Weekend Coffee Share#30-Desert Life In July

Coffee’s ready. Grab a cup and pull up a chair. If we were having coffee I would tell you that I am starting to fall into a weekly routine. Not saying it won’t be disrupted by some random event like the shifting tides of the pandemic. There are more advisories about the need for masks when indoors. I was just getting used to participating in a yoga class without a mask. I continue with the Zoom book group. We discussed a book I really liked this week, so that helped me open up more. The book is ‘Station Eleven’ by Emily St. John Mandel. I heard it is being made into an HBO series and I will look forward to that.

The roadrunners have been out and about around here more and more. I spotted 2 siblings (?) crossing the street in the next block. They quickly disappeared into a backyard. There was a large adult outside the clubhouse when I went for a yoga class. It made that rapid clicking sound as it took shelter behind a shrub. One of these days I might have a camera ready to capture a good photo of one again.

It’s still a bit too hot to go for walks. I did go out walking before sunset, 108 degrees, and it was a challenge to make it through one of my routes. There was a hot breeze blowing and I didn’t mind getting sprayed by one of the large sprinklers from the golf course. I wonder if the breeze is like the wind chill factor only it’s the wind heat factor. No roadrunners in sight. They were probably sheltered under a shady bush somewhere.

    I so enjoy reading about your days. You sound very content but I know you wouldn’t mind it a bit cooler. Can’t wait for your close up of a road runner.

    The baby palm tree is very cute. My daughter love palm trees of all types. We used to rescue young plants that grew in bad places and re-planted theme to more suitable places when we lived in the Mojave. It’s wonderful with enough water for sprinklers 🙂 Thank you for taking the time to have coffee with us. Have a great rest of your weekend!

    108 . . . Deb, I’d be trapped in front of the closest AC vent or fan. Yikes ! !
    I hope the humidity was at least down in the single digits..
    Sorry for the late arrival. We left for some vacation time with youngest son late Friday night and have been on the road or with him ever since.

      In the past I would have been glued in front of the AC too. We do have good AC that keeps our house really comfortable. I think we are getting accustomed to the higher temperatures. Have fun on you vacation. Thanks for stopping by, Gary.
