This summer what books and series are you reading? As usual I am reading Carolyn Hart Mysteries but I am also trying to read as many reread Laura Levine Mysteries as possible. The heat is a real killer here in MO this year and last Saturday we got up to 107 for an actual temp.

I really am using the crockpot more this summer. A little while ago I put a roast in the crockpot to have for supper. My daughter and her husband have major car problems right now. Plus she is working late for the next two months so any suggestions on recipes that are simple quick that I can throw in the crockpot (their central air needs work) that an 11 year old and a 4 year old will eat would be good. The boys will eat anything but all my creative energy is going into writing this week.LOL

I miss my yardswing and I hope to have Frank bring it up the next times he comes for a visit. Finally do you have a favorite summer color to wear? Maybe more than one that makes you feel really good when you wear it? Oddly enough this year for me is lime green and I seem to lean towards yellow.

  1. I always love orange and yellow for summer. Bright and happy colors.
