Over a hundred degrees and 4º humidity. Anytime you look north you can see the fire pumping new smoke out of the hills. Good for drying clothes quickly.

CJ Chenier and the Red Hot Louisiana Band, a dreadlocked poodle, and the opening of our new church made a fun weekend. A little sweet tea on this 95º day tops if off. (thanks to Erin Banks on FB for top photo)

This morning we went out to do some fence repair work and disturbed a little fawn about the size of a fox. She moved herself down along the fence line and disappeared under the brush and the rambling rose.

I saw a doe in the yard a few days ago, by herself, under the big junipers in the front yard and wondered if she was going to give birth. She didn't look pregnant and nothing happened. She did hang around the yard, browsing and eating fallen apples, new growth on my plants, et al.

The mom came back later.

Wow, it's hot outside. Not saying that there are always fires here, but there is a huge billowing cloud of smoke from north of Estes park. Last night we had a great time at the Truck It! food fest at Gateway Park. I think they are beyond needing the city's approval since they've found so many regular venues to serve food. Boulder guvmt can be so picky about what events they allow and what they disapprove (noting the emergency ordinance they will enact to have a Flagstaff finish for the bike race but they don't allow food trucks in the city for little family type festivals.) It's still beautiful here, though. Ran into an old neighbor with a new daughter named Nadia.
