Busy! Oh! My! Have We Ever Been Busy—Sunday, April 16, 2023

It’s that time of year when we haul dirt from the settling pond

One truckload at a time.

The wind was terrible in the afternoons

With little showers the first day

After 16 loads Terry said–“Done for now, we will get the rest later in the year.”

It wouldn’t have been too bad but for the wind.


Done for now.


We go home to hot baths, a light supper, and to stop for a spell.

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,


(I don’t realize how old I am until I see my hands! Then I know 🙂 )

  1. Looks like good dirt. Wish I could move it down here for the gardens. It’s good to be busy. I’ve been sitting around waiting for my left thumb to heal from surgery. Had severe arthritis and was getting so I didn’t have a grip. Amazing how much you use your thumb. Before that, I couldn’t do anything because it was too cold and had way too much snow. It’s melting and Lightner Creek is running full bore.
