Flooding and The Magic Bullet!

Rain keeps coming down by the bucketfuls and it's been creating lots of flooding here in Oklahoma. The news channels are really stressing for parents to keep their children away from rising water as there have already been several fatalities.

This creek bed is usually just a trickle but it's a raging river right now. It runs from across the road from our shop and crosses under the road and runs into a nearby pond.

Our ponds are spilling over which is so unusual for being mid~summer. Oh the humidity is sure to be something else in days to come and I'm sure those pesky mosquito's will be out in full force.

I had never heard of the "Magic Bullet" until my daughter loaned me hers. I may just have to break down and buy one of these handy kitchen tools. It can make a smoothie in seconds and the clean up is easy....just my kind of kitchen appliance!

I think I can give up those buckets of ice cream for this low fat, low calorie delicious fruit smoothie....this one is mango, peach, strawberry, and blueberry and was 3 points on WW and was a large serving....I do love my desserts!

Happy Trails....Ginger

Sorry to see all that flooding... sure wish you could send half that rain up here! We all have brown crunchy lawns... even my hostas are brown... ? A gadget that can whip up something that is 3-points cold with minimal clean-up? I hafta get one of those! Looks yummy! :-)

You can send some of that extra rain our way. We sure could use it.
That smoothly looks so cool and refreshing. Yum!

I've been hearing the sad news about the rising waters there. While rain in July can be nice... too much is really a bad thing. Stay safe & stock up on the bug spray!

A fruit smoothie sounds yummy... but I know you really like the DQ too! :)

We had enough flooding this year, now it is just hot.
That is a neat gadget and great for the summer.

Hey, Ginger~have Pati tell you about the flooding roads & driving. We had quite a scary day Thursday.
I have had the Magic Bullet for several years and it really is a handy gadget. Think you would enjoy one as well as Sloan. My grandsons always ask for shakes made with mine when they are here.
Glad all is well down your way.
