WE'RE HAVING A HEAT WAVE~

The lazy, hazy days of summer have set in...today is a day for a tall glass of lemonade and cold watermelon slices... along the coast the southerly wind blows, the smell of salt is in the air...a gull soars into billowy clouds...

tourist are now in abundance...shopping and seafood being their main focus... the vast majority of "snowbirds" have returned to their cottages and summer homes, opened now and readied for summer enjoyment...as this day comes to an close, we cast open our windows allowing the cool evening breeze to flow throughout the house, dispersing the days stale air...

at dusk we hurry to our gardens which are found in dire need of a cool drink, we find them hot and thirsty from the day long heat...




the girls take the heat in stride...dirt baths and fresh water keep everyone's spirits happy...

and the grand finale to my day... an evening stroll down our bumpy dirt driveway accompanied by my best fella...Travis Lloyd...

works like a charm everytime...Life is good...Sweet dreams...

I just love his dark hair. He is such a beautiful little boy. I just love that picture of him sleeping. What a blessing.
I am so glad you are having some warm weather and not rain.
We are having lots of humidity and heat. We don't get this very often but gosh it is hot.
The garden likes it and the weeds like it better.
Have a wonderful weekend Julie.

They are saying it's the worst drought here in the midwest in 10 years. I'm out watering every morning. Gotta love Summer! Gorgeous photos especially that little sleeping baby doll! :)

Lucky, lucky grandma. What a gorgeous boy. Everything else must pale in comparison to this new joy. I can almost smell the baby powder, just looking at his picture. So hoping I get there someday...
