Yesterday we played the waiting game. Just to switch things up, this was sunrise and it's pretty obvious we were waiting for rain. Didn't have to wait long, as it started sprinkling as I was letting the chickens out and pouring by the time I'd finished in the barn. Needless to say, the girls were not happy, but I didn't have to coax anyone to come in to be fed/milked. They clustered together outside the door, awaiting their turn.
We got a good, steady rain most of the day and that damp chill crept into the house. When the quilted jacket was no longer enough, I lit the first fire of the year in the wood stove (thanking the guys as I did so). After a short wait, warmth filled the room. Ahh.
It was a good day.
