please please make sure your air con is on love. s xx

Um...the temps have been in the high 90s here for well over a week. The heat index has been 108°, 108°, 109°, and 109°. Four days in a row of record heat.

That isn't hype, it is reality.

Love you suki.
And all of you.....

Also, I am a bit stressed from the pain I am in....we all know what that's like.
I can't eat, and I have to or I can't take any ibuprofen. I am thinking I am going to have to try the ice pack on my elbow....or put the sling on. How are you supposed to do anything with a sling on?

I can certainly understand stress from pain. I deal with it every day because of the pain in my hands and feet. We have to use our hands all the time, so what can we do? Just suffer, I guess.

I have enjoyed watching them so much. They will be in the nest less and less now and eventually just sit in the trees until they go south.

Each year it's a little different and exciting in its own way. This year was the year of grins, nothing like a clumsy bird.

It is muggy deadly hot here today. We drove (in air conditioned car) to get apples and veggies today) but it's too hot to be outdoors at all.

We are so used to this heat in Australia that I forget it is not normal here, or in Canada. s

Had to take Billie for a little walk to try to get her to pee - no luck. She did not like the walk.

Bro is not coming by today, he's going straight home to mow his yard, heat notwithstanding. I hope he gets over his cold soon.

I've got to get busy and clean up the house to prepare from my love-lorn old friend's visit on Monday... I hope he's gotten over his feelings for me. I don't want him gazing at me like he did the last time he visited 22 yrs ago...

Love the pics of the ospreys.

Oh, those glorious birds, Ann. I'm so glad you share them with us. We had just one sighting of an Osprey when we first moved to the Catskills - never again. He sat in a tree all day & watched us move in.

PJ - Of course you dun good honey. There was never any doubt.
You can be profound when you feel up to it.

Opi - I just went up to the bedroom to squeeze the pillows for ya. Now on MrHev's firmer one I don't really feel the individual pieces of foam - but my less filled one I am aware of the pieces. They aren't hard or anything - but you can definitely feel them. I'm not sending it back - we can always use another pillow, plus I'm getting used to it. I really enjoy it.

Chic - What a sweet idea to have each other's favorite flower tats. I am tattoo-less. I also don't have pierced ears. How weird is that?

I do wish weather people would warn us, but not scare us. Last night's forecast we were told it was going to be 'torture' and 'stifling' - but here it might not even be 90. My sis in Virginia will be at 100 though - and of course this is the week we're headed down there for a visit.

You guys were whining up a storm - I'll have to catch up later.

It's 91 F here! And my weather program has an "excessive heat" warning.

I've never seen an osprey, but I have seen an eagle. That was up in Alaska years ago.

Suze, how's your elbow?

Chic, I like the flower tattoo idea too. I am too cowardly to get one but like the concept.

It is going up to the 40C/110F here the next couple of days so I will not be outdoors at all. ** can't take the heat and am glad we have air conditioning.

We ordered pizza for dinner, too dang hot to cook.
