rain, finally

We are so thankful for the rain last night.  After more than two weeks without rain, and with very hot days, we were getting worried about the seedlings we'd already planted.  Fortunately, the work Adam puts into cover cropping and soil amendment helps with moisture retention and it seems that most of the seedlings fared well.

Slowly but surely I'm working on my february lady sweater.  Inspired by Sarah's project with the peace fleece wild mustard color and Kim's february lady sweater, I decided to make one for myself.  A slight mistake in the lace meant that I pulled out several inches.  It's been hard for me to motivate myself to keep working on it now.  But I do love the color and love knitting with peace fleece.

rained out


For the past couple of months, I've been trying to walk a mile a day.  
That is not an easy thing to do around here--with something always coming up on the farm.
I try to go without the kids (or maybe just 1 in a stroller) 
but that sometimes doesn't happen unless I go after dark.  

Lately, my walks have been getting rained out just as I'm about to go...
like last night, as we sat on the porch watching the third storm of the day roll in.
