Seems like Summer is passing us by quickly!

But it seems like Summer shouldn't be over yet. I do love the cooler weather, but I'm not ready to give up the homegrown tomatoes. It seemed like Summer drifted on forever when I was a kid! I trimmed the Basil back and made our favorite sandwich, Grilled cheddar cheese sandwich with fresh pesto and home grown tomatoes! My daughter loves them too, so I made them for all of us Wednesday!

There's always a new season and I love the excitement of Fall, but I'm trying to hold on a little longer to Summer's fresh veggies and city markets!  Hope you're all enjoying the weekend!

I've had a hard summer with the heat. I'm still hoping for a few weeks of enjoyable summer here in the South! I also can't believe August is half over!

The heat has taken it's toll all over. I hope there are some days that I can be outside without that misery, too!

Ah, and I'm trying to hold on to winter, summer is just such a punishment here!

Summers are brutal in my area too. Tho I must say, this summer has been amazingly mild. Mid-upper 90's, instead of 100- 110+.

I guess that's why i always couldn't wait for fall, and the cool weather, and best of all, Halloween!

I'm afraid I'm happy August is almost over, and the neighborhood kids are going back to school instead of being loud and obnoxious lol. (I know, I've become a cranky old lady lol).

Yes, now that the heat wave has finally broken here, it seems like summer will just whiz right by! I'm loving all these goodies of yours, especially that Coleman cooler used as a side table!

Thanks guys! Yes, 50's atomic...I can relate. But, just think, if we really WERE cranky old ladies, we wouldn't look forward to Halloween so much!Thanks, Carol. I used to do the whole cabins and cottages 40's thing and went crazy over all the thermoses and coolers. Still love them!
