Escaping the Heat and My Kitchen Cabinets

Hello Everyone!!!

I really haven’t fallen off the face of the earth…. just taking another short road trip and my timing couldn’t have been perfect.  We hit 108 here in Fresno for almost 3 days in a row. Miserable.

My first trip was to see my daughter, Madison in San Luis Obispo.  This is her first summer to spend away from home, stay where she goes to college, and work.  She turned 21 on the 15th.   Her sorority sisters and best friends took her on a “Pub Crawl” in San Luis Obispo.  Apparently, this is tradition.  I didn’t stick around for that one… I made sure she was in good hands and I headed home!

I was home just long enough to go to Physical Therapy (good ol’ sciatica acting up), come home, repack and my hubby and I headed up to beautiful Huntington Lake.

We had a wonderful time.

No TV or computer.

We did have cell phone coverage…

which my hubby took full advantage of….


We spent beautiful, quiet evenings on the boat, just floating….

Mia loves the boat, although, she isn’t a fan of her life jacket.

She has been known to jump in thinking she could chase a duck!

When there aren’t any ducks around…

the boat lulls Mia to sleep.

Changing gears here…

I have started on a huge project… my kitchen cabinets!!!  Here is a little sneak peek….

Yup, I’ve got my work cut out for me.  I’ll keep you updated on this project!

I have a delicious recipe to share with you this week that is AMAZING and Tracie has a great project that she will be sharing on Thursday.

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer.

I’m ready for it to be over with!
