A Sweet Kiss Goodnight—Sleep Tight—All is Well, Thursday, January 19, 2023

45 minutes to Sunset—when the world has an amazing pink lucent glow—then fades into soft shades of gray—on into the dark of night.

(I love this time of day!  Just LOVE it!)

It’s like that goodnight kiss your Momma and Daddy gave you way back when you were a toddler.

A perfect ending to the day, with sweet dreams for the night.

From my world to your heart!



The Adventures of TLC Cai-Cai on Wednesday—-Farm Life Series Chapter 2, The First Season, WINTER!!! Wednesday, January 19, 2022

Winter usually comes in, Winter!

Well, for us, here on the western slope of the Great Divide, in the state of Colorado, winter usually happens…how would I know?  I’ve only been alive one year.

Well, my year started in WINTER, so this is my second Winter!

An expert I am then—winter usually happens sometime in December, before Christmas, and after Thanksgiving.  It can happen at any moment or take F.O.R.E.V.E.R. to come.

When we have that F.O.R.E.V.E.R. to come— then the weather people say we are in a drought.  This means we are still waiting for the weather to come in a blanket

to cover the earth with clean shiny snow.

Otherwise, we just wait.  The air does cool/cold down.

It colds way down so Mom starts sorting, hauling, and loading up the woodstove with firewood: plus getting up at night to make sure the fire is going.

Once all that starts, then I know it’s WINTER!

Dropping Low the Sun Glow Lights the World —- Tuesday, January 19, 2021

This time of year, {even though we are past the winter solstice} the sun seems to drop down behind the Uncompahgre Plateau quickly

Causing the night to rise up– onto the earth

And the frigid winter air to cool to a numbing upon the skin

Still, I like to walk a spell in the growing shadows, crowding upon the land

Feeling the air change…not just in temperature

But in the frosty particles of sky landing on my skin.

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,


After Being all in a Fluster, I can now be Fluffed Up :) —- Sunday, January 19, 2020

A thousand tiny minutes and lots of sewing (and taking out)

I got another quilt done.  Those terrible corners on the outside band drove me into a whirling, wheeling misery.

But…they are done now.  Thank Heavens.

This is New to Me and it’s Stunning—-Monday, January 19, 2015

A good friend of mine sent me a link from her FaceBook page to mine with these stunning photos of Fire Rainbows.

Fire-Rainbows‘Fire rainbows’ are a rare phenomenon that only occur when the Sun is higher than 58° above the horizon and its light passes through cirrus clouds made of ice crystals. At the right alignment, the ice crystals act as a prism, and refract the light to look like a rainbow. Photo by Livescience.

They are amazing!

Also there is a whole discussion about the type of clouds on the FaceBook site and some sort-of  ugly comments of people to each other about the phenomenon.  I’m just warning you, so if you read them you will understand they are not something I’m involved with…I just loved this rare and beautiful sky and wanted to share it with you.  The Photo is by Livescience–as you see— and the photos are on the the Global Coherence Initiative.  I have not really read or studied anything about the Global Coherence Initiative — I really just loved the photos and wanted to share them with you.

Your friend,
