Sunshine and a Stiff Breeze—-Thursday, January 15, 2015

Yesterday was a very nice day…I am so blessed to have so many wonderful friends from here and around the whole globe.  I thank each one of you very much!

Another gift today —  last evening, as the sun was starting to set, the clouds broke up; allowing clear skies to appear! Sunshine always gives a huge lift to the spirit!


From ElaineElaine from Black Forest, Colorado, sent me this beautiful frozen photo of the frost and fog and hoar frost not far from her home.  It looks like the photo is in black and white, but in reality it was just that cold.

Linda's-DawnThen Linda, from very large ranch in Alberta, Canada, sent me this stunning sunrise.

The world is just a beautiful place!

Your friend,

Bull Snake

Linda Pierson from Just Another Day on the Prairie in Alberta, Canada, said I could use this photo of a bull snake sunning itself.  A friend of her’s took the photo.  It is such an unusual place to find bull snake I just had to share it will all of You!

On barbed wire no less!

Hope you enjoy!

Sunday, March 24, 2013….March Leaves Like a Lion

We were up at 2:30 on Saturday morning to take Evan to the airport to go see Joylene in Canada.


Everything went really good for him until he got to Denver …then he was grounded until 8 that evening…

Snow storm…big one…that is already on it’s way to the rest of the country.


Terry’s sister and her husband live in Greeley and sent us over a photo of just what the snow looked like there…18″.

It didn’t snow here, but we did have the wind…frigid, face freezing wind and lots of it– 40 m.p.h. gusts with 25 m.p.h. sustained winds.

Today we are frozen…more like January and February instead of late March.  I guess March is leaving like a lion…not long now until April.


I’m looking forward to April.  This is a little robin, poor things they really look cold this morning.

Our wood is down to four logs so this afternoon we are heading to the upper end to cut wood from the downed trees, this time last year we were not worrying about heat except in the early morning.

Each year is decidedly different one never really knows what will happen.

I saw a headline on the internet saying this the winter that doesn’t leave.
