Cold Salds and On going Heat Wave



It was far to hot to spend time in the gardens , or to bake so I have been in the kitchen making cold salad.
I cut prep and mix and Fred stays close by and supervises ( he gets that from Bob)

About two weeks ago we had two mini splits installed, just in time for the heat wave. What a blessing!!
The farm house is cool and comfortable and I can not say enough about the very professional install.
