Sounds like it took about a week for the hot air to reach you! Good luck staying cool. While we may end up with a few warmer days, I doubt very much that we will see the heat problems here again this summer. Shorter days/longer nights help cool things off.

The heat is definitely here. I won't complain, it's just what the corn (sweet and grain) need. If our grain corn is only good for silage (ie cows) we will go bankrupt. We can't afford to buy corn all winter.

Hi Outdoor Mom, thanks for stopping by. I'm not sure the menu planning is from being organized. It's more my personality (I always kid that it's the German in me -haha). I couldn't imagine trying to decide every day what I'd make for supper. I like having that decision already made -I just do what the white board says. I actually make 2 weeks menus at a time. We only grocery shop twice a month, to save money. I couldn't do that without a menu.

BTW, I checked out your blog. My little one thought your little one was adorable :)
