You have come roaring back, haven't you, E? It's so nice to hear from you.

Bill, I'll have some of the coffee now, and I'll start another pot just in case.

Afternoon, Inspirations people. Summer Heatwave 2 : The Sun Strikes Back is now under way here. But, hey, it's the weekend and I really don't need to go anywhere, just get some household stuff done. Some yard work but I'll try to get that done in the morning before things get too steamy.

* scarfs a couple blueberry coconut cookies *

Tea, anyone? Kettle's on.

Hello everyone! Just haven't had the chance to pop on here in the past few weeks, so thought I'd catch up with everyone's news. Nice to see you here, E!

We're having a typical Irish July; damp, overcast, blustery and barely making 17/60 degrees! Now I know why I usually go abroad for a week or two in the summer!

Never mind, a couple of Sara's delicious cookies and cup of coffee will warm me up! :)

Good morning, dear friends. It is 83F/28C here on the prairie. Welcome to the Kansas hot, dry summer.

I'm so pleased to see more and more showing up each day. Nice to know good friends are still around.

Coffee is fresh and the water is hot. Let's all have something to start our days.

Oh the day is almost ended. Bedtime calls. I got lots of chores done today. And E's refrain helped me: this is the way I do my chores, do my chores, do my chores, this is the way I do my chores early in the morning. That feels good.
I did find a nasty looking species crawling across the floor. At least an inch long, many, many, many legs, antennae 5/8" long - brown color. Moves fast.
Sorry, I didn't gently move it outside like so many of my friends do. I stomped on it.
Now aren't you glad I came in? I will take a hot cup of herbal tea before bed. thank you.

Good morning, coffee and kettle are on and I think there's still some cookies and e's goodies. I picked up a couple boxes of Timmy's finest donuts and pastries for those looking for a late breccy.

Warm and muggy here. Chance of showers later.

Good morning. It is raining up a storm here. I just made it out for Victor's morning walk. The rain started as soon as I was putting on the pot of coffee. I'm waiting for it to brew now as I listen to the wind blowing the rain against the walls of the house. The area meteorologists tell us we need this rain to avoid a drought condition.

It should be over when the pup needs to go out once more.

Take care out there.

The weather is too hot here. We've had a stretch of twenty days in a row over ninety. It's 100 today. I did my usual Monday grocery shopping and the ice cream had almost completely melted by the time I got home.

The humidity is oppressive as well and it is not supposed to change anytime soon. Thank god for air conditioning.

I made some lemon/limeade. I'll leave a cold pitcher on the counter.

I'll take some cherry cookies and go and try not to melt.

Cheers Everyone!

Limeade and peanut butter banana cookies? I am down with it.

Weather improving here. A bit cooler today and supposed to be even better the next couple days. Still kind of muggy so the ac went on this evening to get things comfortable for sleeping.

Got a decent bike ride in tonight. I think I am up to 5 days straight exercising. Usually I need a break after about 4 so this is a good sign, I guess. either that or a sign I'm going to crash hard (figuratively, not literally) tomorrow.

We had stormy weather all night with lightening in the distance and lots of rain here. It will help the crops.

The coffee is ready if anyone cares for a cup. Also, there is always hot water ready for tea drinkers.

I finally got a poem finished and posted yesterday. I enjoy getting back into writing. I need to finish the story I am working on.

Have a great day, folks.

We had storms here as well last night. Didn't really cool anything off but my garden loved it.

I'm back to manic cooking and baking. I was ecstatic to find yeast at the store yesterday so it's bread baking day today.

I also tried a no-churn recipe for ice cream last night. Coffee Oreo flavor, it turned out well. I'm going to start experimenting with different flavors now that I know it it works. It's ridiculously easy to make.

It was too hot this weekend out on the bay. The water temperature was ninety degrees and the bay was full of large jellyfish. I don't mind the heat if I can swim, but I do not get along with jellyfish. I have an extreme reaction to their stings.

I'll leave some ice cream in the fridge. It will go great with some of Sarah's cookies.

Cheers Everyone!

Cooled off here for a few days, which I am down with.

Had a nice takeout dim sum today. My beloved immigrated to my homeland 33 years ago today so wanted to celebrate. There was actually a couple eating in at the restaurant, everyone else was taking out.

Writing seems to be off the table for me right now. I have been doing some work on my fantasy world (the one where Night of the Wind is set) but whether I get a story out of that, who knows. I once had good intentions about that story being the start of something and I just haven't liked any of my ideas for continuing it.

I have jotted two ideas in OneNote already. On two different themes no less. I don't see the word bank being too much of a challenge save the three common words. The words in each theme fit the theme well enough that I would probably use two or three of them just naturally when writing on that subject.

Howdy folks
A late drop in of sorts
A beautiful day here even if my DVD player died
(stupid company won't honor the warranty since I don't have the original receipt)
So I'm on the hunt for a replacement DVD (yippee)
The new competition sounds like super duper fun. Stand alone summer story (easy peasy) I might have something in mind.
A large iced coffee sounds yummy in the tummy.

I'm making some coffee now. It should be up presently. Tea can be had immediately.

I have not even thought about the writing competition other than relishing the idea of writing again in a contest. I'll have something out soon. We have until Sept.7 to finish it up. No rush at all.

With a 500 word limit, I figured it wouldn't take long for entries to start showing but, wow, three already. Guess I need to get cracking.

Scottish breakfast is filling my cup this morning and (checks cookie jars) mmmm, pumpkin.

Sara, I hope your migraine goes away soon. I'm familiar with that pain. Sometimes I can stop one if I catch it at the beginning by drinking a Coke.

I was pleased to see three entries already for the new competition.

It hasn't been below 90 since June here. It's predicted to stay above ninety for the foreseeable future. So I am indulging in my summer hobby of complaining about the heat. I'll switch it up come winter.

I have been cooking enough this week so it's leftover night.

I made a pitcher of Limeade with fresh mints leaves. I'll leave it on the counter as I scurry away with some cookies.

Cheers Everyone!
