As August winds down, I’m left wondering how did August go faster than July?
This past week the weather has been more fall like than summer. We’ve been enjoying cooler temperatures and brisk mornings. Tuesday and Wednesday were very windy bringing in a cold front. Yesterday we were back into the 90’s and it sounds like summer temperatures are back for this week.
J changed the focus from fencing to hauling hay. We got two big days of hauling last week. Half of the hay was stacked and ready to move. The other half I gathered into loads while J was unloading at the hay corral.
Today, back to the field. With good luck we should get this project completed by mid week.
While J loads hay I read. When the loads are already stacked I get even more reading in. I read The Last Woman Standing by Thelma Adams, a book about Josephine Marcus. We know her better as Josie, the second wife of Wyatt Earp.
The Ladies’ Room, by Carolyn Brown, is a read about the main character over hearing her cousins gossip about her in the ladies room during the funeral their aunt. The news caused the main character to make a few huge life changes and find her inner beauty.
I’m getting a few pullet eggs! In the last few days I’ve gotten 1-2 little white eggs a day. I think they are fun.
I’ve been working on a handful of craft projects. I am crafting on several old windows for my vendor both at the South Dakota Women in Ag Conference. I hope to get them done this week. I’ll be posting pictures my projects closer to conference time.
Sister asked me to make a pallet bookshelf for Miles. Luckily I had two made already. I’ve been contemplating how to “rework” one shelf and was more than happy to comply with Sister’s request.
I am sad to say that I was unable to attend the Nebraska State Fair this year. I missed spending the weekend showing sheep with Mom.
Mom did show South Downs, but look less sheep than years past. Dad, Sister, Miles and family friends helped over the weekend.
I hope your August has been a good one and September is full of all that makes you smile! State Fair, cooler temperatures, football, soup weather and bountiful garden or crop harvests.
Due to Labor Day I’m not going to post next week. I’ll see you back her on September 12th!
