Finally our schedule allowed me to get back to the farmer’s market. I got some lovely cantaloupes and garlic, shallots and tomatoes. But what I love the best is I gave my camera to my daughter and let her shoot away. Long after we have eaten all the goodies I will have these pictures.
We have had a horribly hot summer this year. In fact it is the officially now the 2nd hottest summer ever. We have been above 100 more days than not this month. Today I heard that we are the 4th hottest place in America. But this past Sunday we got our first rain in over a month. It didn’t last long but it was long enough for my kids to go out and DANCE.
We made a trip to the creek last week, it was a nice break from the heat. The creek is spring fed and the temperature of the water runs in the 50’s. We had a great time with our friends, and in true form even ran into some of our other friends there. My kids think we can’t go anywhere without running into someone either Deacon G or I know. I would like to keep it that way too.
While we had fun here this is not the funny picture. I am still not sure what my son is doing in this picture.
This is our forecast. I am praying for a Hurricane for this weekend.
Tropical Storm Dan is in the Gulf of Mexico. It has a chance of developing into a hurricane. Now I don’t want a big damaging hurricane to hit Texas. But a nice strong tropical storm will help move this weather system, bring some rain to the parched land and relieve us from the heat we have been experiencing for the last month and half.
