Surveying the flood damage this morning early.
A lot of mud covering the pasture grass and still some water.
The water got higher than we ever expected it to get from rain upstream from us. #1 son said near the head waters of our creek they got at least six inches of rain in about an hour. Yep !!! that would do it !!!
The cattle were glad to be high and dry this morning as they fought for shade in the barn.
I worked in my sewing shop, cutting out 6 little baby bonnets as I am down to two of these at market.
After lunch I went downstairs to work in my dried herbs awhile. I got all the dried ones in jars and filled the boxes with fresh herbs to start another drying batch.
I had several jars of basil....
Freshly dried herbs are so much richer in fragrance and flavor than the ones in the stores that have years of shelf life.
The storms and rain for today went west of our area thankfully although we were hoping for a brief shower to wash the mud off the pasture grass.
The clouds kept the temperatures in the mid 80's all day but the humidity levels made it very muggy out there.
Hubbie brought in a basket full of tomatoes and peppers tonight from the garden. Our tomatoes are getting a blight even with his constant spraying so they won't last much longer. Even some of the pepper plants had to be pulled up and thrown away as they are starting to wilt with disease.
He pickled 5 jars of hot pepper this evening.
Daughter and her boyfriend came in this evening to pick up a crate for a little dog that appeared at her house earlier today. They had taken it to a vet office to look for an ownership chip but found none.
The dog is a little male Fist.
Hubbie and I went over to #1 son's house tonight to go through some of the things they didn't want anymore as they are packing for their move to #2 son's house.
It was strange to see boxes all over the house. It is amazing how much stuff you accumulate in almost eight years at a place you call home.
We came home and hubbie went to bed while I blogged and waited for the news to come on.
Grateful for a loving Lord who blesses me unconditionally every day. May I strive to be deserving.
Good Night and God Bless.
