In all of the craziness on Cape Cod caused by the flurry of frantic people preparing for Irene, I needed a break today. I took the kids and we went and picked flowers at the Cape Cod Organic Farm. In the fields, the children and I made our selections and assembled a beautiful bouquet. Once home, I trimmed the flowers and arranged them in a vase at the backyard table. A bumblebee paid the freshly cut flowers a visit.
We have done as much as we can at this point preparing for Irene. We are stocked up on supplies. The chicken coop was cleaned out early this morning. Tomorrow, we will finish tying down the grill and patio furniture. The girls will have their last day outside before we hunker down. Today is a beautiful sunny summer day, the true calm before the storm.
