There in the Restless Sky — Tuesday, January 4, 2021

As the snarling, jostling, howling wind roared and flung things here and there.

It also started pushing away the very nasty winter snow

Allowing a wee break in the clouds to gift us with

A snow rainbow!

What a buoyant breath of beauty!

From my world to your heart,


Caught on the Game Camera— Monday, January 4, 2021

Who would have thought a pig would be wandering through on a very cold winter night?

Not Terry and I, but there you have it. A pig caught clearly on the game camera!

We think it must have gotten out of some farmer’s pig and started traveling.

The camera caught the pig moving through Christmas eve.  I haven’t seen it since.

The Perfect Stillness of Golden Light—Thursday, January 4, 2018

My brother and his wife, Cloudy, live in Boulder, Colorado.

Cloudy was walking downtown one late afternoon when that golden hour just after sunset occured

Cloudy said she stood and took photos in all four directions—north, south, east, and west in the graceful, soft hour before the coming of dark.

I loved the photos!

Cloudy graciously shared them with me, so I could share them with you.

This perfect solitude amazing color,  in the heart of downtown Boulder.

Farm Sale Purchase—-Wednesday, January 4, 2017

The season for farm sales has started.  Sometimes this is not a good thing…farmer’s losing their farm, because of foreclosure, but other times it’s due to a farmer and his wife selling out and moving.

Yesterday’s farm sale was just that…the farmer and his wife were selling out to move to California — where all their kids live now.  No one in the family wanted to move back and take over the farm, so the parents were going to move out to the Land of Milk and Honey and live with them.


The day was a good day for a sale….bright and sunny with intermittent clouds.

It was also a good day to haul the trash to county dump.

(These are old photos I forgot to take my camera with me)


Once in awhile there was a sharp, piercing little wind. Not bad, but enough to chill you if you didn’t wear proper clothes.  (I had on socks and close-toed shoes 🙂 )


Late in the afternoon Terry came home with his new treasure

set-upIt didn’t take us long to get the diesel fuel tank out of the truck and sat up…to wait patiently for the new season of farming.

(It looks like we are farming one more year. 🙂 🙂 )
