A Little Bit of Winter— Wednesday, January 25, 2023

Winter all around us

Still—the sky drooping deep into the mountains

It looks like a good water year—so far.  (Holding breath)

A Week Ago Last Tuesday —Tuesday, January, 24, 2023

The rains started…then the air became very cold and full of malice, after which

Gradually the snow drifted languidly down, leaving clean white everything.

Until the firebox needed me.

Then there were tracks of fur kids and myself in the snow.

Your friend still caught in the shrewd grip of January.


A Rainbow Gift from the Ocean (and Our Kids :) ), Monday, January 23, 2023

Cliff and Kimberly left an ocean cruise where they came across

A marvelous rainbow

They sent it to me for my birthday!

How very blessed I am!

Thank you, Kids, (with the Myers)  what a great present this was!

From my world to your heart,

The Adventures of Boo Berry Betty and TLC Cai-Cai on Friday—-Mom Did This to Me, Friday, January 20, 2023

Because we sometimes have weather like this

Mom thought I had better have a coat

A COAT!!!?

What does a girl do with a COAT?

I showed Mom.

I just stood there and would NOT move.

Finally, Mom took it off so I could walk around.

(She isn’t going to trap ME in a coat!)

A Sweet Kiss Goodnight—Sleep Tight—All is Well, Thursday, January 19, 2023

45 minutes to Sunset—when the world has an amazing pink lucent glow—then fades into soft shades of gray—on into the dark of night.

(I love this time of day!  Just LOVE it!)

It’s like that goodnight kiss your Momma and Daddy gave you way back when you were a toddler.

A perfect ending to the day, with sweet dreams for the night.

From my world to your heart!



I Know It is a Tad Strange—Wednesday, January 18, 2023

One thing I truly enjoy doing is

Sorting, stacking and creating with firewood.

It is a satisfying feeling that not even a rough wind can knock over my stacks (and I have many stacks)

They are all composed according to size. Perfect for whatever I think I need in the firebox!

Such a bright, scintillating, [sparkling and shiny] feeling this gives me!


I know. It’s unusual, but it does make me feel good.

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,


The Sounds of Chain Saws in the Air — Monday, January 16, 2023

Bruce came out early one morning to help us with that massive, huge pile of logs.

They worked all through the day, getting that pile down, down, down.

What a gift!

Thank you, Bruce!
