My oldest had a poster about the declining Bee population, and she had 1 photo considered for state. My oldest son is competing for 4h this year, and he has a photograph also being considered for state fair! :0)

Still a tiny bit sick with my cold and ended up with a migraine today..Slept it off and now trying to get ready for the week with some cleaning and meal planning!

It's supposed to be CRAZY hot, (just in time for the 4h fair this year)

    I'm green over your zinnias -- those are a favorite & I didn't bother this year.

You Are Beautiful

Positive Self-Talk Sayings

I’m in control of my own thinking and I choose to think thoughts that make me feel good.
Every day my life gets better.
I grow healthier with each passing day.
All good things come my way.
I am happy just because.
I laugh easily and often.
I am full of life, energy and laughter.
The only thing I need to feel happy is a single breath.
I love my life today and it will be even better tomorrow.
I am able to feel joy and happiness no matter what anyone else does, thinks or says.
Happiness is my birthright.
I’m willing to speak kindly to myself.
I am free of old thinking habits that no longer serve me.
I find joy in the simple things in life.
I’m grateful for ME.

Just pulled the 1st crooked neck zucchini off the plant! I try to harvest them when they are small. :0) I found a bunch of Japanese beetles on my green bean plants so I did treat them. I wasn't sure at first what was eating the leaves. We're in the middle of a heat wave with lots of humidity, so I really hope it rains!! Went and watered the community garden, so that's good.

Happy 4th, everyone!!
