Yesterday evening, Terry, Evan and I finished our load of firewood for the day and headed home. We actually got done in an hour. We are doing one load a night. The pile is shrinking—thankfully. And growing larger at each of our houses. Maybe by Saturday we will be done. We sure hope so, all of us are getting tired of the cutting and hauling of firewood. 🙂
Storms rolled in again in the late afternoon, cooling the skies and bringing rain. Still the pintos are doing okay. By tomorrow the rain is supposed to gone for several days. We will begin again in earnest after the storms get out of here. (I would like to share with you a little secret….although it doesn’t look so: Harvest is grueling work–and dusty—and worrisome. Most of all worrisome)

Terry and I had to finish up some stuff back out on the mud ditch last night, after the firewood.
The sky was stunning.
Darkness rolled up from the canyons, trying to fill the air with shadows. But the light of the setting sun had other ideas.
The deepening shadows turned red and glowed in an amazing splendor behind and through the racing clouds over head.
Terry headed back in, with his load, but I stayed out there. Letting the light flood around me. The silence fell in waves; the minutes with Boomer, myself, the light, and the coming night passed by uncounted for. It was a stunning
