Good morning/afternoon all,
Feels like we may have a thunder storm here, very warm but some dark clouds looming.
I hope we do - in spite of some rain yesterday we need something more to clear the air.
Hope everyone has a pleasant Sunday.

I have proof the world is ending! Plywood is now more expensive than PVC sheets

Another hot day expected here. We made a quick trip over to the Rehab House early to tidy things, turn lights on, sweep cicadas, water the potted zinnia we have on the deck.

On the short back road ride over, found a very very large Red Slider sat in the middle of the road. A good 12” long. A quick stop, I picked it up & squish...a massive release of urine! Yep...a long spray. Luckily nothing on me...
Released into the water-filled ditch that leads to the stream. 😀 First save of the year.

Over at the house - the Robins are growing & growing.

And back at the home front, the banana tree is loving the heat & humidity!

Far too hot for me - it's been about 72F in my garden and I couldn't stay out long in that. 🥵
Thunderstorm didn't arrive in this area.
Lola has had some good grazing and basking time today but still prefers to stay just by the door rather than on his grassy patch.

I bought new screen doors to replace the busted ones in my back doors.. I’ve been out staining them and it’s muggy!!!! It rained most of the day but the sun is blaring now!
And we're supposed to get your leftovers tomorrow. It was hot at 88f and humid but then a nice little breeze is starting to blow through now. I'm supposed to get a new washer and dryer delivery tomorrow. We'll see what happens ☺️

I would be freezing at 72f and need leggings and a long sleeve shirt. Even 80's doesn't get to hot if the humidity is low.🙂

I find that interesting--anticipation that bad weather is coming? Or some days never materialize like you thought they would?

I guess my comment is "do torts know/sense more about weather than the weather reports"? I think i've seen more than one report about torts who don't venture out just because weather.gov says it's going to be a "nice" day. Do torts have a better weather radar?

I don't have any scientific evidence for this, but I think torts do have some sort of built in barometer, maybe they can sense air pressure, but he definitely is more likely to spend time in his hide on colder or wetter days.

As for staying near the door I don't think that's anything to do with weather, it may be a security issue. He likes to wander in and out of his room and panics of he can't.

Many many cicadas, high heat & humidity is the theme to my day. Front section of the garage door, under the night light, was crawling with Cicadas this morning.

Need to catch up on some gardening chores that I slacked off on during the House Rehab project.

Happy Monday

I think all animals have a better sense of weather than we do.. it looks like they can smell and ”feel” impending changes..

Good morning! I’m jealous that the Cicadas haven’t made it this far south yet.. ill be working from home today on the dreaded computer... I will do this a lot this summer so that my son can mostly stay home.. he has a daycare but I hate for him to have to go unless I just can’t avoid it.. haven’t checked the weather forecast but it looks bright so far..

happy Monday all!

Ok folks - Rehab House update.

House went on the market Friday morning. Multiple showings over the weekend, three solid offers all way above the asking price. 😀

So, signing the papers here in an hour or two. Have to love DocuSign.
that is awesome.. hard work paying off! I am very happy for you and Wifey!
