I think a Sunday without an afternoon nap is a wasted weekend. Jilda and I walked after we had our morning coffee. We spooked a deer that had come up to our apple tree to check on the progress of the fruit. It was a young doe and she was gone in the blink of an eye.
It was a great morning for walking because the temperature was unseasonably mild. In fact, tonight will set a record here in Alabama for the date.
I saw on the weather channel where it's hotter than the hinges of hades out in Arizona near where my friend Grandpappy lives. I'm not naive enough to believe that the hot weather is gone for good because it's not even August yet. I expect there will be days when it will be hot enough to bake biscuits on the walkway of our house.
But I'll take all the gifts Mother Nature sends our way. We opened the doors and windows to let in the fresh air and we took a long afternoon nap.
Life is good.

  1. Northerners ask what we do when it's 110 in the shade, and I tell them we stay out of the shade.
