Sun and Wind

As you can tell, summer has struck already.  The neighbors' air conditioners have already been busy humming.  It's been so hot in the 90s hot.  

I don't tolerate heat too well.  I usually like lounging on the patio. But, when it gets hot, I will actually ask to go in after just a few minutes of sunshine.  But I do look cool in my summer shades.

Our roses have all gone crazy with blooms.  The other day, all the bushed were bent over and getting saggy because so many bloomed at once.

The cool thing is that we have already seen several ladybugs visiting our beautiful roses.

But, this beauty did not last long.  

We have had some really bad winds the last couple of days.  This is what we woke up to Thursday morning.  Mother Nature pruned our roses for us (although they weren't quite ready to be pruned).  I don't know if you guys know this, but we get super strong winds here.  Out here, huge trees will topple and semi-trucks can be found on their sides along the freeway.  When Mom was little, the wind even blew in a bay window at her home.  Luckily, since I am so low to the ground, I don't get blown away and end up like Toto.

Please don't forget to vote for KELSEY in the Baxter Boo photo contest.  You only need to vote once.  Make sure you submit your vote at the bottom of the voting page to make your vote count (you can opt out of their emails...they just want to make sure you only vote once for Kelsey).  A big thanks to Finn and Charley, What Remains Now, Goose, Max (Max also shared on FB!), and everyone else who has voted for Kelsey already.  We really appreciate your support.
I am not sure how much longer the contest runs...maybe a couple more days?


  1. Have a super Saturday and stay cool and away from the wind. You don't want to be visiting the yellow brick road.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. Wow, 90! Stay cool and get as much AC as you can. Those roses were just beautiful while they lasted!

  3. Wow, that's some scary winds! Like us here during Hurricanes though! Wow! Ok, I LOVE Kelsey in her cool shades!! That is the BOMB!!! What a little star she is!! Gosh we hope she wins!!!!Paws crossed big time!!

  4. I am not a fan of the 90's or the mid to high 80's. I'm a 60's-70's girl. Kelsey, you look so stylish in your shades. I don't blame you for wanting to go in.
