It's hard to believe that August will be here in just a few more days. It's been hot here in Central Florida this summer, but we've had enough rain to keep things looking green. The garden planted in the spring has helped stretch my food budget this summer. We've eaten countless salads from it. I'm going to plant some more tomatoes in the next couple of weeks and perhaps some more lettuce, too.
All of the Crepe Myrtles in our yard are in full bloom. We have both pink and white varieties. Eventually it would be nice to add some purple and red varieties as well. We've mixed in a lot of fun this summer. Last weekend my hubby and I spent an evening with with one of the couples' Sunday school classes from our church. We ate supper at a Japanese steakhouse and then played glow-in-the-dark miniature golf. That was a first for me. The putt-putt place was inside a mall, and all of the props glowed in the dark. It was definitely challenging, but I think I prefer the regular kind of putt-putt on a course where I can actually see the hole I'm aiming for. :)After we finished golfing we stopped by a restaurant for dessert. I've been staying away from sugar lately but decided to splurge on our date night. Hubby and I each ordered a brownie sundae. Talk about a huge dessert! We could have split one, but where's the fun in that? :) We really enjoyed the fellowship with good Christian friends. Bookworm spent two weeks visiting my dad. All of the kids missed her, but I think Lil' Nut missed her the most. She hasn't let Bookworm out of her sight since she came home.
Hopefully we'll get away for a mini-vacation later this week. I'm ready for some R & R. :) I hope you all have a wonderful week!
