Keeping cool. That seems to be what is on everybody's mind this summer. I have mentioned earlier that we have had temperatures that broke our all-time high temperature for two successive days a couple of weeks ago. Currently, we are out of the triple digits, thankfully, and we have enjoyed some good rainfall recently.
We have lived in this semi-rural location for eight years. We have a little over an acre, and The Husband has truly enjoyed being able to have a garden the size he had wanted, I hope - 30 x 60 feet. One of the first things I noticed after moving here was the visibility of stars in the sky at night. There was an absence of that "light clutter" from the ground since we were rather out of town. We have actually watched airplanes cross the sky in the evening! We are able to be in the middle of "civilization" with only a 15-minute trip in a couple of directions.
It is on the route that I prefer that I have found one of those "keeping cool" places this summer.

Once home, the utility company is very happy that we are keeping comfortable in the house!:-) The A/C has been active for many, many weeks.
I hope you are able to find a cooling, refreshing spot for yourself during this hot summer season!
It was a good week-end here. We attended a baseball game of a minor league team in the area on Saturday night which we enjoyed. A lightning bolt in the second inning delayed the game for 30 minutes! The players didn't hesitate to leave the field when that happened!
I believe I mentioned telling of some dishes you may have noticed in recent entries. That will be the topic of the next entry. I hope you will return.
I notice that I have added another follower - welcome - and have lost one. Thank you to all of you who are reading along. I really appreciate your comments.
