It was a beautiful weekend....the weather was perfect and the birds were out in all their glory. Captured a picture of this one (not sure what bird it is/was) as it flew off from another tree. They were out in full force, gliding around the sky over the farm. It was funny how I'd be working and get the big shadow pass across the ground where I was working. The first few times it was distracting and made me look up, but then it became kind of peaceful. I was doing my thing, they were doing theirs.
This lady was not the least bit interested in what I was doing in the yard. I think she stayed there the entire time and just looked over occasionally, usually when I made a mooing noise (I know, I know, who can't resist mooing when there is a cow around...or is that just me?).
|Clearing a bit more land|
This is one of the awesome parts..."R" from 2nd Family borrowed his friend's brush hog (bush hog? I never know which it is) to clear their front pasture. He then asked me if we minded if he cleared some places on our property. Free land clearing? Go for it! So he followed some of my trails and made them wider, but then he cleared some entirely NEW areas. He cleared around the pond site, circled it completely, and gavels access to parts of the property we've never been able to get too. Some of that was filled with an exciting (hopefully anyway) new discovery, but more on that later.
We left the windows open and the breeze aired out the house and freshened things up. No a/c and it was so cool and nice...these kinds of days are rare in these parts so we enjoyed it while we could. We vacuumed the floors, and vacuumed up all the dead bugs from the windowsills. (where DO they come from?). The good news is that we are also still "creature free" and the live trap that we borrowed was returned to 2nd Family. There didn't seem to be any activity either, so next weekend, the plan is to seal up that hole in the attic/roof line so that we can cross out fingers for the best for this Winter.

We hope you all had a good weekend doing what makes you happy!
