Again....

Yup, all the rains up North of us have finally reached our shores and the riverfront festivities of Great River Days has had to relocate out to the community college grounds...geesh!

What a season this year...can you say storms...

The sunset shined brilliantly through my parlor window the other night...
it looked like the whole world was ablaze!

Mmmmm...Iowa...fresh sliced tomaters and onions, corn on the cob...SWEET..
and sauteed eggplant...oh yeah
and an ice cold brew...ahhhhh...on a scorchin' night in Ioway!

...and a famous Muscatine cantaloupe...have I died...

They rolled in and...

...they rolled out...all in a summer's season...'tis good to be alive...
BREATHE...

We have luckily escaped the storms but we've certainly suffered with the heat. We'll have a big ole afternoon shower come thru -- the kind that makes your tomatoes split and your garden look great. Did I mention mosquitoes!!!! I'll be wishing for this in January. You're supper looked yummy.

It's been a rainy stormy year. I expected our county fair would have to be cancelled due to floods but luckily they are still having it. I think it flooded somewhere else for once or they where just able to keep the pumps going and the water out of the fairgrounds. It's been a busy, busy summer. This is the first time in a few weeks I've even looked at anyone's blog. But I know in the winter I'll be wishing for this warmer weather and busy, busy time of year.

I would faint if I saw a sky like that rolling in (we used to get them in FL) good thing it rolled out again! Beautiful sunset photo from the window!! Your garden bounty food shots are making me so hungry!!

Hope the waters recede and the weather stays calm!

Thanks for visiting my blog today :) I'm located in Louisa county near Columbus Junction. Someone just told me an artist has bought the building in Lone Tree and is going to be fixing it up soon so it is not really abandoned like I thought it was.

OMG, look at those storm clouds, and all that rain.

But you have to love fresh summer veges and fruits.

I was wondering if the rising river was going to reach your neck of the woods - looks like you've had your share of storms, too. Love that sunset glow picture you captured!
