Happy Sunday to all. My goodness here we are almost half way through June. This year is about half over - seems crazy.
It sure has been HOT & HUMID here. We did get rain at the first of week. Not getting as much done outside as I would wish. I spend about an hour - less than two - outside each morning, just trying to do stuff. I come in red as a beet and melted. It is way too hot. Hopefully we have a little cool down coming this next week and the humidity is dropping today. YAY
We had a heck of a storm come through last night - they were very spotty - but we got the edge of a fierce one. There was lightening and thunder NON stop for over an hour. It looked like a strobe light going off outdoors and the thunder - oh my. It really sounded kind of scary. It was just a loud rumble that never stopped. Huge winds came through quickly and then rain.
Each new day brings new hope and a new vision.
This morning the sun is shining, the birds are singing, my babies and all the other animals are here and well, it is a BIT cooler. LOVELY!!
- Worked outside as I could. Pulled weeds and more weeds. Working in various areas - avoiding the big bed out back! LOL Oh what a mess it is. Here's hoping I get to work on it this coming week
- Cut a bouquet of roses
- Washed all the summer bedding for kitties
- Planted a few more flowers and onion sets
- My neighbor cut my front grass with his riding mower so I wouldn't have to push mow in the heat. The back did NOT get mowed this week!!
- Made a big batch of hummingbird nectar and clean and refilled feeders. Refrigerated the remainder
- Ran to the store again this week. Did a good buy on canned cat food. It is finally starting to fill the shelves again. I also got Kroger brand olive oil on Manager's Markdown for 3.49/25 oz. bottle. They said they are redoing all the labeling, so marking down current product. Win for me!
- I used the air fryer this week. I give it an A on chicken strips and maybe a C+ on fries. They were pretty darn crispy - I need to adjust my times. I guess this will be a trial and error type thing!
- Ran to the library. Returned a couple books and found nothing new to bring home. I did get a book put on my wish list and they will let me know when it comes in.
- Had to run the AC quite a bit this week. Keeping blinds shut as the sun moved around the house. Looking forward to cooler days this week!
Meals this past week:
Small pizza and salad
Cream cheese/chipped beef spread on toasted bread and topped with veggies
Chicken strips and fries
Chopped steak, corn on cob and lima beans
Made an ice cream float one afternoon as a treat and eating fruit as snacks
Have you been having hot weather? Staying cool? Did you get any deals or bargains this week? Look forward to hearing from you all.
Blessings from my humble little home to yours.
Please take care and praying for health and safety for all.
The Lord will keep you from all evil; He will keep your life. The Lord will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and for ever-more.
Psalm 121: 7-8
Lay your problems and worries in God's hands - He has us all in His protective and loving arms.
