Hey Yall! Guess what? The temperature in my little part of Maine is 68 degrees this morning!!!!!!! I have my windows open and there is a nice breeze moving through the house. And you know what that means? It means that I won't have anything to complain about today. Well, we will see...... I will try and make this a more uplifting read and not such a downer.

Yesterday, I got out in the yard and cut the grass. It is amazing how much that grass grows in just a few days! I love being out in the yard. It just seems to clear my head even though yesterday it got filled back up with pollen. It is everywhere!

In order to not heat up the house with the stove and oven, I had planned to make some cold salad meals. I wanted to make chicken salad, but that requires boiling chicken breasts. So I boiled my chicken breasts last night on the grill! We have a burner on one side. I sat out on the porch to make sure I didn't burn the house down and read my book. By the time the chicken was done, the word had spread to the mosquitoes that I was outside and ready for the biting. I was ready to get back inside. I told Dick that if he wanted a hot meal, he needed to get it at the mill. Aren't I just a sweet wife? At least I told him where to get it......

I finally put up new curtains in my kitchen. IF blogger cooperates, I will take some pictures and post them. Yesterday, I took a bag of clothes by Goodwill. I decided to go in and see if then had any big round rod top with finials curtain rods. They didn't. BUT....they did have two wide pocket rods complete with all the hardware.....two for 99 cents! So today, I will be taking back my two wide top rods that I bought at Walmart for $20.

Oh! I have added some new blogs to my "Recommended by Frannycakes" on the side of this blog. Check them out! Noble Pig is a new favorite! She has some of the most wonderful recipes along with mouth watering pictures! She is a wine lover and makes some good recommendations. Most of you know that I really don't drink wine very much, but she has made me want to try a few and see if I can find one I like. Go check her out! You won't be sorry! Go.....NOW!

That's about all I have this morning! I'll try to check back with you this afternoon. Tootles!
