How was your weekend? Did you have a nice 4th of July? Our weather was wonderful. The humidity broke overnight on Sunday so that Monday was just a pleasant day. I walked after lunch and it did get warm, but not like it had felt at the end of last week. And last night it almost felt chilly! Our local fireworks went off as usual (we can see some of them from our backyard) and by 10 p.m. it was pretty quiet. Luckily Mabel seemed none the worse from the noise of the fireworks.
It's a little overcast here today and I think we will have rain by the afternoon. I will probably skip walking today as we want to do a little grocery shopping this morning. I suppose I should also consider doing a bit of work - LOL.
Anyway, here it is Tuesday and the first in July. Time for a TNT update. The "Simply Live" sampler is coming along nicely.
I sure am enjoying all the different colors in this one (I got a little tired of red and green while stitching the A&E Sampler).
As for garden news, we have one large tomato that is nearing time to be picked!! It is completely orange and beginning to turn red. The jalapenos have formed and some are green and some are red. Time to pick them. Beets are poking up through the soil, so they should be picked (I need to remember to look at the greens to see if they are useable). And yesterday I picked some of our blueberries:
A few that were not quite ripe fell into my hand as I picked, but overall they look lovely. Last year we only had a few berries all summer; this year the bush is loaded! And figs are beginning to form! Rob and Eva came over with summer squash from their garden:
I will be cooking up one of these to go with our dinner tonight! Despite the lack of rain (once again no lawn mowing this week!!), the garden does seem to be thriving.
Well, that's a wrap for me. Wishing you all a wonderful Tuesday - enjoy!
