Rained out!

Those are 2 of the loveliest words in the English language!


It's 3:30 am so that's the only picture you get. :) Moonlight reflection of the rain puddles.
Today was our last day of Cow Works for the week.

We'll have another week to work the Corrientes in the middle of June, but we're done with the beef cows. Woke up this morning at 2 to the glorious sound of rain fall. I popped out of bed to throw open a window and crawled back in under the quilts to savor the smell. Heaven is going to smell like rain and barns and horses. I'm convinced of it. And quite possibly cinnamon rolls.




I wish someone had invented smellavision for sharing via the Internet because I need it for this post today. It is absolutely the most amazing thing to wake up to rain and cinnamon rolls.

I made cinnamon rolls last night and popped them in the oven at 3 this morning. DH called everyone on the crew and canceled the day's works. .5 in the rain gauge at 3 this morning. North camp had .7" and the radar looked better on the north end. Finished branding yesterday and planned on moving the heifers across the highway to Adobe pasture today. Called off the brand inspector too. They were coming out to help stop traffic when we crossed cattle.

I also have an entire Pea Picking Cake in the fridge so if anyone has a mind to head this way, I've got breakfast and dessert covered . Just don't expect me to be up at 3 am tomorrow. :)
