Today, it's about 85 and sunny with a gentle breeze blowing. We went out and picked raspberries, and I'm whipping cream here in a minute for berries and cream. We took a leisurely pontoon boat ride around the lake, and there wasn't a soul around. I sat outside and read a book and drank a homebrew after that, and now Bob is making a dinner of pork chops and vegetables, all on the grill. His garden gave us tons of veggies, and he brushed them with olive oil and put them in a grill basket.

I love summer! Life is good.

What did YOU do today? And, what's your favorite thing about summer?

I got to work a 10 hour shift. Thanks for rubbing it in! LOL

The best thing about summer is the great fishing in FL.

I messed up the clear coat on the front fairing to my motorcycle, 8 hours of prep work wasted. Now Im inside depressed about the whole thing and too sick to have a delicious homebrew.

*sorry to be a downer*

It don't snow in summer. 'nuff said.

It's been in the 90's almost every day for two weeks now, but I never complain on the basis that I bitch about the winters so much that I forfeit the right!

Well, aren't you just a bunch of Suzie Sunshines!

I didn't know it, but Bob bought some Wisconsin sweet corn. So, here is a picture of our summer dinner:

Proof, if needed, that Yoops is definitely a woman of the female persuasion.

(And quite possibly upset about the fact that her kids are all growded up now)

Oh, yes, homemade wine too. It's a 2008 oaked chokecherry.

We are quite a long way from ripe tomatoes, but we have tons of snowpeas and snap peas, beets, carrots, greens, etc. The potatoes should be ready soon.

Heck no- I'm glad that the little buggers are grown and gone!
