I woke up this morning to silence.
Since they have been redoing our crescent, for the past month or so, every morning around 7am I wake to the sound of heavy machinery starting up. I actually started getting up earlier so I could have my coffee in peace and quiet. But this morning I didn't wake up until 8:30 am. Obviously I thought it was earlier as I didn't hear any machinery. I looked at the clock and gasped! Even the hounds were still in bed. Usually Gobble Guts Gloria won't let me stay in bed 'cause she wants those morning treats!
I went to the living room and looked out the window and saw this. (see our lovely new sidewalks)
I rushed around to get the dogs out to go potty, feed and water them and put coffee on before the noise started. But it's 10:30 am and there's still no one around. Ahhhhh!!
Yesterday I woke up at 7am to this.
I'll call it the tamper. All day the tamper went around tamping down the dirt on the road.
Everything in our house shook and rattled all day. Between the heat and the noise it just gave you a headache!
So the silence today is very welcome. It's actually kind of eerie.
And Fred.......well, he's in on the couch.........
........with a bully stick hangover from last night. I gave him one to settle him down. He's been getting so antsy since they haven't been able to get out for walks because of the heat. Yesterday afternoon I actually soaked them down with the hose to cool them off and of course that turned Freddie into a complete wild man!! So, I left Fred there on the couch, got my laptop and came outside. I don't even mind the heat right now. My Gardenias bloomed and the smell out here is great!
I've never had Gardenia's before. I just love them!
And yesterday I even finished another dishcloth for my daughter.
Today I will attempt the pot holder from Dip-Dip and The Bridge and the Blogsville Ladies Crochet Society!
Have a great weekend everybody and try to stay cool!
