Bikers Greet Misty Across the Cul-de-sac

I wanted to use the word cul-de-sac  on the blog ever since I’ve been visiting the family. Just don’t write or use that word in my daily life in the city.  Nice for safe bike riding after supper.

Three out of four took a break to greet the neighbor’s lovely dog, Misty.  We sat in the driveway and watched until the sun went down and it was time to come in and get ready for bed.  Although it was a hot day, the evening temp dropped and it was a perfect summer evening.


What Flavor is Summer?

The berries from the Farmer’s Market- blueberries for pancakes and muffins and the huge black ones like jewels and the strawberries  and raspberries… some for preserves. Juicy peach.  Cherries from Chelan. Or the brief sour ones.   Melons.   Zucchini and eggplant and basil right off the plants in your DIL’s garden. The sweet corn from the farm stand.  Just back from Columbus OH and missing the family so Steve and I drove to the retro theatre the Oaks in Oakmont- my favorite movie theatre in the area with spacious leg room and a big screen.   We saw the documentary Buck (stunning photography of the west)  and afterward we got ice cream cones (this is a single!) at Brr-Kees Homemade Ice Cream Stand, smooth and creamy and delicious.  My summer flavor is coffee ice cream.  Shot with the phone.  Extended the feeling of summer vacation and I didn’t think about the start of the new school year in 3 days time.

A generous single scoop of coffee ice cream!
