We Got Rain!!
Weatherman said we had a 50% chance of thunderstorms today and they arrived this afternoon. We got the feeding, milking and watering done early this morning. Came in for breakfast then went back out to rake the dog pen and Killer's pen. The heat factor yesterday was 101F and today it was getting close to that so we went to the neighbors pool after delivering some eggs. The kids swam and I visited with Vicki and then listened to a book on tape. After swimming I took the kids to CiCi's Pizza where we all enjoyed the salad bar and pizza buffet. On the way home it started storming and we sure were glad to see those rain drops! Since it was storming I gave each of the kids a book and told them to read for awhile. Julie was reading a Trixie Belden mystery and got sleepy. Zack was reading Ghost Stories of North Carolina and really got into his book. We did the evening chores in the rain but it was nice. They are watching a movie and I am cooking supper. Finally able to pick some squash to cook. I diced squash, potatoes,onion and saute in olive oil with minced garlic and parsley. I could eat this by itself but we are having pinto beans, cornbread and chicken. Tonight we will settle down with movies and books and listen to the wonderful sound of rain. Have a great weekend!
