Celebrate!!! During the night we were awakened by thunder, lightening and heavy rain beating against the windows and roof. What a wonderful, wished for, dreamed of sound! Drifting back to sleep with the sound of rain falling gently on the earth, I could almost hear the grasses, plants and trees slurping up the much needed moisture, I could almost hear the celebration and rejoicing taking place all around us!
It's been a long, long time since we've had a rainy day. The rain has continued off and on most the morning. Sometimes heavy... running across the fields, tumbling over the rocks and rushing into the ponds. Sometimes slow and steady... kissing the leaves of parched trees and sliding down their trunks to pool around the roots... slipping onto thirsty blades of grass and settling the dust to gather in puddles to nurture the earth and all it's creatures. What a glorious day!
All the animals seem to be enjoying the cooler weather and the rain. Here are some pictures from today.
Mike is busy with building Roy Rogers a new house. Roy's not too happy about the rain. As you may know goats think they will melt in the rain. :) They hate getting wet!
Just some other pictures to share. Hope your week is great!!
Russell Ranch is located in beautiful NE Oklahoma, just a few miles from the Illinois river in Green Country. There are lovely rolling hills, lots of wonderful lakes and rivers, and forests full of wildlife.
