Good afternoon everyone,

I haven't checked in for quite a while but all has been well. It's great to be able to check off a lot of our summer projects. We had our garden shed roof shingled and have painted the shed doors with some outdoor Oops stain from Home Depot. It only cost a dollar and matches the deck boards quite well - just a little darker. But it matches the shingle colour really well so doesn't stand out at all!

Yesterday I didn't feel well and went to bed really early. I hardly ate anything for dinner - just an apple and some ginger tea. Dh and dd fended for themselves. Today I feel much better and was able to get some things accomplished - picked up our travel documents from the travel agency, booked an excursion each in Barcelona, Rome and London (I like knowing what it costs in Canadian dollars - am also allowed to cancel with 24 hours notice) and made a quick shop to Walmart for groceries and puffy envelopes. I also did some never ending watering/deheading of the flowers and have sorted some laundry in preparation for tomorrow. Now I think I should go clean the ensuite bathroom before I have to think about dinner preparation.

Boy is it warm out here in south texas!

It has been over 100 degrees for the last week and looks like that will continue until September!

Today i realized how lucky i am. First i only leave the house in the morning to go walk. Yes, it is warm out there, but not too bad. I come home and even if i go outside around here, it isn't that bad. I have large pecan and oak trees around the yard. Amazing how much they help.

We did go to lunch today. A new place in an old building alongside the highway. No trees or grass around. Wow - very warm even inside. I had left my car at a friends house. When i got off to leave, we chatted for a while - again - not trees around her place. Sheesh very warm. Thank goodness for nice shady trees.
