First day of July brings the first named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season.
Early this morning Arthur was named and looks to spoil a lot of fourth of July beach celebrations all along the east coast.
This morning after a quick early trip to Walmart to pick up some canning jar lids I got the chores done, had breakfast then went back out in the tropical feeling early morning to walk.
The high for today was 88 and early this morning it was really hot. I pulled weeds for the chickens as I was ending my walk and felt like I sweated a gallon just doing that at 10am.
Our garden is doing great so far. The rains of late really gave it a boost and we are now getting, squash, cucumbers,peppers and the green beans need to be picked.
They were crossing the Bay Bridge which is the longest bridge on the East coast on their was to Chessapeak Bay.
As for me it was back to the garden for more bean picking when Rebekah came up. Hubbie took care of Evy while we picked about a bushel and a half of Half Runner Beans.
I see a lot of bean breaking in our future !!!!
Aaron came over and helped her carry them home, I kept the 1/2 bushel as that is all hubbie and I will get broke tonight anyway.
After chores and supper I baked 4 pound cakes and he started breaking the beans. When I went in to help he said he thought he had "bean" elbow from all the breaking. We decided we were very appreciative to have help from Rebekah with all this gardening this year. She is feeling much better today thankfully.
As I sat out in the sunroom this afternoon I marveled at the blooms on this Peace Lily out there.
Thankful to God for the blessings of this first day of July, may He be glorified in all that I do.
Good Night and God Bless.
