We are flooded. Most of the low water bridges are not passable because the water is so high. I have standing water everywhere. We needed the rain but…..now I am worried about mosquitos.
Yesterday Wee One chased frogs around the yard in his rubber boots…..yes frogs!
Scooter isnt too impressed with all the rain.
I love being able to be inside my house and look out a window and watch my horse graze lazily in the pasture……..it is like taking instant valium.
Since the weather is warm, when it is not pouring down rain, I have all the windows wide open. Sometimes when Scooter is near the house (usually under the big tree) he’ll nicker when he hears my voice…..usually talking or better yet,
hollering at Wee One.
I was in the laundry room late Friday morning. The goat ranchers guinness (sp?) hens came over for one of their many daily visits. Wee One was playing with his trucks near the big front windows when the hens started making a huge fuss in the front of the pasture. Wee One came and got me to see the hens. By then, Scooter was over by the hens and looking at something on the ground, he spun away and right then I knew it was something up to no good. So I threw on my rubber boots and went to investigate. It was a baby garter snake. I left it alone, non-poisonous snakes dont bother me unless they are chasing me . They kill bugs and sometimes other poisonous snakes.
But, I think one of the hens killed the baby snake, the light gray one. This hen is kind of mean tempered and will chase…..not to mention it is the loudest in the flock.
If you have never been around these kinds of hens you might not know what I mean by loud. These guinness (sp?) hens are LOUD birds, especially when they get seperated from the flock or are annoyed.
I suppose I should not have been suprised because on Thursday when Son #1 and his friend fished the pond close by, he killed a water moccasin.
I think it is safe to say……..winter is over in Oklahoma. I may be wrong, I dont think so tho.
