Rainy Days

It has been raining for what feels like forever here! The rain has been a big conversation topic. Come on, we live in the woods, what else are we going to talk about besides weather?

Joshua and I went to visit my family for a few days, and had a really great time. On my way back, it was pouring rain, and lots of the roads were flooded. I was driving down 125 HWY and suddenly we saw a creek flooding over the road. It was too deep for us to cross, so we had to reverse the car and turn around. We didn't know how to get back to East Wind any other way, so we stopped at a gas station, and one of the employees directed us home.

We made it home safely, thanks to the kindness of strangers, and slow driving.

I guess it is rainy season.

I really like cooking and baking when it is rainy outside. It seems like a lot of people do. A friend and I got really excited about cream puffs, and told some people we were going to make an experiment batch one rainy/cloudy day. It was just me and her, cooking quietly in RB (Rock Bottom.) It seemed unusually quiet. We guessed that people were hiding out from the weather.
Just about the time the cream puffs were finished, a group of our friends came in RB, asking "cream puffs? cream puffs?"

They were so freaking good.

I finally had my cream puff fix!
