Last weekend Missouri was rained upon big time. My area wasn't badly hit but other parts were!! So the excursions we planned with my sister-in-law were curtailed. We did make it to Bushwacker's bend Winery in Glasow... enjoyed our wine tasting and the rolls and coffee we had around the corner at the bakery.
The Missouri River was high and flowing fast. One our way too and from we saw smaller rivers out of their banks...plus signs indicating closed roads. ( I44 which took the place of Route 66 and goes from OK to St. Louis was closed in sections due to the rain.)
Today was a busy one... off to pick up my son ( he lives 45 minuted southwest of us) ... then off to the first farmer's market of the season! Asparagus, greens, mushrooms, radishes, plants, home raised beef, pork and lamb ( all frozen).
Then we headed to the Brookside part of Kansas City to see the annual Art Show!! I found a hand blown glass sea urchin and Bob found a wonderful hand thrown pottery vase. I found the artist I had bought a print from last year to tell him how much I enjoyed it . Also just had to tell him the tale of Bob trying to hang the print on our brick chimney wall. Drilling holes in brick is not an easy task! There was lots to look at and lots to wish for.
Then back to our son's home to drop him off... and a quick trip through an estate sale on the way home.
We are all exhausted!!
Tomorrow is a family grill out .... loads of food and visiting!
