In the Short Day’s Light —-Thursday, November 28, 2019

Our days, of each and every year;

Proceed as an amazing gift

The gratefulness of continued good health

The joy of truly getting to live our own personal dream

With the untold blessing of having very few wants

And the skills and ability to fix or create, if needed.

I have so much to be grateful for

My heart runs over!

Happy Thanksgiving to each and every one of you, my friends!

You are very much a blessing within my every day!

And, if you do not celebrate, this United States Holiday…I wish for you a wonder-filled day in your daily life!

From My Heart to Your World,


Put Aside Those Little Creeping Negative Thoughts—-Thursday, November 22, 2018

(The next few photos are pictures of the San Juan Mountain Range seen from our farm)

Today is the United States of America’s day of Thanksgiving

The day we give Thanks for all that is real and leave behind those feelings of ungratefulness

The reality is we should be grateful every day, every single second of every day

For, after all, not everyone gets to live to be old


(This is a photo of the Adobe Foothills at the bottom of Grand Mesa and at the end of our lane)

I feel we owe it to those souls who have passed beyond into the veil, to open our souls to Thankfulness

We need to make a strong effort to put aside jealousies and ugly slanders

And create memories of golden precious thoughts, which open us up to the beauty all around us

Not just the beauty of nature but the beauty of those other souls who come into the atmosphere we share

Either on a physical place or this wonderous cyber world.

For no matter what each person, near or far, shares your journey with you.

(This is a photo of the Paonia Mountains east of us)

So with those words, I fling my arms wide and wish to say to each one of you, from the bottom of my heart [as my Momma used to say]

From my HEART to your world,





Happy Thanksgiving Everyone—Thursday, November 26, 2014

3Wishing each and everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.  For those who do not celebrate the American Thanksgiving, I wish for you a day of Thanks for the blessings and gift of another day, another year, another joy.

Your Friend on a Western Colorado Farm,



Happy Thanksgiving One and All

Every year I get out my special Thanksgiving decorations.  They are a homely group of items:

A tablecloth and pilgrim candles of my mothers

A set of pilgrims our daughter Kimberly made in the Second Grade

A Mayflower Evan made in the Second Grade

A turkey our oldest daughter Shannon made in the Third Grade

A pinecone turkey (with googlie eyes) our youngest daughter Misty made in the First Grade

I’ve added some toy ‘dancing’ turkeys that the grandchildren love

and a flower bouquet just for me.

This is my Thanksgiving…a blessing of memories from those I love.

I also want to wish each and every one of you a Special Thanksgiving day.   I will not be posting again until Monday as we are putting up the frame for the barn and we will be a wee bit busy. 

Another rather nice thing is I DO NOT HAVE TO COOK!  

YEAH!  Hip Hip Hooray! 

Oh!  Sorry! Shouldn’t have expressed such elated joy.


I don’t have to cook….YEAH!

Happy Thanksgiving, Dear Friends!


Have a Happy Thanksgiving

I would like to wish each and every one of you a Happy Thanksgiving!  I would like you to know that I am Thankful for all the new friends I have made through blogging! I have really enjoyed getting to know all of my new blogging friends, their lives, and where they live.  I look forward to our stock market settling down, prosperity returning to our great land, and for each one of you to have great joy in each of your lives.


Looking toward 25 Mesa (the Uncompahgre Plateau) from our back door

Suddenly there appeared in the air a chariot of fire, with horses of fire, which, parting the two asunder carried up Elijah in a whirlwind to heaven. 2 Kings 2:1-11

After having a very long summer, and an even longer fall, I have reached a point whereby I need a break.  Starting Wednesday, November 26th

Terry and I are taking some time to do some ‘stuff’ that doesn’t include me going to work. I will return to regular routine December 1st
