Although the weather has been beautiful here in OK, there has been no rain since early September. The weatherman has been forecasting more of the same – no clouds, no rain, no moisture in the air, warm sunny days through the weekend. So why did we have a big thunder/lightning/rainstorm last night? It must be because we cut our hay. Toby says it is a sure rainmaker – kind of like washing your car. For those who are not farmers, the hay is cut and left to dry for a day or two depending on the moisture. Then it is raked up and baled. If it rains on the cut hay, it has to be left to dry longer - maybe raked up and turned over to dry some more. If it is baled too wet, it could mold. Hay can actually combust if put up too wet. We went to bed last night about 10 PM, and our friendly neighborhood hay-baler was still working. It stormed early this morning about 3 AM. By the light of the early morning, it looks like the hay all got baled – yeha!
Although I felt better yesterday, I did not have art. Jesse and I stayed home to rest and try to get well. It was nice to have her home with me – like old times. Too bad we were both sick. We just lay around most of the day. I had to go to an Art Guild meeting last night and it wore me out. This morning, I feel better, but still sound like Mae West. I think another day of rest and recuperation is in order. Thanks for your concern and prayers.
