Hump Day

As I said, I had less than a 1/4 inch of rain in the gauge at 6:30 a.m. on Wednesday. I left a little early so I could stop my Meijer’s. I remembered seeing some herb plants on a rack in the vegetable aisle and I wanted to see if they had flat leaf parsley.

Wow! They had three plants. Now, the leaves were a little yellow from being inside, but I was so excited about finding them I bought all three. Then I headed into work.

The forecast was for scattered showers until noon, then clearing and sunny. But, somebody didn’t tell the clouds that. It started raining and raining hard about 10:30 a.m. (I did get my morning walk in outside). No thunder or lightning, just a lot of rain!

So, I got soaked at lunchtime. I went to Time Out and took and chance on chicken enchiladas with refried beans. The result of my being adventurous was the worst meal I’ve had there to date. The enchiladas were crunchy, so crunchy I couldn’t cut them with a knife (who ever had a crunchy enchilada?) And, the “refried beans” tasted like pork and beans with cheese on top.

The waitress asked how they were and I said, “Not so good.” She said, “Would you order them again?” I said, “NO!” She said, “Well, Mexican isn’t our specialty.”

I think that said it all…

I went to the 24-hour grocery store and got some Dijon mustard (I ran out). I got drenched again walking to and from the truck. Likewise, going back into work.

It finally let up around 3:00 p.m.

On the way home, there was a lot of ponding on the roads. When I finally got there, I took in the trashcan and went inside. I treated Caley and then went out back to plant my herbs.

I was amazed at the rain gauge! There was almost 1 1/2 inches of water in there.

I got the trowel out of the shed and planted my parsley. I didn’t bother to add water, LOL!

Back inside, I watched the news until 7:00 p.m. Then I warmed up the steak I’d grilled on Sunday along with two ears of sweet corn for my supper. The steak was worth the wait.

I was obviously stuffed, so I waited an hour or so for dessert. I finally cut into that watermelon. First one this year and it was excellent. I don’t know why I don’t buy these more. Of course, I also think that on the rare occasions I buy a cantaloupe.

I watched a dumb movie until 11:00 p.m. and then went to bed.
