Jasmine Act II

We've had a lot of rain these last few days. That's a good thing. The temps for the last few weeks have been brutal and baked the ground as hard as asphalt. 

It was pretty this morning with a cool breeze blowing out of the northwest but we knew it wouldn't last. The radar showed a storm as big as half of Mississippi stomping its way eastward. When I stepped out onto the front steps to get an analog weather report, I noticed the Jasmine is blooming again. I thought it was finished until next year, but no it's having another go. 

We decided to get some steps in before the rain came. On the final lap, we met Jordan on the walking toward us on barn road. His Nana was with him. We left them walking and headed in.

Jilda went in to start breakfast and I grabbed a basket to pick a few blueberries. I'd picked over a gallon before the sun came out and the humidity spiked. 

I walked inside dripping. 

Jordan decided to join us for breakfast. Jilda had baked some bacon and whipped up some scrambled eggs. Yum.

That got the day off to a good start. I wish every day could start that way.


  1. I hope the day continues the way it started.

  2. Wow! Those blueberry bushes are sure paying off big dividends. Eggs and bacon sounds good for breakfast. By the looks of it, the chickens are paying big dividends too. Have a great weekend.
    Hugs, Julia

  3. Sounds like your rain brought some new life to your jasmine for sure. We have had no end to the rain and it's raining again here today. We've had some cooler days with no need for a/c,but that is going to change in the week ahead. Hope you have a super Saturday!

    Blueberries & bacon are my favorite ways to start the day!!

  5. Hopefully none of the terrible storms were in your area. Jordan is developing a good habit of walking for himself. Methinks he has some good role models.
