the summer so far

Summer update, without photos:

We’ve had a heat wave, but I think it’s over.  We had a break from the heat, but then again…it might be back.  I am not complaining.  I like it.

Because this was only five months ago and I remember it!!!

I will not complain about warm summer weather!!!

I planted two tomato plants, 4 basil plants, parsley and mint in my garden pots.

My shoulder is still “frozen” but I have been swimming a few times and my shoulder likes swimming.

I have made a peach pie.   Due to the heat wave, the peaches have arrived early this summer.  I have been to the Peach Man three Thursdays in a row and have bought 2 cases of apricots and 4 (or was it 5??) cases of peaches.

The Bachelorette has been boring and unwatchable.  My French Friend Janou and I have resorted to swigging refreshing alcoholic beverages every Monday night.  We also start watching the show 45 minutes after it begins so we can speed through the commercials and the boring bits.

There are a lot of boring bits.

Banjo Man did not find a banjo to purchase while on the road so we have spent five hundred and twenty seven hours shopping online and/or talking about what he should do.

Today I took the Banjo Bull by the horns and ordered a tenor banjo from Amazon.  It was under budget, will arrive in two days and can be returned if he decides it clashes with his sensitive ears.

There comes a time when you just have to make a decision and hope for the best, right?

I have been cooking and canning and freezing–all of those good things–and the freezer is filled with yummy meals and bags upon bags of sliced peaches ready to be turned into pies and cobblers.

If I had a bumper sticker, it would say:  PEACH PIE FOR LIFE!!

Because spending the rest of my life eating peaches seems like a very good idea.

Happy summer, everyone!  I do have lots of pictures to post, but not a lot of time to upload, download, upload and upload again…..and it’s quite a process.

Book reviews comin’, too.  An injured bald eagle.  Plus pictures of jam!

    You only have to wait 25 minutes before starting to watch a show you are taping. You will end at the real ending or just after it. I learned that by taping and watching Oprah most days. 🙂

    Your boys are arguing over who gets the peach pies and cobblers! 🙂 See you soon! Woo Hoo!
