It’s only early June and already we’re into triple digit heat here in North Texas.  I think it’s going to be a very long summer….

Shelly is the only one brave enough to go out in this heat and sit on the back porch with me….She’s such a sweetie.

I made these great watermelon martinis.  The recipe is here. It calls for simple syrup, and if you don’t have any on hand, you make your own, it takes less than five minutes.  The recipe is here. The martinis were fantastic–kind of a sweet, salty taste.
