Yep, I'm still here!

What a gorgeous day! My favorite thing to do on a summer morn, is to wander my yard in my jammies. Don't worry, I'm not shocking the neighbors. We are very private due to tall fences. Best purchase ever. I turn on my fountains, deadhead some plants and sit on my swing and just breath in the air. Cool, clean mountain air. Perfect way to start my day.

Well, life goes on doesn't it? Goes to show we just shouldn't worry so much. I have a feeling the world will get a little crazier in the next months so I am retreating back into quarantine. Too many stupid people out there making this virus worse. We started to yard sale and visited some stores but when we saw so many people without masks, we opted to stay home. Just not worth the risk.

We celebrated the greatest Daddy ever in our yard with distancing, of course. We had chocolate cream pie and the kids gave him a pot of flowers for his shop steps. I gave him a Glacier Park blanket that we had seen when we took our Jammer tour last fall. I was just now able to get one sent to me. He loved it! Now I can crank up the A/

My black monolith of a frig is dying on me. She has been around for 15 years and has decided to cause us a bit of grief. At first we though it was just the ice maker but no, the control panel is failing. Argh. Well, we hopped in the car, put on our masks and went shopping. Only to find that Covid is not only making people sick, you can't find a frig! Businesses are low on product and staff. Our repair man reset our frig and knock on wood, it is currently working. But we decided to play it safe and ordered one to hopefully arrive the end of July.

So there you have it. Just living each day as it arrives. Off I go to enjoy the sunshine and the quiet.  Always, Kit

Hope your fridge lasts until your new one arrives. Chocolate pie sounds so yummy right now too. Janice

My husband was an appliance repairman most of his life. I hate to buy new appliances now, without his experience. For one thing, I always had used ones but used ones hand picked by him. They lasted forever. When we moved into this house I had an avacado green dishwasher, a poppy red fridge, almond washer and dryer and black stove. Eventually they all matched and worked great. And if they didn't I had a repairman in house. It's so delicious to wander in your yard in your nighty, not sure why. Stay safe. Diane

I'm glad to hear you are back to staying home. I kept reading of your ventures to sales and worried about your safety. Now that we know it is is airborne and the micro particles can hang in the air and not just drop down well, time to stay safer.

Besides, less is more right? lol

Nothing cool and fresh about the air I breathe. :/ Ha! But I still try to go out for a walk every day even though it's already 100 F even early in the morning. You have a beautiful yard. I don't think anything about this year is going to be normal and if humans don't get their act together, things are only going to get worse for so many. Take care!

Kit - all of your photos are lovely, but there is something special about the second photo. The wooden slats leading to the stained glass. Love it.

I can relate to you wandering your yard in your jammies - we have such thick woods I could probably wander in less!!! The other day I chased a bunny all around the house in my jammies - I am sure someone would have loved to capture that on video!!!

Sorry to hear about your frig - our neighbors had their freezer full of meat go out - lucky they caught it in time and were able to parcel it out to a bunch of people - I think their new one won't arrive until September!

Enjoy the lovely summer weather, my Montana friend!

I love the glimpses of your yard, especially the stained glass hanging. Such a great place to hang out. Normality is very elusive these days. Hope the fridge keeps chugging away until you can get a new one.

My hubby has a birthday in 13 days. He loves chocolate pie so he gets chocolate pie. HaHaHa ! Plus this year a brunch. I love my home so I spend most days here. I love the sunshine too so I get my Vitamin D. I did not blog for a while and now I cannot stop. I wont let anyone or anything make me stop again. You always have such lovely photos. Thanks for sharing. Enjoy the weekend.

It's really hard to get things like refrigerators, above ground pools, and BIKES! I have to wait until November to get my new bike!
