The Wind Shredded the Clouds Leaving Behind — Thursday, February 3, 2022

Although Delta proper got snow, we didn’t

By noon the wind was fierce and wicked and BABY IT IS COLD to work out in

The trees groaned and clattered, drop some limbs, and generally were miserable in the nasty gale.

By the time the sun glowingly sat…everything was clean and sparkly.

From my world to your heart,



From the Heart of the Fire, A Heart — Wednesday, February 3, 2021

We have been clearing the pasture of old and dead tree stumps and branches.

Where we saw a sundog in the early, early morning sky

Shared the farm with the masses and masses of Sandhill Cranes (YAY)

Quail, a large Jack Rabbit (of whom I didn’t get a photo), and mice.

But, one of the neat things the fire gave us

Was a Heart Rock.  So hot I had to lift it carefully, with the rake, and place it in a snowbank to cool down.

A heart from the fire!

How neat is that?!

A Taste of Spring—Sunday, February 3, 2019

It rained during the night…soft gentle rain, then heavy mud creating rain

But on my way out to take care of the two little fluffy hens

The gray light started to brighten, the clouds drifted into clumps instead of one big mass

The sun broke forth and I saw two Rainbows.  At different parts of the sky!

MAGIC and Wonder right here and now in FEBRUARY!!

Hearts of Sweetness—Wednesday, February 3, 2016

Our children in Craig, Colorado, will be coming for Valentine’s Day.  Really they coming because it is a small break for their school district, and since all of them are in the school district in some form, they all get a break.


(the pink are cinnamon, the blue is mint, the purple flavored raspberry, and the yellow is orange flavor.  So far everyone always pick pink and falls in love with it.  As a result they don’t try the other flavors/colors.  🙂  )

WE will get to see our grandchildren! (Oh, yes and their parents. tee hee)

It is also our youngest grandchild’s birthday that weekend.

So, with all this in mind, I decided I would make a huge selection of treats and goodies…perfect for snacking, or for a birthday celebration.


And, of course, Valentine’s Day!  🙂


Tally’s name is Tallin Rose. Her birthday falls on February 15th…don’t you just know for every birthday, for the rest of her life, she will be gifted with hearts and roses?  🙂

To top it all off her favorite color is pink…preferably SPARKLY pink!  She makes me smile.

Very much your friend,
