Heartbeats from the Earth — Thursday, July 7, 2022

Walking through the corral I SAW

An Anthill shaped like a heart!

Then, later on, in a clearing on the road


There is nothing so beautiful and full of joy

As all the heartbeats from the Earth.

From my world to your heart,



Exquisite, I Really Can’t Describe It Any Better —- Wednesday, July 7, 2021

Those flesh and blood creatures

Who share the farm with us.

The daily hum, of not just our movement on the farm

But the songs,

The physical movement

Even the air

The light.

All hooked together; like a large crochet bedspread.

From my world to your heart,


When the Corn is in the Silk, —The Deer Come Back to the Farm, Tuesday, July 7, 2020

Now that the corn is in the silk, the deer migrate back to the farm.

So I sat up a couple of game cameras to see if, and when, they had arrived

Deer are notorious for eating the silk off the little corn ears.

Corn has lots of predators—

Bugs, humans, skunks, raccoons, and DEER!

Yep…Here they are.  🙂  We love seeing them.  Terry worries about the corn loss, but we don’t do anything about it.  Some for them, some for us, is our thought.

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,



A Thousand Sunsets—Sunday, July 7, 2019

In that Pulse of time

Called Evening

That Forever place where the air mists

And reaches into the sunrays

Or is it the other way round

The sunrays reach up and beyond the shadows

Tickling the clouds; washing them in the sunshine of color.

Sometimes sunsets only flick the clouds in pastels

the Air turning into lavenders and purples

Or a wind shifting drift of sherbert vapor.

Then, in a rare moment, those amazingly special sometimes, when the colors are like flames

Lighting up not only the air, and water, but also the earth and everything on it!

From my world to your heart,




Thank you—Thursday, July 7, 2016


“Oh, you’re the best friends anybody ever had.  And it’s funny, but I feel as if I’d know you all the time, but I couldn’t have, could I?”–Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz

You are, you know.  You have been there for me in all sorts of ways, through the good times and the times when My Heart Shattered.

You have picked me up—held my hand—and helped me moved forward.

Sunset I am so grateful for all of you.  Thank you.



Quickly There and Now Here—Tuesday, July 7, 2015

We took a very quick trip to Craig, Colorado.

PonderYears and years ago Terry was a plumber. Also, he knows how to do house wiring from all his years in the Electrical trade…therefore, when Kelly called and asked if Terry would come up and help with a small remodel he was doing for their house.

The answer was:  “Sure, I’ll put the water in the pasture and we will head up”!

LUCKY LUCKY Terry and I!

Your friend,



Dance of the Veils— Monday, July 7, 2014

VeilsOur second daughter and third child, loves Middle Eastern Dance.  She has been doing this for years…I’m not sure how many years….maybe around 15-20 years.  I’d have to sit down and figure it out, but probably not going to.  🙂

She is the one closest to us in the red, with the royal blue veil.

Veils-2There!  That’s a better photo.

I was glad that Tally was with us…she loves music and sparkles and glitters and singing and dance.

We both (Tally and I) agreed that seeing the beautiful women dancing and twirling was really sparkly and fun!

Your friend,





July 7, 2013

I have a pair of birds (of which type I do not know) who have made a delightful little nest in the lilac tree.


They used lots of different things to make the nest including pieces from one of the old tarps we have out by the grain bins.  🙂

I always have to smile when I walk by and look up.


They don’t…both Mom and Dad scream alarms and take off swooping and flying to hurry me on by.


Next week Terry should cut our second cutting of alfalfa… sometime around the 12th or so!

The summer is flying by.  Only one more cutting of alfalfa here and then it will be fall.

I am hanging onto every day for I really dread WINTER!

Today is lovely so we are off to see some ancient Indian dwellings.  I’ll have photos for you tomorrow (I hope)

Have a good one!
