Winter all around us
Still—the sky drooping deep into the mountains
It looks like a good water year—so far. (Holding breath)
Your friend on western Colorado farm,
There is always—-and I do mean ALWAYS!
But in this case (this year) There are TWO!
These two walk over the fences like the fences aren’t even there!
At least twice a day!
Such a pain!
I looked back, as Terry and I were pushing the cows back into the field and saw TLC helping us.
What a cat!
WHAT NAUGHTY COWS!
Your friend on a western Colorado farm,
The woodpile is growing somewhat thinner…leaving me with huge base chunks of tree stumps, so Terry dug out the wood splitter
Giving us lots of more pieces of wood to heat the house with. I enjoyed this satisfying bit of physical work in a thin heat of afternoon.
Later that evening, as the sun started to set…the sky became a kaleidoscope of rotating lovely colors
Your friend on a western Colorado Farm,
As the sun faded, the shadows started growing long and dark under the mighty trees growing in the Black Forrest of Colorado.
Stepping outside to hear the hoot owls calling to one another high in the pine trees, my long time reader and friend, Elaine, watched as the night caused solid objects to loose their depth. Gradually everything slowly brighten, with a sheen of silver, as the moon light rose over the tops of the majestic pines—- lighting her world in the magic of the moon’s glow.
How lucky we are. Thank you, Elaine!
Terry and I were outside splitting firewood yesterday as the day started to end…colder air was descending and the sun was sitting.
As we worked the sky started filling up with the most amazing, scrumptious, delightful rosey glow. It started out as a very pale pink.
The world is a truly stunning and beautiful place!
