It's wet here.

It's been raining off and on all day here. I had to wait this morning to go out to feed animals and do the milking til about 9:30. And tonight it was almost dark when I got out to milk again. Those goats do not like getting wet at all.

We sure did need this soaking rain. I can almost hear all the veggies out in the gardens growing and thanking God for the rain. I am thankful as well. I was getting a bit worried about my turnip greens and spinach and kale. All the fall green things. And it's supposed to be cooler too which they will love.

I noticed a lot of color in the trees on the way to town today. Little hints here and there. I hope we have a pretty fall this year. We have had rain so that should help. Lots of leaves falling too. It's beginning to feel like fall here! I am ready for some cool temps. But not too cold yet.

Goats seem to think they are going to melt if they get wet. It's been raining here too. I will be so excited for our barn to be completed enough for me to move my milking stand off the porch. Then I won't have to get half soaked leading grumpy goats back and forth!

Yes, my goats do not like rain. Not one bit. They whine like babies. And I have to bring them lots of hay. But I do love them.
