It's been a rainy, wet week around here. On Wednesday we got 4 inches of rain in half an hour and our area saw the worst flooding since what is referred to around here as "The Flood" in 1985. The 8 year old, his friend and I were in the theater watching Despicable Me 2 (go see it!!!) when the storm started. As we were leaving the theater parking lot, I realized the only road leading out of the parking lot was flooded at the intersection. Fortunately for us, it was no so flooded that I couldn't make a right hand turn and get to higher ground. After that, I learned later, we managed to literally skirt all the flooded areas all the way home. I'm not overly religious, but I do believe we got home safely only by the grace of God.
|Fennel, cantaloupe, corn, eggs, garlic, yellow plums, zucchini and squash, peaches, tomatoes, and broccoli.|
I'm also making freezer pickles this week from my mom's tried and true recipe. My friend Valeria gave me tons of cucumbers from her garden, so I only had to buy the onions, sugar, and vinegar.
