Good 53º sunny clear morning. Clouds supposedly moving in later.... supposed to be 95º (UGH) today with chance of rain tonight and through til Tuesday. Great. Heat and rain.'s JUNE! Whoppen???? Half the year is gone. I am feeling sooooooooooo old. Don't want another birthday. GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA........................ Let's see, I will be celebrating my 25th birthday (NOT until this fall!!!) with 42 years of experience! Yeah, that works.

Yesterday I spent a great deal of time pruning trees, weed-eating, blowing leaves and grass.

Yesterday afternoon Maggie and I went to the mailbox in the golf cart and saw Mrs. Doe bolt from the tractor shed....


And look.... I interrupted Harley's nap.... tried to sneak up on him... but he caught me!

Dinner... a ginormas salad... mozzarella balls, grape tomatoes, avocados, asparagus, leftover coleslaw, fingerling potatoes, spinach, mini haricots vert (green beans), and bacon....

Cut asparagus into 1" pieces, discarding the hard ends, and stir fry in olive oil. Set aside and cool. Put the potatoes in a microwave safe dish and cover with water. Cook on high 12 minutes. Cover with cold water and ice. Dry. Cut into bite sized pieces. Pre cooked bacon, 1-2 min in the microwave, blot off fat, cut into bite size pieces. Mix all together. My favorite dressing is Best Foods Mayonnaise and lemon juice. I also whisked in some lemon infused olive oil (made with heated olive oil and cold pressed lemon)....    AWESOME!

All I know. Nuff said. TGIF. Ciao.
