Number of twins born this morning and still not nursing: 1. Inches of rain we've had in the past week: I lost count around 9. Number of times in the past 24 hours I've (very carefully) waded through the (chilly!) overflowing wet weather creek to reach the sheep and the barn on the other side: I lost count around 9.
Number of raindrops landing on the farm as I type this: probably about 86 million. Number of inches the creek has gone up since this morning: about 6. Number of more times I'll be crossing over today: 0. Number of calls from the UPS guy asking Is your driveway washed out—or do you know?: 1. Number of days until we'll be able to drive over to the barn and off the farm: who knows. Number of dry weather loving little lavender plants (which die if the roots stay too wet) I probably shouldn't have planted out in my kitchen garden yesterday (even though it felt so good doing it): 4.
Enough with the rain already, please!
