If you follow us on social media, you know that central Indiana has basically been through a monsoon. It rained for 9 days in a row. Mostly all day rains, with some heavy storms.
I was going crazy. My yard was soaked, with grass and weeds growing lush. Too soft with too much mud for me to cut. The dogs were going crazy. Too much mud to let them out in the big yard, too much rain for walks.
This weekend, we got a break.
It was 60 degrees and sunny both days. Mud be damned, I let the dogs out into the big yard.
After spending Saturday completing some much needed barn chores, I took Faolan for a nice long walk on our property Sunday.
I let him lead the way, and he led me to the creek immediately.
After all the rain, it was too deep for me to cross in my Bogs, and too cold to cross otherwise. But he had no problem going in.
After the rain, the water is brown and fast. There was still mud everywhere. But everything is green and lush, with wildflowers and beautiful weeds everywhere.
The sunshine was much needed, long overdue. The rain was cleansing, but the sun was freeing.
I could have spent Sunday doing some needed chores - cutting a ton of grass, weeding, weed eating. Instead I choose to spend my beautiful day off with my beautiful dogs.
I have no regrets. The grass could wait.
