Rain makes us slow down

It’s raining. Thank goodness…..

The yard, the pastures, the garden always seem to explode after a nice soaking rain. But I didn’t have everything planted in the garden yet. We knew it was coming so the morning was a blur of activity.


Phil was a perfect gentleman, waiting his turn to momma. 2 gallons later and after momma time, they were all released to the pasture.


Look at that boy! 3 weeks old already! And so smart! Look at him exploring that rock!


Maisy- bomb! Two seconds after this snap, she licked the bits off her nose. And got a little slobber on me in the process. Ewww.


The piglets are absolutely loving the sweet Maisy milk mixed with their grain. They are putting on weight nicely. We don’t have names for them yet. Which is kind of weird. Usually the kids name them at the moment of birth. Or in this case, when they arrive on the farm.

But only this little girl has a name so far. Penney, in response to her color, I guess.


The rain came early and pushed us inside.


Misty, chilly and wonderful.


I didn’t get everything planted in the garden. (pics of the garden when the rain quits).

But it is good to get a chance to slow down.



At least now we’ll get caught up on the laundry. 🙂


Today’s count: 33 eggs, 3.5 gallons milk

What’s for supper: Chili mac with a salad and homemade blue cheese dressing

Weather:  Rain. The rain could be heavy at times. High near 62. Southwest wind 8 to 14 mph becoming southeast in the afternoon. Winds could gust as high as 20 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%. Tonight rain before midnight. Patchy fog after midnight. Low around 45. South southeast wind 6 to 9 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90%.
