Farm life is experiencing a brief rain delay.
Sadly, I just don't have much of anything interesting to share with you.
I promise, it's coming....just not while we are on rain delay.
Although we venture out for the necessities of animal care,
we are spending our days indoors while it pours and pours.
The good news is...
the grass is getting greener,
everything is beginning to flower,
and the leaves are starting to emerge.
And so, we use this brief respite to rest up a bit before the flurry of activity
that will occur when the sun comes out.
Unfortunately, this weather makes for a very restless puppy.
Annie is at that stage where she needs tons of exercise.
When the rain slows to a drizzle, we head out of doors with Sam and Oakley
and our tennis balls for some fetch.
Annie is off leash now most all of the time.
She has been a model citizen.
She idolizes Oakley, and they have learned to share in the game of fetch...
each taking subsequent turns chasing the ball.
When it is Oakley's turn, however, Annie chases along behind him...
which is great, because this gives her double the exercise.
As for the rest of the animals on the farm...
they are all patiently waiting for the sun to re-emerge.
Hopefully this will happen tomorrow.
And then the garden work resumes.
In the mean time, I am finishing up a couple knitting projects...
like this summer scarf (my second) knit from cotton/cashmere blend.
It's light weight, has a great drape, and is perfect to dress up a colored t-shirt.
The rain is to stop today....hurray!!!
Hopefully the animals will return to their usually shenanigans.
