What an unbearable day in the weather department. It was cool when I got up...needed a sweatshirt when I went out to the barn. Cruised through the chores.
Of course it started to pour...
When there was a break I started hunting for onions and hung up several bunches so they will dry out.
The rain was on and off...at times it was VERY heavy.
The temperature went up about 20+ degrees and it was so muggy!!!!! the horses stayed out in the pasture and ate. Fortunately there was a breeze.
Went in the house...had lunch...a quick trip to the store...back home to clean and start on dinner. Phoebe and Gucci were happy to relax under the ceiling fan in the living room.
Our cherry tomatoes are starting to ripen...this is the second batch to be picked. Even found a plum tomato.
Got together some flowers for the dining room and kitchen....I love using dill as a filler.
THIS IS THE STRANGE PART OF THE DAY! The humidity was so high the floors were wet...in the kitchen and all the hardwood floors too. Never ever has this happened before.
I had started marinating some chicken last night and put together shish ke bobs for dinner. It was our monthly meeting with Brenda, Al, Ron and Ann.
Ann brought a classic spinach salad and some appetizers.
We had some crusty bread....
Ron and Al kept Gary company while he was grilling.
Getting back to dinner...I made Rosa Marina...
The ke bobs were made with chicken, onions, red peppers, zuchinni, yellow squash, mushrooms and cherry tomatoes. They were grilled to perfection.
Brenda made a cheese cake with a nutty crust, topped with fresh berries. Outstanding...smooth.
We sure have a lot of laughs when we are together.
It doesn't get much better than having dinner and some good laughs with friends. What a pleasure it is to spend time with these people.
I was yawning before 10. The heat and humidity crippled me. I can't tell you how grateful I am that Barb did the chores.
