Did you know for years I wanted to be a meteorologist!? I am pretty good at sensing the weather! [I think I have also mentioned on KERF that I used to have a weather radio…..severe thunderstorm alert – more like NERD alert!] Shoulda been a meteorologist.
I headed out on my bike to the bakery, where I discovered the oven booming in the corner! Honestly, I wanted to leave the bakery. It is SUCH a mess and there is SO much to do it immediately stressed me out!!!
Then I biked down to Riverview Park where I met new-friend & KERF reader Rachel! Justtttt before 3:30 I heard thunder. I looked for shelter – none. I was miles from home with no where to hide! [There was a porta-john but I did not consider that even an option…]
Rachel arrived just in time to whisk me away in her van to a coffee shop, where we chatted over Perrier and tea.
When the rain passed, we went back to Riverview and braved the walk – and ended up SOAKED!
It was fun though, and nice to meet you Rachel! The only thing that didn’t like the rain was my cell phone, which seems OK.
Then I went across the street to Cville Market for some veggies – they have amazing prices! I got bananas for $.29/lb and a few other necessities. Veggies in the bike bag:
Faith and I walked the 1.5 miles home together (I walked my bike) and just as the sun was coming back out. It was so much more fun than biking alone!
I biked the final mile myself and was famished to start on dinner.
Matt rolled in just as I did, but he had showering to do, so I turned on the grill.
Look who shoulda been a grillmaster!
That beer in hand – that was provided by my beer master. Heavy Seeds Holy Sheet!
I also shoulda been a lifeguard (oh wait, I was one for a summer!!) because I had to rescue a bug from my beer!
Dinner was grilled asparagus, pok choy (farmer’s market’s words – not mine!), and Twin Oaks Pesto Tofu. Veggies were seasoned with olive oil, salt, pepper and smoked paprika – what else!?
Plus tortillas from our freezer
Turned into quite the taco!!
Topped with some teriyaki sauce and sriracha
Two nights in a row – we were literally TOSSED from the porch by furious winds and torrential rains!! Weather here changes faster than Mary Poppins! Shoulda been an umbrella..
I’ve got a handful of phone interviews for the bakery taking up my whole morning tomorrow. It’s going to be a phone-heavy day!
