Mid-Summer Notes

Here in the K.C. area, we have been in HOT weather for the past two weeks now. Mid to upper 90's. I'm focusing on staying cool. The air-conditioning went out in my car last fall and I was so hoping it was just a leak in a hose somewhere...It wasn''s the compressor and frankly, the cost of repairing it is far more than I want to invest in the car at this point. In the meantime, it makes for some long HOT rides. Come on fall!!
We are in the process of preparing our house for painting. We knew it was going to need to be painted when we moved in 7 or so years ago. It's been kind of fun picking out the colors and I'm finding I'm usually drawn to Cape Cod colors....gray-blues, clean whites, dark blues, and cranberry. So that's what we're going with. A gray-blue for the main house, crisp-clean white for the trim and porch rails, charcoal blue for the porch floor,and a dark cranberry for the front door. I can't wait to see it done!
