June– Hot, Hot! SUMMER!!

Jillian here – hope everyone is doing fine. It’s already in the 90s here in sunny NW Florida. It doesn’t feel too bad when the wind is blowing, but man, inside the car is a whole ‘nother story– boiling hot. It’s amazing how much like an inferno (one without flames) it can get inside an auto. Aug and Sept are our two hottest months, so something to look forward to….NOPE!

I recently ordered a book when I saw the author on the Jeopardy quiz show as she intrigued me as a lawyer who wrote thrillers. I just finished reading it and it was okay except there was no one I liked in the whole book. I hate it when I don’t have someone to root for, don’t you? The protagonist was a lawyer and made some super bone-headed moves that even a first year law student knows they shouldn’t do. She was quite unlikeable as well– snobbish and a liar. But I kept reading, so clearly, something was appealing to me, right?

Like Laurie, I enjoyed the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and watched some of the festivities online. What an amazing lady she is. Admirable.

The grandson had his last day of preschool summer party and I love, love this photo of him in the mini pool as all the other children were being dried off. It’s just pure joy!

Happy summer to my sweet Baboo as well as all of you!

Today is Ridiculous

Jillian here. Sorry I am late. My paralegal has been out and this is the second week. She had surgery so we are muddling through doing her job and ours. It’s not been too bad….until today. Today is ridiculous. It is also her birthday and if she was here, it might just be her last one 🙂 (Joking)

As is wont to happen when she is out, I find things I thought were done and done correctly have not been. A case I already won blew up yesterday and I am still dealing with the fallout today. I have to file some response to what the other lawyer filed just to cause issues; a client called with something I thought had already been taken care of and I ended up having to go to the courthouse as well as another lawyer’s office to get something notarized since the paralegal is the only other notary here besides me. AND I can’t notarize my own signature. 🙂

You know that old saying about the “hurrier I go, the behinder I get”- well, that is me…especially today. I’m exhausted.

To bring some cheer, here is my sweet Baboo- first haircut and a day at the water park. Which is which? 🙂

Have a happy June…hoping everyone is less stressed than me!

Summer Recipe

It’s close on to summer now and we’re already having those super hot days here. Afternoon thunderstorms are almost a daily occurrence here too. A lot of sun, a little rain, lightning and thunder make up the days of summer here in Florida. We also have entered, as of June 1, hurricane season.

For those hot days, here’s a summer cooler:

ingredients:

6 lemons
2 quarts of water
sugar to taste- I start with 1/2 cup and test it for tartness- (or you can use Splenda or other substitute)
1 pint of strawberries (de-headed and cut into chunks)

directions:Lemon

Squeeze the juice from the lemons and add to the 2 quarts of water. Add the sugar and after cutting up the strawberries, add the chunks to the mix. You’ll have a lovely strawberry lemonade and the flavors will mix nicely and when you finish your drink, you’ll have some sweet strawberries to munch on. images

variation:

Add the juice of 4 limes for a twist
OR add your favorite liquor for a bit of a kick.

Enjoy your June!
