First order of business is the winner of my book from last Thursday’s contest. Congratulations to Molly and Alfie who were spot on with 120 photos! Nice guess work! This Thursday there will be another chance to win!
You may have read in the papers that cousin Lena was staying at my B&B for a week. I know word about these big events gets around. We were really excited, but the weather could not have been worse. We had temperatures in the upper 90’s, with dew points in the 70’s which set records that we weren’t thrilled about setting. Aside from early morning and evenings, it was just too hot for us to be outside. We made the most of the visit anyway, and Mom had strawberry/banana homemade ice cream treats to cool us down.
Sometimes I really wonder if Lena is okay mentally, as she is so fixated on that darn tennis ball. I think she would fall over dead before she would stop chasing that thing! Speaking of dead, this heat is killing our lawn even with a sprinkler system, BUT the weeds are still flourishing, great!
Lena is back home now. We miss her, but we all had a blast and I’m sure she will be back.
