Alabama Produce

Freshly back from our trip home, I'm still numb from driving. We do, however, have plenty of fruit to hold us over so I won't have to go to the grocery tonight. Just look at these gorgeous peaches and blueberries we picked up on the ride home. My friend brought us this HUGE watermelon (which we never cut open, obviously) along with some boiled peanuts. I prefer roasted ones, myself, hehe. I think I may make a peach cobbler tomorrow. I'll keep you posted if I do. And, of course, blueberry/lemon muffins. . . yummy yummy (yummy, I've got love in my tummy--remember that one?).

Mom was glad to see us and says the week went by so fast. You wouldn't have known that by her demeanor during our daily phone conversations. (I felt guilty the entire time.) I'm happy she did fine on her "own." Bev has lost weight and looks pitiful but was so happy to see us too. I think I will take her back to the vets on Monday and see what they say. The rest of the animules are fine--glad to see us.

We had a wonderful time; but as I always say, it is SO good to be home. I look forward to sleeping in my own bed (the one at the beach gave me a back ache) and having all my lovely things around me. I have so much to unpack and look through (mail), but I'm just too tired to do it tonight. The hub has been in Hong Kong since Tuesday and is now on his way to Singapore. He'll be out for another few weeks (pout). So, you see, I can take my sweet time in getting my junk organized. (grin)

We brought some sand home with us this time. We normally forget. The kid has already made a little summerscape for us to enjoy. These are purchased shells, mind you. I'm going to do something with our "found" ones tomorrow.

This is a view from our room when a storm was coming through yesterday. It was amazing to watch from this height (19th floor). Wow. Simply magnificent. The lightening would crash into the water and the sound would come right into our rooms, instantly. It was wonderful. (You know how much I LOVE storms.) The area really needed the rain so we were happy to stay in for bit and just watch it. There is nothing quite like a storm at the beach. Is it not breathtaking?

Well, off to bed. I'm beat. Have lots to share when I awake! Hope everyone is well!

Good to hear you're home safe and sound. Thanks for the lovely photos, particularly of the storm clouds. I love storms too and we don't get many in Paris. Get some rest!

I love storms too, especially if there is thunder and lightening involved. I'm sure I would feel differently if it got dangerous. My Aunt actually had a bolt of lightening pass through her living room once in Houston. That's a little too close for me.
