Today is Tuesday, September 28, 2010. The rains have arrived again. It poured buckets yesterday starting late morning. Just when you thought it was going to stop, here is come again. From the looks of it this morning, it is going to do more of the same today.
Yesterday was just one of those days. It looked nice out so I hung out the laundry, then off to let the chickens out and get their house cleaned up. No sooner got their house cleaned and the thunder boomed. Here come the black clouds and rain. It didn't start out with that little sprinkle and then start the down pour, no it just started the down pour. Ran back to get the clothes off the line, then back to the front to get the chickens back into their house. Of course the little white one and trouble thought they would like to stay and play in the rain. So be it girls, play in the rain. They do look funny when they are wet. Not really much to them, they are all feathers. Then with the rains brought the power outages, I so need to get more battery operated clocks. No sooner would I get them all set and it would go out again. Gave up on setting them until late last night, had to stop all of those flashing lights.
Guessing that it was going to rain all day, started making candy. Was able to get eight dozen mints made, only another 37 dozen to go. I figure that in a week the mints will be done and then on to the chocolate candies. I usually make the little fruit cakes last they are the easiest. Would like the cooler weather to be here before the oven starts going for hours.
Got into my car and the set was wet, this doesn't make me a happy camper. Why is my seat wet? Of course the first thing that came to my mind was George what have you done?. After checking out the situation, I find that I need a new top. UGH..... Of course this is going to happen when the rain is coming down by the buckets full. So I ordered another top, sure hope it gets here really, really soon.
