2012 in review December 31, 2012

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

19,000 people fit into the new Barclays Center to see Jay-Z perform. This blog was viewed about 83,000 times in 2012. If it were a concert at the Barclays Center, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

What a wonderful couple of days….full of food, family and gifts.  My brother and his wife stopped by on their way to sunny California, their car was full of gifts for us.  A complete surprise and much enjoyed.


The snow we had is melting down here, but in the mountains it looks like it is staying.  As I write this we are in another winter storm watch…Terry and I agree we will take it if it means snow in the mountains.


Our soon-to-be  daughter-in-law arrived last night from Grand Cash, Alberta, Canada for a week of visits.  She said we are much warmer here. 🙂


Hope your holidays were wonderful.  I’m off to visit your blogs now and then back to   packing up all my Christmas decorations.

We are heading toward 2013…  Boy, does time fly!

I’m getting a tad tired of all the clouds

Snow-MaybeAlthough, there is snow on the mountains and around us.

Dreary is well….dreary!

But today…this morning…I CAN SEE SOME SUN…so I’m heading out for a walk.

Happy Monday!!!

Goose Paradise

The-LakeThe Geese are enjoying Confluence Lake, located in Confluence Park.

Of course you don’t want to walk on the grass, but they do seem to stay off the paths!

Dog walks are a blast for both dogs and goose alike.

Not so much humans!

I guess I’m going to have to take the day off — I a bit tired for some reason or other and can’t seem to get myself together.

I will be back Monday, bright and early, that is for certain and for sure.

I hope you have a really nice Sunday!


Corn Harvest 2012

Busy, busy!  I hope to get myself organized soon…but until then just know

Day one is over.

The wait at the silo’s is intense…four hours yesterday, then unload, back into the field until dark.

Take a load down BEFORE six in the morning…get in line, wait…

You get the picture.

Hope to get around to visit everyone soon!

We are having 20% chance of rain right now…which is rather nice actually.  It isn’t raining here (right here on the farm), but it is raining around us in the mountains.  We get to watch the clouds play across the sky then settle down on one of the hillsides and let down a little thirst quenching shower.  What it brings to us is the cooling of the day…we’ve been hitting anywhere from 90* to 100*.

I have been looking for rainbows, but there aren’t many yet.  I keep looking; they are bound to appear since there IS rain around.
