Woke up to thunder and lightning this morning, although I had to bike down to the store for milk. We made a deal, Philip would make the bed while I went to get the milk. I will take my chore any day!
Came back and enjoyed homemade bread with fresh blackberry jam made by a woman on the island. (Story to follow!!) Hot coffee and conversation were the mainstays at the breakfast table.
Last night was the birthday potluck for those of us with July birthdays. I, of course, wore my crown, as did several others with a tiara tossed in as well. I made the cake of double chocolate fudge (secret recipe!) topped with strawberries and whipped cream.
I have so much to do today, finish writing our Opry piece, phone calls, column, etc, but I just spent the morning outside on the screened in porch reading and letting the rain pour from the heavens. A perfect morning.
