~ Dooms Day ~ Broccoli & Egg ~ Mac & Cheese ~

Good 49º cloudy morning.
What a day yesterday was. I discovered the weather guys said it was to rain last night and then today and tomorrow. So, I wanted to get the spraying done. No pressure in the spray rig. Dave had just worked on it and he said it was good to go. Drat. On top of not being able to get it to work, it had a flat tire! So I had to fine the air thingy and get it down to the tractor shed and fill  the tire. Hope it's still up today! Then I put on the sprayer backpack to hand spray. It wouldn't hold pressure and then the hose broke loose. SH*T!!!!!!! So frustrating being a girl and not being able to fix these things. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.  The spray went down the back of my pants so had to come in and put the pants in the washing machine and wash off my leg. Sigh.....
So, I planted a tomato, some Swiss Chard, and potted some lemon balm. Seems like a wasted day.
Breakfast was interesting. I had some al denté cooked broccoli so I drizzled in olive oil, put it in a pan, added grape tomatoes, cooked crumbled bacon (buy it in a bag at easy to use in recipes), and some grated cheese, and then poached an egg and set it on top.
I filled the hummer feeders and nyjer seed feeders. When I was outside I saw this young deer walk over to the barn and lay down in the shade. She looks like her mom probably had a new baby or babies and kicked her away to fend for herself. You can hardly see her in the first picture... but, she was watching me!

How cute is that!!!
It clouded up in the afternoon...
Maggie and I went down to get the mail.. Mr. Lizard was sunning himself atop a post...
At 9pm it was raining. Not enough to measure.
