Where I muse about just about everything...
From the weather in Texas, to my kids, pets, travel and friendships. Basically, about life. And oh yeah, about my Coquette Bath & Home™ products, too.
Ok, it is hot out there. Really hot, like 'you probably could fry an egg on the sidewalk hot, but if not, the hood of my black Jeep probably would work'...
don't try it, but you get the idea! I hate heat. I know, I know...many people do. But I just don't. If you live in the southland (anything in the old Confederate states region for sure) summer is just a time to endure. The only reasonable time to be outside is during the early morning or late afternoon/evening. The morning really is best, though you can't exactly get out the lawnmower or edger for fear of waking the neighbors. During the evening...we have mosquitos to contend with that could have West Nile Virus.
Fun, huh? But there are compensations. I know I've posted this photo before, but it is early outside, and I can't get a new one for you. But this photo is of a tree right outside my office window. Gloriously in bloom, it is one good thing about summer!
The crepe myrtle tree outside my window. Bright watermelon pink blooms always makes me smile. Probably 20' tall now. And I planted it as a little sprig in the center of the yard. One night, going to the neighbors' house, I stepped on it in the darkness and split it in half.
Dismayed, I put the remains into the front flower bed, thinking 'oh well, I killed it'.
Obviously not. It blooms incredibly during the dry time of year. Right now, I can see about 20 clumps of bright pink. The sun is rising and the color is deepening and it is just a lovely sight.
We also, here at home, have a couple of new pets. My daughter has a puppy, a corgi/sheltie mix named Dakota. And we've adopted a new kitty too. His name is Louie and he is a rascal.
Unfortunately, it appears my only photo of Sir Louie is on my camera...so I can't post right now. I'm a bit tech challenged, it seems. That's okay. I know what I know and I do that, as well as possible. But right now, that kitty is just having a blast jumping around the office. I have a box full of packing peanuts that will move slightly when he dashes into it. Considering, in his expectations, anything box like is solid and does not move, he is intrigued.
Well, it is hot. So stay cool. Take a bath. Might I recommend some nice soap? LOL...
