If you have read Really Random the past couple of weeks, you will remember that I have posted pictures of both Mark and me going through the carwash and pretending we were having actual "weather" here in the central valley of California.
Well, this week we had actual weather! He had to make a trip Tuesday to Lodi, a town outside of Sacramento, so I rode along. We finally had rain. So please excuse me posting pictures if you see this kind of sky on a regular basis. I need to document it so I can come back here and remember what something other than blue skies or smoggy skies look like.
This is actual rain on the windshield, not from a carwash but from the sky!
I loved the contrast of the grey and white clouds.
The MCC sale, where over 200 quilts will be auctioned for charity, starts tomorrow afternoon through Saturday, always one of my favorite weekends of the year. Lots of super yummy food. One of our favorites is zweibach, not the hard teething crackers you find in the supermarket, but warm yeast rolls.I think in German zweibach translates to "two balls." It takes a skill to be able to pinch off smaller pieces of dough and place them properly on top of the larger piece of dough. Anyway, they are best warm out of the oven when you can take off the top piece and slather on some butter. Yum.....
Christa made these--she is an expert!
They sell countless dozens at the sale, so they need people to make the dough ahead of time. Christa asked whether I could watch the kids a bit tomorrow morning while she helps make the dough. I said sure, as long as she could sneak me a zweibach. You gotta love autocorrect, right? I know she meant "baked," not "naked," but it was too funny to resist making a funny comment back to her.
