Wow is it hot here in Murray, KY. This is my first summer in Kentucky and I don't think I am ready for this heat and humidity. As this radiant sun goes down a bit, we are going to dine on the deck, and yes, the fans are on high to keep the air circulating.
Amaze Me Monday @ Dwellings

Inspire Me Tuesday @ A Stroll Thru Life on Tuesday
The table is set for four with bright multi-colored placemats.
The placemats are topped with plates and salad bowls that also reflect the colors in the placemats. Nothing expensive here, just $Tree prices.
A quick and easy centerpiece was created for the table. A red vase filled with hosta leaves cut from my yard. These leaves also mimic the large leaf pattern on the green section on the placemats.
Two bowls have red centers and two have yellow. This makes an eye-pleasing distribution of color and creates interest for the table.
While the food is finished up, you can see the view of our backyard from the deck. No mountains or lakes, just grass and trees. I do enjoy working in my flower beds as much as possible and have bird feeders hanging from my deck and in the birch trees next to the deck.
If you look closely at the image on the right above, you can see the tractor feeder for the squirrels on the left side of the tree. We put corn out daily to keep the squirrels away from the bird feeders. But as soon as the corn is gone, here they come straight for my bird feeders.
My husband and SIL have been grilling for the meal, and we are ready to eat. My SIL told me earlier in the day that we were having steak and baked potatoes but that menu seemed to grow. We are serving grilled steak, fried shrimp and okra, loaded baked potatoes, and broccoli in cheese sauce. When the guys cook, it is a hearty meal.
Thanks for stopping in for another day of Life in Kentucky - Judy.
