The East Coast (notably NJ) was slammed with rain ALL week! Crazy! I'm surprised we didn't all drown! Needless to say, any photo shoots I had planned for recipes did not happen, nor was I able to enjoy the last of our July summer-outdoor fun. I did risk my life and ended up driving in torrential downpours to get some blood work I needed done. I tried to time it so I could dodge the big pockets of rain...of course that didn't happen. People were basically stopping on the highway because you could not see out the windshield! It was an accomplishment to make it home safe, that's for sure!
I can't believe August is upon us already! Where did the summer go? Some kids are already gearing up for back to school in the next couple of weeks (I don't start until September!) I didn't even do anything "summery" yet so let's slow things down and make August count! You with me?
