The hay is cut and on the ground as of yesterday afternoon. O Wise One and I both got up early this morning and spent several hours in the garden weeding, watering and all around gardening chores until the heat ran us inside seeking water and cooler air.
I managed to get all my jars of beets washed and labeled and put in the pantry.
While I was cooking the noon meal and supper I managed to get some laundry washed and O Wise One put it out on the line for me. Can ya tell?
We had red beans and rice and some zucchini smothered in onions and bacon bits and cornbread.
I grated the extra zucchini and made 2 loaves of bread for snacking on.
During the summer we like the routine of eating a noon meal and then resting for a couple hours in the heat of the day to return to chores later in the day when it is cooler. Leftovers are warmed for the supper meal if anyone wants them. This time of year there is always some veggies for snacking and salad fixins in the fridge as well. We just don't like coming in at dark which is after 9:00 pm and eating a huge meal.
With the meal dishes clean and the laundry on the line I might get a little computer time in before we return to the garden and chores.
And just our luck as we get hay on the ground and laundry on the line we hear thunder to the north toward the Iowa line. Somebody's getting some rain... just not us. Not Yet!
