I don't ever remember so much mud in July...and its almost August. By now the ground should be hard as a rock and dust flying around. This may not seem desirable to some, but it is when I am trying to go in here and get the eggs and find myself slipping and sliding around. Not to mention the smell when things stay so wet. Its not like this when its wet in the wintertime, cause its cold. Just as I think its going to dry up another round of thunderstorms comes in. I guess I should be thankful since Georgia is supposedly in a drought. Some areas moreso than others though.
Above it a video of me letting everyone out for the day. As you can see, its muddy. In case your wondering what that little white fence is attached to the gate, its a smaller doorway for the chickens to get in and out without the goats and emus being able to get in there throughout the day. I just bring it across and strap it to the pole and walah...just chickens can get in.
I talked to Sherry on the phone Sunday for a while. I had talked to her for a few minutes on Saturday but things were too hectic around there for her to talk without distraction so we set up for me to call her Sunday at 1.
We talked about it and decided it would be a good idea for me to come and visit on a Monday and Tuesday. Ian will be off and Shelby can stay home. Sherry said she was welcome to come too, but I told her truthfully Shelby is a teen now and would just get bored with us old ladies. ;) She agreed. Also, Kelsey will be back in school so she won't be clinging to Sherry and wanting to be right there wherever we may be and go. Its just easier to visit and talk when its just Sherry and I and not a talkative 8 year old. I thought this was a great idea, and so I will be going to visit and spend the night with her August 11 and 12. Its a three hour drive so I will just spend the night there and come back the next day.
I do miss her and I know with the new baby, well its just not going to be practical for her to come up here. It will be that way for a long time to come now. So if we are going to see each other I will have to go there. I dont mind. I dont go anywhere much anyway, so it will be good to get out on the open road and be with my thoughts. Once there I know we will not shut up the whole time I am there. We are both chatterboxes. ;)
I dont have a lot going on today. I haven't felt up to snuff the past few days. I don't know what it is, I cant really put my finger on it. I need to snap out of it though. I am going to shower and go to town I think, just to get out. I need to pick up feed for the animals anyway.
Have a good Wednesday everyone. :) Checking out this new map thing I saw Dad using...lets see where everyone is coming from that visits me! :)
