It's a glorious day in Wisconsin. The temp is hovering in the low 7o's, there is no humidity (worth mentioning anyway), and a light breeze. The windows are open and one can hear birds singing. Days don't come any better than this. It's a welcome relief after almost 2 weeks of high heat and high humidity. And the best part is that I don't hurt anywhere! Humidity and Arthritis don't get along at all. In fact, I hurt much less in the winter than in the summer when the humidity is with us.
What is everyone doing for the long weekend coming up? For over 25 years we camped with a group of friends, and I do miss that on the holiday weekends. But, I don't miss all the work that goes with it. It was getting to be too much for Mr. D. and me. Maybe we'll go out there for a day trip to visit for a couple of hours. Will see if it is going to rain or not.
The Streptocarpella plant pictured above is blooming it's little heart out this year. Every year I get two baskets for each side of our patio. It is a plant that likes mostly shade with a little filtered sun peeking through. Our patio seems to be the perfect spot for it. This is the first year that I haven't had a hummingbird visit every night. Or at least, I haven't seen one. The hummers do like the plant and I have missed seeing them this year.
We hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend. For us living in the northern states, it usually signals the end of summer (although we do have many nice days ahead of us in Sept and Oct.)
Until next time,
