The last couple posts before this have been about not so fun road trips, and I hope for better days in July, so here's a few pictures of this and that at the end of June. Summers here in the mountains are not that bad, and the hot months are July and August. And up until a week ago, it was chilly in the mornings, and I had my heater on, but it's starting to get warmer now, and Summer has shined its face on us.
When I saw Jess recently, she was wearing the cutest blouse. She said she got it from Macy's, and I told her I loved it. Last week, I got a package in the mail. It was the same blouse in my size, and with it came a large chocolate bar!
Every Summer, I take a drive to the creek, and always see the beautiful field of yellow. It was time for a drive there, and I'll show more pics later.
My son brings me these Mazapan (Marzipan) candies every now and then. He finds it in the Mexican isle, and I like the red roses on the wrapper. People either love Marzipan or hate it, and I like the taste. How about you?
My neighbor's roses through the window.
Isn't this rainbow cactus so pretty? Jess saw it at Downtown Disney, and I like the Balance flag waving from it. It's a good reminder to have balance in our lives.
My pink mini rose bush also made it through the Winter's snow. The first bloom came out last week.
My neighbor's new bird feeder is very cool, and even more so that a hummingbird visited while taking the picture.
My neighbor down the road, an old man, walks his dog frequently, and he always has a friendly "hello" for me. One time he told me he was glad that I moved to the neighborhood.
Made some mango chicken with veggies - broccoli, bell peppers, onions, tomatoes, and mango juice. It had a sweet taste and turned out good.
I was talking with Nel the other day about something, and her response was, "we'll make it work." It was her last week teaching, and she has a Summer break and is taking a two-week trip to a far away land. I hope she has a great vacation, she works so hard. She has always found a way to makes things work. I appreciate those words so much.
I know some people are suffering from the heat right now in many states, so try to stay cool and take care.
