Slow Down Thursday

Thursday, June 18, 2009
The weather has been stormy here. Tuesday night I was awakened by my volunteer neighbors, I had gone to bed early and there were tornado warnings. It looked nasty too, so we went to the shelters and watched the storm, it passed to the east of us, we didn't get anything. But my boss did, she lives 20 miles or so north east of me, and she had high winds and pounding rain.

I really like this particular shot, the dark sky with the sun coming in low making the wheat glow golden. And don't the clouds look angry?? Great picture Karla!

Last night it was stormy again, but only thunderstorms. The wind blew and it poured sheets of rain, but nothing dangerous. Maybe more thunderstorms tonight. Well, this is the season for it!

I usually don't bake much in my camper, but today I made a cake for the picnic tonight. Since my camper is not level--on purpose--it made for lots of turning of the pan while baking! I have my camper sloped a bit to make sure the water doesn't pool on the roof. My air conditioner is up there and needs a bit of a slope for the water to run off. I baked a version of "Sunshine Cake"--it's a orange flavored cake with mandarin oranges in it, and whipped topping, instant vanilla pudding and crushed pineapple on the top. YUM! I will try to remember to take pictures tonight at the picnic. It's always a fun event!


PS--I want to try my new mailbox, if you're interested in receiving a postcard--please email me your name and mailing address!
