Echoes of Our Day —-Thursday, May 25, 2023

Good Morning!

Off we go—early, early—-everything is planted now

Everything receives its own share of the water

Storm clouds build every afternoon—although, we have only received sprinkles so far.

Tractor work is slowing down but will build up again come haying season

A quick check at noon, to make sure all the siphon tubes are running.

Then as the summer golden hour arrives we head back out for the last set of the day

Finishing up just as the luminous violet turns into night

From our world to your heart,



The End—Wednesday, May 25, 2022

I was looking at clouds, as we changed water one day —this cloud looks like it had a definite end; as at the end of a funnel

Then the End of the day colored this set of clouds

In a most glorious way

The End of the day’s sunlight!

The South End of our farm is called the Upper End an end of the farm, on the Southside.

The Last Set of the day—a type of end to our work 🙂

The End, just before the rest, after, which, comes the Beginning!

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,



Thankfully! Thank You Ever so Much, for your Prayers, Tuesday, May 25, 2021

Terry is starting to feel so much better now.  It’s been a huge long-haul, but we are making it.

Six Doctors, four trips to the emergency room, a three-day stay in the hospital, then an operation for gallbladder, plus thyroid medication, plus finally being able to eat again…(he lost 20 pounds) the corner to health is being turned.

What a huge marvelous blessing!

I am so grateful for all your prayers, good wishes, hand-holding across the internet, and hugs both near and far.

You are all such wonderful caring people!

From my heart to your heart,



The Waning Moon—Thursday, May 25, 2017

Last night was a beautiful night, full of stars and a slender sickle of moon;  rising slowly; leaving behind the curve of the earth

Gradually lifting itself from behind the trees and the glow of the earth’s atmosphere.

Terry was working so Boomer, Mindy and I walked early.

I like to rest on one of Terry’s farm implements, for a spell. Away from the moon shadows cast by trees, leaves, buildings—there I lean soaking up the silver light of the moon.

On quiet nights my mind fancies the Old Ones walk the land… sometimes I think I can see and feel them, other times there is nothing there; only the wind stirring the leaves of the growing crops.

Oh well…so it is.

From my world to your heart,


My New Project—-Wednesday, May 25, 2016

I have always, always wanted a water feature. So I have finally created one!


It is all put together from found items here on the farm—including the rocks!

Pond-2I’ve order my pond plants.  After I get them planted I will show you how it looks!  I’m really excited!  Such a fun little project!

Your friend always,


Flying Low — May 25, 2014

The other day Terry and I went for a small ride, just to break up the monotony.  We headed up to Blue Mesa Reservoir and then on into Gunnison. While traveling into the town of Gunnison we happened to see this low flying flying machine heading right toward us

hhhh How cool is this!

hhhAnd we were stopped at the stop light AND…

hhI had my camera out sitting right by me!

hThey flew along the side of the car close enough we could read the words on the side of the jet!

We rolled the windows down and enjoyed the whole sensation…power, speed and excitement all rolled into just the few minutes it took for the red light to change into a green for go!

The whole thing was pretty darn exciting.

After a quick lunch we drove home.  The water in the Blue Mesa Reservoir is slowly rising it has a long ways to go until it reaches the normal spot on the sides but it so much better than last year.

Your Farm Friend,
