If Only...

House sitting is an unusual experience. You are in charge, but not "home". You have responsibilities, but they are different. The house noises are different too. We are adjusting, though. Not too hard to do in this mansion of a place on the lake.
If only...
there were no mosquitos,
a cool breeze blowing,
and a chef...
I guess that might be a little much. I can dream though, can't I?

We visited the coolest shopping place yesterday. It is like a little city in itself with plenty of unique eating places, quaint shops and some familiar but smaller chain stores. Hubby gets to come down and we plan to show him around and explore some more ourselves.
If only...
the wallet were as big as the eyes...
Hmmm. I'll leave this open ended.

I suppose I have been away from this Texas heat so long that I just am not adapting. I feel like I am going through menopause. Always hot and sweaty. Seriously, how do people do it?
If only...
I was a man...
I would get a buzz cut for sure.

I love to find cool little shopping places. It sounds so fun. I want to go.
It has been so hot and humid here too. I am going to melt pretty soon. LOL
Amen to no mosquitos too. They are so annoying.
Tell your girls i took that as a compliment. They are too sweet.

Hey, I know women who've gotten buzz cuts. :-) But your hubby might object.

P.S. Nothing is yummier than a good homemade peach pie. So glad you have peaches. They're scrumptious (sp??) Good thing I don't live near that ice cream place!!!!
