The rain did come, it was constant overnight and with lots of lightning and thunder to boot. It was pretty well varying between lots of rain and even more lots of rain. Very nice, though I was awake a fair bit wondering if the pool would overflow (it's close, so I'll pump out some of the water later today), and are the windows all closed, just how close is the lightning, and with the wind from that direction will the roof leak? The chickens this morning walked outside then came back it to give me the "you're joking, right?" look, and the creek, which was down to a trickle, now looks full and healthy again. The frogs will be happy.
Plenty was accomplished yesterday, from woodworking in the chicken coop (no more roosting on the window sill) to stacking wood to ironing to band rehearsal prep to admin work on the computer for all sorts of things.
This evening brings the very important question: all girls at a sleepover. What to do? It's a tossup between a downtown jazz club (top choice), or a pub & movie, or picking up lobsters to have at home.
