At least what is falling from the sky is NOT that white stuff. However....we have really had ENOUGH rain for a while.
With all of the rain, comes mud..and what I call...poop soup. Oh boy! We really need about a week or THREE without rain, and daytime temps in the 70's. The other day, I was in the barn when a storm raced in. Here is how it went......
I am out in the barn doing morning chores..
I quicken my step, I hear the warning...
The cats are scared, finding places to hide,
The sheep are skittish, watching the skies,
The goats are angry, wanting to fight,
I splash through water, mud and muck,
Stuffing the hay carrying water buckets..
Freshen the bedding, throwing the straw,
Letting the sheep out of the stall.
tripping on cats, hoping I don't fall...
I grab my jacket, down from the nail...
The rain is starting, and even some hail..
A few hundred steps from the barn to the house,
I lock the gate so the goats don't get out.
I turn to run, but my legs give out...
Yes, kerplop! Darned mud....darned Thunder.
The kitties have been happy with the warmer temps. They have brought me a few "gifts" Some I was able to save, and set free...like this little one..
This one as well...although it was NOT happy when I picked it up to move it to safety. LOL
Several of the other "gifts" were not as lucky...they were brought to me in pieces. *yuk*
So we have been busy gearing up for a BUSY spring planting season....we need to move about 30 tons of dirt, the all of the barn and rabbit "mulch" after planting. Tomorrow I am going to get the potato bed ready for planting. I really need to get them in the ground...soon!
Have you been outside and loving the Springtime weather?
