Oh baby, it's cold outside...

NOT! (how's that for a 90's flashback).

It has been soo hot here. 90's plus every day and no rain. Kal and I transplanted two smallish trees a month ago that are barely hanging on. I've been watering them every day. Yesterday, a few wrens played in the little puddle left under one. It was picture perfect - you'll have to imagine it because I sat there and watched them without a camera.

We have been doing a lot of swimming - more like lounging in our backyard pool. And I've been doing karate like crazy. This past week I went to 8 classes. Why??? I don't know. I do know I need to move more and I am enjoying this right now ( but my buttocks really hurt).

Here are some swimming pic's to cool you off.

My tomato plants don't seem to mind the dry, hot weather. I'm waiting patiently for a BLT - NOT - i can't wait to eat a warm tomato right from the garden!

The boys watched Nick Walenda walk across Niagara Falls last week. They have been busy in the backyard creating tight rope riggings and zip lines. I suppose I should have stopped them for "safety reasons" but they weren't arguing and no body got hurt.

I have been doing a lot of creating/crafting. Just need to take pictures of all of it.
