Weather coming in

My beautiful field almost ready to be baled and now there is weather coming in early this afternoon. So I am going to try and get it baled and into the barn before the storms roll in. There are three fields like this.  I cannot lose another lot.  I think most will be well dry – I gave them an extra turn on the weekend. If they are a little heavy I will salt them and pack them loosely.

I have other things to tell you but they must wait while I fret about the hay.

Do you remember that dream I had years ago about a world where the clouds  had strings hanging down from them. And as they floated past a person could grab the string and walk along with a big fluffly cloud in tow. Maybe to water your garden, or fill the water tanks or give you shade while you garden or rinse your shampooed hair.

Well, I wish I could  be out there in the middle of the field today in my red raincoat and black red stripe gumboots watching that bad tempered jaggedy black flashing storm cloud snarling above me. And I wish I could catch its flying string and haul  it away from my hay field  – pulling  with all my summer strength.  Just to give the hay a little more time. Spiteful cloud.

  1. Crossing everything. Which is making hand quilting a bit tricky… Love the description of your rain gear, so cheerful and defiant of the bad black clouds.

  2. Hay man cometh! Bribe him with fresh baked bread and Lady Astor’s butter if necessary.

  3. Love that snout poking through. Rain, Rain, go away, Come again another day. Good luck.

  4. Sending positive thoughts your way today! Rain Rain Stay away! Celi’s got to get in her hay!

  5. Sending warm, dry, sun-filled thoughts and energies your way!!! xo

  6. Spiteful cloud, indeed! Hope all these good wishes from all round the world keep the rain at bay till you get the hay inside. Sounds like you have a massive day on your hands… so just know we’re all behind you! ~ Mame 🙂

  7. Yes good good luck. I’m on pins and needles about what else you have to tell us!

    • Oh, and I’m guessing that perhaps the “print of an inquisitive pig’s snout” is part of your other news as yet to be revealed? ; )

  8. I would cheerfully come to tug away a rain cloud or two to help with the fires here in the Yosemite area and elsewhere out here. WE NEED IT!
