Goodness to be it's Hot~!

Goodness to be it's so hot.. SO I got up early this morning and went out and cleaned out the burn barrel where we burn trash.. Yes, we can still burn trash here in our county.. IT was so full there was just no way I could add another burn to this barrel.. I weeded my garden and my flower bed.. they look so much better. My cucumbers are almost ready to pick.. Tomatoes are still green. I can hardly wait for my first tomatoe.. yum yum... There is nothing better than a Bacon/lettuce/tomato sandwich.. sometimes I add a fried egg to my sandwich.. It tastes so good..

This is the sunset from last night.. I thought it was so beautiful~! The sun was red and everything just glowed a rosy red.

Here is our Benny boy.. HE is so funny, he thinks if he has on these blue swimming glasses you can't see him.. He loves swimming at Holly's house and he is getting braver and braver everytime we go..

He's a happy boy... I just told him were going swimming..

We have such a bad case of Japanese Beetles.. I bought one of those beetle kits.. I put it out 4 days ago.. In one day I emptied the bag 3 times.. They smell so bad.. just like vomit.. So I decided that the small bags that comes with the kit was just not big enough.. SO I put out a kitchen garbage bag.. In 3 days I have collect a 1/2 bag of them per day.. Today Albert Martin who farms our farm came and sprayed for the Beetles.. I was so happy. I took down all my bags and burned them.. no more smell, no more beetles... The only way to really kill them is to empty the beetles that are in the bag into a bucket of soapy water.. Yikes they just boil in that water.. I heard a master gardener tell us on the noon news that these beetles have already laid their eggs for next year.. I'm not kidding you we have millions of them.. WHen you drive down the road they hit the windshield, wham wham wham... They must love certain trees because a lot of trees have no leaves and the tree has turned brown.. What is next..

I'm lovin the hot weather because hot weather does not bother me.. just think what the temperature is going to be in 6 months.. That will be January.. freezing cold... I think I'll just hang onto this warmer weather.. We have gotten lots of rain so no problem with the grass growing or the vege's in the garden getting enough moisture.

Have a Tiggeriffic Day~! ta ta for now.. stay cool and be careful~!~!

Your Japanese beetles are like our stink bugs--Just millions of them!!! They are my least favorite thing about the summer, my favorite is also yours, a BLT with an egg fried in bacon grease! mmmmmmm-gooood!! :-)
