Tuesday was back-to-school for many. Not for me! It's
bitter sweet. I still have nightmares about teaching.
Hubby delivered Meals on Wheels, both Monday and Tuesday (his regular day). I have my client on Tuesday afternoons. So it was a normal day for us. The kids had been over and Josee brought her glitter tattoo kit. Grampa was proud to go and deliver meals wearing his tattoos! I visited my client with tattoos on my face and arm. She was impressed!
It's that time of year when the gardens are at their peak. We are still in a drought, so I water sparsely. Happily, we had 1 mm of rain Thursday. It helps, but won't fill the aquifer. We had 2 cords of wood delivered, and it got damp, but will dry. The goldfish pond was filled, and snakey was back.
I am keeping the bird bath and fountains going for the birds and critters. Daisy was helping herself.

Also, several American Robins, including some late season juveniles, a red-eyed Vireo, Blue jays, Goldfinches, female Rose-breasted Grosbeak, Nuthatch, Red-tailed hawk squawking, Eastern Phoebe, female Yellowthroat, Swainson's Thrush, and a yet-to-be-ID'd birds chirping at one another in the trees.
We had a Swainson's Thrush at the fountain. Much fun!
|She is, apparently, quite thirsty!|
After our working day, hubby suggested we go out to dinner on the patio, since there may be only a few summer-like days left. Fall approaches. There was much traffic on the water.
This guy kept circling Tuesday morning. Drove me nuts. (Not a long drive!) He circled three times, then I was at my client's house, and they were circling there, too. sigh. I looked up the plane ownership and emailed the club. (It belongs to the Brockville Flying Club.) There is no need to circle like this, so low, over and over again. I got a response back, and they apologised. They asked where I live and said they'd tell people to avoid hovering over our house.
