Summer time / Living is Easy ? / July Give A Way –

Pergola is almost ready. Can’t wait. Thank you Rudy ..


Sun dried tomatoes with fresh garlic and basil in extra virgin olive oil a dash of salt and pepper.

Harvest from the Garden:
Basil, green and yellow squash

The economic times in the country is really not the best. Yet, we are hopeful and carry on .. as usual. We are a resilient bunch and even though we are not as happy with the political climate and all the (empty) promises that were given .. we are still hopeful.

The saying is .. where there is life .. there is hope. And so, we hope, for good health care, more jobs, etc.

This was written by a dear friend and mentor:

Life’s task is to be like an otter, seeking adventure and joy in our
endeavors, instead of being like a beaver, always tied to work that
must be done and feeling guilty when it is not accomplished.

— Sincerely,  Journey Scenthttp://www.journeyscent.com

Quotes for July ~

‘ For him in vain the envious seasons roll –
Who bears eternal summer in his soul.’
– – Oliver Wendell Holmes, The Old Player

‘ Summer is the time when one shed’s one’s tensions with one’s clothes,
and the right kind of day is jeweled balm for the battered spirit.
A few of those days and you can become drunk with the belief –
that all’s right with the world.’
– – Ada Louise Huxtable

‘ Deep summer is when ..
laziness finds respectability. ‘
– – Sam Keen

Summer is here & Father’s Day Winner


Summer time .. Beach, Sun, Surf, playful fun.!!

The garden is lush .. vibrant with all the different shades of green. All we need now is some sun .. need to feel that sun energy on my face .. for sure.

Summer is here .. the ‘rain’ in this part of the world has been a bit overwhelming to say the least. Though my flowers are blooming, the scents are permeating the air .. I actually picked my first hot red pepper, tomatoes have tons of flowers as do the zucchini ..

The pergola is coming along .. though not yet completed .. patience ..

The winner of our Father’s Day Give A Way is ::
Nadine Roelfs of Mankato MN.

For the Summer please remember to hydrate your skin by drinking plenty of water and spraying some hydrosols to refresh you.

One of New York’s Bravest

I just had to blog about my cousin, Dean Tartaro, a New York City Firefighter. The head line reads:

Bravest save 5 in daring rescue from Coney Island cruise nightmare.

To read this article please visit: New York Daily News page

It is still a humid hot day here in the Bronx. My garden is so lush and blooming.Today a baby Blue Jay fell out of his nest and the parents were very loud and boisterous about it. I gently picked up the baby and placed him on a fountain that is not in use here. He seemed ok .. just frightened.

The parent Blue Jays were letting me know that they were not leaving their little one, so I quietly went in the house, waited around 20 minutes, went back out to check and the baby Blue Jay was gone.

I’m hoping the parents took him back to the nest. One never knows with nature. So I will hope for the best.!!

Be sure to care for your skin, especially when in the sun. Moisturize and remember to use sunblock, drink lots of liquids and hydrate your skin when ever possible.

My favorite to use is the Geranium Hydrosol or Rose Hydrosol, to read about hydrosols, please visit our page: SunRose Hydrosol Page.

Also, for sunburns, rashes and moisturizing your face our cooling Aloe Vera & Seaweed Gel is just wonderful for your skin. For more information please visit: SunRose Aloe Vera & Seaweed Gel.

The lazy days of summer are upon us .. or ‘summer hours’ .. it is so important to remember to take some time for yourself and rest.

until next time,
Rosanne
