we heard the loud clap of thunder.
we jumped into the hottub and waited for the rain. look how small the greenhouse looks in comparison to the sky!
try to ignore my finger in the above picture. any time it rains, kids, we run around the whole house nekkid, being rained on before getting back in the hottub.
jambaloney thinks i'm crazy but this is a ritual that i have been making us do for over 15 years. i think when it rains, but especially during a thunderstorm - you must acknowledge the universe's gift to you. we were in the hottub for an hour watching this beauty roll in.
it is always amazing when you can see the actual line of the thunderstorm. it rained on us only a few times. but it thundered like mad!
then we saw a tiny break in the sky and knew that it had passed us.
it only rained and thundered a few more times.
so very amazing to be a part of it!
and here is out front during one of our nekkid runs around the yard, in the rain then back to the hottub!
these skies are amazing!
and then the sky broke open right above us...to let us know to never forget to read the skies.
the lobster and crab fishermen here know all about how to read the skies...and jambaloney has learned to read the skies too. he knows exactly when to hit the river or strachan's brook in order to keep us filled with the best fish known to man.
river/brook trout! those type of trout are the first of any fish to die off if your water is polluted in any manner. not ours! sorry...but we got some of the bestest, freshest, healthiest water in the world. those trout were deeeeeelishous for breakfast! that man can feed us for the rest of our lives just off of trout - you want to feel food security? i feel it. i really feel it. and it makes for peaceful dreams at night.
and like i always say - we love our stir-fried veg!
the day ended kinda' hazy and alot buggy - those black flies are my nemesi!
all in all - another wonderful day! jambaloney got a bunch of stuff out of the basement and into our one shed, and some stuff out of another shed, then he'll start laying out all of the windows he got in the garbage to make our second greenhouse - BIG SHOUT-OUT to our big bro G and big sis C for a ginormic window and a glass door and a bunch of wood that jambaloney will go and get tomorrow. we already have the window but jam has to go and get the rest of the stuff. we'll have greenhouse #2 in no time. actually just in time. cuz i have corn coming up!
wahoohey! what a great day! sending love to you all - xoxoxo!
