heat wAaAaAaAaAve...

It's hot and hazy...
But we ain't lazy!!

It's been between 95 and 105 degrees this week,
but that doesn't slow us down (too much)!!
We've been walking, "strolling," ballin', 
swimming, and buying local fares...
and yeah...takin' pics!! ;)
This has been my view almost every morning...
Beth and I have been taking the kids on power-walks around town.
We sweat and they "stroll." 
(get it?? their strollers) :) :) :)

We've been swimming and swinging...
and learning to blow bubbles. :)

Today we explored Klem's Farmers' Market
held by the department store Beth works for.
We had fun, even though it was a scorcher.
I got some beautiful vegetables...
I can't wait to start preparing, cooking, and EATING!! 
I also got some home-made pesto...
makes this awesome pesto.  I'm so excited to start creating new dishes with it. :)
I bought my own fresh basil, too.
(hopefully, my black thumb and I can keep it alive...)
Well, I hope everyone can...
and beat the heat!!

~Wipe the sweat off your brow and think about 

I love this SwEeEeEeEet Summer heat. :) :) :)


  1. You can see the humidity in that first pic of phlox! You can "cut it with a knife" as GG would say!
    For supper last night I made chicken sandwiches on the whole wheat bread I got at the farmer's market and added fresh garden tomatoes! Yummers!
    Good luck with the basil..."But can you grow it in the house?!"
    Love you!

  2. I love Farmer's Markets!
    I feel like I'm walking around in a foreign country or something (I'm really into pretending).

    Ahhhh, the good old summertime!
