Harvest has been slow here between raindrops. The farms around here all received over 2.5 inches last week according to my NEXRAD Rainfall Report from Bill Northcutt's Spatial Rainfall Consulting maps.
We had a strange weather phenomenon yesterday about this time. The big orange sun was coming up in the east about the time I heard a big clap of thunder overhead. I looked outside and there was a partial rainbow to the northwest. That is very unusual and made me think of thunder snow events in the past. That could be in our future, too!
It was too wet to cut beans yesterday but a few farmers got a few cut. They were wet for sure. No one has really switched to corn yet so mostly, the combines just sat yesterday.
I just put a beef roast in the crockpot for supper(dinner.) Anyone got a favorite spice blend for it? I just used black pepper and garlic powder but I am going to look around, it needs some kind of salt but I don't like table salt or seasoning salt. I see I already took the easy way out. I wonder what Stacy would do.
Our daughter in law Stacy is a registered dietitian. She was commenting about which restaurants had the "friendliest" healthy food for children and we encouraged her to start a blog. She has and you can find it here!
I encouraged her to give WordPress a look since you can own your own space and content there and that is what she ended up choosing. I wished I had done that 3 years ago because now Google owns all my content here.
Congratulations to Stacy on her new blog and I know it will go well for her. It is amazing how many people write blogs today and it is one of my most favorite things to do and read. Lots of good information is contained in people's stories!
If you start a blog, let me know so we can share it here. I know a few of you who blog and have you on my blog favorites. I am always willing to add more.
