Hello from Soggy Haven. Remember all the giggling on The Great British Baking Show about soggy bottoms and how no one wants one? ッ Of course they are referring to pie crusts, but it translates well to my corner of the globe these days. I don't know what the extended forecast has in store for me, but the one up to now has been wet. Very. How's it going in your corner?
(I may have been baking too many Rhubarb Custard pies lately. I feel like making another, too. They are so good. No soggy bottom for this pie.)
This post is a mish-mash of things as it feels as if I have a lot to share none of which is necessarily related. First, you may wonder how I'm doing. Meh...let's not fret over that. I'm breathing. Praying. Believing. It may be that that's the best I can say for a while. I do have many unfinished projects to occupy my mind and time so that's good.
Currently, I am cooling my jets at The Ponderosa for a mandatory 30-day time as I wait for the tenants to leave. Maine is an ultra-friendly tenant state. I feel "put upon" as a landlady. I will never be a landlady again. The things I have endured at these tenants' hands would make a long, long list. To think that I used to bake these folks cookies! Ha! I wish them well and also gone.
Good news! Remember a few posts ago when I showed the kids' house for sale? It sold in less than a week for $5 grand more than was asked! Both my daughter and my son and family are scrambling to finish up projects and find new homes. My daughter's new home won't be ready until October. My son and daughter-in-law have been visiting lots and lots of homes in search for their new one. I have heard a lot of jokes about living in campers on in-laws' back lawns. My grandsons are a little stressed as a result. Children never really want to move do they?
Speaking of grands, I have a couple of pictures taken on our soggy bottom Memorial Day when we were stuck inside.
↑This is either weather blues or a no for a picture request...
This is a yes? Yikes! Maybe I need to stop with the picture requests... Sam's t-shirt says "knock it out of the park" and I hear that he has been doing great. Hope to see a game or two once the weather improves.
Awww...thanks, Jake, that's more like it! (I actually had to work hard for this. I said, "Pretend that you love me." Nothing. I said, "Pretend that you love your mama.") And this was my and her reward. Sweetness...
~coppery light during a thunderstorm~
Two new posts have been added to Inspirations in my sidebar. They are the two at the top of the list. You will be blessed to read them. I certainly was. (I feel as if I must offer you something richer, fuller, deeper than what you are finding in my posts of late.)
Explanation of the coppery light photos: I had fallen asleep in my recliner and woke to the strangest light filling the room. It glowed and amazed me for ten minutes or so. A thunderstorm was going on simultaneously. I don't know what exact weather conditions caused the light. I don't recall ever seeing anything like it before, but I'd like to see it again so that I can get better pictures.
A blessed weekend to you! Thank you for stopping by...
