Rain threatening since lunch but, dark clouds and thunder working in now. So I scurried on out to feed and milk!! Done for the day. 😊
We had 2 storms unlike anything I've seen here before.
I've watched a wall of rain move across the pasture many times. Even raced it to the barn or the house.
But yesterday - 2x we went from patchy sun to downpour so hard that I couldn't see the trees on the other side of the paddock in 2secs. No droplets starting to hit the AC and the metal porch roof followed by a down pour, no sweeping wind bringing in a wall of rain... just getting hit like someone dumped a giant bucket of water!!

I guess that's what an ant in my potted porch plants feels like when I come around with the hose set to shower......

Good morning! Still drizzles here. Add fog. Yeah another wet, dreary day. Thought it was to clear out today but, weather people say not happening 😟 system is hanging around a couple more days. CRAP! It's just wet. We've only gotten a little over an inch, that's been going on for 4 days.

I'll go to work. No rush 🤣 not many jobs to do either 🤷

ETA. Some areas here have had off/on downpours. Those have bypassed me. 👍hope @farmerjan got rain!!

Good Morning everyone!
I got lost last week seeing how FH was out of town ( 1st was South Carolina from Sun-Wed afternoon then it was North Carolina from Wed til Thursday around noon) so now it's catching up on "news" on here.
I feel you @canesisters and @Mini Horses seeing how I also live in VA ( hour South of Richmond and about 2 hours from the NC border), this weather we're having lately is really getting to me also, have to keep putting off yardwork. Thought it was only going to be cloudy but nope it decided it was goin to MIST so laundry has to be put off until tomorrow seeing how I refuse to use the dryer and run the electric bill up.
I took the attached pics of Savage on Sunday. He was trying to get FH to give him some more Cheeto CHEESE puffs. Can't even open a package of sliced cheese from the Amish ( maybe it's a Mennonite store :idunnobut IDK seeing how I never see a horse/buggy there so maybe the ladies husbands/ fathers/sons drop them off then pick them back up :idunno:rolleyes:) without them coming on a run no matter where they are in the house.

Enjoying a down day here too.
Been a long couple of weeks. Two 6-day weeks at the office, yet another surprise meeting with HR (this time with my boss's boss too 🙄), trying to get back into going to church (visiting one 1/2 between here & my best friend) ,
Got up at 6 to let the chickens out & laid back down till 8. Still in jammies & its nearly noon.
Going to HAVE to go to the grocery store at some point.....
Anybody have any streaming recommendations for something light, funny, easy to watch... not depressing? Seems everything I've picked lately is kinda intense
Roxanne with Steve Martin (or at least the bar insult scene)

Ah - sure seems like a lot of us are having similar weather! I make it a coast to coast obervation! :lol: :rolleyes:
Sat-Mon (can't believe today is actually TUESDAY) - it was pea-soup fog all morning (like to 11 or so), Sun/Mon it was that an drizzly rain (still don't understand how it could still be foggy with that but it was) Temps mid 50s to mid 60s. Today - heavy overcast.
The weekend was ~supposed to be the greenhouse build. But the spot where it's going remains empty with the treated wood foundation. However, lots did get done! All in the garage - all panels assembled and ready to go outside. With luck and a few prayers it will be up today all together. As in the words of a fave tv show (Battlebots) -
It's Greenhouse Building Day.
Finishing my coffee and then out to help and do the normal Tuesday (is it really Tuesday?) ranch chores like stripping out the sheep stall, etc.

Oooo! I need to work on a Frau Blucher routine and give Vladinia some time off. Cloris Leachman was my stepmother’s roommate in college and I’ve met her. Very nice lady. I’m pretty sure Frau Blucher was based on my stepmother.

Sounds like a serious meeting!
Watch the series Ghosts. It’s cute, funny and entertaining!

It appears to have been more serious than I thought.
This morning, first thing, I received (from that difficult coworker) an apology, a couple of bags of Werther's candy, a little note AND a big Thank You for "always being available to help and for setting up the schedule" where I'd close for her a couple of times a week.
o_O
The atmosphere is much better all of the sudden...
My challenge now will be to forgive & show grace to someone who I know I can not trust.

Coffee was needed this morning when Fen woke me up too early. He had found several large branches to drag in the house while I slept and peeled all the bark off in my living room 😵‍💫. He ran around like a pinball machine, then suddenly stopped, climbed into his crate, laid down and gave me “the look”. He wanted breakfast. He stupidvises while I fix it then runs back to get into position and adopts this haughty attitude like he’s some kind of famous food critic.
So I served breakfast to him, to TheMan who is apparently incapable of making a smoothie on his own, and the rabbits. Then…coffee. Ahhh
