Summer So Far...

This was my last minute 4th of July vignette...well except for Phoebe.
While out and about during my shopping hunts, I found the white and blue saucer, the miniature love seat, and the handmade cross-stitched voila!

It has been over a month since I arrived in Minnesota, and have been enjoying every busy minute of it!!!  Weather has been absolutely perfect!!!  Cool, sunny, breezy, some rainy beautiful days, and with very few days of mild humidity.  I think we've had the AC on for less than 5 times since being here.  I feel so bad for my loved ones in the Valley of the Sun!

Every time I was ready to sit down and blog a little about "our summer life", something would prevent me from doing, company, pets, health, weather, time, meeting new friends, ...
but today has been the perfect day & time to get back in the saddle again!

We had a wonderful 4th of July spent with Hubby's cousin and her husband.
We spent most of the day outside enjoying the excellent weather and played croquet.  Cousin Laura and I were newbies at the game, and the best part of it was that I won...beginners luck!
Hubby cooked for us super delicious barbecued pork ribs for our dinner.  The meat fell off the bone...yummy!!! And for dessert, Cousin Laura and her Hubby Jeff brought a Cherry Tart...OMG heavenly!!!
Unfortunately, we were too tired to drag ourselves to see the fireworks, but we sure could hear them.
