We woke up to a wonderful, drizzle this morning. 48 degrees on my front porch. We gleefully threw open windows and breathed in the fresh, moist air. If there was any doubt after yesterday’s frost, there is none now~ summer is over. We might have more warm days this month, but the general weather movement is toward autumn. I don’t think I’ve ever been happier to welcome fall than this year.


The fires that raged in Glacier National Park and surrounding areas should be sufficiently smothered after these next several days of rain.

Smoke noted two days ago from our closest fire just miles to the west of us

Phil looking at something “very interesting”~ I think it’s a bird.


He is so funny! He is constantly pushing this poor old broken bucket around the pasture.


I think since Maggie pushes him around a bit, he, in turn, pushes the bucket around. Bullying runs down hill.



As you can see, the pigs are completely happy with the rain. So happy that they don’t even lift their heads from the breakfast table.

DSC00435 (2).JPGWe should have a little break in the moisture this afternoon. I’ll venture out the the garden to see what we can see. Sometimes even after a frost, a nice soaking rain rejuvenates stressed plants. So we will have a nice walk-about in the garden later. DSC00469Yes~ you girls can come too but you have to promise that there will be no digging!



They look sceptical.


Tech note: It looks as though the post from 09.17.17 was just published this morning though I actually published it yesterday. I have no idea why this happened but I’m just going with it. WordPress is so weird. 


Today’s count: It’s too early yet. This dark morning has fooled the girls and they are still asleep :]

What’s for supper: Chick Fil A type fried chicken (one of the boys’ favorite!). Green beans, Caesar salad.
