Rainy Season Begins

I awakened very early yesterday morning.
Done sleeping, I decided to greet the day very-pre-sunrise.
Lots of rain was in the forecast and it was due to arrive at daybreak.

I was determined to finish chores before the rain began.

We have an outdoor spot light at the barn, so by the light of the spot,
I looked for glistening piles of manure...
deposits from the previous night.

I have forever held the opinion that "more comes out than goes in!"
If there's one thing that we excel at... it's manure production!

And so with chores finished,
I arrived back at the house just after sunrise.

The rain arrived slightly behind schedule, but made up for it
the rest of the day.
It poured most of the day.

Can you tell?

I spent part of the morning staying with these two while their Mommy
went to an appointment.

This little guy's vocabulary is growing by leaps and bounds.

I spent the afternoon in the sewing room,
and the evening finishing up another Icelandic sweater.

(I still have to take photos of the sewing... waiting for some sunshine to light up the house.)
I am finishing up all indoor activities so that as soon as sunny weather
arrives, I can focus my attention out of doors.

Your weather headed up the coast and we have it this morning. Bleh. My horses grazing fields have huge mud patches at the moment.

Your grands are beautiful!
