A Rainy Saturday

It's been another good 24 hours.  First of all, we were able to pick up our car from the shop and were quite pleased to only have to pay $60.  (Certainly zero dollars would have been ideal...but that's ok.) Unfortunately we might need to invest in a new battery, but we're both so thrilled to have our vehicle back.  Last evening after Ben arrived, we had a delicious dinner of homemade pizza, breadsticks, and salad (thank you very much...) and then ventured out to the wonderful world of Meijer.  Kevin and I picked up lots of needed groceries and the three of us found lots of snacks to keep our mouths occupied while watching the Tigers' game.  

We woke up around 9am and I fixed a pancake breakfast for all of us (Ben had spent the night.)  mmm, mmm.  Thank you, Aunt Jemima.  We lounged around for the remainder of the morning before Kevin's "new-used" bike was delivered!  3 cheers for online shopping and $50 bikes.  

It was at that point when the torrential downpours began.  The rain was quickly flooding the streets and gutters and was blowing its way into our apartment.  The noise became deafening as we looked out to see large balls of hail pounding the sidewalks. That put a damper on our "let's bike to the market" plan, but remember...we had our car back, so it all worked out in the end.  Our produce shopping was quite successful...delicious cantaloupe for a dollar, huge heads of romaine for $.75, and 5 lbs of bananas for a dollar!
(sure, they're getting brown, but we LOVE banana bread, banana muffins, banana cake, etc, etc, etc.)

Now we wait and see if our next set of guests can find their way here...
