We have rain. Yesterday it was hot and muggy and my husband was feeding the wild animals their weekly quota of corn. It has been so dry, they have gone from eating 300lbs. every ten days to eating that amount in four or five days. Thank heaven we only have one domestic creature to feed, or we would be in bankruptcy. We woke up in night to storms and rain continues at mid-morning. Seemed like a good day to think of fall and open-house at Leolas--took some photos of objects included in inventory and destined for same; Much junk to work on and a cool trunk brought to me by Bud, who keeps our house in decent condition by doing odd-jobs. He just painted fences and touched up porches. My husband isn't so good with tools, but works everyday to make sure we can give someone else a job. I took photos,also, of Danny feeding corn yesterday--and photos of yard this morning. The rain has already made a huge difference.


  1. Wow, and I thought feeding my birds and squirrels were expensive! Isn't this rain amazing? We're over our quota already!! Today really does get us in the mood for Fall!

  2. What crazy weather here too, but it sure makes for a beautiful sky. Me and Scratchy were playing in the new shop when the rains came, I love rain on a metal least we now know we only have leaks under the garage door and nowhere else...I can live with that!!!

    Have a cooler weekend!
