As the Evening Came On —- Monday, January 17, 2022

I had gone out to check the electric fence in front of the house (it was snapping and shorting out)

When I thought to myself; even in the growing dark, the light is lovely.

The Time has Come — Sunday, January 17, 2020

The cowboys arrived early

The cows were ready…no real having to round them up or chase them down

They know, they understand, head down the road, to the loading chutes, heading to new pastures

Less than thirty minutes…our girls were gone.

Come Back next year, I yelled!  We will be waiting for you!

Soft Echoes in the Air —-Thursday, January 17, 2019

, A cloud sat down on the farm today…it was lovely and beautiful

Making sounds soft and close; the feeling tranquil

And just so you know…there is always one!

Yep..always.  And she can jump an electric fence just like it isn’t even there, not even touching the toe of her hoof on the wire.

I Will Not Ask for More —- Wednesday, January 17, 2018

Yesterday was a odd sort of day for me —

Although, I had a very busy day.

Now today I am tired.

Tired enough I can’t seem to get myself moving.

So please forgive me the lateness of this post.  And my slowly dragging along.

The day has warmed up from a very chilly start and I must get busy.

The sun is shining, there isn’t a cloud in the sky, and the air is still.

It short it is beautiful

I really can’t ask for more.

Tomorrow I promise to be back to myself,

walk-in-the-farmI’m looking forward to walking with  Boomer  in the SUNSHINE!  Where we throw shadows on the ground and our feet don’t collect mud!

But not yet!  Not today.  Not for awhile.  Another big storm system is heading in here in a day or so, until then just know that I am

A Week of Gifts—Sunday, January 17, 2016

Sun-1Driving home from the elevator the other morning I noticed the clouds were starting to thin…

Sun-3giving to me (and anyone who wanted to look) a view of a sky–a sky so vast it makes one dizzy to look up….then I saw it—

Sun-2A true look at the sun!  A perfect gift from the heavens!

At first I thought I was seeing the moon. Once home I looked up the moon phases on the calendar and I realized we were in a sliver of a moon phase so this truly was the sun!

What an amazing and joyful site…to actually see the sun without blinding myself!
