And what do you normally do when it is a holiday weekend? Spend time with family, go on a mini vacation, have friends over for a BBQ. You know, take time off and have some fun. Right?
Me? I decide to write a post.
I know. I need to get a life. Lol.
Okay, it’s obvious, I don’t care as much as I should about the blogging. And I know I should care. I do care. Really, I do. But, you see, I’ve been preoccupied with the edits. Lots of edits. Lots and lots of edits. As in, terminal editing. I think it’s a disease!
Will it ever end?
At some point, I am sure I will have to let this baby fly on its own. Yet, for now, there’s still much work to be done. And so I press on.
Meanwhile, summer rushed in while I’ve busied myself with the writing project. Long, hot summer days are now spent in air-conditioning for the most of us. Unless you’re at the beach.
Oh yes, the beach. I really miss the beach. Have I mentioned that already?
How’s it going over there, Murphy?
(See, I left the bird behind, excuse me, mascot at the beach. He was better off. There’s a beautiful wildlife sanctuary along the coast in Huntington Beach. Truly he’s more suited for that environment. I mean, when’s the last time you saw a pelican in the desert? I thought not.)
Murphy has agreed to be my foreign correspondent for all things beachy and coastal in SoCal.
Are you there, Murphy?
Yes, yes, I’m here. Quite nice, actually. No air-conditioning in my neck of the woods.
Don’t rub it in Murph, okay?
Sorry. I’ve noticed a number of posts on Facebook containing ocean waves on your FB page Karen. Here’s one I especially like.

(See, this is why I left that crazy pelican behind.)
Okay Murphy, we’ve got the picture. Thank you.
Anything else that I can help you with? Just let me know. I am at your disposal. A Picture of hot babes in bikinis, perhaps? Or I could send over a shot or two of our beautiful weather. Maybe a picture of a couple of buff surfers would do the trick?
That’s quite enough Murphy. Thank you.
So, what was I saying? Oh yes. Summer is in full swing. And you know what that means?
Here’s the scoop. Summer means Ice Cream.
Blueberries are just the cherry on top.
Why do I say that?
Well, can you imagine summer without Ice Cream?
I didn’t think so.
Picture a glorious hot summer day with a creamy, dreamy scoop or two of your favorite flavor.
See what I mean? My mouth is salivating! What do you think Murphy?
Does it come in fish flavor?
(This is what I get for asking.)
Why don’t you go for a short walk…Oh, never mind Murphy! Just skedaddle. Adios!
Anyway, my personal favorite is Straus Family Creamery’s Organic Vanilla Bean Ice Cream. It’s tradition back to the basics. In other words, perfection. And for those of you that are sensitive, it’s certified kosher, gluten free and Non-GMO Project Verified.
It’s like fresh churned Ice Cream!
Then add in fresh, organic blueberries on top and you get my drift.
Happiness on a hot summer day at the McFarland’s.
So what to you think? What is your favorite Ice Cream flavor? How’s your summer going thus far? Have any plans for a family vacation? What fun things help you and your family stay cool over the summer?
Cheers everyone! I hope that life is treating you well. And as always, thank you so much for all your support and wonderful comments!
