The Hounds Prepare For Rain


I could tell after lunch that not much of anything would be done this afternoon, hounds included. The occupants of this house barely had a pulse.



Even though it was not raining Heidi heard the forecast and walked out to the front yard just long enough to dump her tanks. She took her bad weather path behind the Yews, climbed the three steps up to the porch and then jumped into the front yard. She came back the same way, only walking around the porch to get behind the Yews.


Sadie and Stella didn't get any further than this before they came back to the house to go inside. That's really strange for them as they are usually trying to talk me into a walk after lunch.


As much time as they have spent in this area the past 24 hours, I suspect the big blonde cat has paid us a visit sometime in the pre-dawn hours.


The house got so quiet this afternoon you could hear a pin drop. Instead of that, all I heard was constant ringing in my years. The hounds were in such a dream state of sleep, none of them were snoring.


While sitting at the kitchen table playing some Mahjong on my laptop, this piece of machinery drove by the house and made a right hand turn onto that one lane of gravel I was on last week. I have no idea what they are spraying. Since it's wild mustard and they have plans to plant there, my wild guess is that it is weed killer.

Or maybe they are spraying fertilizer before they plow them under????


Just like Heidi, they went back the way they came. I was so lazy I did not even get outside to take this. It's shot it through the kitchen window as I sat at the kitchen table.

It was one lazy afternoon. I heard the sound of thunder after we returned from our afternoon walk without the camera. It seemed like the perfect time to crack open a window in cool weather and take a siesta.

No plans for the weekend, except a 100% chance of a lot of rain here in 'the tropics' of southern Indiana.

  1. Nice sprayer rig, no idea why they would be spraying anything on weeds. Perhaps it is a crop they are growing.

    1. It's not a crop they are growing. The wild mustard comes up every spring and they plow it under to plant corn or soybeans. It will be interesting to see what the wild plants do with the rain in the last 12 hours.

    2. Keep an eye on it and report what happens. After researching Ag articles I really want to know. A pic or two a week would be great. Thanks.

    3. I will. I hope to be the day they start plowing it under. With as wet as the ground is, that might not happen for a week or two since it is suppose to rain more next week.
