Sunday morning

Sunday, September 09, 2018

It is in the 50's, very windy, overcast, and not very summery outside.
I went out t the mailbox and watched some crows talking to each other and they dive-bombed one of our hawks who landed in a tree. I then saw the mate of the hawk soaring above, but not intervening. Crows are the hyenas of the sky, so these hawks flew further away to get away from these darned crows.
I have never liked crows, although I know they eat the debris of carcasses. They are beneficial in their way, but they have invaded this neighborhood over the past ten years.

I have cleared the mantle and shelving in the bathroom of everything and have it boxed for post-painting. I still have my dresser and some more things on my armoire` to clear off. Draperies and valances will come at the last minute. Cleaning my wood blinds is on the agenda for today, as is cleaning picture frames and antiques.
I have virtually NO knickknacks, as I hate dusting anything. Thank goodness for my dishwasher for some of the candle holders and washable things.

I had to switch to flannels last night.. not a good sign, as we are supposed to have a bitterly cold winter and it is still SUMMER!

    Goodness, I cannot even remember what it feels like to be cold. Never even got to wear a sweater over the winter, let alone a coat. Wish we could trade a bit, so you could have temperate summer weather and we could have some of your rain! Blessings on your health, friend.

    We are getting rain here in Maryland and the temps have dropped from the 90's to the 50s-60's. Many places are flooded here and we are expecting hurricane Florence to hit the Carolinas either Wednesday or Thursday. The whole East coast is on the alert since they are not sure how it will track. Maryland will probably be affected by bands of rain from it. Water is already seeping in the basement on one side of the house.

    You will enjoy the fresh paint! I am not a fan of crows either, but as you say, they have a purpoe.

    We are starting to get cooler nights, but it is definitely still T-shirt and shorts weather here. We have a month of warm weather before it starts to cool down, although the shorter days definitely signal that fall is coming. I hope you have a beautiful Sunday!

    I'm always impressed at the differences in weather around the USA. Currently I'm in Houston, TX and it 84F while you're wearing flannels. Wishing you a great Sunday and I hope your winter is mild.
