Where did the week go? Geezlaweez.
A quick recap
After a hot and dry week, rain was such a welcome blessing. The old groundhog maybe right after all; winter has FINALLY come to So Cal. So, before the rain, we were making sure to plant a LOT of seeds and transplant everything we could. Lucky we did because, boy, did it pour, even hailed a little! After the dark clouds lifted, there was even a dusting of snow on the mountains. First snow this winter! We certainly need every bit of it.
Found out rather late that our little homestead was on National Geographic Channel on new show called “Doomsday Preppers.” We don’t have cable; but I am told, the episode (“Back to the Stone Age”) which features a few “prepper” families will air again on Saturday. Since we don’t really consider ourselves extreme Preppers, we’ll write more about how we were wrangled by Nat Geo to be on the show in the first place, even after we turned them down, and, more importantly, what they didn’t show on the show. If you are my Facebook friend you’ll already know!
In between knitting, canning, baking, cooking, entertaining, singing, running the Front Porch Farm Stand, I leave you with another one of those “be still” moments that lifts the soul.
The shot that was taken after the rains. The sun came out briefly and so did the bees from their hives to lick the raindrops off the miner’s lettuce leaves. Seems miner’s lettuce is the preferred watering hole, so to speak, for the bees. I was just mesmerized, sitting there watching the bees.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
