Our Farm is a Peaceful Place—-Tuesday, September 13, 2016


But is also is a very busy place.  I am late posting today because of so many calls upon my time.


We stir early, early.  The day is not even waking, when we stir to life and the farm is whirred into action like a freshly wound clock; the cogs and wheels shifting and spinning until the night rises to meet the day.  Then it starts all over again just like magic the next day.

getting-readyWe are working on the mud ditch.  What a huge messy job.  Terry got the a few of the dams out, I helped with the gated pipe—but we still have to pick up all the syphon tubes.  Maybe later this afternoon.

the-day-of-rainWe had several little rain storms move through our place last night.  We were out cutting firewood—still several more days to go—when the downpours occurred.  Not good for the pulled beans, but it is what it is.  We just move on forward.

hay-for-romeoThe little swallows have gone.  My heart feels sad…it means summer is officially over.  I love their pursuit of insects diving and swooping on slender outspread wings. morning-glory-hiddenStill the days are warm, but

small-sundogI saw a sundog while we were cutting firewood… a cool down is on its way.  The oldtimers say in three days.

Your friend on a western Colorado Farm,

  1. I love this post. There is so much poetry in it. I never get tired of realizing, again and again, how deeply your heart is into your work and your life. You look glamorous on your 4-wheeler. A bit like the great actress Helen Mirren. Has anyone ever told you that? On another note entirely, what does this mean for the beans…can they be salvaged?

    • So far the beans are okay. The rain is brief and intense but not prolonged. If the rain beats them into the ground then Terry will have to re-blade them to pick them up out the dirt so the combine can lift them into the hopper.
      Helen Mirren…wow! I adore Helen Mirren…wouldn’t that be something, me a little bit like her. Thank you so much.
      I feel like my life IS made up of poetry everything speaks loudly to me on this small patch of land.


  2. I, like you, love the peacefulness of the farm. One can be crazy busy but one long look out the window and your heart and mind can enjoy a calmness when looking out over the land. Love your pictures of everything you and Terry do!
