You would never know I grew up in the Pacific Northwest based on my lack of initiative during the two days of constant drizzle and rain. Friday and Saturday were all rain and no sunshine. When I lived in Washington State, this type of thing didn't stop me. It couldn't - there's too many days like that. But since I've been away from it, I've gotten soft. I'm not as bad as Emerson and Oliver who swear they'll melt if made to go out in the rain, but I chose not to work outside at all.
Today was chilly but we finally had a reprieve and I was able to get back into the dirt and mulch. My garden is just waiting for a day or two of sunshine and then I believe it will double in size after all the rain.
The animals were lazy and the chickens were upset. Boy did I hear about it. When it rains hard the outdoor coop gets a little bit of rain in it on the sides and that seems to offend the coop girls more than one could imagine. I try to put a little bit of hay down in the mornings if it rained overnight so they don't have to get their toes wet if they choose to walk around the perimeter. There was no keeping up with it these past two days and, well, they didn't like it.Josephine
is doing ok. Not great, just ok. I'll try to post an update toward the end of the week.Batman
is gone. I'm sure with all the rain, hanging on the end of the barn wasn't a good choice for a guy trying to get a little shut-eye.
Hoping you all have had a wonderful weekend. Happy Memorial Day!
