Is it SUMMER Yet???

With a car temperature of 102 degrees F? Yep, I think it's safe to say it is indeed summer. Of course that's only the temperature after leaving the car in the parking lot for about 2 hours in the middle of the day. It went down a few degrees lower...high 90s, after a few. Still, it was hot hot hot when we got in the car. I almost sprang out of my seat the second I sat down. Aside from the high temps, we're also getting rain throughout the day. It usually comes late afternoon but today it started early. It's still drizzling actually...and the sun is out. Yep, that's our summer weather alright...rain AND shine at the same time. At least our plants/grass get the water they need especially when it gets really hot around here. Nothing much happening around here except that the man of the house has started his flying lesson already. He still has a long way to go but he's bent in getting his license sooner or later. I don't know how long it will take to get

Shoe Aficionado....

Or should I say 'aficionada' since it's a she who actually likes shoes so much that I'm tagging her that term. On her birthday we actually got her 2 pairs of sneakers, a pair of sandals and a pair of flip-flops. That was barely  a month ago. Our shoe holder on the foyer is full...of her kicks! Well, it's for all of our shoes but she has the most in there. Her bedroom is also starting to look like a shoe store because of the boxes of shoes there. I decided to get an under the bed shoe holder to free up space in the shared shoe holder. You would think that because of this she will slow down in wanting more pairs. Not quite. One pair she's always wanted is a pair of cowboy boots. I think she's been wanting them eversince she was about 5 years old. We haven't gotten her a pair for a couple of reasons. First, her feet are growing by the minute and we didn't want to spend the money on shoes that she'd only wear once or twice. Second, our weather is n

Well...Hello There!

It's been a while. Where have I been and what have I been up to? For one, I've been to Mississippi earlier this month. Actually, it's the whole family that traveled to MS. It wasn't a vacation by any means. We just accompanied the man of the house for a service call. It was a very tiring trip because we were on the road for most of it. It seems like we just went there to spend the night then drive back home. How long was the drive? It took us about 11 hours, one way. We left on a Monday morning and came back home Tuesday evening ~ around midnight. It's okay because we spent that time together so no worries. After that whirlwind trip to MS we've been staying put at home. Although the weekend before last, my father and daughter tandem had a one of a kind experience. Both of them were able to ride a gyrocopter or gyroplane. Originally, it was only the Dad who was supposed to ride it. When he got off he said that maybe the little one can also do it one of these
