I had a bout of insomnia last night. I tried listening to the radio, listening to an audio book, listening to a Dave Ramsey podcast; I tried laying in bed, I tried my comfy chair, I thought about trying the recliner but thought it too much trouble. I finally slept from 12:30 to 1:30 and from 2:30 to 5am. Well, the good thing is that I don't have to go to work and could take a nap from 11am to 1pm. What I
wouldn't give for a good night's sleep!
We had a 50% chance of rain today but it never did rain. The clouds helped keep things relatively cool for August. There were a few mosquitoes this morning when I went out to clean and fill the birdbaths and set out the sunflower seed and peanuts for the birds. We are trying to keep seed in the feeders that the blackbirds can't get into but the cardinals can. I'm not sure just how effective this is. But in the spring and fall we have flocks of blackbirds migrating through and they can clean out a feeder in no time at all.
We have 2-3 hummingbirds at our feeder. They also feed on the bottlebrush bushes of which we probably have 30. I change the sugar water in the feeder every Friday which reminds me that I need to make a fresh batch.
We had a beautiful rainbow this morning in the north:
system and how the Wall Street white-collar criminals are treated but it was just too upsetting to read 412 pages of it.
JMM brought home hamburgers for dinner because I had no energy for cooking.
