Lemonade? No way! When life gives you lemons…make Lemon Meringue Pie. 🙂 Life hasn’t really dealt me any lemons, but I was in the mood for a Lemon Meringue Pie-a perfect summer time treat. Thank goodness for air conditioning to cool the place back down after using the oven.
In fact, after the pie came out of the oven I stepped outside for a few minutes for a breath of fresh air and was overwhelmed by the 400 degree oven-like heat. It just seemed extra hot out there today. Just as I was ready to turn around and come in, a couple of vultures landed by the pond, so I grabbed my camera to see if I could get any good shots. They are very ‘flighty’ if you get too close, but I was able to zoom in and see this one preening, pulling something out of his feathers.
This one was less energetic and content to sit next to the bush, though it doesn’t look like it bothered him that there was no shade.
It didn’t take me long to want to head back indoors out of the heat but I was side tracked by this sweet little kitty cat that someone abandoned. I can tell it’s abandoned because it’s very friendly and cuddly. But what to do? I can’t adopt it due to allergies and I don’t think it should have to fend for itself. Though, I saw it catch and eat a lizard yesterday.
A neighbor girl is trying to convince her dad to take it in…but if she can’t, then what?
Now that I think about it…an icy, cold glass of lemonade sounds pretty good, too!
