Last evening it poured. It was just what we have been waiting for. The sound of the rain hitting our tin roof was soothing. I was in the kitchen fixing fried rice watching the rain jump off the ground as it hit. Water was flowing down our dirt road. Then I realized I needed carrots and that we were out of eggs. I found my garden shoes and quickly put my jacket on and went out the door. Pulling carrots in the rain was actually kinda fun. Thankfully, when I made my way to the coup I found 2 eggs. Exactly what I needed. This is why I love where we live. For moments like this. Walking back in the door with food for our family from our backyard. As a mom, it made me feel very thankful. The fried rice was excellent as usual. If you'd like to make it, hop over to http://www.digthischickmt.com/. She has a lovely blog. One of my daily must reads!
