Got .2 from a shower yesterday afternoon. Will start trimming dead oak trees near the garage /barn. I lose at least two mature oaks every year.
My neighbor lost 2 oaks trees a few years ago. He managed to save one. I love mature oak trees ! I hate to hear that you are losing a few every year.

Do you know why?

Probably post oaks... they're short lived by nature. As the mature, they 'hollow out' & literally rot from the inside. And then there is the oak wilt disease too.

Made bread.

Refilled the hummingbird feeders.

Fed the cattle.

Cut the grass ahead of the incoming tropical storm.

Watered the porch pots & hanging baskets (which I took down).

Making 'Pistacchio e Salsicca Pizza' for supper tonight using the fermented dough I made 2 days ago. Also picked some basil out of the garden for it.
