Sun-Warmed Days—June 29, 2017

The sun-shimmers across the farm, bringing heat,

wind (hot and dusty), and all sorts of things, which only sun-warmed days can bring.

Shannon’s little nephews from Jason’s side came to spend the weekend.

So I dug out the bikes, aired up the tires and off they went—to drive through ever ounce mud they could find on the place. πŸ™‚

We are fighting weeds of the most magnificent growth…

We hauled the two culverts up to the Upper End,

where they will rest until the water is turned off. Β Then it will be time to get the backhoe up here and replace a couple of worn out culverts, which are leaking water. Β (There is always something to do in the repair department, it seems.)

Today my brother and his wife, plus two of their friends arrive for a summer visit.

I’m thinking I’ll make stove-top green enchilada’s for supper. Β It’s important to keep the kitchen (and the cook) cool.

Still all in all…although the day heats up to bleach the world, the evening sun touching the world’s rim colors the sky in amazing reds and oranges.


And….Oh, yes…I can’t forget

Another flat tire! There have been so many now we have to laugh about it!

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

  1. Have a good visit! I make an enchilada. I put a small can of green chilis on top of a cheap steak and cook either in the oven in a roaster or a slow cooker in the summer. Shred the meat. Put it in a soft shell and top with cheese and Green enchilada sauce. One of our favorite meals. πŸ™‚
