We're okay in Houston. Neighbors are not as okay.

Thank you to all who have asked about us. We are good here  - the bark was definitely worse than the bite in our neighborhood.

Two of our three routes to town are flooded, road closed.  I didn't check the final route, but my partner in crime managed to make it to work so I guess that way must be open.

Flooding on Turtle Creek

Flooding near Houston, Texas

The golf course:

Quail Valley Golf Course

Out to repair Quail Valley Golf Course

There was one tree down, but the golfers seemed happy about that.  It turns out to have been blocking a hole:

Last but not least, we saw a lot of turtles wandering around, checking out the flood conditions I suppose.

So, that wasn't at all wordless and it wasn't even Wednesday but...you know...flood.

In Which I Meet a Friend and Give Away Her New Book

I made a new friend in Blogsilvania a couple months ago and then...wonder of wonders!  I actually got to MEET her!  Which never, ever happens to me.  Our kids had a great time destroying playing at the Museum of Natural Science and every so often Kerrie and I even got a word in edgewise.

The scene of the crime: hanging from a molecule
I was sad that Kerrie's husband wasn't going to be working in Houston again anytime soon, but so happy to get my hands on a copy of her book!

I had always wondered how to get started writing for regional family magazines, and here Kerrie knew all along.  She has all the information and advice you need to get started right in her book! Not only that but here's your chance to WIN Kerrie's book for FREE!

Stuff You Didn't Know You Needed from Amazon

Disclaimer: These are affiliate links.

I was shopping on Amazon for Banana Flour (which is quite yummy and makes a very nice gluten free coating) when I came upon cricket flour and tiger nuts.  It kind of made me wonder what other kind of weird stuff was on Amazon.

I know, for sure for sure somebody's going to tell me that Cricket Flour is a healthy staple and they enjoy it tremendously. But still...to me, all these products are kind of funny:

100% Cricket Flour

They say soon we'll all be eating a steady diet of bugs.  I guess we can get started with ease now.

And as if that weren't enough, I also happened upon Tiger Nuts.  Because.  Everyone eats Tiger Nuts.

TIGER NUTS - Supreme Peeled12 oz

This has been on my wish list forever.  Because, I mean...who knew?

Unicorns Are Jerks: a coloring book exposing the cold, hard, sparkly truth

Since I'm already on the topic of unicorns:

And who wouldn't want to chase unicorn meat with some Zombie Jerky?

We actually already own these Bacon Band-aids

And these "Large Pickle Shaped Adhesive Bandages "

Because our household is just bizarre that way. Or fun loving, one or the other.

This one might actually be good for nine year old boys who are reluctant bathers.  Maybe they'd get extra clean:

Fun Runny Nose Shower Gel Dispenser

Anyway, that's about all the Amazon scouring I can manage for one day, but there's just so MUCH for sale!  Got any silly Amazon favorites?
