At Some Point —- Sunday, May 22, 2022

“At some point in life, the world’s beauty becomes enough.  You don’t need to photograph, paint, or even remember it.  It is enough.” — Toni Morrison 

When I was little my Mother used to tell me, that whenever we had fog (Fog is a rare and beautiful thing here in the High Mountain Desert)

That a cloud came to Earth for a rest.

Saturday morning, we woke to a cloud sitting on our part of the Earth; resting.

From my world to your heart,

Linda

 

Trip with a Great Group of Friends — Tuesday, May 17, 2022

We belong to the Delta Street Rodder’s Car club

Every month someone in the club volunteers

To lead a group of (however many people who belong to the club) want to go on a cruise

For our cruise in May

(the April cruise went to Arizona and traveled Route 66)

Sam and Kyla led us across the Colorado Monument

Where we stopped off an on to see the sights

Met lots and lots and lots of the two-wheeled riders on the road

Those who could drove with their tops down

The curves were many —- complete with several fun tunnels

A stop at the Visitor’s Center

The air was perfect, the sunshine plentiful

Here is a map of the road

We ended at Munchie’s in Fruita, where Sam and Kyla had a reserved table set up and waiting for us.

Then we all headed our separate ways.

A perfect day!

Survivors of Winter — Monday, May 16, 2022

I always wonder how the wee little animals do

Mr. P with his feathers are shinny and georgous

The silent winging of our resident hawk

The happy peaceful feeling

Being out THERE on the farm.

When the Going Gets Tough —- Sunday, May 15, 2022

The wind is so over-the-top

And I am so OVER IT!!

See all the trash blown in from everywhere!

Feeling sorry for myself and all the extra work

I looked down—and the Earth gave me a kiss!

A wonderful heart rock!

Smiling all the way…rake in hand.

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

Linda

 

The Adventures of TLC Cai-Cai on Friday—-Corn, Friday, May 13, 2022

Dad is planting corn,

He got it all planted

Then he went out and knocked down the rows

Now Dad and Mom wait

( of course, they don’t sit and wait)

After the corn gets a tiny sprout

They will start the water on the cornrows

Soon the tiny seeds will make

BABY corn PLANTS!

As for me—I am busy keeping the farmyard

SAFE!

The Upper End —- Thursday, May 12, 2022

In spite of the wind

The work goes on.  Here we are tearing down fences to make more pastures

Boomer and Fuzzy’s little creek—the one they loved to splash in is flowing strong

The Upper End, on a day without wind

Linda

The Adventures of TLC Cai-Cai on Friday — Well, That’s About It —Friday, May 6, 2022

Outside of all the bending, stooping, picking up, laying down, walking, walking, walking, shoveling.

There is always and forever the delight in being out on the ditch bank watching the seeds pop up out of the ground, growing straight and tall.

There is so much happiness in being a farmer, and a protector of the land and the water.

And having a wonderful, furry kitty.  Kitties are an important part of this farm.

There are so many things kitties do: we hang out with our people when they are stressed and just need to hear a purring voice,

we follow along as they work in the farmyard, keeping a silent, watchful eye on all they do,

we keep monster mice away from the house, the feed, the chicken pen, and everything on the farm,

we warm beds in the night, (sleeping RIGHT BETWEEN our people!), and lick them in the face when it’s time to get up in the morning.

(Meow—it’s hot!)

 

Kitties are very, very important!

Thanks for coming along.  We, (Mom, Dad, and I) appreciate your stopping by and reading.
