The eastern sky after another rainstorm was scuttling away. Somehow I love barns with dark skies. It didn't last long, and I was happy I managed to capture it before it faded into a friendlier light gray.
We enjoy trying new foods. I took a quick picture of my plate before I ate this week's new fare. The broccoli wasn't new, but it's my favorite vegetable. The fries are actually yucca root cut to look like fries, tossed in olive oil and seasonings before being baked. It was our first time trying them. I loved them, they were slightly sweet kind of like a sweet potato, but more fibrous. I could happily make it a weekly addition to our menu, except that the rest of the family didn't enjoy it as much as I did. The rice noodles were another first for us. They were a hit.
With all the rain we've been having, trying to get a daily walk in has been challenging. We've been heading outside at the first break between showers. All the wild flowers seem to be thriving under these wet conditions.
Sharon thought it would be really cool to try to get a picture of a water balloon popping, so we filled up a giant bowl with balloons and headed outside. I did my best, and out of almost a hundred pictures I finally managed to get a fairly decent one. We both loved how it appeared there was a ball of water hanging there.
Rosie Mae made some yummy savory pastries for lunch the one day. The filling consisted of broccoli, ham, and cheese.
And since this is my favorite picture I took this week, I am sharing it again.
