So, we are in hurricane prep.  Or at least high winds prep.  Adn upon waking this morning, still nothing....

I see the news, and therefore know that Miss Irene is no joke, but so far, we re in the clear.  I took that daughter to a party on the lake yesterday, and it was such a glorious day.  A perfect summer day.  The fact that we needed to leave at 3pm in order to prepare the house and yard for the coming craziness seems simply surreal.

But, now I am here.  I am working hard to keep the dishes and the laundry up, and spent time yesterday harvesting as much from the garden as I possibly could.  The edamame were finally ready, so that was a blessing, but the sweet potatoes....they are another story.  I hope that they will be safe burrowed in the ground, and that the drainage around the beds are sufficient not to drown them.

In the meantime, I am washing and blanching edamame for the freezer (which is so much more delicious than the product that we were buying from the grocery store) and relishing the fact that I still have internet access.  We will see how the rest of the day goes....
