A Great Wind Passing Through—Tuesday, December 5, 2017

Sunday well into early, early Monday morning a great wind came through…bringing with it the cold front we are now experiencing…normal December temperatures. 🙂

The destructive wind picked up all the loose corn leaves (and any other thing) moving them from fields and slamming them onto fences, trees and anything else standing secure and tall.

The whole air rippled in the force of the wind, much like a wee tornado…full of dirt, bits of this and that; causing excitement when it landed in your eyes, ears or mouth.

The gale force winds (gusts up to 40-50 m.p.h.) pushed the bruised and glowering clouds away from us…taking any moisture there might have been to some place else…not here.

 

Now today, with shivery weather, blue skies and calm air…we welcome in traditional winter cold! It was 10* at our house this morning. (-12.22 celsius)

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

Watching with Glittering Eyes—-Monday, December 5, 2016

“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you.  Because the greatest secret are always hidden in the most unlikely places.  Those who don’t believe in magic  will never find it.”–Roald Dahl

The light, of late, has been just stunning.

The sky a pearlized blue like the color of an oyster’s pearl.

But the light…of that fast setting sun!  That marvelous light that spreads across the land!

The clouds so beautiful I feel like I would love to reach up and touch them

First there is the golden shower of sunshine, then the spread of the pink and lavender and apricot!

For a very short time…just a moment really, I live in the center of color.

The center of the setting sun…warm, and comforted, with that burst of true joy, which always comes just before the sun is gone for another day.

From my world to your heart,

Linda
