Dog Days.........





I did not realize how long it had been since I blogged, but since everyone is telling me they are tired of seeing my melons...I decided I better get something up...but its been so boring around here, and since August is my LEAST favorite month, I hate it, there hasn't been much to blog about. I do not like the heat, I hate to sweat, and its been very humid so far this summer.....so needless to say Im not a happy camper. So while sitting out in the back yard this morning I was thinking to myself..soooo.."What is GOOD about August?" Im trying to think positive. Well, theres a few things, Sept. is almost here, and although September is not as fun as it was when I had small kids and school shopping was so much fun, at least it signals that October is almost here. The zinnias are in full bloom, and I love growing them, they never disappoint do they? All the birdhouses are full of babies, and I spotted this awesome butterfly, he stayed in my yard for along time..and see if you can spot the baby lizard on the stone, hes so tiny and my yard is full of them...I have learned to keep my camera outside with me, always trying to get the best shot of the baby birds hanging out of the houses when feeding, which I have yet to get. ok, what else.....watermelon...dodger games....ok, Im trying hard here, anyone LIKE August???? OK, Glenni, I know YOU do, you like the heat!!!!! I hate it, funny, I vent it the summer, you vent in the winter!
OK, the book Im reading...I love Dr. Oz, and this book is about staying young, which I should have thought about BEFORE I got old, but better late than never right...Im on a mission to feel better, and I think Im on the right track, losing wieght, eating right, walking tons, taking my vitamins EVERYDAY, trying to get rid of some bad habits and replace them with healthier ones.
Lastly I will leave you with a picture of the beach, we headed down there Sunday for a birthday brunch for a friend, August is nice at the beach!!!!

I am with you on the August thing. HATE summer... hate the heat, humidity and hate to sweat. Yuk. Even in Wisconsin it gets so darn hot. But lucky us this last week we have been in the 70's for the day high and down in the low 60's at night. Sorry I can't deliver some of the cooler temps to you too!
