    Good afternoon. Still so cool and overcast here, but no more rain. Heat is on it’s way back. UGH
    Sister got her new washer. I tried to help, but we just couldn’t get the hoses loose from the faucet. She’s been on a plumber’s list for a month for some little things, but he says it will still be 3 weeks before he can come. He’s good and trustworthy enough to wait on, but geeze….
    She’s running late trying to get packed, so I loaded up her laundry and took it over. Picked up the pups, too. Now they can just hit the road. I hope they have a really good time. They need/deserve it.
    I got my instructions on making the bottle for the orphan baby calf. They just discovered he is blind. He sure can find that bottle, though. ;) Have to go twice a day. Hope I don’t forget him! Vet said they need to teach lead so they can get him to go where they want him to go. That should be a trip! LOL
    Guess I’d better go let Jo out. I think he’s more interested in chasing squirrels than needing to “go”. Reese has been chewing again, so will have to keep an extra eye on her. I think my weekend will be a long one!
    Brenda, I freeze grapes and then drizzle a bit of Magic Shell over them. They don’t even realize they aren’t getting much chocolate! ;)
    Have a great day, ALL! KB

    Good afternoon. Better late than never, I suppose.
    It is so cool and nice today. I threw the doors and windows open and am totally enjoying it. Just a spit of rain and this was supposed to be our last chance. We received just over a half inch all together, so that is something to make one thankful. The grass is growing like crazy, so I’ll get to use the new mower again soon. Hehehe
    Marcia, it’s their water. It even ate their water softener! I think she got a new one yesterday afternoon, but she said the story was too long until she could tell me in person. Yikes!
    Happy Birthday, Keggy! Sounds like it’s a good one!
    Tigsy, we didn’t get enough to keep me from having to water, either.
    Brenda, I don’t know if she had the extended warranty, but she was almost happy it went out. She has hated it from day one. She had me trying review and research all day yesterday.
    Sherry, good luck with the house sale.
    Robee, how wonderful. Nothing like the snuggling and burying your nose in a sweet baby’s neck to steal a kiss!
    Mary, if you “piddle” around here, that means you are not doing much of anything. LOL
    Margba, the new house sounds nice and it will be fun to be out planting and meeting the neighbors.
    Fred, I hate when I plant one thing and get another! I hope the taste good!
    Stewart, glad to hear there is progress on the car. Will need photo of you tooling around in it!
    Dave, we will be glad to take any left over rain you don’t need.

    Morning ALL. We’ve got a little drizzle again this a.m. Happy for that.
    My sister’s washer gave up the ghost, so she came over last nite to use mine. Never seen anybody go thru so many new washers. This was a 2011, top of the line Maytag!
    Couldn’t get inspection yesterday, so have an appt. at 9. Better get my hinny in gear or I’ll be late!
    Have a great day, ALL! KB

    Good morning. So nice and cool and cloudy this morning. Makes ya wanna go…ahhhh. Not much luck with rain today, but maybe tonight, so they say.?.
    Had planned to go clean at my sister’s, but phone calls and such were making me late and I hate to hurry these days, so I’ll just rattle around here.
    Need to get down and get my truck inspected. Nothing like leaving it till the last minute. ;)
    Have a great day, ALL! KB

    Good morning. Today is supposed to be 100 PLUS. Dreading it, but there’s supposed to be a “cold front” coming tomorrow to cool us off for a few days and maybe bring some rain. Fingers and toes crossed!
    Wesley has moved on to his other grandma’s, so that fun is over. Same song here…”not much going on”.
    Wishing all a lovely Lord’s Day! KB

    Good morning. I’m not much on the ball this a.m. Gonna be stifling today….what else, right? LOL
    Super busy day yesterday, but a great one. Wesley was here. ;)
    Already needing to mow again, but mower guy hasn’t shown up yet. Guess if worse comes to worse, I can mow around the new one with the old one. LOL
    Brenda, aren’t they funny after they get a bath?! I would put a beach towel down and get in the shower. Bud would walk right in, get his scrubbing and then step out and sit down on his towel. I’d do my best to rub the water out of his ears and wrap him up. He’d sit there until I finished my shower and started to get out, then he’d move out of my way. No dripping or shaking water everywhere. I sure do miss him and his “smart-ness”.
    I am about 5 hrs. from Red and almost that far from San Angelo, where Dave picked up his BIL. Seems like not much is just next door in Texas. :)
    Tigsy, I bet the bouquets are lovely.
    Sherry, yum on the tomatoes. And the first picking of everything is just the best!
    Robee, congrats on the new addition! Just nothing better than a new baby in the family!
    Mary, enjoy the party and the swim.
    Marcia, sounds like the wedding planning is rolling right along. Prayers for safe travels for Sarah! Enjoy your gardening.
    Have a great day, ALL! KB

    Good morning. Supposed to be over 100º by Sun. Yep, July is here and August is usually worse. UGH
    Stewart, goo to see you and glad things are going well.
    Marcia, arms are finally, finally doing good. Even mowing didn’t get them stirred up! Yeah! I know it’s a lot of work and a lot on your mind, but planning a wedding is still fun. However, the long distance thing would certainly make more challenges.
    Keggy, I took care of my mom. Tried having someone come in, but after a very few days, she called me at work to tell me she had fired her. It’s a “hard row to hoe”.
    Brenda, I was so happy the boys did some weed eating while they were here. I still have the front to do, though. I sure understand being so pooped you have to rest before you have energy for a shower. ;) How is the ankle?
    Sherry, glad it’s cooled off for you. I know you probably aren’t too excited about more rain.
    Red, where are you in Texas? I’m between Dallas and Wichita Falls.
    Dave, glad your trip went well.
    Tigsy, I think you are right. Now if I could figure out a Thanksgiving stir fry, life would sure be easier! LOL
    Robee, how is the curb coming? I bet they showed back up to work as soon as you got home. ;) Usually, happens that way around here.
    Mary, your 80º would feel like a norther here right now! LOL
    Fred, you’re always so busy it makes my head swim. :)
    Alberta, hope you enjoyed your visit with the girls.
    My list for the day is long. I’d better get at it.
    Have a great day, ALL! KB

    Good morning. Heat still awful, but got the yard mowed. Lance and Haden did some “honey do’s” for me before they left. Yeah! Just enjoyed them so much. Note to self: might be time to get a bigger pan. I made stir fry in the big chicken fryer skillet and there wasn’t a crumb left. Then they polished off half an apple pie and 2/3 of a double batch brownies before they left. I think the 9 yr. old at more than my teenager! LOL It was such a great family day. Sad to have them leave.
    I’m still pooped, so I see a nap in my future.
    Have a great day, ALL! KB

    Good morning. This heat is just mean! And it’s going up every day this week!
    Party was fun last night. Super time with the family. Kids will be her soon to spend the last of their time with me before they have to move on to her side working their way back home. Haden is sooo tall, but he’ll be a freshman and his dad is over 6′, so I guess there’s no way around it.
    No time to really visit now. I’ll be back after they leave…if I don’t opt for a nap instead. Hehehe
    Have a great day all! KB

    God and all his wonders! Gorgeous pic, Sherry. Thanks for sharing.
    Fred, sounds like a yummy birthday! Too bad you couldn’t get out for a ride around. Hope you get your phone fixed soon. What is difference in red/blue velvet cake…other than the obvious? Inquiring minds….(or is that nosy?, LOL)….want to know.
    Yep, I’m taking another break. Using the excuse of waiting on the floor to dry, but of course, there are many other things/places I could be working on while I wait. ;)
