Yep, it’s summertime and if you’re like me, time management has taken an extended vacation. Besides, who wants to slave over a hot stove in these humid temps?

Rejection is the Greatest Aphrodisiac

Today turned out to be one of those perfect summer days. I simply cannot describe it any other way. I awoke at 8 a.m. and was greeted by a light breeze and a little summer rain. By the time I was dressed and ready to take the dog for his walk the rain was gone. […]
