I left home very early this morning. I was headed for my old homeplace. I had a couple of stops along the way and on to my friend's home.
She has been in this home about 6 months. The home is a duplicate of the one I built not far from her country home. I drew the floor plan.
These are twins that I have such a bond with. They will be 79 this November.
The refrigerator was filled with all kinds of food left over from a shower that they hosted on Sunday.
A quick lunch was enjoyed.
Then the main reason for my visit - the corn arrived.
There is nothing like the first corn of the season that has been pulled about an hour earlier.
I brought 4 dozen ears home with me. Also a half of watermelon just out of the field.
It was a delightful day.
I headed home and as I was pulling out of the small town my car alerted me that I had a low tire.
I was so thankful that I was just minutes from where my car was serviced regularly when living in this area.
My car showed 96 degrees and I had a car full of corn that needed to be refrigerated.
The moment the mechanic came out to check the air in my tires
I saw the problem...a nail. Where in the world did I pick this up? Especially since the about 6 weeks before I had 3 nails in my tires.
To make a long story short, he repaired my tire and I headed home.
So very thankful all the way home. All I could think of - what if.
What if I was on the highway and had a flat in this heat? It surely would have upset me.
So, again. I am very thankful.
The corn is in my son's freezer. Since he rarely uses it and left for Thailand yesterday.
Still in the air, over the water.
Mom wishes him a safe journey, a good visit and a safe trip back to his family.
