We Made it to the 60’s!

We have had such a hot summer this year but the past week has been cooler.  We’ve actually had a few days where it didn’t get  into the 90’s.

We’ve been waiting for it to get down into the 60’s at night and this morning we got up to 67 degrees!   Hallelujah!

The weather here in South Georgia is very nice in the fall and we’re really looking forward to it.

We’ve been real busy preparing the house for sale, while trying to keep up with the normal chores like mowing, weeding and trimming.  The grass is still growing pretty fast, so that’s a daily chore.

Our last Bluebird family is around and so far all 3 babies have survived.  The other families are scattered so we don’t see them together.  We certainly had a busy and successful season with them this year.

Al is getting ready to plant some snow peas.  We planted some this spring, but got them planted too late, so the heat got them before we got our fill of snow peas.  They do well in the fall, so we’re hoping to get another crop going.

My home made soap has cured and I have started using it.  I gotta tell you, home made soap is much better!  Or maybe I’m prejudiced, but we both really like it.

We also had cooler weather this past week but it's heating up just in time for the Labor Day camping trips.

Glad to hear the Bluejay family survied.

Enjoy the nice weather!

Snow peas sounds like you're looking for some white precipitation. :)

It seems like just last week that you wrote about having to wait for your soap to cure. I'm happy for you that it turned out well. Are you going to make some more?
