surviving the heat wave

It’s been so hot here for over a week.  It seems the Midwest is in a severe drought and heat wave. Temps have been in the 100’s.  We are staying cool but both our AC are running non stop.  I’m so ready for a cool down and some rain.  The grass is burned up and everything is drying up.  


not sure when i snapped this picture of my precious jewels but i wanted to share it.


I snapped this picture of my first sunflower that bloomed on one of my short returns home


the dogs enjoying a bit of cooler weather


Here is where we have been parked since returning to Illinois


Hubby has been attending his garden well until he got sick and now our son has taken over for him.  My sunflowers are all in bloom and absolutely beautiful!


Hubby’s tomatoes and cucumbers are doing great as well.  It’s taking a lot of work with the heat and lots of TLC.

I’m so looking forward to when these ripen for a delicious sandwich.  We have not had home grown tomatoes in several years!


Hubby has really enjoyed being parked where he could grow a small garden.  It’s one of the things he misses the most with the full time life style


This baby was delicious!  We’ve had several more since then.
