To start with I will tell you that it is windy and pouring rain!! We had a late breakfast and so nobody had lunch. About 3:30 I wanted a snack, and I thought a peach smoothie sounded good, but if I wanted it I would have to go the peach tree and get peaches ( in pouring rain). Or I could use the peaches in the freezer,( no thanks). So I decided to go out in the pouring rain. My younger sister said she would go with me, so we got our jackets, put them over our heads opened the door………………….. and I realized just jackets would not do . We got some paper bags,tore out places for our eyes, put them on our head and wore jackets (the right way!). We ran out there( remember in pouring rain) went to the peach tree which is a good 200 ft. from the door. Since it was raining and windy, the rain was pounding on us. We got to the peach tree and most of the peaches were brown. Great! Now we have to stay out here longer looking for 4 good peaches. The bags on our heads are ripping and getting very soggy, and our skirts were soaking wet. We finally got our peaches and ran back inside, I thought about changing but decided I would just air dry– my sister did the same I finally got the peach smoothie made, it was delicious………..and yes it was worth it.
I think I will go for now.
