07:10, 74F, clear. sun's up. roosters crowing. snagged dixie when she came out from under the house to finish off pup's dinner and put her in the pen where she will stay for a few days until she understands that bruiser is gone, thunder won't hurt her, and we are all friends.. she grew up in the pen so it's nothing new and unfamiliar. hung out a wash.
11:20. low tide rising at CK. great blue on the oyster bar.
fed cat. finished mending final back-up trawl. hoping that chantel will just move out into the atlantic. cat got salmon for supper.
16:10: high tide at #4 bridge. brief but intense rain storms after 2 p.m. black to the north.
less than a quarter tank of gas, the gas gauge nudging the red line, heading for the crossroads' pure gas, 25 miles away where it's hot and sunny. hay guy calls. square bales just coming out of the field. get gas! feed run. hay run.
17:40, 85F, dry, hazy at the farm. unload feed and hay. barn smells lovely. sheep and donkey chores early. got 5 eggs. wash dry.
20:40, 82F., still hazy. mostly cloudy. cirrus.
mosquitoes - small, sharp ones. dogs fed and walked. guard dog digging a hole by the truck. good night, sheep.
