Sickness and Rain Gang Together... Uggh

It has been a long and dreary couple of days. The nasty, cold, wet weather and this head cold I have the beginnings of, makes me feel... blah. That means, no pictures or video to share from the weekend. Thankfully, I also have one of God's most precious gifts; a kind and capable husband. I don't have many updates to the farm's goings-ons because Sean has kindly cared for the beasts these past couple of days, allowing me to sleep, rest, and take it easy on myself. For that, I am so appreciative.

This rain has been relentless with wide spread power outages in the Bangor area reported. For us, that has also meant that the temporary tarp roofing over the new barn framing has been subject to an onslaught of water and wind. The combination won out today and ripped over part of the horse's stall. Sean spent his lunch repairing it. She doesn't seem to mind this weather; I have seen her in the field most of the morning grazing on the greening grass. In contrast, the goats have chosen to huddle under their shelter, clever creatures that they are. The rain is supposed to let up over night and stop mid morning tomorrow, with occasional showers through the rest of the week. I am looking forward to that!

One good thing, Sean has reported that one of the female mallards that had flown the coop last week, decided to return to the warmth and safety of captivity. We are hopeful the other runaway will either be similarly inclined, or join a wild flock for safety from other predators.

More later!
