Yesterday (and today) is a rainy mess again.

I made it out to the farm but when I got there, it was raining.  I was kind of afraid of getting the Jeep stuck in the yard so I had to be careful.  I parked in the highest spot of the yard and was VERY careful when backing up to turn around.

Standing water was everywhere.  I think the total from the prior week was about 5 1/2 inches.  Of course, then it was raining yesterday and today so that total has been increased I'm sure.  There was no watering and no mowing or edging.  That means the mowing next weekend is going to be brutal, ugh.

I drove out there to check the house (fine) and the garden and fruit trees (mostly fine, update tomorrow).  After I was there about an hour, it started raining pretty heavily.  I headed back into town and we've been hunkered down in the rain the rest of the weekend.

Speaking of hunkered down..

...I took this picture of Hobart as I was creating this post.  Yep, he's over there on our his dining room chair that we pushed over to the window on one of our his quilts...sound to sleep on this rainy day.

We keep telling y'all HE'S NOT SPOILED. 😂

Hope you are having a good weekend!


  1. For a cat, he owns a lot of possessions.

    1. Right? Not sure how that happened since he has no visible income...LOL!

  2. And the rain, rain, rain, came down, down, down….
    Hobart’s got the right idea – find a cozy spot and nap.

    1. I know you don't need anymore in your direction. Stay dry!!!

  3. We received another inch of rain yesterday and has been raining off and on today yet.
    Still have some standing water in spots including our ditch which doesn't drain well so can't even get down there with the mower unless you have a boat motor attached.
    Hobart always has the best idea when it comes to cloudy wet days.
