Wednesday afternoon

Today we had our first veggie out of the garden I have been waiting for something to be ready and today was the day. Not a very large head though, probably has something to do with all the rain we have been having lately. It was wonderful though. There are also some tomatoes that are starting to turn. Can't wait for those.

Today was my afternoon off. I had to run some errands in town and stopped off at Wal Mart to pick up a few things I can't seem to find anywhere else. They had the basket of zinnas out front and at a good price, so naturally I bought one. I guess you would say I am a sucker for flowers. Besides, if they die I will have that cute basket to put something else in.

There was a little knitting going on. Seems like in the summer I don't accomplish much on the knitting front. I love being outside so usually knitting gets put off until evening and then I'm to tired. Below is the sock I have been working on. Actually I have another sock started but I'm stuck, so I have to wait until the girl that taught the class comes back from vacation. By the time she gets back I hope to have this one to the point I'm stuck at and spend an afternoon in the local knitting shop figuring out where I go wrong.

We have had so much rain. We had over an inch between yesterday at 5:00 p.m. and this morning. We are constantly watching the weather as we have hay to make. We still have not made our first cutting. Pretty much everyone around us in the same predicament. I did see that in the next 7 days there is only 1 day with isolated showers so maybe we will be making hay soon.
Well, better get moving. I have to give the horses hay and water. Tom is working an extra shift today. He is a mechanic for a Reddy Mix concrete company so when they have night pours they like him to be there. Really messes up his sleep though, since he worked all day today, will get home around 1 o'clock and go back by 7:00 tomorrow. They are doing this again tomorrow night but I don't think he is going. You have to sleep sometime.
Until next time...
