The End of Eid
The kids convinced me that we should bring some of their cousins home with us so they could run around on the farm. I think during the entire month of Ramadan I walked around on the farm just once! It was too hot. But today the weather was nice, especially in the evening so we had a look around.
The weeds have mostly dried up and turned brown from the summer sun. And the leaves on the trees are just beginning to turn. Within a month or so they will be falling off the trees. Could I smell the scent of autumn? Maybe faintly... the weather is cooling off slightly.
About four months ago we planted a mulberry tree. When it was planted it was just a stick - no branches or leaves to be seen. It's doing really well!
Sorghum... well watered it looks so nice and green.
The sunset was amazing. The kids had a nice time in the fresh air.
Later the weather changed... it poured rain and then the electricity went out. There was strong winds, lightening and thunder. The kids jumped up and down like a bunch of baboons... the dogs got nervous and started jumping up and down too. Kids screaming, dogs barking... sigh.... no chance to enjoy the weather.
It's time to pack the cousins into the car and take them home. Another Eid is over.
