the rain has finally ended but we have flood warnings out. We got 6 inches of rain in a little over an hour not counting all the rest of the day. The run off from the rain will go into the lakes, creeks, ponds and rivers within the next 24 hours so we will have floods. There are already closed roads because of the flooding. I got lots of soap made today and took Vicki (a neighbor) a couple of potted plants for her birthday. Tried to clean the kitchen but I have soap everywhere so its impossible. Milked and fed in the downpour this morning but was able to milk and feed in between showers this evening. The ducks are happy with the weather but the chickens are tired of it. I was going to catch up on some reading but made banana bread instead. Also made a macaroni salad and fresh ice tea. Picked some squash while out in the rain this morning and will be cooking it tomorrow. Need to make cheese tomorrow and finish cleaning the tool shed. Its suppose to be hot and sunny so I will be outside all day. Life on the homestead never stops even for Tropical Depression Alberto! Now go count your blessings!
