Yep the water is everywhere you look outside and the bugs, mice and everything else is trying to make it inside. All the horses have been in their stalls which is great for the pasture but a few more days and they are going to be kite like. Hopefully it will stop long enough for everyone to get sone out time before it starts again.

Happy Tuesday y'all!

Ok - well that does it. I cleaned up the garden, pulled out the irrigation system and raked down the dead grass off the rows with chickens supervising my every move. Going to do some tilling later on. I simply can't walk past a bare garden plot and not plant something in the dirt.

I guess it's a good thing I'm not a serial killer.

I am ready for dry weather. Atlanta had such good weather that I was itching to ride the whole time I was there. That itch has not gone away.
I am not complaining we need this rain.
At the farm this time of year mice rats spiders even snakes find their way into the house and outer buildings. Here near dallas only mice seem to be a problem. The pest with hair I don't mind the rest though must die. If it eats its mate and/or own young I have no use for it. Shalom

I completely agree with you dba! I can tolerate hairy creatures as long as they don't have 6 or more legs.....

I'll tolerate the fuzzy visitors UNTIL they crawl up the back of my oven and steal corn bread leavings right out of my cast iron skillet on top of my stove. That's crossing the line!!!

Reading these posts, I'm thankful I have yet to deal with unwanted critters seeking shelter the rain. Of course at this time of year, I'd have to pay very close attention to determine if it was real or part of my Halloween decor! On that same note, I asked my son to dust his room last night and was met with an incredulous look, followed by "But the house is supposed to look old and scary for the party!" Geesh.

More rain today - pond ran over the road again. Beavers have skirted the bark on three of my younger live oaks so they will be firewood by the end of next summer unless they fall down on their own before then.

Cold day here - actually got a chance to wear some tall winter boots over my jeans today at work.

This eve is really nice. Simmering some homemade beef stew while watching the deer grazing on my newly sprouted rye just off my back patio!
