Five on Friday

Friday is here and I'm joining Amy again for her "5 on Friday" blog hop!  

Here are a few highlights of the week!

We dropped our sweet girl off for a week at RYLA. (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards.)  I know she is having a fantastic time because she actually touched base.  TWICE!  

I had to share this card she gave me for my birthday.  I'm sorry, but this totally sums me and my sisters up.  Seriously, they need to make a card with THREE critters on it.  True dat.

I just harvested my basil 2 weeks ago and had to do it again.  This stuff is super happy right now!  I made 24 more basil puree cubes for the freezer.  Takes at least 2 hours to do it but soooo worth it!  (I have directions on my recipe link if you want to see....)

 I've been dragging hoses all summer!  The rains stopped hitting us hard in June and with the heat in the high 90's and low 100's, our yard would be toast if I didn't water.  That being said, our yard and landscaping is looking so pretty.  

We may make one more bed in the front to get rid of some more is soooooo thirsty!  Landscaping is hard work but takes up less water once done.

My first zinnia of the summer!

Last but not least this:
I mean, seriously.  NOW I UNDERSTAND!
