Happy July to all. I hope y’all had a wonderful and safe 4th celebrations. We had a fairly quiet one. We sat out in the screened in porch and watch the neighbors fireworks. LOL!  By 10 pm we were peacefully in bed asleep. The wonderful thing about where we live is the peace and quiet at night.

But I think it will be best for all of us for many...

Is it hot enough for you ?!?!?!? It seems that July has apologized this morning, for being so brutal, with the brief rain shower. It’s been a weird year for weather. Unusual winter and spring and now a record hot summer. I hope y’all are staying cool. At home, we built a nice screened in porch to enjoy, but it’s been too HOT to use it. We are hoping for a cool down soon.   It’s business as usual around here at the Cottage. This summer has been too hot to be very exciting. The long arm machine is running...
