I'M SEEING RED!!!

Oh it's so hot - and I know it's hot for many of you out there.
It makes me think of FIRE and that makes me think RED!
Thank goodness for air conditioning.
So just enjoy the pictures....

But before that I want to share a couple pictures from last week when we went to the Kenosh, WI Kingfish game.  There is fun action all the time as well as the ball players ( Collegiate players hoping for  the big time!).  They play their hearts out and in between innings they have several races and contests. 

There's the Dancing Elvi's, Toilet Seat Races, Human Bowling and more. There's even a bounce house, sandbox and bobble-head ring toss.
Such a wonderful fun family event that we got to enjoy with our sons family.
I had a hard time getting clear pictures with the phone

Even though it was soooo hot I made a delicious Blueberry Lemon Yogurt Cake....it is so moist and you put a glaze to finish it off.
We bought 5 lbs of Michigan Blueberries from Gooseberries Market here in Burlington - they get just so many of these wonderful huge fresh blueberries in and sell them in 5 lb. boxes for $12.00.
I made a double recipe so I could freeze one to give to my step father.
I'll try and get the recipe on my 'favorite recipes' page later.
(Forgot to take a picture of it baked...)

the berries are huge and so sweet!

A couple weeks ago friends of ours from AZ were passing through Janesville so we drove there and had breakfast with them at Cracker Barrel - always love seeing Marilyn and Jim even though it's only once a year. We still chat as if it was just a few days between visit.  Love that girl.  Known her since 9th grade.

I was treated to a wonderful belated birthday lunch from my husband - we went to the Grand Geneva Resort in Lake Geneva, WI.  Sat over looking the pool area and had a very leisurely lunch....but so sad, they were totally out of iced tea!  It's summer for heaven sake.
And the reason it was belated is because on my birthday
I had my sister's Celebration of Life.
I was told several times how sad to spend my birthday
at such a sad event...I said it wasn't sad because we
always spent our birthday's together so it was an honor for me
to say 'goodbye' to her on my birthday...perfect day!
Loved you tons Shirley and you are missed tons.

It's a Gray Gray Day!

Have you ever looked around your home to see how 
much 'gray' or 'tin' colored items you have?
I guess those of us that like the Colonial and Primitive 
styles have quite a lot of it - at least we do.
I'm just going to have a picture day here - no family news
 or other news...just a fun picture post...so enjoy.  
Maybe you all can come  up with some in your home
 to share with us.

















































I hope you enjoyed my picture show today
Have a wonderful week!
Karen
