Monsoon Minutes on Monday

What's happening at your house this Monday?

From scratch Tollhouse Chocolate Chip Cookies. (Who says you can't use melted butter?)

Won't be out weeding around these veggie beds today❣
A river of water flowing down through the side yard to the culvert and pond.

Our backyard (um, maybe canal?).

We just cleaned off that patch of woods on the right. Maybe not the best place for a new veggie bed😂.
Side yard with drainage to the pond on the left behind the live oak.

View from the front porch during the monsoon minutes.

Our gravel road in the distance was probably momentarily under water.

Lake around our other live oak in the front yard.

This is what happens to a screened in back porch during a monsoon moment. Anyone for a shower? Pass the shampoo, please❣

Dat is met recht een moesson, wat een water. Zakt het snel weg of blijft het lang staan?
Hier hebben we dus geen echte winter maar wel veel regen. En ook in onze tuin is het drassig met grote plassen. Vorige week zijn de drainagepijpen doorgespoten maar helaas heeft het niet veel geholpen, het is nog veel te nat om in te werken, helaas.
Groetjes van een nat Holland naar een nat Louisiana.
