Remember back in March when I posted the fact that I love the Wind? Well, I still do. BUT….I am getting a tad tired of it.
We are having lots of wind! Usually it starts slowing down in the late afternoon; stopping by nightfall. But not last night…the wind blew all day yesterday…not the fun, playful kite flying winds, or the gentle soap bubble blowing breezes, but the kind that slams doors shut in the house, lifts curtains to flap and snap in the bedrooms. We are to have (yet) another day of such nonsense and then another day with 40 m.p.h. gusts lifting anything that is not nailed down up into the air and then dropped somewhere not close by.
Still the wind didn’t stop the moon light from bursting forth from behind the leaves…shining brilliant silver light upon the night-scaped land. It ruffled the dogs’ fur…making them look like little rag-a-muffins as we walked along.
During the day the wind caused the clouds to shift and scuttle across the brilliant shining sky.
So far we are not too cold, although a nasty cold front is due in here on Wednesday. If it doesn’t stall we will start to warm back up on Thursday. One day of potential snow in the mountains.
A baby water snake slithered out on the gravel to warm up…soaking the heat from the soil into his/her scales. This little snake didn’t stay long, the wind ruffled even it’s little scales.
Then suddenly, I was lifted up into the air, flung wildly into the heavens!
The view was stunning!
The wind shifted the clouds here and there…causing sun-rays to stream through the gathering mass of condensed water vapor floating in our atmosphere, lighting up the Uncompahgre Plateau and the canyon just below our mesa…the Roubidoux.!
It was so beautiful I am sure the stars even sung!
There is much joy in every day, isn’t there.
