Traveling Tote ~ Fun in The Sun
Welcome to a special summer edition of The Tales of the Traveling Tote, all about "summer fun" with our traveling tote.
It's been a busy summer here. We took a family vacation in the spring to the Gulf coast.
Early summer found us having the exterior of our home painted and window seals replaced.
Not much "fun in the sun" happening!
With all the work here the only change you would notice is the color of the front door.
Benjamin Moore Silver Gray. A subtle, barely there color that hints at what's inside. I really love this color change.
Fun in the Sun
I don't think these guys think so!
Work is finished and this is my summer favorite place. Early morning for coffee and my computer or a magazine or book.
A special weekend for"summer fun," our grandson Connor turned eleven this summer. We enjoyed a birthday party weekend before they left for the Florida Keys.
Fun in the Sun ~ Huntsville
The Rocket City
Sightseeing, Shopping and Hot!
Shopping for Gifts at a garden shop. Out of the sun, nice and cool!
Fourth of July ~ Fun in the Sun
One of the best things about summer are the Farmer's Markets. I love cooking with fresh so I go often. We have two big markets locally, twice weekly. One of my favorites are tomatoes. This year they are the best I've seen in years. So juicy and thin skinned makes for delicious salads, soups and sauces not to mention the southern special, a tomato sandwich.

Fun in the Sun ~ Ice Cream
Late in the afternoon is a wonderful time to sit outside with a treat. When I saw this no-churn ice cream recipe I knew I wanted to try it. And, am I glad I did! You won't believe how creamy and delicious not to mention easy. I found this recipe at Kitty's Kozy Kitchen so I hope you'll pop over for the recipe. The only change I made was using the fruit I had on hand, strawberries and mangos rather than Kitty's blackberries.
Lots of "fun in the sun!"
It's hard to believe July is soon ending and August is knocking. It will soon be all things fall and I'm so not ready for pumpkins! I think there will be more summer and it will most definitely be hot!
