Peaches are my favorite summer fruit, had to have some when I saw them at the market yesterday. Of course I had to get watermelon and cantaloupe too. Had all three sliced and tossed together for dinner last night along with broccoli & squash from the garden....YUM!
The heat is so much better today after the storm last night.

Baseball 2010

This is where I've been for the past couple of nights. They lost their very last game of the season 12 to 14. It has been super hot and humid all week and how they played is beyond me. I was sweating up a storm and I was just sitting in the bleachers. Gavin would be soaked by the time he got done popping up and down in this position. He gave it his all! I can't believe he's grown up this much and this fast!

Snap around the yard

A quick snap from the yard today. It's to hot to stay out there for very long.

From the Lily Garden

I broke this off yesterday morning when I was putting a hoop around the bunch of them. They were falling over and getting in the way of the shed door. Anyway, this morning, I captured this. Kind of liked the combination!

Kristen's Birthday Card

I worked on this all afternoon. It's not as neat as I would have liked but I wanted to get it done and in the mail by tomorrow. I can not believe I forgot both of you's birthdays! I have got to come up with a better way of keeping track of them. I have this old greeting card program that used to remind me every morning at 8:00 with anyone that had a birthday during the next 7 days. I loved it but it doesn't play well with XP or Vista and as hard as I've searched, I've found nothing that works as good as it did.

Anyway, this is the card I made...the only thing computer generated was the inside message. I hand printed the Happy Birthday on the front and added my logo by hand on the back. My craft room looked like a tornado had hit it. I was going to work up a Father's Day card but didn't get it done. Guess Dad will be getting a store bought one.

I've got one more post before I hit the sack.

I sure hope you had one wonderful birthday!

I am SO Sorry!

I knew there was something I was suppose to be doing the first of June but didn't realize it till yesterday afternoon. Bill mentioned that Kristen's birthday was coming up and as soon as he said it, I knew I was too late for both of you! You and my daughter-in-law share the same birthday and I thought it would be easy for me to remember...nope...didn't remember either one of you!
So, this is a belated greeting but its sent with lots of love. I'll make it up to you later.

Brown eggs & yellow bowl

I have a long way to go before it all looks right but it's a start. I may never feel that it rates a WOW.
These eggs sure taste good.

Some snaps after the Rain

It was still a little windy but I took a few snaps anyway. Have always loved the deep green color that you get after a good rain.
The pink & yellow of this Lantana is so pretty together also have a Sweet Potato vine and blue & white Bacopa planted in the pot.

Don't have many Herbs still planted but this just keeps coming up every year. I do need to take it out and plant something that will shade the roots of the Clematis better. Maybe next year.

A close up view.

Just a close up view of the tiny flower. It's raining cats and dogs here today! Some areas got 7 inches over the weekend and I'd bet we already got over an inch this morning and the wind is blowing extremely hard. I just noticed my patio umbrella was still up but its now blown over. I hope it didn't break the post.

Yummy Yellow

I didn't make it home with the tag to this lovely plant, so I can't tell you the name of it...maybe you know and can tell me. It has the leaves of a rubber plant and these tiny yellow blooms are about the size of the tip of my little finger and the plant is loaded with them. I remember the tag stating that it blooms all summer and I think it is an annual. I have it sitting on my front porch table.

Signs of Summer

I'm taking a template class by Tiffany Tillman at Renee Pearson's.
Took the day off today from cleaning and played around some with one of the templates and came up with this.
My basement is about ¼ of the way cleaned and reorganized but I needed a day to rest. Made a Texas Sheet Cake for Neal earlier today and then just did what I wanted to do. Back at it tomorrow.
