Yes, it is raining. Raining. And then raining some more. In defiance I went out to do chores in shorts. It took about 2.5 seconds before I was breakfast for the bazillion bugs we have this summer. But it's okay...I laugh in the face of Mother Nature. Bring it baby! (The sunshine, I mean). Um, thanks.
Yes, I know she looks like crap. Yes, I know she needs sheared. Rolling around with a wet stinky sheep is not on my Bucket List. Again, bring on the sun.
Lots of little cucumbers on those vines. Can't wait until one of them is big enough to eat!
Isn't that the cutest little jalapeno?
I have many beds of carrots whose tops are growing. Sure hope there is something happening in the dirt. One year I had huge tops and no carrots. Last year I had lots of carrots. Crossing my fingers.
Kohlrabi, cabbage and the spinach that bolted and needs replanted, but who wants to garden in the rain? Not me.
I love this rainbow chard...red, yellow, white....it's so pretty and tasty, too.
While my younger kids played air hockey what did I do? Did I weed or paint?
You guessed it. Weeding in the rain is also not on my to-do list. Nest boxes are painted and ready for the coop. Hopefully, it can happen tonight.
See the little guy? Now I suppose I need to go buy some crickets or some kind of bug for him to eat.
He even put in a bowl (from my kitchen!!) so he'd have a little swimming pool. I swear when I looked out at my big 18 year old with all his enthusiasm I saw him as an 8-year old. I miss that little boy (men aren't as fun...trust me).
Last night was a soccer night. I actually took a couple photos with my phone, but Elijah stole my cord and it's in his room and we all know I have to walk outside to get there. And it's raining. You can just take my word for it....it was wet and cold. Lucas played at 7 in the pouring rain. Then Nick was at 8. It rained off and on pretty hard for over half of the 90-minute game. By the time I got out of there I stood around in the rain for 3 hours. Do you think I brought a rain coat? No, not that smart. (Maybe that's where my chickens get it from).
Up and at 'em this morning. Meeting, job applications and work service with Elijah. Now it's time to finish up some cleaning I started yesterday.....
