Welcome to my blog! My name is Esther and I'm so happy you are here. I'm an avid nature photographer and a daydreaming thinker. My posts revolve around photos of nature's beauty, homeschooling adventures with my 2 kids, sporadic reflections on my child's heart condition, Bible reading reflections, gardening feats, and other mish mash things. Hopefully you'll leave encouraged, pensive, or smiling at the simple things of life. Thank you for stopping by and hope you'll find some interesting posts to read!

      1. Okay, the shopping centers have professional gardeners and sprinkler systems, so no wonder. I had not heard the exact temp of 107 degrees for today, but did hear that it will be the hottest day ever for California. I hope it did not tax your energy grid too much. On the early news today, I heard that California was trying to see if power sources could be borrowed from other states for today’s heat wave and the rest of the week under this heat dome. That is horrible Esther … I don’t know what people do who must work outside.

      2. Our temps were out of control this week. The hottest day of the week was 110! The heat was unbearable and just burning hot on your skin when we walked outside. I knew it was too hot when Id wake up from the heat. When the temperature dropped to 99 we were thankful. lol
        Other counties in the bay area had their power cut but thankfully we were spared. Cold faucet water was warm too. And you won’t believe it…today is 85 degrees and humid.
        I don’t know how outside workers managed during the worst of the heat wave. Maybe they worked earlier in the day or put off work until the worst heat ended.

      3. Oh that is terrible Esther. Like I said, the news was full of the Queen’s death and some political things, which pushed your heat wave to the back burner, except for the Mosquito Fire. I cannot imagine 110 degrees – I think the most we had a few years ago was 101 and that was bad enough. Luckily you did not lose your power. I hope you are done for the Summer with the heat. We are ramping up the end of the week again. I don’t know how the outside workers do it here, let alone there.

      4. It was a first for us too. We’re more accustomed to 100 to 103 weather in Septembers, but 110 was kind of extreme! Let me tell you, without the air conditioner, we were in bad moods. The thought of us losing power was nerve wracking since all the food would go bad right away and we rely on power for so much of our daily activities.
        I hope it’s not so bad for you and you have a smooth transition to autumn. Can you believe the leaves will fall soon? It seems so quick how we were talking about flowers blooming for spring.

      5. That’s horribly high temps – I hope you are done with that high heat for the year now. We have lots of Poplar leaves on the perimeter path at the Park, but other trees are losing leaves too due to the near drought-like conditions in June and July. As much as I whined about our heat and humidity, the later rising time for the sun and this morning I wore a sweater with long sleeves, I realize Fall is definitely on the way.

      6. There’s some rain in the forecast for this Sunday! We get so many false predictions that I’m not getting excited until I actually see rain. Last Sunday we got the lightest drizzle…if you can even call it that. You’d laugh at it, considering you get thunderstorms.
        Hoping for good and pleasant weather for all of us!

      7. I am behind here responding to comments and apologize for that Esther … are you near where they were having mudslides? I heard that and thought “is there no end to what poor California must endure?”

      8. Linda, no worries! I know you are reading and commenting when you have time, which is not enough, right?!
        No mudslides. Weather has turned cooler considerably. We’re having a tumultuous weather year.
        Btw, I am so late on replying on so many things!! Oh dear, but I know you understand. šŸ˜€

      9. We need to have more hours in our day Esther – that is all there is to it. Good for no mudslides – whew! Cooler is good – we have 85 again today and through Wednesday, then cooler. I get behind in e-mail correspondence as well. A friend wrote a long e-mail to me a few months ago – I keep saying “I haven’t forgotten.”
