Choa decided to cut down a couple of trees that were close to the shop. Since we have been having high winds and rains he did not want the trees to fall and hit the roof of the shop. Well, he did manage to get the trees down.
Of course along with the trees coming down he also took out the power lines and poles. What a fun morning 🙂
Just a touch of rain last night…….ALL NIGHT ! The road out in front of the house got flooded again. Water as you can see is about hip deep. The lower part of the driveway is completely under water.
This is the pond in front of the house and it is , at this time, about 18″ from cresting. I do not think it will make it though.
We use a well system here, not that you could find it. The top of the well and the cover to the well are right underneath that blue PVC pipe.. See it 🙂 This will be fun the next couple of days getting it cleaned out. When the rainy season is over I will fix that problem but now I just have to deal with it.
Did you know that you have to burn the hair off of rats before you can cook them. I did not know that. Yukkkk
Choa was nice enough to make breakfast for me yesterday. He knows I like soft scrambled eggs, crisp bacon and grits. He brings me the plate and the first thing I notice is that there is a lot of bacon on it and fried crisp. I figured he was trying to finish off the package so I didn’t think too much more about it until I started to eat it. It just did not taste right at all. I tried another piece, a small one because the last thing I want to do is get sick, and it was no different. Better safe than sorry so I just left it and finished the rest of the plate.
That afternoon I was getting hungry again so I thought I would make a sandwich from some of the lunch meats I had bought at Big C a couple of days before. I looked and looked but it was gone. Have you ever eaten crispy fried corned beef for breakfast. Don’t , it is terrible.
Choa and I had barely made it back home when we had company drop by with a Welcome Home Gift. Little Bit had been fishing and brought me his catch of the day. He was able to hold on to the smaller one but the other one scared him and it got a way. Oh well. It is good to be home 🙂
