"Sunny and warm" is what the weather forecast said and yes, it has been very sunny and with highs of 95F on both Wednesday and Thursday, it has been warm.
Yesterday, Wednesday, was when work began on neighbor T's roof that she is having replaced. The workers arrived at 7:00 a.m., but, I only heard them when they were up on the roof, removing the old asphalt shingles that are used on the roofs here. They were using some sort of scrapers to loosen the shingles. Scrape, scrape, scrape...T's house is right next to my bedroom. I took a quick peek and saw that there were at least 5 workmen up on the roof. They finished their work around 3:00 p.m. Earlier in the day, there had been some stray debris that had fallen on my driveway (T's daughter K had already apologized in advance for that and I had assured her that it was OK), but, the workers cleaned up everything before they left.
Wednesday was also M's day to tend to the garden. He watered the garden and started trimming back the overgrown osteospermum in the front. He also brought me a rooted pineapple top that he had potted up, but, I forgot to take a picture of it! I served him some of the yogurt I made, topped with the peach topping, and he liked the yogurt. I offered him some to take home, but, he had to do another garden after mine and didn't want to have the yogurt sitting in his truck in the afternoon heat. He asked if I can keep it until Friday, when my garden is the last garden of the day.
Later in the evening, I picked more broccoli side shoots (tiny florets) and two small zucchini that were already starting to yellow from the sun:
