I Asked Terry—Sunday, June 30, 2019

If he missed farming

He said no.

That he still had lots to do out on the outer reaches, the edges of the farm


The pastures are easier to keep and the management of the pastures is much less time consuming, (those little round dots were the bugs flying in the air as we drove through the pasture–I was hoping to get them on camera, but they only showed up as dots.)

But here is a little thing I notice

Ever so often, in a random sort of way

He talks about what he wants to plant next year…

Which fields will hold corn, what field will be a new alfalfa field

So I wonder…is there longing or planning going on.

Either way works for me.

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,



Summer-Tuesday, June 30, 2015

dThe evening skies are just lovely…the colors warm and dramatic

fSometimes the colors even look hot, although it is cooling down by sunset.

My 4-wheeler is broke, the part comes in today.  It will be nice to have it back…walking in the heat is rather ‘smashing’…you come back home feeling two feet tall.  🙂

Enjoy your days and evening, my friends!

Your friend,




Warmth for Winter — June 30, 2014

Terry and I have been hauling wood for winter fires.

Heart-4We have three more large box pick-up loads to go then we should be set for those dreary, long, miserable, horrid, nasty, bitter, ugly cold months. (I guess by this sentence you get the impression that I hate winter. 🙂 )

We are hauling pine beetle killed trees…nothing alive, only downed or standing dead tree.

We gather the firewood on Friday’s, which pretty much zonks me for Saturday.  We were both wondering, after this last load, if we can keep this up for several more years or not.  I guess we will just have to have it delivered, if and when that time comes.

(Although, NOW we do have the propane furnace fixed so we have a very expensive back-up if we need it.)


While tossing and sorting I happened to look up and see a very cool site!


A HEART!  I’m going to save this little gift of love and put it some place rather cool in my garden!

Clouds-3A gift of love from nature!
