Oh it’s been a busy week!
It’s been raining almost non-stop for weeks, which has caused serious flooding in some parts of the city. They’re calling this a 100 year flood, but weird weather things seem to be happening a lot more frequently lately… Thankfully, we’re not in a flood zone, but I’ve still had to work at keeping the basement dry and the sump pump running. So far, so good, and the forecast is no rain for next week – yay!
And I’m afraid my grandfather-in-law is in the hospital. He too looks like he’s going to be ok, but he has to stay there for a while. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m very grateful for hospitals, the services they provide and all the dedicated, over-burdened people who work there, but having to stay there still sux, and that goes double for hospital food. Soooo, I might have snuck in a batch each of chocolate chip-pecan and oatmeal-raisin-coconut cookies.
Gardening has been non-existent. It just hasn’t stopped freaking raining long for me to get out there and plant something. Besides, even if I did plant something, it’d probably drown. Well, maybe rice would be ok, but I don’t think it’d like our usual three feet of snow this December. 😉
Between all this happy insanity, I’ve managed to actually cook a few things to supplement what’s already stashed in my freezer. I know it sounds cliché, but weeks like this make me very grateful for everything I have and remind me that right now, I have everything I need. Blessings to you and yours.
