100 DEGREES ! ! !

My word! It keeps getting hotter and hotter and hotter! Its 5:45pm and the thermometer reads 100 degrees in the shade!
This afternoon I finally turned the cool air on in the house and am trying to keep hydrated with refridgerated watermelon and iced tea!
I've refilled the water cooler for the birds twice today to keep it cool for them. They are still coming to the feeders and eating in the cherry tree and from the seed heads of the weeds.
On my walk yesterday, I noticed that the trees along the river are fairly vibrating with bird songs because they are all hanging out there where its cooler - as are a lot of people!
Birds are still nesting - I saw a two house finch couples pulling cotton from the cotton ball this morning. At this rate, I might be worried about the eggs getting too hot!
