Catching Up

I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July. I can't believe it's already July!? We're in the middle of a heat wave here in Connecticut. Seriously, it's supposed to be over 100 degrees today? What the...??

We hung out on the (parent's) boat this weekend and tried to find relief from the heat (which didn't really happen). Sitting on a sailboat when there is NO wind on a hot day isn't exactly paradise. Although, the good company (and ice cold beer) were enough to make me happy.

On a somber note, my husband's grandfather (and my adopted grandfather) passed away a couple weeks ago (hence the dead air here on my blog). He lived a long, great life and touched so many peoples' hearts. We loved him dearly.

This post is all over the place, I know. It's a true representation of how my brain is these days!

I've done a lot of planting recently in our little "city garden" (as I call it). I felt the need to document it here since I have no idea if these new little plants are going to make it through this heat wave. Hang on little plants, hang on!
