Hiding from the heat

With a high of 91-degrees in Santa Rosa today, none of us was thrilled about venturing into the heat. Instead, we all three hid inside and tried to stay cool. Mama and I visited our garden once in the evening, but it was still in the high-80s, so Paisley wanted nothing to do with our…

The two of them got a chance to…
