Another beautiful Saturday ...


Another beautiful Saturday. We all attacked the
swimming pool this morning for about one hour - not to swim, but to clean it. The algae had gotten out of control and it needed a little work. But team work is where it is at! Even though I don't like swimming that much, this gave me an excuse to get wet up to my mid section. Hopefully this will solve the 'greenish water' problem.
Speaking of green, how 'bout that pan of okra? Hungry yet? That is what we pick about every two days, praise God! We get a little excited about that kind of stuff at our house. I also picked about 6 ears of corn - minus the tips - which I had to share with the corn ear worm borers. They don't eat much, and you can use them for fish bait. That is what happens when you don't use pesticides on your produce. And since I do not do anything to the garden other than plant and pick, I am not complaining.
Lauren and I had a daddy - daughter lunch date today. We ate at the Cactus Cafe (my Mexican favorite) and then had a mocha blast at the Central Perk. Afterwards, we drove around various Central neighborhoods looking at houses and just talking about life in general. It was good.
The older she gets the bigger the questions get. School is also challenging her mind to think about what she believes and why. It is a blessing and a privilege to have kids.
We are going to see a movie I think and I am being told it is time to go, so I will give ya'll an update later tonight with a movie critique. God Bless. George.
P.S. Who out there loves okra?

Sounds like a great day. And I love okra. Of course I like it fried up and dripping with grease! Not too healthy, huh. I like it in my gumbo, too. I love eggplant and corn but not many of the fruits you are growing over there on Waites Farm. Not a big fruit lover in general. I believe I am on the brink of big changes in the food category. We have got to do things different or we are going to pay for it. Have fun at the movies.

How about that produce stand George, still waiting on you to open one...went today to Southside Produce in Denham, spent a load but I got some awesome fruit and vegetables, also some bean soup! We NEED a produce stand in Central bad! Our garden faded out...although we did enjoy some eggplant, tomatoes and bellpeppers, squash and zuccinni!

See you in the Freedom Worship House tomarrow!
