Hot Days and Blue Jays

Skinnny Cow ice cream. 150 calories and delicious. Nuff said.

I had a very productive day in spite of the fact that we’re having record breaking heat. We don’t have air conditioning because there are typically so few days a year that are this unbearable. We have ceiling fans and a standing fan, but right now they are merely moving hot air around.

I couldn’t stand it any longer and went shopping, where it was air conditioned and also crowded-obvs everyone else had the same idea of cooling off. I got a lamp that’s a perfect size for the piano and a pack of eighteen velvet slim hangers. I have been on a mission to replace all of my ugly plastic hangers with this new version and I’ve pretty much completed my clothing; this time I was working on the captain’s clothes.  It was a very satisfying task to line up all his shirts facing the same direction with matching hangers.

Every morning and afternoon a family of scrub jays comes to visit and eat; they love raw nuts. They’re such smart and friendly birds. Every year they bring their new batch of babies so we get to meet the entire family. If they come by and we haven’t put their nuts out, they look in the windows and squawk until we do.

  1. Love the story of the blue jays and the way they let you know when they want nuts. I use to have a bird feeder outside of my window. A family of cardinals would eat there and would peck on the window when it got low to let me know they wanted more feed 🙂
