Speaking of chickens. They are HOT!!! And they are not laying too well. I am not getting as many eggs since we have had this heat. Today I got 5, but the last one collected was a soft egg that was dropped right in the grove. In extreme heat, this is not uncommon.
We continue to get lemons and grapefruit pretty much year around. Some varieties ripening at different times.
I haven't felt like doing much of anything lately. No projects to show. No sewing. No knitting, except for a bunch of dishcloths. Not much crochet. A couple of scarves is all. Tomorrow my Knitty Biddies are meeting and I am looking forward to that. I did read all three of the Shades Of Gray series. Loved them! I went to see the new Meryl Streep movie, Hope Springs. It was good. I enjoyed it. It is not a funny movie. Not at all. But I love Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones! I thought the story was a good one. And the acting was great!
I had a lovely lunch date with my dear friend Sherri today. Sherri and I have been friends since birth. Our parents were all four high school friends, and have remained close all of these years. Sherri and I don't get much of a chance to see one another in these past few years. When we do, we just gab away for hours. Sherri and I talked a little bit about our son Drew moving to Nashville. I haven't talked much about it to anyone. But it does feel good to talk to someone I am close with about it. I love Sherri. She is one of my forever friends!
And as for cooking. None. Not doing any. I haven't cooked a thing in weeks! Well, I did make some killer hot pastrami sliders one night, with a Pioneer Woman Blackberry Cobbler for dessert. But other than that, there is nothing going on in here. No dishes to wash. No pans to scrub. Nice clean, uncooked in, kitchen. Yuck!
Oh, and my laptop cord has a bad break in it, and will now only work if it is twisted awkwardly and tucked underneath the the computer to hold it in this position.
So there you have it! A whole lot of nothin'!!!
I have been enjoying seeing all of the fabulous Fall inspiration going on out there in blogland and on Pinterest. I am looking forward to pulling out my most loved season of colors!!
Til next time.....Be Sweet, as my Nana would say.
