It's late Monday night. It isounds like a massive storm out there. I suddenly realized that I couldn't remember the Irishman putting up the chickens, so I got a flashlight and went out. The coop was open. The wind is howling and the lightning is in big circular arcs in the sky. As scary as it was to walk across the yard and open that steel fencing and gate, I got the chickens closed up. The trees are swaying and cracking.
The rain is just now coming...and it sounds like a monsoon. I brought my rosemary pot in (it's on a stand and I knew it would blow over.) and I'm thinking that I should go out and take down my hanging baskets off the front porch. Problem is, I can't reach them without a l;adder. And I am sure as hell not standing on an aluminum ladder in this mess. lol I wanted rain, but I don't want my garden plants and fruit trees damaged !!
This is going to hopefully break this hot streak we've had. Today was a barn burner too...
We went to a bbq with some friends today. It was nice...I took baked beans. So I ate that and chips and some salad and a chicken leg. So far, no bad effects from it. Keeping my fingers crossed, and drinking lots of water. The Irishman pigged out and almost went into a meat coma on the drive home. (Luckily, I was driving!) He had a burger, a bratwurst, a hot dog and some chicken. hmmm....Turns out that on his weekend hikes with his buddy, he is eating meat all the time. sigh...he's the one who (for several years) has been saying we should stop eating meat...what's wrong with this picture???? I still don't want to eat it, and what he does is his business...but still.
I had better get off here. It sounds like it's hailing out there, but I just looked out the front door and I guess it's all debris.
I'll be back tomorrow.
