Lots of Noise

16 Sep

We’ve had lots of thunder today, but I swear the scattered showers seem to miss my farm by the smallest amount.

We’ve had a few sprinkles and a brief downpour, but it’s still dry under the trees.

Here’s hoping we get some more rain overnight.


I Get to Find Out

15 Aug

I am so happy to say that I will get to find out if a good rain can save my soybean!  Monday morning started with showers.

They were beautiful rain showers that gave me 1 3/4 inches.

If I had known starting to do some dirt work and locking the bucks and llamas out of their shelter for a couple of days was all it would take to get some rain, I’d have done it a month ago.

In other news, I have unhappy llamas.  (But I don’t care because we got rain.)

I hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items at the top of my side bar.

Friday’s Hunt v4.5

4 Aug

Welcome back to Friday’s Hunt. I want to thank everyone who joined in last week. I had a lot of fun visiting everyone who linked up. It’s very simple. Anyone can participate. The link opens at 7pm Central time and will close Sunday at 7pm, so you have plenty of time to enter. Hopefully, you’ll be inspired to visit some of the other entries.

We are working on round four! It’s hard to believe. I did make a slight change. It will still go through the alphabet for the first prompt, but there are two other prompts that will change each week. As always, you can choose to do one or all. If you enjoy the week’s favorite, by all means continue to add that. If you didn’t participate this week but would like to next week the topics will be: Starts with F, self (portrait), and new. I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top. I am crazy busy with working on the farm right now, but I will make sure to visit all participants. Without further ado, here’s my interpretations for the week.

Starts with E:  Estarr starts with E.  In fact, the farm she came from names all their llamas E????.  I guess, if Ollie managed to breed her, I’ll have to keep with that tradition.


Drop(s): We finally had some much needed rain early on Thursday.  It wasn’t much–only about 1/10 of an inch, but I am grateful for every drop.

Happy: Sky is always a pretty happy guy, but when I let him play in the water, he’s really happy!


Obviously, I am not good at taking pictures with my cell phone while spraying the dog with water.  That’s way more multi-tasking than I can handle.

Here’s a video version.


Now it’s your turn!
