Threat of rain

The skies are overcast, and there's rain in the forecast. That's the only explanation I can give for why I've already been outside today.

I've scattered half the grass seed (or maybe less: grass seed goes a long way) and two bales of hay about the back yard. Hay goes further than I'd expected, as well. I let the dogs out into the yard when I was done, they seemed curious about the hay. Dizzy rolled in it. It looked like Flood didn't necessarily like the way it felt to walk on it. It seemed to confuse her, as to where she was supposed to pee.

So, did I mention I'm mildly allergic to hay? I have interesting red dots on my arms now. But I don't itch anymore -- I came in and took a shower. And now that I've looked at the time, I realize I can go out and do the flower gardens, too, weather permitting.

I'm glad I put this off until today. It's so much more fun to work outside on a cloudy day. ;)
