There must be something in the attic Dot thinks she needs. She does this every time the ladder is down and she gets in trouble for it b/c she can't get down. We are getting a quote for new insulation on Friday and I'm sure she will be trying to help out when he comes.
Our lovely herbs did not survive the heat. My wonderful husband has watered them every night and they had grown to be so big and fresh. One day they were doing well and the next they looked like this. I didn't know they could be scorched but apparently they can.
Good luck trying beat the heat for these last few days of summer!!
