Far Guy says that half the summer is over when we get past the 4th of July. I suppose that is true for people and kids that go back to school in mid August.
Our weather has been wonderful the past few days, in the 70's during the day and cools off into the 50's at night.
I can carve wood, I tried one of the Christmas ornaments yesterday. My thumb was/is sore but I can do it. Not sure how much I can help with the carving this year. So I went off on my lawn tractor to kill poison ivy...great entertainment! I was so thankful not to see the skunk family that she who sees robins first saw in her driveway. The poison ivy is very tall this year...some of it is three feet tall.
Town is a mess...tourists all over the place. One grocery store was out of mustard, peanut butter and soy sauce. People are just nuts with their aggressive driving...a motorcycle passed us on a curve and I was going the speed limit.
So far the lake people are quiet with fireworks. Usually we hear fireworks every night the week before the 4th and the week after the 4th. Maybe the skeeters are making life miserable for them too!
I made potato salad yesterday one of my favorite summer foods. Far Guy has not lost his cooking mojo...he made spaghetti:)
Bunting over at my baby brother and his bride's home. They celebrated 44 years of marriage this week.
