The most exciting thing that happened this weekend was the rain that finally found its way to our farm. At least the dust will settle for a couple of days if nothing else. It has been so very dry we will need a lot more rain to undo the damage to the pastures but something is better than nothing. It was ridiculous how excited Jason and I were over rain. We have a few more rain chances this week and we are doing our very best rain dances and hoping we get more.
It seems when it comes to rain we are always complaining that we have either too much or too little. It would be nice to feel like Goldilocks and get our rainfall amounts just right for a change. Maybe one day that will actually happen!
