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...
