This has got to be one of the hottest summers ever here in Michigan. I can't say I've heard the official news but every night the news is talking about record temps for record number of days, etc. If you do venture out you are dripping with sweat within just a few minutes. Yesterday I went out to the garden because it had been a week and I was pretty sure some tomatoes would be ready to pick. There were a few and they are absolutely delicious! But the big surprise was that I had 3 cucumbers to harvest, hiding in a nice full vine!

So, when I last blogged, which was quite some time ago, school was winding down. Here's a quick update of what's happened since then! We did attend Ryan's funeral and I cried through the whole thing. It was just so sad that such a sweet little boy and wonderful family suffered and then lost the battle. It was good to have that closure though before school was out. I just saw his Mom at the grocery store the other day and there really are no words. We talked about orchids since I had one in my cart, small talk. Just before school was out I celebrated, and I use that term loosely, another birthday. My good friends Loretta and Natalie took me on the Scamp Home Tour, always a good time. My guys took me out to dinner at Outback and then for my gift they gave me another couple hours in the Community Garden, spent planting corn, tomatoes and peppers! My 18 hours are now complete and I think I even have an extra hour in the bank!
