Rain, Rain, Rain

"Raaaaiiiin Go Away. Sing nother day." That’s what you’ll hear if you stop by our house this week. The poor little Sweet Pea has been standing at the living room window singing that all week long. It’s pouring here. Which is good for the garden but not great for little girls that want to play outside. We've snuck outside every time the rain has let up for a few minutes but she's not thrilled with that. Makes me afraid of what winter will be like around here. I better start thinking of some new activities to keep us busy and happy.

I know my posting this week has been scarce but I'm just exhausted. We're still adjusting to our new routine around here and it is taking a toll. But the rest of the week (and this weekend) will be much better. I have quite a few things in the works and should have some fun completed projects in the next few days. Tonight though I'm just going to be sitting here on the computer and looking at everything you all have been doing.

Just so this isn't a post without a picture I included a picture of the world's largest okra. Okay maybe not the world's largest, but it's certainly huge. That tiny little round thing in the picture is a quarter. Needless to say that one didn't fit in the jar!


  1. oh, i have never tasted one! it does look good though... almost like a long pepper. is is sour? i always thought it would taste sour like.. :S

  2. If you pickle them they are kind of sour, like a pickle lol. But otherwise they really aren't. At least I don't think so. I haven't even eaten any yet this year, just pickled them so far. I might have to cook some this weekend. BTW if you are going to have some to eat don't let them get this big. They aren't as good when they get huge like that. They should be about the size of your finger to be really good.

  3. oh yes, i'll have to get some at the store here and try them out. i'll have to go find some recipes for this though, but i will try them :) thanks for the tips :)

  4. When you slice it open it kind of looks like your fabric.
