|I moved the vintage pie carrier back to the stack of vintage baskets, at least for now...|
Speaking of which, thank you to all who have hung in there with me as I've experienced computer and health issues. I want to comment on other blogs but it isn't always possible at the moment.
It has been incredibly hot and humid for this time of year but the cold front has come through and I awoke in the middle of the night to the sound of falling rain! So good after such a long dry spell.
So... what has been happening in my World?
When Christopher was six years old, he went through a phase where he wanted to be a tornado chaser. His Christmas gifts that year included a Weather Channel calendar, a video about a famous Weather Channel storm chaser, and a big book about weather facts. I think he still has the book.
That was also the year Twister came out. His sister and I took him to see the movie at the theater... during a Tornado Watch! Talk about realism. It is still one of our favorite movies but I watch it on TV where they have taken out the bad language.
I watched it again this week and thoroughly enjoyed it, especially the parts that have become part of our family vocabulary. Like... "Bob's road". ;)
I love this old wooden bowl inherited from my mother-in-law.
It has a flat base so it is perfect for holding seasonal stuff and candles.
From the Farm
Hubby ran into the organic farmer at church Sunday morning. He told him to come out to the farm later in the day as he had a lot of veggies available.
The above picture shows only the veggies I washed immediately (the lemon verbena was from my own garden). I later cleaned a lot of corn, which has declined in quality with the heat and drought.
But there was still a lot of good corn to eat and we threw the cobs that were substandard (for humans) out to the forest where I am certain they provided yummy snacks for the squirrels.
What a blessing his helping the farmer out has been for all of us.
Pretty kitty... :)
Reading: I have no pictures of my reading this week... mostly a stack of long ago (1990s) Victoria magazines I pulled out of the vintage suitcases where I keep them.
Decaf Candy Cane Lane tea (or apple cider K-cups) and Victoria were what I needed this week. My head is still stuffy and I'm still a tad on the weak side after weeks on the sofa. But on the mend!
