Hello, friends. Can you believe it is the end of June already? The year is half over already. But it is Summer! And I am enjoying every minute.
Today was day 2 of our heat wave. Temperatures got up to 98*F (37*C). It is 11:00 p.m. and the temperature is 88*F (31*C). This weather is predicted to last for at least the next 7 days and perhaps beyond that.
So it was with fear and trepidation that I ventured out to Rite Aid this afternoon. When I got into the car the temperature was 106*F (41*C). But I needed cards for two ladies in church whose birthdays are tomorrow (yes, the same day) and a few other things. But of course I found something else. In the 50% off section (all summer things) I found a string of solar lights in the shape of butterflies. Now if you know me, you know I adore butterflies. So I had to get them.
When I got home I took it out of the box, read the directions, put it together, and took it to the back yard. I found a sunny spot to put the solar panel. I wasn't sure the line would reach the top of the fence, but it did. I was able to wind them around the top of the fence and leave them there for the evening.
Tonight I looked out of the kitchen window and saw a delightful sight. The little butterflies were all glowing.
I went outside and took a couple of pictures of them. They are so pretty.
