Not only is August whizzing by me a breakneck speed, but when I step outside, I’d swear it was October!!
We have rain!!! We have had cold fronts!! The grass is green! In August? Yep. And I’ve been around long enough (which is depressing) that I remember an August when Big Boss’s mom, our boys and I spent the weeks putting out pellets for cattle who had NOTHING to eat. I mean nothing. No grass because there had been no rain. And there wasn’t room for them at the feedlot. So she drove while the boys and I dumped pellets from the back of the pickup.
But not this August. Praise the Lord!!
All of this rain has delayed silage harvest a bit and has also meant more time on the mower. Thank goodness for willing yard workers aka grandsons!
“Meemaw, do you have something I could do?” SERIOUSLY?! You have got to be kidding!!!!!!! You are most certainly an alien who could not possibly be the offspring of dearest Son #2. No way.
And so, the mowing gets done quickly, efficiently and most importantly, WILLINGLY!!!
Meanwhile, back in the kitchen…
I’m frantically working on cakes. Our youngest granddaughter will be 1 next weekend and a mermaid cake has been chosen.
That means research…
Next up are yellow roses.
Then cookies for starving silage workers and hungry grands.
And supplies for harvest.
What am I doing HERE for Pete’s Sake?!!! Later gater.
