....a freshly baked blueberry pie for celebrating the Fourth of July!  

Just out of the oven!  

Sending wishes for a happy holiday week-end to all!

Out our front door....

Looking out our front door we see this....

Rain!  Glorious rain!  

June was a very dry month, and we have a deficit in our average rainfall for the year.  That's why it is good to see the rain.  

Hoping all is well with you!  We've been away for a bit and had a very slight Internet signal, so I've not been around to check on you in quite awhile.

Have a really good Thursday!

It was quite a serenade from the mockingbird earlier while I was picking his blueberries.��

Attempt at creativity....

It appears that my attempt to be creative with the last post just didn't go well.:-(  I had found the cutest little emoticons to go along with the theme for our women's chorus program - the sun, the moon, and the stars!  Also, there were some music notes and symbols.  At any rate, I had hoped to create a little more interest by including them, so there is more for me to learn about how to put them on the blog!

It's Friday, and the week-end is eminent!  Have a great one!

Touring season.... well-underway!  The women's chorus has performed six times, with three more scheduled!  If you see a group of ladies in this attire -

....just ask them to sing for you! ����. �� �� �� We are all about the sun, moon, and stars for this summer program!

A record....

I believe it is official.  A new record high temperature for our area was set on Monday - 97 degrees! Summer must really be here!

Here is another good recipe for a summer day.

It also made the trip to the church covered-dish luncheon, and there were some leftovers to bring back home.  

It is a Weight Watchers recipe, and we have enjoyed it several times for the past few years.

Rather than the capellini, I substituted rice "spaghetti" pasta with no real difference in the flavor of the dish.

It could be another record-setting day today, so once again, staying cool and keeping hydrated are in order!
