My New Year’s Resolution —- Tuesday, December 31, 2019

Today is the last day of the whole decade—WOW!

And tomorrow starts another set of ten years.  Not just a New Year but the beginning of a whole new decade!

I’ve erased this post several times…it’s so hard to put into words what I am thinking and feeling.

But I decided to go ahead and give it a whirl:

I am going to practice daily until it becomes who I am

  • To speak words of kindness, to me.  I forget to do that sometimes.  I seem to be my worst critic.

My mother and her parents, my grandparents, were very kind and generous people.  Always helping those who needed a little help.

  • Help can be as simple as a kind word in the grocery store, unsticking a shopping cart for the person who can’t get them apart, or taking in a shopping cart someone just left in the parking slot, too uncaring to roll it to the cart corral.

  • If, and when, we go out I want to tip as generously as I can afford.  Oftentimes those in the service industry are over-looked as only a necessary commodity for people to have a good time.

Forgetting that service people have feelings, get tired, have to put up with ugly and rude customers.

A decent tip goes a long way to saying—You did a nice job.  Thank you.

  • I want to remember to smile.  To smile at everyone.  Sometimes a smile is as nice as a hug.
  • Sometimes hugs are even nicer.

  • I want to keep my blog and my FaceBook pages free from politics.

My Daddy always said the quickest way to lose friends is to discuss politics and religion. I believe him.

  • I will always respect your beliefs, and I will never demand, coerce, or push my politics or religion onto you.

I want my blog and my FaceBook page and myself to show to you that very invisible but strongly felt emotion of unconditional love and acceptance.

  • I also need to dust more, I will try.

But for me that is just trying—there are so many other things I want to do with my time.

The time that is going fast now in my elder years.

Still, I will try.  (to dust more 🙂  )

  • So for this coming year,  I want to judge less, to pay forward as much kindness as I possibly can, and enjoy each and every day as the seconds swing by with the pendulum of time.

From my heart to your heart,












In the Icy Freeze of Winter — Monday, December 30, 2019

A great big very cold wind came up the other day

Bringing to us later that night

A frozen world of extremely  cold temperatures

Although, not much snow.

And the nasty biting wind

there is a  promise of a wee melt soon

Typical of winter in our part of the world.

In the Very Brief Daylight This Time of Year —- Sunday, December 29, 2019

The days are gradually growing longer, although one really can’t tell as of yet.

With what glittering daylight we had over Christmas,

Was filled with clear and unclouded joy-sprinkled

moments in the brittle air.

Each second was spent with bursting joy

Adorning the day and into the night

A Special Christmas Cheer.

Thankfully, for a small spell, the farm was under an enchantment; full of incredible bits of time with family.

Contentment Abounded here.

From my world to your heart,



Circled Around Our Hearts —- Thursday, December 26, 2019

For our anniversary we gathered ourselves up, did all small chores we have this time of year

Then drove to Ouray, Colorado, whereby we spent the afternoon soaking in the hot springs

Then home again, home again to enjoy the heat of the woodstove, a log snapping as it fired, the flames dancing, the air drowsy with warm relaxation.

A perfect Celebratory day.

May Your Christmas Day be Joyful and Bright —-Wednesday, December 25, 2019


I pray that this day reflects all the love the whole Universe offers and that you are filled with peace and wonder.

O! The JOY! O! The Excitement—Monday, December 23, 2019

The Cows have come. I Spread my arms and swirl around in excitement!

I love watching them munching along on the farm

The air filled with their calls and the stalks of corn, weeds, and standing alfalfa dancing slowing, rippling with the movement of their lips and hooves

They will eat all night if a storm is coming in.  Or they head to the Upper End; drink from the little creek and sleep.

Come first light, I can see them trundling along looking for that perfect spot in the golden corral of our farm to start their morning breakfast.!

Yay!  The Cows have come!

Mindy and Boomer Have an Adventure —-Mom Says We Have To Stop, She Gets to Blog Today, Friday, December 20, 2019

Mom says our adventure has to stop.  Just for this week.

She says its not a bad stop it is just because of TOMORROW

You see, it was a long, long, time ago, (December 21—that is tomorrow, but we take off  blogging on Saturday,  so we tell the story today)

In a land far away–(Eckert, Colorado)

On a dark and very cold, snowy night (7 p.m.)

Mom and Dad began

This wondrous journey

Of 52 years!

From our world your hearts,

Boomer, Mindy, Terry, and Linda




Always, No Matter What, There is a Force Which Tries to Restore Balance—Thursday, December 19, 2019

(I am going to use some old photos from my past blogs for this post today. I hope you enjoy)

(Mindy loves to run)

Sometimes the news makes me feel as if the world is titling

(Boomer always seems to be smiling)

Filling the places of everyday with tears of pain and sorrow


What a sad thing everyday news reports…everyone (all peoples) are small and lonely and caught in a capsule of their own thoughts, of anger, and meanness and ugly revenge.

So — so I try very hard NOT to listen to the news.  It breaks my heart, the ugliness.

There really isn’t anything I can do —everyone has their own thoughts and refuse to listen to explanations outside of their personal reality.

Once we become trapped in sorrow, or anger, or revenge — it takes much inner work to cast the nastiness aside and move in a good place of being.

(Boomer loves the sun) 

I’ve been told I live in a rose-colored world of isolation, my head is always in the sand,

Possibly so. It works for me.

I do pray to my God, and I ask that all the Gods of this world and the Universe please save our planet,

Please, bring forth forces of good into the world.

Right the wrongs, bring peace, save mankind, sometimes we humans, just don’t understand the terrible harms we do, because we become locked in our views.

And as I pray, my heart is filled with hope.

May you all be safe and warm and taken care of wonderful friends of my blog.

From my heart to your heart,



I Believe in God—Wednesday, December 18, 2019

We still have a few drifts of the last snow we had…sitting all frozen and windswept waiting for either a warm day to melt away, or to gain more snow to smooth out the wrinkles left by the wind

The shadows seem to dance and rustle in the icy air

Our lives are such tiny little seconds in the eternal cycle of life.

I believe in God, belief in the stars, in the infinity of the World, the beauty of the earth, everything we have in each day by day our lives.

Yes, I believe in God and the gift of being alive.
