My Weekly Smile; July 14, 2020

We are half way through July and summer is here, definitely no bones about it, it’s SUMMER! ! We’ve crested 100F (38C) several times through this last week. It is to be cooler as we head into this weekend. I’ll take anything under 100 degrees as I spend at least 2 hours each day outside with my horses. With my work schedule I am sometimes getting to the barn near noon, so silly hot but there is almost always a breeze which helps and I must take care of those cute ponies! My smile is for hot summer days and pony fun!

Not only is my smile for summer days, it is for summer fun eating home grown tomatoes! Not only am I getting some nice tomatoes my neighbor has given us some of theirs and so I am sharing with my girlfriend at the stables. My dear friend Maria suggested I mulch the bell peppers which are with the tomato plant and so I mulched them yesterday. I have been watering them a lot with the heat and there are many flowers on the bell pepper plants so we will see if they grow some bell peppers soon. Weeks ago one plant grew one bell pepper which I chopped up and froze. I haven’t taken any photos of my veggies lately. I’ll share this next weekend.

I’m smiling as I finish up my pink baby blanket and looking to make these cute little crochet cactus! Oh my, so much cuteness! There are 12 different cactus that I think will be so fun to stitch up and have a collection of cacti! I plan on giving some away as well. They should stitch up fairly quickly and am looking forward to making something new.

I’m going to end with a memory photo that popped up with the sister kitties. These cute kitties are my son and daughter-in-law’s kitties. I am thankful I am able to take them and enjoy their company as they now live with me, hubby and my youngest son. This was when they were just kittens 4 years ago. How can you not smile! 😀

Enjoy the rest of your week and I hope you have some things that make you smile. I have enjoyed sharing with you all and stay cool and safe.

  1. A smiling , pony loving, kitty loving, crochet crazy kind of gal! Well I am delighted to know you crazy gal. I enjoyed your smile this week. Yes, you do have it hot. We were up to those temps with the humidex last week and will be up there again by this weekend.But its OK with me. We will have lots of cold and colder in the winter and I will be pretty grumpy then. Enjoy your week Diana.

    1. Hehehe, I’m glad to know you too!! I’m just crazy silly about so many things. I’m so happy I could bring you a smile or two! I don’t mind the heat (but dang, I’m dripping wet after the stables. After I shower I feel good but wish with all the sweating I’d lose a pound or two!) I do enjoy summer and all that it brings! I’d be grumpy too with the cold y’all get each winter. Thanks for visiting today! 😀

    1. Thank you Maria!! I can see how much the mulching helps keep the soil moist. I will keep you updated on the bell peppers growth! I’m so happy you enjoyed my smile post this week. Have a wonderful rest of the week! 😃

    1. Thank you so much for your wonderful comments! I can’t tell you how much I enjoy writing my smile posts. Sometimes I sit and think am I just repeating myself? And I tell myself, naw, keep writing and sharing! Means so much your encouraging words. 😀

  2. Summer and taking care of ponies sounds nice, though I don’t know how many 100+ days I could take. You don’t have the insane humidity there, do you? So maybe slightly better than 95 with 100% humidity? Hot all the same! I’m sure the horses love bath day. Fresh tomatoes are always great, though we typically don’t see them until August or even September. Hope the peppers work out. Have a great week!

    1. We don’t have the humidity, but like you stated it’s still really hot and can feel like an oven if there is no breeze. 🙃 And thanks, home grown anything is YUMMY! I didn’t know your tomato season starts later there. Hoping my bell peppers fruit! Have a super week! 😀
