Today is rest day.
We've had an extremely busy week with two home showings, and a garage sale, and all that goes with it.
We are finally getting some very much needed rain. Our grass is getting very brown. The good thing about a drought is the grass grows slower, but the bad thing is the ugly brown color. Since we're trying to sell the house, we want green.
We currently have the entire 11+ acres mowed! All at one time! That's a rarity for us, and something usually only reserved for company! I finally finished up the pasture yesterday.
We have a bunch of hummingbirds and they are chasing each other all over the place. Al was in the golf cart the other day and one flew between his chest and the steering wheel. That's a little close!
No sign of our foxes so we fear the worst. We have still been seeing one raccoon though and when he's cute enough, he gets fed. He's pretty cute!
Al found an interesting item in his shed yesterday, in a old squirrel nest he was tearing down. I haven't had a chance to get a picture yet, but will do so soon. We couldn't believe it.
I am still planning on keeping up this blog until we sell the house and become full time rv'ers, but unfortunately nothing much has been happening around here lately. We have no garden planted and my summer flowers have about had it. It'll be a while before we start getting any real fall color.
Right now we are monitoring the hurricanes/tropical storms in the Gulf. When they get into the Gulf, we have to start to worry. So far, so good.
Al is watching the Buccaneer's play (and already doing a lot of yelling) and I'm planning to stay away and watch a movie in the bedroom! It's the safest place to be during a football game :)
