Another Rainy Saturday

17 Sep

Last weekend’s rain was thankfully enough to keep us out of the moderate drought category for another week.

This morning, I woke up. No wait.  I got woke up early this morning by Herbie sticking his nose up my nose.  Since it was the third time, I finally got up and threw him out of my bedroom.  That’s when I noticed there was lightning outside.


It was raining when I got up to let the dog out to go to the bathroom.

Sky being a lazy bum in the house.

Then I got up a little later than usual to milk the girls because I was waiting for the lull I saw on radar.

The rain kept building in.

By the time it was done we had between a quarter and a third of an inch.  And it looks like there could be more later this evening.

I am not complaining. I am grateful for every drop, but I would really appreciate it if we could scootch the rainy days off of the weekend.  I really need to sell bucks and do a lot of other work out in the barnyard (and it’s hard to take blog pictures).

Howie, Crystal, and Terry (They are still here but look horrible)

Instead, I did use the time to make two more batches of mozzarella and can another six pints of tomato juice and eight half-pints of taco sauce.

And that took every single tomato left in my house!
