07:20, 73F, stiff breeze from SW. overcast. slept late! all 2 roosters singing. cabbage palms whipping around. gotta walk the dogs. guard dog snoozing in sheep barn. sheep in pasture. 3 deer in cactus field border by the big grape vines. new green leaves sprouting from all the oaks and deciduous trees. azaleas have put out new blossoms to replace those killed by the freeze several weeks ago. carolina wrens busy. crows stealing reddog's breakfast..
12:01, 79F, stiff wind from the SW. partly cloudy, partly sunny. lil rooster went back to his aviary. guess he's realized that it's a smart move. he tried challenging big red but that didn't work and the laying hens were unapproachable so he back-tracked. somewhere there has to be someone nearby with some banty hens for sale. will keep looking. got 2 eggs.
storms out in the gulf - leading edge to a cold front. supposed to get here tonight. did 2 tubs of wash which are out on the clothes line getting blow dried. lovely out!
15:10, 79F, some wicked gusts from SW. CK is getting gusts up to 30 knts. limbs dropping. a big one on the falling-down-horse-barn. clothes all dry. got 3 more eggs. sold 3 doz. eggs last week.
helps buy chicken feed which is almost up to $14/50 lbs. outrageous! gave sheep and donkeys hay. 4 deer loafing under the oaks along the fence line of the cactus field when I walked the dog at dusk.
20:00, 75F, wind's wailing out there from SW. lightning flashes in the NW. distant thunder. waxing gibbous moon riding high in the sky. venus and jupiter slowly approaching each other. a blustery night with mostly cloudy skies.
