Happy Summer!

Whew! It's been a while. So sorry about that! I will try to do better in the future.

What can I say? It's been a hot summer already here in S.E. Georgia. We started in the high 90's early June, last of May. My friend Patty that was here in the Spring wants to come back, but wants to wait until Sept. or Oct. when it starts cooling down a little. She can't take the heat, for that matter neither can I!!
The gardening is about over. They are some peas still coming on in the big garden but nothing to speak of. Our little garden behind the house is gone. We got 2 or 3 good pickings of green beans and several yellow squash. The tomatoes just died due to the too hot weather too soon...So, we went and picked tomatoes from the tomatoe farm and we put up 35 quarts in the last two days. We are glad that it is all done.. I should be able to get some fresh corn and freeze that. Not sure yet. Early on, I had lots of lettuce, 3 different kinds and I shared all that. put several bags of cabbage up in the freezer as well. So, basically the gardening is done... We did pick blueberries and froze them as well.
We're having a big Fourth of July cook out on Monday. Several family members will be here and some friends.. We're looking forward to that. Will let you know how that turns out and hopefully post some pictures.
We've not planned any trips this year due to the inflated cost of gas. We 're joining some people from our church for a long bike ride the first weekend in August. That will be fun!! Really looking forward to that. We've been invited to go on a cruise in March, but it's the exact same cruise we took two years ago, same location, same ship and all. So, I think we will decline that one. We may just take another trip to PA and on into Oh in the Spring.. Not sure, still in the planning stages.
Hope you all have a wonderful summer!! Enjoy it to the fullest!
Be blessed everyone!
