Also take a look at one of the pumpkin patches we planted 2 days ago. We couldn't get them in because we had gotten so much rain. Then we do plant it and we got 4 1/2 inches of rain in two days. Yikes!
Maybe I just need some sleep in my nice warm bed, I'm a little chilly from being outside. And wet. And cold. Now I truly do want to snuggle up to Big D...I mean have 3 little kids crammed into the center of the bed between me and D because of the supposed storm coming. When that happens we each get about a 10 inch strip that we can lay on or we fall off the bed. I don't know about him, but I fight for that 10 inches, I'm tired when I hit the hay and all I want is my soft bed.
Each kid has a secret weapon though:
- Grace, her big toe nail. I could swear I feel it rake across my cheek some nights. I think she's part ninja the way she kicks and cuts.
- Rachel, is like laying in bed with a soaker hose turned on warm. She is a sweater. Ron sweats too, you get the both of them in bed, yikes. One night I woke up in between both of them we were all wet. I don't even like my own sweat. I know she's cute but sheesh!
- Levi has the worst though...gicki. Gicki is his name for his smelly disgusting paper thin scrap of a blanket that he sleeps with and sucks on. At first it was the size of a single bed. Then we cut it in half. Then we lost one half, now we cut it down every chance we get. i was it every week and it still stinks. He sneaks into bed quiet as a mouse, but blows his cover with his cover. Y-U-K!
So a new day, and today we have sun and a strong breeze, which is just the right medicine for all this muck around here. Up on Grape Hill the grass is LONG! I sent Kara up there with the rider to mow since it was dry enough. She got stuck in the clay at the bottom of the hill...rookie. =)
The weeds in the rows up on the hill are so high that the thistle heads are being grabbed by the grape vines and it's a huge mess to say the least.
Did I just admit to you how bad my weed issue is? Good grief! I better get back at it!
Happy trails and weed whipped thistle plants,
