These Boots Were Made For Ridin’.

It’s officially summer.  Hence, my laziness in writing today.  I mean, it’s the heat.  It’s sweltering.  And, it makes me want to turn down the A/C to arctic temps, snuggle up to a ridiculously long movie like Benjamin Buttons, and eat a box of Junior Mints.  Anyhoo, here is a glimpse of Anna’s horse camp experience.

She truly is a country girl.  Who also enjoys serving tea, sword fighting, and being a fashion trailblazer.

More pics to come tomorrow. 

Happy Summer Y’all.  Stay inside.  Or in a pool.  It’s hooootttttt.

The Friday Five

Five things you should try, buy, watch, read and enjoy this summer:

  1. Try Maurine’s Salsa.
    1 28 oz. can whole tomatoes
    1 tbs. jalapenos from a jar
    1 tbs. jalapeno liquid (or as much as you like)
    1 can green chiles
    8 green onions
    12-14 springs cilantro (adjust as you like)
    1 fresh tomato
    1 tsp. garlic salt (plus a little more)
    dash of white pepper     Put all ingredients in a food processor/blender.  Voila!
  2. Girls, buy these metallic flip flops from Old Navy.  I am wearing the gold version with everything this summer.  And, the best part?  They are only $5.  Sa-weet.

    Guys, buy Men’s Health magazine.  It appears to be the most comprehensive and informative magazine out there for men.  Unless, of course, you are like Kris – in which case if it doesn’t have propellers or a turbine-powered engine on the front, it is useless.  But, I do sneak one in the bathroom whenever possible.

  3. Watch Dan In Real Life.  No, you won’t find any spiritual significance or a heightened sense of self-awareness – or maybe you will.  But, I found it a well done film.
  4. Read Marley & Me: Life and Love with World’s Worst Dog by John Grogan if you haven’t already.  I was a late bloomer on this one.  I’m about to begin reading In the Grip of Grace by Max Lucado.  I think it’s going to be a good one.  Of course, what doesn’t Lucado write well?
  5. Enjoy a summer sunset with friends or the sprinker with your kids (unless you are in Georgia and under the enforcement of a water ban.)  Take an opportunity to experience life with those you love.

“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time. “  – John Lubbock
