Rain Rain Thunder and Rain!
The tomatoes I had to water all week are really enjoying it. Cool
weather spinach is starting to sprout and while I haven't be into the
food plot I imagine there are other things that are either starting to
come up or will in the next day or two!
Every window I look out....I can see dark clouds. Occasionally we hear yet another thunder grumble from a lightning strike in the distance that immediately prompts Chuckie to attempt to bark it away...
Between showers the Chickens are in the yard and pasture taking
advantage of the feast of bugs that are forced from under the thatch
that has built up under the grasses, trying to avoid drowning as the
rain comes down. It's an easy feed for them today.
much cooler today than it has been in quite a while because of the rain
although I expect once the rain is gone it will be swamp hot again and
the mosquitoes will be hanging around the doors just looking for a
chance to come find us inside.
We went out on Friday, our usual
"date night" and met up with a co-worker from my 9-5 who works at a
different location in a different division and whom I had not met before
but who I partner with daily. Sometimes several times a day....
That dinner led to a trip to her house about 15-20 miles from here on
Saturday. She had purchased a little house on 2.5 beautiful acres and
was having water well problems. The "professionals" were going to charge
her a trip charge and possibly charge her out the wazoo to fix a simple
problem. She had lost the air space "head" on her tank that was causing
water pressure problems.
John fixed it in no time.....and
then wanted to go play pool at a little place between her house and ours
that we go to occasionally. We got in late...
So, it's been a
busy week here and today I have to make more bags to fill the latest
orders then start on some I've promised in exchange for saving the raw
bags for me. We need to cut down and roll the new ones that have some
in. I bet there is a hundred or more.
We'll be around and will check in from time to time....
Hope your weekend was a great as ours has been.....so far..
