Heat waves suck. Heat makes me drowsy and bothered, and force me to sleep with icepacks under my pillow and drink way too much Coke to keep my blood pressure from plummeting.
And then there was Belgian weather: the only thing in the world to get me excited about having to endure a heat wave in Portugal.
Above 30 and sunny! *SQUEEAAAL*
I found this little one today, nearly drowning in the buckets from where my dogs drink. After warming up in my hand, it dried its wings and flew again. Usually, I snatch them from one of my dog’s mouths when one of them passes by with a guilty look and I hear a muffled “Chirp! Chirp!”. These usually don’t have a good prognosis, though.
