We are floating away. According to the rain gauge in Mrs. R. 1st grade class we had 5inches of rain in one day. That didn't surprise me one bit. I saw 5 inches of water everywhere. In Sunny stall, in the llama lounge, in the woodshed and even in the garage. I spent a few hours after work yesterday bailing out. After digging a ditch to carry the water out of the stall Hubby ambled in after work and made the mistake of saying,"Hi, what's up?" Well I filled him in on what was up. The water was up like I hadn't seen it before and the rain has just started. I know it seems like I complain a lot about the rain but do not judge until you have walked a mile in my gumboots. It is mainly the question of hair. I have said before I don't have the hair for this weather. And to make matters worse I have not had a haircut in months and I couldn't do a thing with my mop this morning. I frantically called my hairdresser for an emergency appointment. She didn't have anything. But my friend, the hair police, came to the rescue. She gave me her appointment.
Which can only mean one thing, my hair was worse than I thought.
And speaking of hope, I am surprised at some of the reactions I got from my last post. I got everything from, Wow what a great post, to Man goatgirl has been dipping into the KoolAid....whatever that means. I am a bit floored on how extreme the reaction to this election has been. I am old enough to have been through many presidential elections and this one seems to have brought out the best in people and the worst. I have never seen so much fear, hate, and yes, hope. None of us knows what the future brings. Only time will tell.
Can't everyone just get along?
That's all Moly wants. So let's take a lesson from an old goat. Don't worry about tomorrow. Let's just ask ourselves how we can make today a better day.
I hope you have a good weekend. Stay dry!
