Thank you so much for caring Laurie, it means a lot xxx

This afternoon I got into the kitchen and made some lovely Lemon Cookies, they are so tasty

Also made a Quiche Lorraine for dinner, so a big baking afternoon

There is no way I can forget my mother's anniversary. She died July 4th. I like to think she is watching the fireworks and enjoying them.

Then there's Christmas Eve morning Addie. We rarely did Christmases in FL but that year was the last before Goober and Loverly started kindergarten, so I made a point of us being there. Thank goodness Himself got to see his Mom before she slipped away from us. What a blessing.

I'm sitting in the sunroom listening to the rain fall. The back half of our lot is all wooded - if I don't trim a branch or two before we build our deck someone can fan themselves with the leaves! It won't be long before I'll have to close the windows because the rain is coming in. Unfortunately, this rain means a return of the heat and humidity.

I just pooped myself out and Stirling too. OMG, we are so out of shape. I have to move my composter and some plants, so there is a place to install the compressor for my new air conditioner if it can't go on the wall. I have to move it in any case so the guys have room to work.

Anyhoo, I removed a bit of the finished compost from the bottom and pulled out some weeds, and that was enough to poop me out. Then when I had regained some strength I helped Stirling move a few patio stones, so I will have somewhere to put the plants. Now Stirling is all pooped out and I'm pooped again. I guess I'm going to have to do a little bit every day and hope to have it done by Thursday, 'cause they are coming first thing Friday morning.
