It was another day in the neighborhood at Sea Hag Soaps & Art
Mercantile. I had my little niece picking flowers for around
the inside of the barn
and had two nephews loading wood into the wood shed with one of my
after that we started digging up garlic and bundling it.The
ground was DRY,DRY, DRY ! I'm not much of a water er so it's whatever
weed and veggie survives at this point- WINS.
There was a moment I thought I was CLOSE to a complete thought
when the skies got black and the rain was driving walls of rain at
45 degree angles. OMG-my baby chicks were out in it!!
I asked Bridie(regular Hag)to give me a hand getting the chicks back
into their pen,she responded by saying she had no rain jacket so I pulled
on my great ankle Muck boots,threw her our one rain rain jacket
and went out into the storm.
I was soaked right through in the first five seconds,but it truthfully
felt GREAT after being so SWEATY these last few days.
The chicks were smart enough to seek shelter in the high grass so
they were wet but feathered out enough so they were fine.We grabbed
them two at a time and thought we'd gotten them all back into their
sheltered home ;only to discover later another six chicks still out.
Heading back inside-Bride looked at her very professionally wet boss,
started laughing and said."I really wish I had a camera right now."
I went back to work in wet clothes,bad hair and loving being a farm girl.
leaving me without one and ran out into the storm
