An early morning sudden wake up had me wishing for more sleep. About 5am I heard the front door close and as hubbie came back into the bedroom he said he had just been down the bank in front of our house to check to see who was in a truck backed up to #2 son's house. It was a couple of son's friends picking up some water skis. He said they started yelling out who they were when they first saw him in fear he would shoot them. We later had a good laugh but at 5 am nothing is funny !!
Got a late start to market but stayed steadily busy all day. Daughter was there to help most of the day until she left to direct a friends wedding. Here is a picture of her with the bride.
Another hot afternoon kept customers scarce after lunch but a few braved the heat to pick up cakes and bread.
On my way home I picked up baking supplies and fresh vegetables. Just after we unloaded my van the skies darken and then opened up to pouring rain and high winds for over a hour.
Not much thunder or lightening but side ways pounding rain was enough to make me want to run for cover until it was over !
These are some pics of the aftermath.
Our three rows of corn now flat !!
Along with my Lambs Ear plant.
Speaking of weather today history was made as the 4th named tropical storm formed in the gulf, Debbie is drenching the west coast of Florida right now but the predicted track will take it into Texas. Oil rigs in the gulf are being cleared of workers which means we will probably be paying more for a gallon of gas next week.
After touring the farm for damage we did the evening chores ,slogging around in the mud and then had fresh corn and steamed squash with a small grilled chicken breast for supper.
The evening has been a relaxing one and I'm tired and ready for an extra early bedtime to make up for the 5am wake up call !!
Grateful to God tonight for the rain and for sparing us from major damage during today's storm.
Good Night and God Bless.
