Happy Sunday everyone! Hope you’re all doing well. This top picture is of my favorite pot of flowers again. These are called wave petunias and we have about 5 pots of them but this one is my favorite because of the white flowers in it. They have just been pouring out of the basket (you can click on the pics for enlarged views). That is my garden back there too, it’s been doing pretty good. I’ve had a few good dishes full of peas and one dinner of beans so far – Yummo!
It was a quiet weekend here except for storms again last night. It wasn’t bad in my area but in a town not far from me where they were having a yearly concert a horrible wind went through with thunder, lightning and hail and it tore up the tents and the stage collapsed. A lot of devastation and a lot of people hurt. Other than the winters being bad here, we do get an awful lot of bad and damaging storms during the summer. We’ve been lucky in our area. It seems the really bad storm seems to pass over us and hit another part of the city.
Last week was a slow one. We had a family member pass away so things were really quiet. I did get a lot of reading done though. I’ll have my July update up some time this week. I sure hope August will be just as good. I’d like to tackle a few books from my challenges this month. I just finished Hugh and Bess by Susan Higginbotham and thoroughly enjoyed it. I’ll have my review up tomorrow. She became a favorite author of mine after reading The Traitor’s Wife and she didn’t disappoint me with this one either. Today I’m starting Mr. Darcy, Vampyre and I’m looking forward to it. It will also count towards the Everything Austen Challenge. Yaaaaaaaaaaaaay!
And of course I have some pictures to share although Buddy was none to happy to have pictures done yesterday. He was quite temperamental actually and even bribing him with treats wasn’t working as well as usual. I think he was just hot and cranky like the rest of us. Anyhow this first one is his favorite spot to sprawl out on the back step when it’s hot. Our back step is in the shade most of the day so the cement stays nice and cool. The second picture is of yours truly and Buddy and as you can plainly see he was tired of the whole posing routine and just wanted to get away from me by then. lololol.
So, what are you all up to today? Doing anything exciting or just hanging around enjoying summer, your family or maybe getting some reading done like me. Whatever it is I hope you’re having a good day!
