Is Summer here already??????





It has been quite hot here the last few days. I haven't turned on the A/C yet, but have kept the fans running! Monday the Temperature was 100 degrees and today its supposed to be in the 90's!

We have been watering the plants either in the early morning or late evening and giving them a good soaking so they don't shrivel up in this weather. My marigolds that I planted from seed are blooming now, they look so pretty and cheerful!

We are planning on getting together with our dear friends' (family to us) on Sunday for Father's Day! Not sure if they are coming here or if we are going to their home, but in either case, the time will be filled with lots of fun, laughter and making of more memories!

I have been busy with the daily tasks and routines here in the home, de-cluttering, cleaning and rearranging. Something always needs tending to, and kept up and running. I enjoy the early mornings when I wake and take some coffee, toasted English Muffin bread with Lemon Curd, my Bible and head out to the patio and enjoy the beginning of the day. It is amazing to me the peace that always greets me there. What a wonderful way to start each day!!!

I have posted some random pictures of family happenings..Grandson Nicholas making Smoothies with his Aunt Amie, my new rug for the family room, my son Stephen and his girlfriend Jackie, blowing bubbles on the patio last weekend. Hope you enjoy looking at them!

Make time to pamper yourself today in some little way, to recharge your spirit and rest your soul. From a soothing cup of hot tea, arranging a some bouquet of flowers from your yard for your bedside table, some lovely scented lotion to rub on your tired feet to preparing a simple supper of a salad with and some crusty French bread taken on your patio with some candles this evening. Whatever you choose to do to pamper yourself...enjoy and relish the time!!! Abundant blessings to you and yours...

That sounds pretty hot. We have our air on thanks to our daughter. She begged dad to turn it on and he indulged her. Thank goodness...I can get cranky when I'm hot!
