Dog Days of Summer


Earlier this week it rained like I have never seen before. The news said we got 10 inches! Went downstairs and suprise!... the basement was flooded. We immediately tried to salvage what we could and removed carpet padding and hopefully we can save the carpet. So today I had a bit of time and went out into my back yard to enjoy the sun.......so...what to do what to do? Should I pick some tomatoes?

 
Nope They are still green...well, I have never tried to make fried green tomatoes before....
naaaaaa not in the mood




Hey Da' Mom Play with meeeeeeeeeee




              Or maybe I'll pick some basil and make pesto! yum!.....nope I'll leave that for the weekend




Ahem, Mom? How 'bout playing with me????





Oh Man, I could sit right there on my swing and read my book...bliss!
