A Little Better

June 18th, 2015 at 03:12 pm

Well the utility bills came in low this month, so I sent the "extra" $150 to the Roth IRA.

Got lots of stuff done this morning, but still have a lot to do today.

I cleaned out the goat barn and put down new straw to get ready for more rain that is coming. Sigh.

Cleaned out the dog pen, and new straw. Cleaned out the boys goat house, and new straw.

Wethered (goat term for neutering) 2 boy goats who are going to their new home in about a week. Gave 3 goats their shots, and routine medicine.

I was literately soaked to the skin with mud and water after all this. We've had nearly nonstop rain for a couple weeks now, and at least another week to go.

We don't have it as bad as OK or TX. But rivers and streams are still flooding, roads are closing. My entire yard is several inches of standing water. My town is next to a large river, and there is talk about the bridge closing. Which hasn't been done for over 20 years.

My hay is past it's prime, which is sad since I paid to get the fertilizer and it grew beautifully. Literately over $400 worth of grass going to waste out there. If the rain ever stops I should still be able to cut it, but it won't have much nutritional value. So I will probably have to buy some to supplement. The bad thing is, my hay supplier is having the same problem. So I'm not sure if he will have any quality hay either.

    Bummer. You must live in my part of the Midwest. We are inundated with rain, too.

    Yes, here as well: rain and lower electric bill than last year.

    There's been several articles in the paper here recently talking about how the farmers are NOT liking all the rain because it's messing with their planting season.

    FrugalTexan, we've had so much rain that most fields are under water. Or the farmers have still not gotten to plant their seed. Bad, bad, bad.
