We got the good news that the rest of this week was going to run in the mid 80's
This is like no August I can remember.
Cool nights, cool mornings, just a tad uncomfortable by 2 pm.
I'll take it.
On Monday I was pulling up some dill from the front garden and just as I went to toss the stuff away I spotted two friends that I had not seen.
I took the dill over to a patch of Parsley that we were thinking of pulling out since it had gone to seed and placed the dill in along with my two friends.
Well, they are happy as a bug in a rug just getting bigger everyday and eating all the parsley nibbles they can find.
I think another day or so and they will go into stage two of their cycle and with a little luck I hope to see if I can watch them. I have decided if I never get any fresh parsley any more I will keep growing it for the butterflies. They are busy flying all over the yard .
We are finished making the pots for Henry, the big gas kiln, and
starting tomorrow we will be glazing.
Then after waxing I used up some clay that need throwing.
I made some bottles and wee plates to go along with cruets.
This is good sleeping weather, as long as I don't dream about those dogs trying to get in the house again and take away the piles of beef I had in a pan that I was trying to keep them from eating. I woke myself up yelling, get out, get out,get out.... to those dogs while I was trying to get them out of the house.
Where did that dream come from...???
The dogs are at the door....
