Today was "For the Birds!" Heat and Projects

This morning? I got up just at Sunrise and was sitting on my back porch with a cup of Coffee when I saw these "things" flying around...At first I thought it was BATS because we get those little insect lovers around here but on further inspection, it was Birds of some sort. I have NEVER seen so many aggressive little buggers flitting through the sky and apparently feasting nicely on some sort of insects! Maybe it's our recent heat wave,,,,but fun to watch them dip and dive!!

So today I finished some Paper Birds...........

I don't generally use a lot of NEW papers,,but the Cremes and Black Cardstocks with a bit of Crepe and some German Dresden for "eyes" was fun to put together........

I made a whole "Flock!"

Also started some witches hats which along with my remaining letter "G" in the "Bling" didn't get Glittered.......I'm "Schmitzen" as my son Andrew would say and perspiration and Glitter are NOT so much Fun!!!

But this is all trivial as folks all over the Country suffer from drought and fires and days and days of Heat! Enough already!

If you've followed the News, there are several severe fires in Washington State right now. They are all, as us "Locals" refer to it, "East of the Mountains." Washington State is split darn near down the Middle by the Cascades. The weather on "This side" of the Mountains is remarkably different year round than the East Side. They get more Cold, More Snow, More Heat,,and alas, more fires! I hope you'll take a moment to keep all of those Farmers, Ranchers, their Family and Animals both domestic AND livestock in your thoughts and Prayers!

We're going to be heating up a bit more here on "This side of the Mountains," okay, heating up a LOT!! Most of us don't have AC at home, but at least it cools down here at night!

This morning? Right before I got out of bed, I was thinking, "I'd like to meet a Nice Man with Lake, River, or Beach Property for my dogs." Then I simplified by saying, "I'd like a man with a nice body of Water," My tastes and requirements have certainly Changed at this stage of my life!!!

Stay Cool, Stay Safe,
Appreciate the little things like a run through the sprinkler or a visit somewhere with AC!!!"

(I know Blogging has slowed down as of late,,weather, Pinterest, Facebook? But pls leave a comment if you can,,,,,I'm starting to feel like I need to change my toothpaste or deodorant!)

Hugs, Love and a "Sticky" Bus!
