So hot

We have been so cold this spring we thought summer would never come. It came today. It's really hot. I didn't want to cook, so I made a big salad and Ray picked up pulled pork sandwiches from the barbeque stand down the highway. It's been there a few months and we pass this big old smoker sitting next to the highway on our way back and forth from the old to the new house. The sandwiches are huge and really good.

Emily, Cayo and Sofia came over and we sat out in the yard before dinner, with margueritas, and watched Sofia play in the sprinkler.

She has developed a fearlessness that is both a pleasure to behold and a little scary. You really have to keep an eye on her. She's pretty sure she can do most anything. I took a dozen pictures of her running through the water. This is the only one that is not a pink blur.

Our first strawberry crop of the season. We had strawberry shortcake for dessert. I baked the biscuity shortcake yesterday before it got so hot.

Bet you can guess who loves strawberry shortcake.

We've been watching this mother robin sitting on her nest on the top of one of the posts on our front porch. She seldom leaves the nest and doesn't seem to pay much attention to us coming and going.

We lowered the price on our house this week and have had a few more lookers. I think the robin is a talisman. She's our lucky robin and says, "this is a good place to build your nest and raise your family."


  1. Playing in the sprinkler and drinking margueritas on the lawn -- it doesn't get much better than that!

  2. Oh how happy I am to see that little darling. She just brightens the day.

    Sorry you had to lower the price but hopefully it will bring good results. Missed you & tell Del that I love her blog. I finally had some time to peruse-what talented friends you have! Talk to you soon-I'm buried in laundry...Bah.
