The Hue of Ordinary Days —- Tuesday, January 11, 2022

We celebrated our daughter, Kimberly’s 48th birthday

We had our long, long lane to the house graveled

I worked on sorting the woodpile

Larry took the girls for a walk

Each day, a wee bit of magic filling and shimmering in the air,

From my world to your heart,



The Golden Sunlight Casing Light into all Cracks and Crevices — Monday, January 11, 2021

Love works magic. It is the final purpose of the world story, The Amen of the universe. — Novalis

The sun’s light rays shining gold upon the house, the barns, the fields

and cows.

Tenderly lighting the world

With a subtle magic

A type of healing

Which connects to the earth

Sewing it’s beauty into our souls.

From my world to your heart,


Our Part of the World —- Thursday, January 11, 2018

January 10th we had rain!

Moisture falling from a pale gray sky

Beautiful and wet!

We took the day off and went to Grand Junction, where we learned they also were experiencing this wonderful phenomenon…Moisture!

For a Spell—a Tiny, but Delightful Spell—-Wednesday, January 11, 2016

jet-blueThe clouds blew away and the sun came out!  Our temperatures rose to 50*,  and the animals and I went outside and danced in the sun’s rays!

ice-and-shadows-012It was a joy!

ice-and-shadows-011The sun threw shadows and light on what drifts remained.

ice-and-shadows-014Then all too soon that beautiful golden orb slipped behind the Uncompahgre Plateau

ice-and-shadows-015And was gone!

But for a brief moment in time we were flooded with light!

From my world to your heart!


As the Dawn Cracked—Monday, January 11, 2016

As the sun started peaking over the Gunnison Mountain range…Terry and I were

Elevator-1Taking a load in —- what a nice way to start the week.

Elevator-2It’s still a little too high, but they said bring it in and go get another one.

Load1So we are!

(Wouldn’t it be nice if we could just bring in all three fields?  Work all this week and be done?  — Oh, well, we are NOT complaining, just very grateful.)

Your friends in a sorta, kinda, maybe, corn harvest.


FOG — Sunday, January 11, 2015

F2Fog rolled in just before the snow hit! (It’s snowing here now)

Nothing is a beautiful as fog.

f1.jpgOf course we don’t have fog like the other parts of the world, we have fog in a very random way.  Fog is Not a staple here, nor is it a common occurrence.  It isn’t rare, but it is unusual.

F3 When we do get fog it’s caused from the large variety of canals and rivers, which are in our area; the water becomes warmer than the air then we get fog!!!  I adore the fog!

Of course it never lasts long. So having it descend on the farm is really nice!

Your friend,
