The Sky—Thursday, March 9, 2015

“The sky is the daily bread of the eyes”: —Ralph Waldo Emerson

Good-NightOh, how right Mr. Emerson is!

RoseToday Terry and I are driving to Rifle, Colorado, to pick up our oldest granddaughter. Linkin is missing us and asked if she could come stay several days …Thursday through Sunday.

StunningThere was NO hesitation on our part! YES!  We will be there.  Terry was a little concerned with Linkin missing school, but she is top of her class—a couple of days spent with her grandparents won’t hurt her school work.  I will just have to make sure she gets her homework done, if she has any.

We will meet her parents back in Rifle on Sunday sending a ‘refreshed’ little girl home until spring break at the end of this month.

The neighbor’s (across the way from the other house) cat has had kitten’s over in the barn at our other house.  The three little kitten’s will be four weeks old when we pick up Linky…they are purr-fect for a cat-loving 10 year old little girl to spend lots of quality time petting.  The Momma cat is very loving and a nice sharer of her kittens; I thinking the Momma will enjoy lots of loving also.

With great joy,

Your friend,

  1. Mr Emerson had lots of things right. My personal favourite is:
    “Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.” (Ralph Waldo Emerson)


  2. This made me smile on so many levels. First the quote. It was new to me, but so perfect! I love the sky…love your wonderful photos of it too. Love that Linkin is coming to visit and have fun and play with kittens and all. We were never hesitant to take the kids out of school for such things. If we wanted to go to a museum, or a farm show, or just on a business trip where they could experience something new and different…we always took them. School is important and they were fortunate to get an exceptional education at ours, but life experience is important too. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!


  3. My aunt and uncle had only one grandchild when they retired. They often took him out of school for a week or two when they traveled. The school was very surly about this, but it turned out to be the most wonderful thing (he’s 19 now, so I can see the results). He was fond of trains. They went to countless train museums and rode on several trains. On one, when the conductor found out how much the boy really knew about trains, he took him to the engine car for some serious lessons. The only problem was, after being around adults so much, the grandchild didn’t have much patience with silliness in the classroom, either from kids with behavior problems or from curriculum that was simplistic. People who are education professionals often think kids have to be in classrooms every day or they’ll be failures, probably because that’s all they know. There is so much more to life, as we all find out, when our academic days are behind us. Have a wonderful time.
