I love summer. Most of all I love the kids being out of school, the ability to spend a lot of time outdoors, the flowers, the smells...I really love summer. This summer is testing me though. It has been so hot! This is just not normal for Oregon, and I know I have complained about this already, but this is just nuts.
The sun does look pretty shining through my Ball jars--but I wish Mother Nature would just turn down the heat a bit.
At 11pm at night for it to still be this hot in the house is just crazy!
We have fans going everywhere and are drinking gallons of ice water--but this kind of heat is just not fun.
The kids put together their money and bought a pool which I decided they could get because I gave up trying to keep the back yard grass alive anyway.
It was a good purchase. Everybody has been enjoying it--even Gage who hates the sun.
When Jaxon is visiting he doesn't want to get out!
Of course, Janae's dogs want in on the action.

Fez likes to look out the window and see what is going on in the pool.
I have been trying to keep the flowers watered...and they are hanging in there.
I put ice cubes in my vases to keep my cut flowers from wilting.
I drink an iced mocha to keep me from wilting!
I have been enjoying the cucumbers from our garden and have made several delicious cucumber salads.
So refreshing on hot summer days!
I sold my little telephone table to a lady who is buying it for her Mother's 60th birthday.
That made my heart happy :) It reminded me of something that Janae would do for me!
We have been having a fun summer...and I look forward to another few weeks before the kids have to go back to school.
How is your summer going? If anyone has any cool breezes to send our way...please do!
Thanks for visiting!
