You come back feeling an electric zing of
Nothing like the wind in your hair, a fast car, and a break from all the work!
Your friend on a western Colorado farm,
I HATE staying inside when the air is warm, the evenings nice and the weather just perfect for hunting and chasing and eating MICE!
So…if Mom picks me up and takes me inside, shows me a nice dish of cereal and milk; I turn up my nose and run as fast as I can to the back door.
There I meow LOUDLY until she lets me back outside.
I get lots of pets so I know I don’t want to make Mom and Dad mad, but staying inside when the weather is nice—-
Just does NOT work!
I have so much to do.
Mice to stalk
Mice to grab and kill
Mice to bring to Mom or Dad, while meowing loudly. (I want them to know I am doing a very good job)
Mice to eat. Yummy. (Mom said I can’t show you a photo of me eating mice. She said it wasn’t appropriate for the internet.)
Mice to herk back up and leave for the flies. (Or Mom if she sees it. Mom always goes and gets a shovel and buries the herk…silly Mom.)
Then, with a very full tummy, to climb on the chair and sleep or go out to the tractor shed and sleep on Dad’s 630 John Deere.
When Oreo is out and about….I ALWAYS meow to come in and SLEEP WITH MOM!!!
Mindy the Kit Kat of the family!
The sunshine has been wonderful lately
The days warm, but cooling down nicely in the night
Which is lovely, because the amazing spring flowers are still blooming heavily
Brightly offering sweet scents to the air
And color for the eye
So far this spring has been kind to us
A few days of over the top weather, but nothing to be overly concerned
Having shrunk my yard and therefore my workload
Taking care of the three rather large areas have become nice
Gentle on my back and the reduction in the amount of watering and weeding
So now everything is a pleasure, not a ‘job’
From early morn
Through late evening
I feel ever so grateful.
From my world to your heart.
Spring and Summer are such magical times. They are neither dark and dreary, or so brilliantly colored you forget to see the magic happening right in front of your eyes.
Spring and Summer are somehow a time set aside, a time when spirits roam from daylight until dark, and the old gods walk upon the land in that time of Twilight.
Where all those tiny little creatures perform that mystic ritual of building nests
Of this and that
In secret tiny spaces….waiting and sitting and waiting until the whole world is greeted with the joy of bright little babies.
From my world to your heart,
Theresa over at the Run*A*Round hosts a Good Fences Thursday. Hop over there and see what she has posted and then check out what other cool fences and gates are around the world.
Here is my contribution for this week….
You are all welcome to join in…just hop over to Run*A*Round Ranch and link your fence or gate post each Thursday.
For some reason my internet has been down until right now.
We wait now for the alfalfa to dry down…usually about a week if the weather holds sunny and hot. Sometimes faster if we have wind to go with it.
But if we have rain (fingers crossed this doesn’t happen) we stand a very good chance of the rain ruining the crop. So no rain for AT LEAST TWO MORE WEEKS!
The alfalfa need to morph into hay, then it needs to be baled into bales and hauled into the hay yard to be sold.
This shot of the hummers is a little better…I only cut off two of the little flying jewels, but I did get one looking good.
Last night the jet streams were a delightful pink
Off to work in the yard!
