We are spending the holiday weekend in Brenham with family. It’s nice to spend some quality time after being away for awhile. For us, quality time means swimming, walking, exploring, a lot of cooking and eating, and this time, working on the land. Last Thursday and Friday, Brenham got about 24″ of rain and there was a lot of damage done to the land. There was a lot of anxiety and worry about work already done around here and what this meant for the future.
We came up with some solutions, including a temporary fence so the neighboring cows wouldn’t invade the garden and house. We all helped – even the kids – and got it done in this lovely Texas heat. It is good to remind ourselves that it could have been worse. We were unharmed. The house was unharmed, and after a few clean-up days, the property will be back to a new normal.
