The View From My Umbrella

The heat is on my friends.

We are trying to keep cool by the pool as much as possible.

We are wrapping a full week with an all day swimming championship in Cary, NC on Saturday.

I love the swim season, but it will be nice to not have to be at the pool so early each morning. We are all starting to wear out.

Next week I hope to use an early morning (or two) to go pick blackberries and blueberries.

I also hope to find my cooking mojo again. I love to be in the kitchen but somehow I lost that loving feeling about 6 (or 9) months ago.

Yesterday I made a delicious dinner: Roasted Corn and Tomato tarts with fresh salad. The tomatoes and cucumbers were from my own garden....which was satisfying. As I was preparing dinner I remembered why I love being in my kitchen. I'm ready to spend some time in there in again.

All's time to move from under the umbrella to the water. I hope y'all are staying cool!

Don't get too tired of the view! I still need to work on my tan. Some of us aren't as smokin' hot as others.
