Happy Memorial Day Weekend! And God bless those who fought and died in the battle to preserve our freedom to enjoy life without tyranny.
It’s been raining cats and dogs here again. All of the ponds are overflowing and the grass is ten feet high. Mosquitoes are carrying off small livestock and the frogs are so loud they’re getting tickets for disturbing the peace.
We literally got over 3 inches of rain last night in just a few hours , to add to the 5 inches we got just a week ago. The ground is so saturated that we can’t mow the grass.
But today the sun is out and we are enjoying the day cooking together . First my husband got up early to prepare a brisket that he’s slow smoking for about 8 hours.
Then he sliced up several cucumbers from our garden to make fast pickles . This is our first attempt at making pickles . We also decided to make pickled eggs because he loves them. We put habanero peppers in two jars of the pickles . My son loves hot peppers.
After a month of rain, I’m hoping June will be a little less wet. Hope everyone has a great weekend! Enjoy our freedom while we still can .
