Happy Summer 2022!

Good morning sweet friends! Thank you for understanding my absence last week and for your kind well wishes and prayers.  I’m happy to report my mother and sister seem to be past the worst of Covid and on the road to recovery.  Praise the Lord! Happy Summer 2022! Can you believe it? Thank you for joining us @ the Thursday Favorite Things party.  I hope you are all well and enjoying some pleasant weather.  Summer started off with a bang, here in Northern California, with 105 degrees!

No thank you. I found out that there’s a myth out there, that some people think everyone in California has AC.  We do not.   Thankfully, we’re only forecast for 90 today, I’ll consider that a win by comparison.  You all gave me such wonderful Summer posts and ideas to choose from last week! 

Let’s look at some of your awesome offerings.  Again, thank you for all your wonderful comments and participation. I truly enjoy every single one of you! 

Tracey from the Kitchen Is My Playground's Creamy Cucumber Salad with Fresh Herbs is the perfect summer starter! So delicious, refreshing, and cooling on hot days. I'm so glad she shared her recipe with us!

Pop over and congratulate Barbara from Mantel and Table, who's not only celebrating a big birthday, she's sharing some of her beautiful tricks on How to Throw A Beautiful Milestone Birthday Party

Liz from The Savory Cipolla's Pesto Ricotta Crostini with Roasted Cherry Tomatoes looks absolutely delicious. I love bruschetta! 
Rachel at the Antiqued Journey's Patriotic Decorating With Vintage Enamelware is simply beautiful in its unassuming way.
Lois, from Walking on Sunshine's Fourth of July Cake, looks absolutely wonderful for the upcoming festivities.
Amber from Follow the Yellow Brick Road's Simple and Sunny Summer Kitchen Refresh
Carol from Comfort Spring's Fast & Filling Meals looks just up my ally!

That's it for me this week!  

This is us!
