Talk to the Stars—-Wednesday, May 16, 2018

So do you talk to the stars?

Sometimes I do…they are so beautiful, so amazing, so glittering, so vast.

Sometimes I stand on the ditch bank…my arms flung wide and tell our farm…how beautiful it is.

Even after a long day of working in my yard, helping with the irrigation, cleaning the house, painting fences…when the pain in my arms and back almost blind me

I still feel the most profound gift of this amazing place where Terry and I live.

Sometimes the breathtaking life surrounding us –is like a spell… The bats flitting in the gathering gloom, the last of the Barn Swallows feeding on the mosquitoes, the stars just starting to appear in the darkening heavens, the soil thriving and growing plants, the plants forming from little seeds,

It all weaves a pattern, like a spell.

From my world to your heart,




The Earth is Full of Singing —- Thursday, May 10, 2018

The time of idleness is over

The silence of winter is OVER!!!

The work has increased twenty-fold from winter

But…it is never a burden!

From my world to your heart,



Corn’s Up!


And the lilacs are blooming!


Plus everywhere I get to pick up plastic shopping bags!  Even in the lilac bushes!  The wind has been amazing this year, bringing with it dust, dirt, mud rain, and other people’s trash. 


As long as there is snow in the mountains surrounding us we will have wind, but once the visible snow is gone it stops.  We have had more wind than normal, so possibly there is more snow in ‘them thar hills’ than normal? 

Today it is around 81*, lovely.  No wind, just sun and blue, blue skies.  Ahhhh.
