It was hot, hot, hot here today. I started off the day by making lemon-blueberry muffins while it was still semi-cool outside. Sorry, no recipe; they were from a box.
N. worked hard at staying cool by playing in the kiddie pool with neighborhood friends.
We enjoyed a snack of fresh lemonade and homemade peanut butter cookies (I was in a baking mood after making the muffins!). If only we had a porch to enjoy them on.
Then it was back into the [by now somewhat muddy] kiddie pool for N.
As for me...I sat outside in the blazing sun doing some beading and some reading while drinking cold lemonade and watching all the kids play. I'd show you what I was working on, but it was for my swap partner. I liberally put sunscreen on N. all day, but forgot to sunscreen myself and got a minor sunburn on my upper arm. I was wearing a tank top today and now half my arm is tan and the other half is pink. Ah, the joys of having a farmer's tan.
I made tacos for dinner, so we checked N.'s tomato plants for tomatoes...
...and found some to have on our tacos.
All in all a lazy, relaxed sort of day. Well, except for having to break up the periodic fights between all boys in our backyard. And this post was looking so idyllic before that dose of reality!
