After a predictably BORING morning,
There is nothing better than to shatter the calm
With a little bit of WILD horseplay!
Your friend on a western Colorado farm,
(And T’Ata plus Glory)
Sometimes there are things within seemingly ordinary days
That blaze forth into my heart, mind, and soul
Often times its something so tremendously common, yet so toweringly wonderful
They seem to blanket the earth, or the sky, whichever it may be
The commonplace whispers to me with throbbing messages of distant lands or new places to see
Sometimes it an amazing gift of wings in flight
Or grumbling clouds filled with streaks of light
Silently the every day of common things weigh wonderful upon my life.
From my world to your heart,
Well, here we sit, the corn is still standing, albeit growing shorter and shorter as the days go by. The weather and the wind has started breaking the tops off the stalks, the moisture is keep the corn kernels wet, and the ground is muddy.
Still we wait. There isn’t anything else to do.
Corn harvest…not yet!
Your friend on a western Colorado Farm,
Sometimes you wake up and go…”I’m tired of the same-o-same-o. We need to do SOMETHING different!”
Friday was a day like that for Terry and I.
I’ve been painting in our house for the last several weeks…bathroom, bedrooms, front and back porch; plus all the other things we have been getting done in preparation for the corn harvest. Loading up hay for hay customers, winterizing both yards and pumps and well, the list just goes on an on.
Terry looked at me and asked, “Well, what do you want to do? Got any ideas?”
Yes I did! I have been missing Bladen. It was many weeks ago we saw him. He didn’t come for Halloween, because of basketball games that weekend. (And, of course OTHER more interesting things 8th grade boys like to do.)
So we called Misty and asked if we could come up for Blade’s game with Baggs Wyoming. It would be a fast trip as there were hay customers coming the first thing Saturday morning, but we wanted to see everyone for a couple of hours and watch Blade play.
She told us to come on up, but don’t tell the kids…just drive in an surprise them!
So we did!
Three hours up, a few hours there, then three hours back. It was a nice break! Even nicer to get to watch Blade play.
Look at these outstanding Sundogs!!!! Charlotte’s husband was on a fishing trip and shot these amazing photos of two sundogs.
We are gradually warming up here. Which is a very good thing!
We got the house winterized….THANK HEAVENS!!!! Terry and I were really getting tired of that house and the pressure it was creating. YAY!!!!
Tomorrow we will begin to combine all over again. It will be nice to have the pressure of the house and the harvest overwith. Two more weeks….(I hope).
Well, off now to get something around here done…I think (I know it’s early) I will get my Christmas stuff out and start decorating…heck why not? I’m not having Thanksgiving Dinner (we will be going to our daughter and son-in-law in Grand Junction. 🙂 ) so I can start slowly decorating. Getting in the Sparkle of Christmas——– NICE!
I guess I’m going to have to take the day off — I a bit tired for some reason or other and can’t seem to get myself together.
I will be back Monday, bright and early, that is for certain and for sure.
I hope you have a really nice Sunday!
