Trip to Alpine

We had to go to Alpine yesterday for several things. Dr. appt for Laura to get her meds refilled, and I had to pick up my meds also. I had a little job to do (real estate). Picked up a few items at Blue water health store. Went grocery shopping, got some great looking T-bones, and had lunch at El Patio. Truck needed gas…it had gone up some-$2.13. Arrived at 10:30 and left at 3:30. Pretty much spent most of the day in Alpine.

Back at home, the pond is full and waterlilies are in bloom.

Got our first ripe tomato and squash from the garden. Had to change some plants out to containers because of the ground squirrels digging them up.

We have had several peach deserts now, glad we went out and picked some because that tree is about done with the birds and animals eating a lot of them. The peaches are so good!!

 

Rain, Peaches, and Bugs

Yes, it’s been raining. Love to watch the clouds form. You can see for hundreds of miles. This storm dropped 2 inch hail in Sanderson just east of us. We got no hail here.

This was June 1st storm rolling through.

Between rain storms we have been picking peaches. As I posted in a previous post we have a peach tree that is loaded with fruit. One of the campers made the office a peach cobbler. We have had some peach desserts also with more to come!!

We got a ladder in the tree today and found a few that the birds hadn’t poked holes in.

Maybe all the rain has brought out some bugs, insects, spiders and such…

Found this cool looking moth this morning trying to find a warm spot from the North winds we had today

It’s back to work again tomorrow, but just 2 more days to go. Things have slowed down some with the summer upon us and the heat down in the Big Bend.
