Sunday morning coffee

It stormed all night and it's still raining this morning. 
Smells good. Clean and fresh.

I didn't quite get as much accomplished as I'd have liked since mowing the jungle that used to be our lawn, took waaay longer than I expected - and that was with the riding mower, pusher mower and weed whacker being used the whole time. Sadly we are not done yet and with the rain probably wont get it finished today either.
Oh well.
We'll be starting the whole mowing process over next weekend.

Pumpkin Pie AKA house cow AKA bunka
hanging out in the apple tree watching the world go by.
The apple trees were swarming with bees so I can't imagine why she'd think that was a good place to be.

Colton starts his internship tomorrow. 
He's got his bag of supplies all packed and it's loaded with everything a person might need for field work. From hip waders to tweezers for pulling ticks and another bag packed for a day at the office with nice clothes.
I'm so excited for him. 

Have you ever cooked bacon in the oven before?
We tried it and WOW! 
I think that's the only way I'll be cooking bacon for the foreseeable future.
The bacon cooks evenly on both sides, doesn't roll or twist up and the clean up is easy.
Be sure to use a cookie sheet with as high of sides as you can find since removing the pan from the oven could be a tricky proposition if you are even a little clumsy.

I'm shooting for getting the rhubarb froze today and that's about it. 

Have a good one :)

I've cooked bacon in the oven. It is pretty handy! I also do it in the microwave because I'm lazy!

Send some rain our way, but... not this week maybe... we're thinking about mowing hay.

I picked the rhubarb and Bike man made his rhubarb sauce later today.

Too much rain last night. Now just wait for those nasty mosquitoes to show up!

Cooking bacon is the only way to go! TJ and I started doing that a few years ago. Does Colton come home each night or will he RON sometimes?

Hmmmm... Bacon in the over, I'll have to give it a try!
