Andrea's Picnic - CK #97

Hi my friends.  I hope you're having a great week!  The weather is finally turning Summer - warm and sunny. Sure hope the monsoon season is over for this year. Of course that means I'll have to start watering the flower beds, but I can handle that. tI have been able to start walking again. I don't walk outside - too hot. I work across the street from The Galleria Mall so I just walk across the street and then walk the Mall for 30 minutes. Feels good getting back into it.  Friday I have allergy testing scheduled first thing in the morning. Hope that they can figure out what I'm allergic to so the doctor can figure out what to do for it.

So with the talk of Summer, that leads me into our Creative Knockouts challenge for this week. The theme is Summer Fun.
