First rain of the season.
We had our first rain last evening and into last night. Had said it would only be a shower, but no it came down quite hard for a period of time. Very nice, and the air was fresh and crisp for our walk around the lake this morning. We also had lots of bread to give away at the center, unlike last week when there was very little. The people was quite pleased to get four plus loaves. I don't know what they do with it all. I can hardly use a loaf in a week. But perhaps they have large families or give to neighbors. It was nice to say, take more if you like. Also got a lot of stuff taken by the local charity truck, after they forgot our street last week. Glad that I had the stuff covered, with the rain we got!!! I also got a package off to the great grandson, So I had a very productive morning. Even got my ingredients for my dinner for tomorrow as it is Tuesday and my son and granddaughter are here for dinner. Some days just go the way you want. :-) My friend at the center also brought me some lovely red tomatoes from his garden. They are yummy!! Nothing like home grown tomatoes. They are great to just eat, or put in a lovely salad. I can remember eating them by the apron full at my Mom's garden. All you needed was a shaker of salt and that was heaven!!! I do miss them and their wonderful garden, those green beans, okra, corn, etc were just yummy. I bet they are in charge of the heavenly garden spot. Makes me smile just to think of them doing so. Well, on second thought, my Dad is probably off leading a few new people around the area. He loved to go and he didn't stay in any one spot long. Well, I'll leave you with that picture!! Antique Rose
