Living in Pa. but feeling like Hawaii. Watch what you wish for but actually I love it as long as my air conditioner keeps plugging away. The heat is stressing it. I'm waiting for my part to arrive UPS. Sears said they will come out the next day to fix everything.
Joey and I have been in the pool for two days now. Love it to death even though it's small. I took a picture of my pond which is coming around but excuse the weeds. It was way too hot for weed whacking today. 90's and not a cloud in the sky.
It is so hard to take digital pictures in the sun. You just have to aim and hope you get a good shot. Actually, Joey did tell me afterwards, you can look through the view finder thingie in the sun. Anyway, I cut part of the pond off. I live in a rural area but our neighbors are close on either side. The great thing is the 1/2 acre in the back. Luckily, I have super neighbors on both sides. The newest ones are 20. They graduated with Megan and are getting married in August. Their parents helped them get the house. They are gutting it and working super hard. Really nice kids.
Back to the pond, all my pond ornaments bit the dust. I started out when I moved with an aquatic theme. Then I switched to gnomes (LOL...Shelly, Roxymama "loves" gnomes.) I think I'm leaving it plain with just my hummingbird wind chimes. I have my eye on a statue of two children in a radio flyer wagon at Wally World that is being lowered in price daily. I'm going to stick that in my garden by the pond.
Megan just got home from work so I gotta run. She wants to go online. Poor thing missed the beautiful sun today. Hope she gets some pool time this week.
Dinner is thick boneless pork chops that I grilled, steamed cauliflower, and home fried potatoes. Sheesh...I'm hungry.
