Fall is in the Air

As mid August rapidly approaches, there are some clear changes in the air. The mornings are getting cooler, and the days are getting shorter. The thunder and lighting storms are becoming more frequent, and (hopefully) the visits from the ever buzzing horse flies will start bleeding off soon. Feverfew and wild daisies have taken over the flower garden, while the snow peas finally have quarter-inch long pea-pods emerging from their pretty little blossoms. Most of our bean plants survived the freak 30 degree morning last month, and are growing beautifully, but I have my doubts about getting any mature beans before the morning temperatures drop below freezing again, and this time stay… what a lovely summer it has been–plenty of rain, with no threat of wild fires around our neck of the woods. The kids are thriving and looking forward to meeting their new little sibling, which is due now any day. Besides having ample time to spend with their Uncle Laird, they are excited about the up-coming visit with their Auntie Sonia and Nana Raven, who’ll be here soon for an early fall visit. Jason has been putting in an extra long week of work in Helena, in hopes that the babe will come some time next week, which he wont schedule any jobs for. Soon after the little one’s arrival, he will start fall training on the group of sleddogs he has been helping care for all summer…and that means some good blogs on training will be showing up soon!

All in all, a good time of year here at the Barron household. Thanks for stopping by folks…

    We’re still hot and windy here in Belgrade, have irrigation going like crazy. See that our neighbor up on the hill has started grain harvest tonight. Fierce lightning last night, can’t believe something didn’t burn.
