A Sweet, Quiet Melody — Monday, July 26, 2021


A wee, but perfect, little snack bar

OH!  Sharing with a Robin

Here, try this little bit I plucked out of the tray just for you—something light, bright, and oh, so sweet. 🙂

From my world to your heart,


Finally, Sunday, July 26, 2020

In between rainstorms and hissing wind

The second cutting of the second alfalfa field

Is stacked and heading to other homes

It can rain all it wants to now. And the rain will be greatly appreciated.

Everything Surrounding Us Last Night was Exhilarating—Thursday, July 26, 2018

That beautiful, wonderful sky!

The heat wore on yesterday…humidity in the high 30% range. (High for the high mountain desert region)

The wind hot and streaming to us in waves; pushing large swatches of clouds into our area

But I’m not complaining…the sky was stunning as the sun sank in the west

Coloring the thousands of clouds in soft colors

Turning each cloud on the horizon and overhead into such a riot of unusual colors

I felt like I was swallowed in hues, and tints, and tones of soft-hued blush

The heat lightning played on the Paonia and Gunnison mountains…but here we bathed in color.

Then the sun finally set causing the colors to burst forth in vivid tones only the Gods know how to use.

It was amazing!

From my world to your heart,




Flying Serene —-Wednesday, July 26, 2017

Terry came in from making waste ditches…(see the mud) announced that it’s so muddy he was having trouble.

Totally frustrated he called John Deer to order parts for his cultivator (which had broken down just before he finished this years cultivation)

Yes, they had them on stock.

“Okay! I be right there.”  he hung up the phone, asked me if I wanted to run to Montrose…

Well, not at this time….Linky and I were waiting for her BFF to show-up so they could head out to http://www.lakepowell.com/rv-camping/bullfrog-rv-campground/  for the week.

“Alright, I think I need a vacation…everything is going wrong right now.”

“How about a little ride in the go-fast car?”  I asked, with a smile on my face.

“Yes, Grandpa!  That’s a vacation!”  and young girl’s voice chimed in.

“Sounds good to me!” he replied.
