Did you hear me laugh aloud at that boy with his head hanging over the lemonade sign?

linda, i am wringing out every drop left of summer. so far i've filled 35 bathtubs and i'm shooting for 12 more!

of course it doesn't hurt that i currently have the ocean one block away.

love!

Really like the now defunct Cypress Gardens pictures. A little piece of Florida that is gone forever.

Linda, summer is leaving us I can feel it in the mornings, much cooler and the air feels a little crisp. love it!! I do love the lazy days of summer,no routine but I am not in love with too much heat. For some reason we have been spared this year but I know the rest of the poor country has been blasted. Enjoy your last slow days, Kathysue

is anywhere on Earth a cooler clime?

Kathysue said...

Linda, this Sat 21st I am doing a post on Whats in a Name and Your name is on my list of blog titles that have intrigued me and made me wonder why you named your blog what you named it. If you have time it would be great if you could come by and leave a comment or email me at Goodlifeofdesign@blogspot.com I also linked your name to your blog. Should be fun to read others explanations,Thanks Kathysue

Locusts are humming out my door right now. Summer is fading. Fall is coming. I can feel the shift. Loved the plates on the wall. Cool idea.
