Just look at that thermometer yesterday

We’re basking now, folks.  We’re making up for that 13 below zero day last winter.  High Five!  It’s SUMMER!

I’ve had a very quiet day with much outdoor time spent on the deck and in the garden. So, for once, I’m not going to worry about writing a novella on this blog.

In the hot, hot evening yesterday we lingered in downtown L’Anse, by cool Lake Superior, feeling the breeze and listening to bluegrass music.  Wow, could they play the mandolin, the guitar, the banjo and the upright bass.  The audience was grooving.  What an awesome way to spend an August night.

Tonight we harvested lettuce and spinach and one hot pepper and beet greens and a handful of cilantro for dinner.  What a gift to step outside in the garden and bring dinner inside.  Then we went back outside and ate on the deck.  A cool breeze blows, even though it’s 84 degrees.  OK, I’m done talking now.  Promise.   (Shortest blog ever?)
