Summer is coming!

An extra day off from school.....Memorial Day. A laid back kind of day. The neighborhood smells like EVERYONE is grilling! Big Daddy grilled some bratwursts and hot dogs today......boy did they smell great!! I think the neighbors on either side of us were cooking ribs all day.....yum!! Now that the weather is so delightful, there will be much more grilling around our house.....portabella mushrooms, hamburgers, shrimp, shish-ka-bob, chicken, fresh vegetables....mmmmmmm. Just bought some sweet corn on the cob today and the tomatoes are starting to ripen.....watermelon....ooooh I just love summer produce!!!

And now, we have 8 more days of school with the students and then summer REALLY begins. Today made me realize that I am READY for summer break. While it will be a somewhat busy summer, at least it will be a nice change of pace.....and more opportunities to head back to the lake.

Random thoughts, yes.......the signs of summer's arrival has addled my brain! What do you love about summer?

Enjoy the here and now......

We'll be right over - that grill, the veggies and the margaritas look amazing!!

We like your advice - "live for the here and now".

Love summer grilling -- any and everything!

Cute dog picture too, but I'm sort of partial to those.

Girl, I think you just made me hungry!
We spent a good deal of time this weekend in the hammock.
I have to say, I love the laziness of summer.

Looks like you had a delicious dinner celebration last Friday!

Allie, Congratulations! You are done with school!! & the Cupcake princess too!! Yipee!

The weather has been unseasonably perfect here, what about in your neck of the woods.

This summer we are going to a visit some friends at Cedar Creek Lake, and to New Orleans around my birthday.

Are you coming to Jefferson soon?
