1.5" here at headquarters and that's cause for celebration:
It was a loud and rambunctious storm and we gave up trying to sleep by 4. My first thought was, "I'm penciling in a nap today". The garden is celebrating too
And the chickens are hatching an escape plan
We're pretty low key around here. Thought about fishing Saturday morning, but it was too wet to get around and we don't like to tear up our roads, but we ran down the pavement and navigated down one dirt road on the east end to check a few rain gauges:
Catching dirt tank water makes DH's job a lot easier:
I'm still recuperating from my 37 days in Texas. My mom's still in the rehabilitation facility, but they are discharging her on Wednesday so I'm planning another road trip on Tuesday.
Until then, I'm hunkered down on the dirt road, enjoying time with this fella:
Soaking in the song of the Scissor-tail
Finding beauty in everything
Celebrating the miles of space:
And never taking the freedoms we enjoy here in America for granted - we're still "One nation under God" and not only on the 4th, but every day, I give thanks for God and the men and women, past and present who have defended and fought for those very freedoms.
