It's June and on the cusp of summer, yet the rainy weather is hiding the blazing sun for now in these parts.  We are getting heavy rain for at least the next week and it's both a blessing and a curse.  There are floods galore throughout most of Texas (poor Houston) but at least we won't be plagued with the drought that we've been suffering from for the past few years.  All of the (fake) Texas lakes should be full in time for summer boating and swimming fun, if you're into that sort of thing (swimming in lakes, I mean).  I know it's wishful thinking for me to hope that the rain washes all of the mosquitoes away but a girl can dream, can't she?

Speaking of dreams, this cute home built in 1915 is ready for the summertime, what with its greenery abound and crisp whites punctuated by splashes of bright colour.  There are a few cushy rocking chairs on the front porch for those of you who like to keep an eye on the neighborhood and a dining table set for a dinner party in the backyard.  I'm still on the look out for little gems like this to share with y'all - now move on down to Texas and bring your boat!
