Firecracker HOT 4th of July

Lynne Robinson, Hewitt, New Jersey

WHEW. It’s hot out there. And no rain. Weird for us. In fact, I had to turn on the sprinkler for the first time in a couple of years. My bee balm was fading and looking pretty sad. Unlike Colorado, most people do not have underground sprinkler systems because it rains so much. We depend on the rain to keep our yards looking good.

Our day was pretty low key compared to yesterday with guests. We washed Mia very early and took a short drive. We were home by noon. The afternoon was spent around the pool. Dinner was a new recipe on the grill which neither one of us cared for all that much. Oh well.

Early evening found us around the pool again. The pool is 82 degrees and feels like bath water. We’ve seen a few bats this year, not as many as in years past, but at least it’s good to see a few.

Here is as strange photo taken at a low exposure as Rick swam in front of me.

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday!

Hope you had a good holdiay, as well!  Love the bee balm pic!  It looks like they are enjoying the shower!

Wish I were swimming in your pool today. It’s hideous in DC. Stay cool! xx

Looks like you had beautiful weather, Colorado wasn’t as lucky.  We were in Evergreen by Sunday night, and it was barely 50 degrees and pourin rain; so much fog you couldn’t even see fireworks!

LOVE the picture of Rick swimming by, so cool!

Katie, yes it’s beautiful but very very HOT. We are in the middle of a scorching heat wave with temps in the 90’s and heat index in the 100’s. Too hot! But great pool weather. wink
