The best surprise of the day
Sunday, July 14, 2013
I woke up several times last night and it was raining. The chance
of rain went from 10% to 30% and then to 60% in a few short hours.
It was a gentle rain that amounted to 9/10th of an inch. My, does
the air smell fresh. The rain quit at 2 and the sun came out but
it was a gentle heat. We did chores a little earlier and poked
around the edges of the garden. It was nice to see the beans
blooming and know that in a few days there will be more to pick.
I made a double batch of beef stew and some buttermilk
biscuits. We have enough for lunch tomorrow and I froze
about half of the batch to give to DS when he comes home
the next time. It should give him a couple days worth of
lunches. Mom just hasn't let go yet LOL! I know he loves
It is raining again and that should continue through the
night. Any we get now will just keep everything growing.
I warned DS1 that he will need to mow at church this week.
He had 2 weeks off as the grass wasn't growing much. He
seemed okay with the idea of another paycheck. Money talks.
Hope you had a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by. HUGS!
