Is it August??

It's been a really weird August here, weather-wise.  
It's the first August in a loooong time that we have not seen 100 degree temps.
We are delighted to finally have some watermelons.  
Much, much rain has been good for the orchard.
It doesn't look like much now, but there are over 20 trees out there, 
and the watermelon patch on the left.
Emmi saved a hummingbird this week.  She thought it could not fly because it's wings were wet--I don't know if that's true.  She dried him and took him to the hummingbird feeder, after several gulps he flew away.
This was the view from my float today, cows and land as far as the eye can see.  SO blessed!
One day last week, between rains, we swam. The water was so cold the kids begged to get out
after 30 minutes, .....not the normal August.
The pigs had to be moved this week, one was caught steeling milk from Josie.  
Josie has been so "dragged down" since calving in July.  
The piggy stealing milk did not help her any, I'm sure.
Now these pigs are in a section of the back pasture, with their new electric fence.
DH spent an entire day cleaning out the parking shed.
I'm so glad to have it clean and organized.
Avery is learning to play the guitar, and doing very well.
We are enjoying temps in the 80's--however strange it may be.  
There are many, many butterflies on the Lantana.
Days are getting shorter already.  It's getting dark before we finish milking now.
   
Hard to believe, not only is it August, but August is almost gone!
