  14. Hi friends, some of you are getting the same type of storms we had last week. It gets old fast! I must say though, I feel so bad for the people out west, they are suffering so with the heat and the fires. I have relatives in AZ and NM and they have been lucky so far, but it has been quite frightening. I hope they have rains there soon, without the lightening of course, as that seems to be starting many of the fires.

  15. Beautiful post ;o) I hope you have a fantastic 4th of July ;o)
    (I feel so sad about the firemen who lost their lives! 19 of them! Many prayers to them and their families!!!)

  16. I just happen to be a big fan of summer too! Have yourself a great July 4th weekend.

  17. Hello Diane, I know it's rather late to wish you a Happy Fourth of July - but I'm going to anyway! I've just got back from my holiday, and I'm busy catching up you’re your posts. Barbara.

  18. That was supposed to say catching up with your posts! That's what holiday's do for you! x
