A Thrill of Euphoria — Wednesday, November 11, 2020

We had gusty winds on Monday

Winds rough enough the weeds were jerked loose and flung here and there

The dust was rather eye-filling, to say the least.

Still, the murmuration of the birds was delightful (see the wee sundog in the sky? Colder air on its way to us)

The swirl and 

And the joy of the  Red-Winged Black Birds fills our sky each and every day.

Their dance is delightful to see so I go out often trying to capture them rippling in the air.

No matter what the wind does. (Scattering weed seed here and there for next year’s crop) 🙂

Bringing in storms

The buffeting wind can, also, scatter clouds giving us sunshine.

The Moon-lighted Darkness— Monday, November 11, 2019

On a wee walk-about in

The moon-washed world

Boomer and I strolled taking photos in the November cold

The vibrations of the night were full of ghosts, sprites, elves, and Winter-time dwarves.

Prowling silently throughout the darkening land.

These wee unseen creatures stalking alongside the predators of the night

Shimmering mysteriously suddenly there

Adding to the unusualness of a star caught in the glow of the moon.

The world…strange, glowing, twinkling

Everything and everyone in the shadowy darkness

All caught in the silver moonlight.

Brief Cheers! — Sunday, November 11, 2018

Finally, after staying steady and ‘keeping after it’

I got the leaves off the yard!

Although I thought the leaf covered lawn was rather pretty, the lack of leaves is much more appealing.

SMILING BIG HERE!!  🙂

A Storm Rolled in Last Night—-Wednesday, November 11, 2015

We woke up to snow this morning!  Although it IS melting, it’s still snow.  Sure seems early this year.

Off-we-goTerry and I worked on the fire roads.  We have one that is a pain in the ….well, you know what.

Fire-road-1Yep, Terry is stuck…that’s a chain, whereby I’m pulling him out. This particular spot is a real struggle.  Twice a year we clear and clean and create making it safe to get to the rest of the farm.

Fire is a mighty and very scary thing.

Helping-MomBoomer worked right along side of us, up and down, back and forth…over and over again.

Right now the wind is blowing, sharp and cold; pushing the clouds toward the north and the east, mud is appearing where the snow once was.  Work on the fire roads has ended for the year.
