Summer has come to Kansas. It is hot and the wind is blowing. Today was 94* with a good, gusty strong hot wind blowing. We might be whining for some rain pretty soon. For now I'm okay with the weather.
AS I PONDER....
I have company here this week. My brother from Louisiana came on Tuesday. He'll be here another week. We have gotten caught up on a lot and he's out visiting other family and friends.
I learned all about how a A/C unit needs frequent cleaning when you live around a lot of big cottonwood trees. That was the reason for it not working last week. It had tripped the breaker a bit so the fan wouldn't come on. I watched closely as the workman cleaned it out and put it back together again. I think I can keep up with it myself and only need to have the workman come out once in awhile. Save a lot of money that way. And this old cooler works better than it has for a bit.
WHAT I'M READING....
I have done very little reading this week. I am still working my way to the end of Imagine Me Gone. I need to write up my review of I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings. And then I want to start on The Second Mrs. Hockaday. What are you guys reading now. Any really good books you can recommend?
What's happening in the kitchen...
Monday...Steaks, Baked potatoes, broccoli
Tuesday...Chicken Cordon Blue, mashed taters
Thursday...Biscuits and Gravy
Saturday...time will tell
A QUOTE I WANT TO SHARE...
I have discovered bullet journals. So I'm learning all I can about them. I will see if I want to change from my Happy Planner to a Bullet Journal. I kind of like the simplicity of them. And they leave a little room for creativity.
A peek into my week...
Harley is getting a lot of hours at McDonald's right now so that means granny does a lot of to and from trips. On Monday she starts helping with the kids swimming lessons again. She is going to be working early mornings at McDonald's and evenings at the pool. Just two weeks away from the mission trip to Florida. Then we will be starting to think about back to school time. How can time be passing by so fast?
What I'm hoping for...
I am hoping to get the front grass mowed in the next day or so. Harley has already done the back. So I'd best hurry or hers will need done again.
What's going on in your lives? How are you spending the summer?
