From Northern Illinois — Wednesday, May 18, 2022

Hi Linda.

I was listening to the St. Louis Cardinals baseball game this evening when I noticed the sun was sneaking out to the West. There were still the dark rain clouds to the South. I figured I better go take a look to the East.


WOW!  A double rainbow!

Thank you ever so much from me and everyone who reads my blog!

The Wind Came Again and Again and Again — Monday, May 9, 2022

We are having HUGE wind storms

Dirt fills the air, the sky, and our eyes

It blows fast enough, and hard enough that I almost tip over into the ditches several times

It ruffled the hen’s feathers—in general giving all us headaches.

Gradually it dies down (to return tomorrow)

Gradually we are waking up to truly warmer days full of sunshine!

Step Three—On the Land

Once the headgate is opened, Dad and Mom have forked out all the ditches in use, then it’s time to start the water into the fields.

Water is never, ever wasted.  It goes into one field and runs to the bottom of that field in a small ditch, which takes the water to another field.

This goes on until the last field of the farm,

then that water goes back into the canal to go to other farms along the way.

This happens over and over and over again until the water winds up in the Colorado River.

Water is never wasted ever!

We move to step four—keep watching this place for more interesting information about the backbone of our Farm! (and wonderful photos of ME!)

The Land Speaks with Many Voices — Sunday, November 7, 2021


We are in the waning days of Autumn now,

Beautiful days full of Loud Joyful Expressions

Compared to the soft kind pronouncements of Spring

Each day the music of Fall sings to me;

Filling our dreams with songs of falling leaves

The voice of the God(s)

Gifting us with beautifully adorned trinkets of colors and lights

The daily small treasures of Autumn.

From my heart to your world,



A Cloud Sat Down on the Farm —- Sunday, October 3, 2021

We woke up to fog one day after the rain

The world is all silent and close

Moisture settling all around us, and on  us,

The quiet washing the world anew!

From my world to your heart,


A Wonderful Omen, a Wonderful Gift — Tuesday, March, 2, 2021

Hi there!

Here is a double rainbow we saw today after a thunderstorm this afternoon staying with friends in St George, Balonne Shire, southern Queensland.

It was definitely the sign of a blessing; St George is on Stage 4 water restrictions, and our friends drink rainwater. The rain of the past 2 days has replenished their tanks.

Stunningly beautiful!  All green and wet and full of blessing!

Thank you, Kate!

I just love receiving gifts of rainbows from everyone.  They are a walk-together-in the rain.
