Oh This Weather!!

Geesh can the weather remember this is Southern California? Hot and dry for a few days then suddenly humid yesterday and then rain all night and into today. No one playing out back, my three year old is on my last nerve. I dash out to pick up something that should not be all wet and swoosh right into a big pile of dog poop. Great!



Even my vines are confused. They are out of control with this damp April. We usually are dry by now around these parts.


The chickens have been shuttled back and forth to the garage as we figured we'd have all summer to get a rain gutter on the overhang above them and a cover over their coop but no it is not done and yes the chickens were freaked out by the huge drops coming off of the roof. As we were carrying them to the garage by poor daughter slipped and her ten foot long legs twisted like a pretzel and down she went but never dropped that chicken.


Poor girl. She grew another half inch according to doctor and is 5'10". That is a lot of leg and arm for a 14 year old. She is always hurting herself. Poor babe. She will adjust to them someday.

Now my good friend Ginger at Small Town USA is have an anniversary giveaway over at her blog. Head over to enter and say hi!

we have had a bit of rain and now we are going into a cold snap.
I hope it was your dog's poop.

Poor darling girl but she will grow into those legs. You are doing great with the chicks.

POOP! Oh man that is terrible. I think i would puke. This weather is crazy. It really makes me feel sick, literally..I don't think my body has to time to adjust to the change in temp. And this mugginess is gross. Your daughter is taller than me...whew. I am 5'8. Shes not even done growing. Hope you have a lovely sun shiny day in Cali! Mica

Weather is such a BIG influence on me and how I feel, so I understand that YUK of your bad weather. Sure hope tomorrow dawns sunny and bright!

Terri said...

What I'd give to be 5' 10"...I don't envy the job of finding clothes long enough, though!

We had 95 degrees here yesterday and broke a 111-year-old record. We normally don't have 90's until June. I fear it is going to be a long hot summer...

Can the weather everywhere get any crazier! It's like it's June here. Very warm and humid today and I almost froze Tuesday!! grrrr.. The dog poop, not so good, yuk... hope your day is better tomorrow. Thanks so much for posting my blog and my giveaway. I'm very excited. You are so sweet to me. Thank you so much. Good luck!!!

In my mother's era, girls with any nice height to them walked bent over to try to hide their height. Isn't that horrid! There is nothing more beautiful than a tall girl who carries herself like a queen.

That's one beautiful chicken, BTW.

Cindy said...

Interesting weather! It has been very dry here, normally we get quite a bit of rain. Perhaps you're getting our rain. You can have it, you probably need it more than we do.
Hugs, Cindy

I have those vines and they're just taking over. I hope we get some rain to give my new front garden a boost.

It has been a crazy Spring here, too. the weeds have a nasty head start! My daughter is 5'10" and was that tall when she was in 10th grade and never grew another inch. I know it is hard for them. My 3 little granddaughters are each the tallest in their class. Daddy is 6'4" and Mom is 5'10". None of them mind it so far- xo Diana

It was so warm and humid here today! Makes it almost miserable to be outside..

Leslie said...

crazy weather here also ~ rainy today and more expected for the weekend. Yuck.
the chickens are getting big fast!
Have a very tall glass of wine and a romance novel.. that should help those tested nerves. Enjoy your weekend.

We're in SoCal too, and yes....the weather has been bonkers!! The rain last night was crazy but I have to say...the noise helped me sleep so well!! I miss the rainy summer nights at my grandmother's Ouse and it took me right back there! The chicks have gotten so big!

Kris said...

I know...crazy weather!! Hot and dry, then muggy and rainy, then windy. Sheesh!!
Chickens are big!!

Claudia said...

The weather seems to be crazy everywhere! I remember the days, at least in San Diego, where we had about 1 week of humid weather a year. Now, it seems to come much more often.
