Yes... Yet another two edged sword for me. I still have 2 more days worth of Bush hogging and was hoping to finish by tomorrow evening. Pushed it hard yesterday and was on the tractor in the rain with headlights on until the storm got bad last night. But... The grass and garden needed it I suppose more than I needed to work today. Apparently it's God's way of making sure I take a day off. ;-)

Very true. He has a way of telling us what we need to be doing.

To me, death is a spiritual thing. Everything in life must die. Everything in life, must take life in some form to live. Life begets life. We can't get around it. What we can do is respect that life. Take care of what takes care of us. Treat your food like it will soon become part of you, it will.

We have been missing all the rain too and we have almost 2 inches so far and the ground is soaking it up, thank goodness all the hay has been baled. 


Shortly after I  made this post we had a little cloud burst, ¼".

I need to do some bush hogging but have to take the harrow off first. My DH has been out of state. When he came home he has had a wicked cold so the harrow is still on the tractor. It is nice when there is help to take it off and store it the way he wants it stored.

For the past 5 years, summer has  been dry here.  This summer it has been cooler and filled with rain.  We spent money changing our pool filter system over to salt water.  Yet the pool has had very little use.  Still the water is nice and clear.

Currently I have a surplus of Red Stars and Black Pullets.

California born and raised here so the idea of having rain in the summer is just plain weird :P

We see zero from around May to October----dusty !
