Fooled—Sunday, May 10, 2015

For a short time yesterday, I thought the rains and the clouds had gone away…to come back another day.

Raining-Again-2So I started to hang my clothes on the  clothes line to dry….FOOLED!  The rains came down and down and down—again!

!This cold miserable weather even has the summer birds wondering why in the world did they come back so quickly–it feels like winter.

We even have the wood stove going again it’s so cold.

2Although, I must admit, everything is greening up and looking lovely (if we don’t get a freeze) and the weeds are in heaven!

Today the renters move in!  I am doing a Happy, Happy Dance. A joyous dance! YAY!

Your friend in a wet and soggy world,

Friday and Saturday’s Update—Sunday, February 8, 2015

Tile-House-RoofFriday was so nice Terry and I decided to get the roof  on the Tile House…this is a little house that was once used to bottle milk and then became Grandma Brown’s wash house for laundry.  Over the years I’ve used it for many things, now it stores all my canning, food dryers, and the freezer plus  just plain “stuff” that I really need to go through and sell or give away.

We are so warm here that Terry and I worked in our shirtsleeves, in fact it was down right hot for a little while. Very unusual for this time of year, but I’ll take it.  I guess, I have to take it there is nothing else to do. 🙂

By Friday night we were done! DONE! Finished on the tile house roof…do a happy dance!  And very tired!

CowsAlso, on Friday half of the cows arrived; I counted 60 soon to be Momma Cows!

cows-1.jpgThey have made the rounds of the whole place checking everything out—here, there and everywhere.  Not stopping, but for a mouth full of this or that.  Today they have sorta settled down, picking one field, over by the barns, or by the other house and staying for several hours, then moving on to another interesting spot.

Boomer and I have taken a few walks out to see how they are doing…I just love being around cows.

Grand-Mesa-new-sizeToday promises to be just as warm as Friday and Saturday, the sunsets are still stunning in their summer-like colors (you are looking North toward Grand Mesa) , this is the day we take off, which is always nice.

I hope your Sunday is a good one, where ever you are!  Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit.
