The 'Feels like' is 95. (Actual is 85) The air is thick with pollen and humidity. I am not going to go outside to enjoy my deck today. DH has gone for some chest x-rays and one of those double layered pizzas. 

I have been busy watching TV, erm, broadcast and videos. PBS is doing that thing on Vietnam. Son sent me this:
 I had never heard of it, but found it enjoyable. DH said it had been on the television. I had no clue. I began re-watching my Poldark videos to refresh my memory before season 3 begins in a little over a week.

I've been practicing my coloring. It does need a certain touch. Found out the pages in those color books are like flat wicks. I started a page to see what colors went with what colors, I have in the marker pens. No idea how long the markers will last with it being sucked into the paper so fast.
This is the back of my page. The front is a little better. Haha. I've tried some of the gel pens. Some are impressive and some of them simply don't work. Guess I shouldn't expect too much for what I paid for them - Think it was $11 something for 100 of them. Did part of one design with the gel and the level in the tube went down half an inch. I will have to plan carefully on anything big. I do take my time, still make mistakes, but it's not like I'm doing it to make a living. It is relaxing and time does seem to fly.

I haven't been able to take a picture yet, but it looks like Tacky's friend plans on sticking around. He's black like she is, but not as fluffy. Just glancing, it's easy to mix up who is who. I've named it Simon not knowing if it's a boy or girl, can always add an 'e' later if need be. He let DH pet him yesterday, so he is cautiously friendly. Not that we need another animal to feed, I don't mind one bit.

Well, DH is back and the pizza is smelling ready! Y'all have a great weekend and I'll see you next week! Take care!

Foggy Morning

 The top picture is across the road, the meadow. I can see why my nose has been so drippy and why I sneeze so hard. Goldenrod! Well, too blah to take pictures, so I gave Tacky some loving as long as I was out there . I hung around, waiting for sunrise.
I think this is it. The fog has lifted some. I imagine DH hated the drive in to work this morning. I don't know if you can see 3 spiderwebs in the tree in the foreground, but you better believe I am going to stay clear of it.

We had a nice surprise yesterday. J came for a visit with his wife. She made us a delicious peach cobbler, fresh out of the oven. It was scrumptious with vanilla ice cream on top. Mmm-mm!

We need to get a gate on the ramp to the deck. One of the neighbor's dogs has already decided to mark the deck. He/she pooped on it! I know it wasn't the big white dog, not that he wouldn't do that, he did the patio big time, last year. Thank heaven DH had it sealed already.

Y'all have a great day, night, whatever. I'm going to bed soon, no sleep last night. I watched the first part of the PBS Vietnam story, and well, one thought led to another and DH was getting up.
