The Adventures of Boo Berry Betty on Friday—- No More Puppies, July 15, 2022

I had to go to the vet—what an adventure!

I don’t know why.  Mom said it was important.

Now I have to wear this thing for two weeks!

Mom said no more puppies for me.

We had Rain, Softly Gentle Rain — Thursday, July 15, 2021

Even though we have hay down (sigh)

The gift of rain blessed our part of the world.

A simple necessity, and a not so small joy!

A Few Magic Storms Arrived — Wednesday, July 15, 2020

If I could choose one single moment to live inside for all eternity, it would be that.  Fredrik Backman, Things My Son Needs to Know about the World

Monday we had storms, off and on all-day

Off and on the rain would blow in, falling in heavy coin-sized drops, then moving on; the ground staying mostly dry.

Our busy days of work continued

Completing one chore

After another

Then the skies would clear and I would think…”I guess that is the end of the storms.”

Back again they would blow in.

But the ending…OH MY, THE ENDING of the DAY!


Complete with the most unusual and delightful Rainbow!

Which grew darker and more red as the night crept onto the land!

WOW!  I kept saying to myself. WOW!  This is an amazing gift from the Heavens!

From my world to your heart,

The Fourth Dimension is Time—-Sunday, July 15, 2018


A Geometrical and Scientific concept— where Time is a part of the whole.

I’m running behind right now.  Not just in Time, but in each and every facet of the moments which make up my life.

I know I’m complaining at this moment, although I don’t wish to be protesting, ranting, screaming.  Still, I understand this will read like a huge big cry-baby whine.

I’ve reached a place whereby I just want to sit drifting…my thoughts in wisps


Jason’s horse TeAta

Nothing to do, nothing to think about, nothing to worry over, nothing to finish so I can ‘get to’ that other thing—Just void, blank, empty

I just want to drift on fragrant little breezes with nothing much to do

So, methinks, I might finish up some stuff, sit some other things aside, and close my mind and actions until company comes at four.  The house, the yard, my world will be whatever it is at that moment they arrive.  And I will be alright with it.

I want to enter that fractured space whereby neither time or worries, action and pressure cannot exist.

Once I make it through the complications of DOING NOTHING and come out on the other side…Time will once more be my friend.

Nothing New or Different—Wednesday, July 15, 2015

14Everyday, every four hours the water is checked and possibly changed.

dayI’m still painting on the house…most of the west side is done, I’m working on the eves.  I have part of the south side, but still need to CLIMB up on the roof to do the next level…after than I have the east side (You are looking at the east side) and the north side.

MorningSo from morning until

First-Darkdark we just keep truck’n on.  (At our ages we are very, VERY, thankful we can still truck-on, just as we always have.)

It’s still clouding up and raining here and there and all around.  It’s nice because the rain IS keeping the heat at bay.
