What’s Up? – Patriotism, Heat and Humidity


Patriotism, Heat and Humidity


We are still under a heatwave that is not yielding any rain, instead we get only humid sticky weather.

Despite the actual weather, we had a wonderful Independence Day (July,Β  4th).

Our son Tyler made some little flags and placed them on the table center when we had lunch. Tyler and I, traditionally wear the same design and color shirts every 4 of July, he loves that and he usually picks the new designs for that particular day.

We also ate our lunch utilizing some paper dishes with the flag motif. All went perfect, and we enjoyed some moments together. At night, we had many friends from our Community exploding many fireworks until midnight.

We went to bed very satisfied of the joyous day we had. Despite the heat and humidity.

My backyard continues to be visited by many birds, some of my local birds are going through the process of molting, which give them a different look. I do not like to display them on my galleries like so.

  1. You may get some rain from the system that’s developing, and that may bring us our first tropical system of the year. At least you’ll get it at the beginning, instead of at the end. Me? I’m going to lay in some peanut butter and find my insurance papers.

    I smiled at your molting birdies. The first time I saw a molting male cardinal, I thought the poor thing was going to die. Nope — just part of the process.

    • I’m used to seeing them during the molting process, most of them look really terrible, but at the end of the process they look more beautiful than before! I just hope that the tropical storm will not affect you. Thank you, Linda. πŸ™‚

  2. Our parrots are also molting, and they molt in such an organized way that it never makes them look bad. I guess they’re lucky!

    • For birds living in the wilderness, the molting process is very risky because they can’t afford to lose their mobility or be restricted to be ready to escape predators. Thank you, K. πŸ™‚

      • That sound scary for them. Can you imagine if we humans went through that level of vulnerability once or twice a year?

  3. Your house attracts beautiful birds πŸ˜‰ Happy belated 4th and cheers from an also very humid and hot London.
