it's been a humdinger day...

boy, if this is a taste of things to come...
it's not going to be a good summer...
we aren't supposed to have this kind of heat under the last of July and August...
it has cooled down to 89 at 9pm...
thunderstorms north...
sat out a bit and watched the lightening...
the wind has died down completely and it's yucky out...
I asked DH why are we sitting out here and paying for the AC to be on in there?
so we are back in for good...
got 3 mum starts in peat pots this morning and they made it through the heat...
so think they will be ok...
keeping plenty of water for the birds...
they were lazy today...
cicadas made it to our neighborhood tonight...
they are so bad south of here, people down there have been complaining on facebook for over a week...
they come out every 13 years...
even though we have a few every year that don't have calendars...
this lone cloud was so pretty reflecting the setting sun this evening...
we were watering...
we waited until the last minute thinking that mower guy might show up...
hopefully he will be here tomorrow...
I kept thinking about NanaDiana's outside bathtub and wishing today that I had one...
my butt would have been in it for sure...

want to go shopping Monday, but if I wake up in the morning feeling really good...
we may just go tomorrow...
I want to stop by my booth and take a few things in...
to fill in the holes...
and fluff...
see if anything else has sold...
and get another 49 cent ice cream cone...
I have so missed the soft serve!
the swimming pool finally opened here today...
so we can get it out there now...
but not for 49 cents...
you know how bargains taste better!

have a great night and a wonderful day tomorrow!

I've been thinking the same thing about the heat. We were over 100 yesterday. That's unheard of in early June! I won't be able to stand it outside in July and August. Well, maybe they'll be cool since the weather is so different this year!! LOL

I think this summer is going to be a hot one. You may have to get quite a few of those ice cream cones this summer.

Hey-come on over-you can put your butt in my bathtub anytime. Of course you might have to share with SCheeks-and you know how she is!

We are finally getting some heat here too. Spring missed us completely this year. It is really weird weather so far in 2011!

Have a Happy Sunday and stay cool! xo Diana

Hey Tete, I wonder how the cicadas know when the 13 years are up and it's time to come out. We had some last summer and their little brown carcases stuck to the old cherry tree. We had a day or two of hotness too but it's over and we are back to seasonable temps. today. Stormed last night. Hope you are having a great weekend. xo Lynn
