Since my last post it rained almost every day for a month. Now, I love a good, dark, dreary rainy day, but this got to be a bit ridiculous and depressing. A few days of sunshine though and my spirits brightened. Of course, as I am writing this, since feeding time this morning it has rained over 4 inches, (really - I checked the rain gauge just a bit ago!) but after a few days of hot, humid Florida weather, I welcome the rain, as do our fruit trees.
Not only did we have daily rain, but during this past hiatus we spent a few days preparing for Hurricane Isaac. Thankfully it moved off to the west of an earlier projected path which would have brought it close to home. Wasn't that some coincidence - Hurricane Isaac making landfall exactly 7 years to the day AND the day of the week, Wednesday, August 29th AND the same area that Hurricane Katrina did?!
So here is a brief rundown of some of the happenings around the homestead since I last posted. I plan to go into more detail - stories, how to's, and whatnots of some of these events in the near future.
In the past month WE HAVE...
* Started a new school year
