-- We moved our winter hay to its "permanent" storage place. Then we ripped the tarp while we tried to cover said hay. Hubby bought a new tarp. (Have you noticed that those plastic tarps barely last one season?) When we lost the barn we also lost our hay storage area inside, so this year our hay sits on pallets and covered with tarps. The only other better-protected-but-still-not-covered spot is too close to the horses, and we know how long that would last, right?
-- We had about an inch of rain on Sunday, with thunder and lightning. I love waking up and listening to rain, it's such a soothing sound, and so welcome after this year's drought.
-- There's green grass growing again in the pasture, a real blessing.
-- I've enjoyed the cooler weather. It's been in the 80's and 90's instead of triple digits. Hurricane Isaac might even bring us some rain this afternoon, after pounding out most of its rage on Louisiana and then blowing inland. We had a surprise sprinkle last evening.
