When I was young, I knew how to deal with the heat
My Mommy would take us to our Grandparents (in Missouri) every summer. We were a couple of California city kids enjoying country summers. Some of my favorite childhood memories are from those long, hot summers. I was trying to think of a time when I didn't notice the heat of summer and didn't have air conditioning. Those summers seemed perfect. Probably because I didn't wear clothes. I remember spending most of my time at the creek catching fish in coffee cans. I also spent a lot of time on the porch swing. I love these photos, they take me back to a time when I had no cares or worries (or air conditioning) and I was just fine without it.
Pretty Jane, I'm so happy you posted about making Dan's pasta. The Meyer Lemon Cake is so so so good. It's from Dominoe magazine. You'll love it. I promiss.
