I wasn’t doing so well last evening. I was tired, itching (I have poison oak on various places on my body as well as a whole bunch of bug bites), food tasted awful and was craving my addictions (which I did not partake in). I would have liked to have just gone to bed early, but I still needed to up my livestock and the dogs hadn’t been exercised or worked. All in all, they were being very accommodating, but I do like to make sure they get at least one good run in a day.
Around quarter of eight I got dressed and headed out on the ATV. We got more rain yesterday afternoon and early evening. Once I got going with the dogs, I started to feel better. The enjoyment that they get out of just plain flat out running is addictive. I was pleased to see mushrooms growing in the fields and puddles: lots of puddles! What a big improvement over the desert-like ecosystem that has been the norm since last year.
We rounded up the cattle, sheep and poultry and got everyone settled for the night. By that time it was a bit after nine and I called it a night.
I got a good night’s sleep and this morning, everything was much better.
