|Tires almost stuck in mud|
NOTHING got done outside today after the rains stopped.
Well nothing except almost getting 2nd Man's car stuck in the yard. Oops! I pulled up close to the house to unload some landscape timbers and opened the door and stepped out into a deep puddle. Next, I realized my shoe was stuck in the mud so I got back in the car, of course, getting mud on the carpet. When I started the engine and put it in reverse, the tires spun before finally backing up.
I parked it in a high spot in the yard, though as you can see below, standing water was all over the place. I put on the rubber boots (I swear, I love those things), unloaded the timbers and decided to just do a few things inside.

I stayed a few hours and came back into town. Rain gauge showed almost 7 inches total over the last week and a half. It was worth the round trip though, when I came home 2nd Man had prepared this for dinner...

...bacon wrapped, stuffed pork tenderloin over polenta and peppers with roasted mixed vegetables on the side. It was a wonderful way to end an otherwise mostly unproductive weekend.
