What season is it?

azalea, confused

My new azalea bush seems to think it is spring.  This bit of pink caught my eye yesterday, and I assumed a piece of paper had blown into it.  No, there were two tiny blooms that I had not noticed!  This poor thing is mighty confused.  Hang on…cooler weather will be here!

Joan and I scored some fresh Silver Queen corn at the farmer’s market yesterday, along with eggplant, squash and peaches.  Yum.  Sounds like a good meal to me, complete with dessert!

Dick got the salmon all rubbed and marinated overnight.  This morning he has to knock off the rub, lay the fish on paper to dry out under a fan for 4 hours before smoking them.  I sure hope they are good!  I’ll let ya know.

So my affair is Beginning Day for my sorority group, Beta Sigma Phi, after taking the summer off.  Well, our group just “slows down.”  Most chapters don’t meet over the summer, but we do, simply because we want to see each other.

I think we are ready for everyone, and if not, it will be OK.  This is a NO WORRY ZONE.  I have declared it.  All will be well here.  There will be friends, perhaps some family, lotsa food for sure, so good times will roll!  WYWH (for those of you who are so far away!).

Life is good, despite the weather up nawth.  Stay safe, y’all!

I had a few dozen dwarf azaleas in Florida and those darn things bloomed nearly all year long.

Good Sunday morning to you Sandy.
I bet your sorority group 'affair' will go well and be lots of fun.

Fresh corn and peaches are two of my favorite things!

Hope Dick's salmon turns out moist and delicious too:)

I wish I were there too honey. I know a good time will be had by all. That's just the way you two roll.

Have a terrific day. Big hugs. :)

The "affair" was lovely and the salmon was yummy, as were the ham and all the "covered dishes"! (And the wine...)
Maybe next weekend I will make it to the Farmer's Market! There's no Saturday morning Zumba due to the holiday weekend, so I will just plan to go veggie-shopping instead!
