Inside Day

Saturday, June 2, 2018

Another weather rerun. Hot and dry. Fortunately, we just had a lazy day and stayed in the air conditioning most of the day.

No alarm clock today. Nice! When we got up we got things ready to prepare blueberry pancakes. We had arranged a late breakfast for today with Dave and Carol. Phil went home for the weekend, Wayne and Debbi went to Houston and Nula slept late today because she started driving back to SC this afternoon, so it was just the four of us this morning. Max prepared bacon, eggs, and blueberry pancakes and Dave prepared home fries. Anne mixed up the pancakes and helped with the other things, but basically the guys cooked breakfast for the gals. Max and Anne cooked up a blueberry syrup last night. We all enjoyed a wonderful meal and a good time together. Later, Nula came over and ate some of the left overs.

It was too hot to do much today so we stayed in the cool and watched some movies. Relaxing day. Trip to the produce standWe also cooked up some of the corn we got from the produce stand across the street and it was so good we went back for more and also bought more tomatoes and a cantaloupe. Really good fresh produce. Love fresh veggies this time of year. Now, if we could find a good watermelon. The local ones aren’t ready yet. Soon. Looking forward to worshiping with our friends here in Hattiesburg tomorrow.

Doughnuts, Blueberries and Peach Shakes, Oh My!

So glad we were off today. We needed the rest. It was another hot one and it’s after 8:00 pm and still 87. Still no rain here in Oak Grove. Hard to grasp that it is already June. The past year has been something. We feel like we have begun figuring out life with a new normalcy but are still adjusting and sometimes things still just hit us unexpectedly. We have really felt and appreciate all your prayers.

Donut King signHappy National Doughnut Day! Of course we went across the street to Doughnut King to purchase some doughnuts and fritters for breakfast. Everything was good and the glazed doughnut holes were pretty awesome. However, Sonny’s in Gaffney, SC is still in first place for the best doughnut shop.

Sandy Run Farm signIt is blueberry season here in southern Mississippi and this morning we went with Dave and Carol to a local U-pick blueberry farm. It’s only about 5 minutes from the church. It’s a pretty big operation. They have blueberry bushes as far as you can see. Really good berries! We picked about a gallon and have been munching on them all afternoon. We have three nice blueberry bushes at home but aren’t scheduled to be home when they should be ready so we will enjoy these. If we get to pick those at home we will get to make jelly. We like to keep some good blueberry jelly to give as gifts.

After doughnuts and blueberries it was time to get the laundry done. It takes lots of clothes when it is this hot. Later we walked across the street to the produce stand for tomatoes and corn. Love good local produce. The corn was picked fresh this morning. Then we made a trip to Sam’s for water and Gatorade for next week. Also a stop at Walmart for milk and bananas. But before those two stops we went to Lowe’s to browse. No major purchases. Just a contour guide we had been intending to buy for a while. We were going to go to Chick-Fil-A since the peach shakes are back but you couldn’t get in the parking lot when we were there. Later this afternoon Dave and Carol were there and brought us a shake. Thanks Dave and Carol. We really enjoy peach shakes.! Guess this day was all about the food. Good day! Have a great weekend and stay safe.
