So it was pizza for breakfast. It has all the food groups, right? To make it better, I only had ONE piece, heated up in my convection oven.
Every time I went outside, I felt exactly like that piece of pizza. I think it only got up to 105 or so, but the convection oven winds turned into an air fryer extraordinaire! Although still very white, I'm now extremely well done!!
That was made all better when Jack came back with a cottontail buddy who shared the water station. Speaking of which, I've been having trouble with it not coming on in the afternoon to refill it for the nighttime critters.
I checked out all the wiring before finally being exasperated enough to read the directions. Silly me, I thought when I set the interval to 7, that meant it would run 7 days a week. Turns out it means it will turn on every 7th day. When I changed it to ONE, it magically worked. Now it will turn on every ONE day, or in other words EVERY day!! Yay! Another conquest!!
While all that was going on and sweat was dripping down my nose, I spotted the changing of the guard at the morning dove nest.
I raced inside and grabbed my camera. YES!!! I finally got a picture of the baby!! Mom, or dad as the case may be, didn't smother him this time, but let hime take a look at the world.
Then the newly arrived parent started feeding him! I think I took 30 pictures. This is the best one. They really aren't that far away, but there are lots of branches between them and me.
Maybe I should have lunch too!! This is the absolute last picture you will ever see of a grilled cheese sandwich for me. I do love them SO much, but that bread just kills me every time!!
Speaking of critter food ... remember this picture of the wandering jew that was dying in the front due to some little rat eating the wires? Well once fixed and water added, it grew exceedingly fast. I mean those little green leaves were six inches tall in just a couple of days. I was so excited!!
Until yesterday when I went outside and discovered THIS! Wait ... where are my plants? WHAT THE? Yes, you are right. Those darn bunnies jumped up there and ATE MY PLANT, those little buggers!! I guess I will have to cage it, if it even grows back. They took it right down to the roots!!
So it's 80 degrees out with some overcast skies. We just might get a smidgen of rain like yesterday. I'm keeping my fingers crossed! In the meantime, I've got two things on my list. A screwdriver that will take those weird screws out of the detector so I can disconnect it and a new bunny-proof plant, if there is such a thing!! In the meantime, I'm putting a chain and lock on my fridge.
