August is off to a good start with continued cool temperatures and rain. Friday the 2nd we had .85″ and Sunday we had an additional .40″. Last night. it rained again. From what we hear these have been wide spread rains.
It’s fun to go check cattle when the herd is spread out grazing. With these cool temperatures the cattle are very comfortable and the calves are growing.
The replacement heifers are pretty and a little sassy. They enjoy relaxing in the tall grass around the dam. We had them ultrasounded on Sunday.
Due to a combination of factors, the Elm Trees in our yard are dying. Saturday afternoon and Monday morning J and I took several trees out. We also did some tree maintenance. It’s sad to see the trees go and makes the yard look bare. I foresee planting a few trees next spring.
Monday we got several new windows. We have slowly been replacing and updating the house windows. After the May 25th hail storm, our window replacement plan became a priority. I got the house cleaned yesterday afternoon and am pecking away at putting pictures back on the walls and decor set out.
Here’s to August, lets keep the good stuff going!
